WHAT YOU NEED TO GET STARTED WITH HEAT TRANSFERRING?

In order to start your heat transfer printing, there are few things you need to acquire. They are affordable and come in different types depending on your purpose.

1. Heat press machine

These comes in different sizes and with different prices. Also, some are unique for some kind of designs. So get the one that matches your need.

Also, check the temperature at the edges and the middle of the plate to be sure that the temperature is uniform. This is to make sure that the designs don’t peel off due to inefficient transfer.

Heat press machine is different in sizes and affordability. If you are starting out newly, go for the simple and cheaper ones. When the business starts growing, get the professional machines that have bigger platen for heat transfers on a large material.

These professional heat transfer machines also have unique features like temperature and time settings, pressure and bigger platen for bulk printing.

2. Inkjet printer

A printer is used to print out your designs, artwork or logo on the paper you will use for the heat transfer. There is a reason why I prefer the inkjet printer to Laser printers.

  • Inkjet printers will produce excellent heat transfer than laser printers.
  • Not all laser jet printers can produce good heat transfer designs.
  • Inkjet printers are more affordable compared to laser jet

Don’t forget to buy your Printer inks/t-shirt ink depending on your choice.

 

3. Carrier paper

This is the paper you will use for the heat transfer on the t-shirt. It usually has a film on one side where your design will be printed on. Be sure to buy the professional carrier grade type instead of the regular paper you see everywhere.

Remember, your choice of transfer paper will also affect your output. However, there are some things you need to check before you purchase a heat transfer paper.

  • Buy a transfer paper vinyl type that has a soft hand after transfer and after washing. It will have enough film to make your designs or images stick to your t-shirt. So you should avoid any paper that feels like a cardboard paper when you touch it.
  • If you want to print on a white t-shirt or any other light colored garment, the choice of the paper to buy will be the clear transfer paper.
  • On dark or deep colored t-shirts, buy an opaque transfer paper.

Believe me, you don’t want to use opaque paper on white and clear paper on dark materials. That will certainly create confusion.

ATTENTIONS FOR LOADING THE MATERIALS ON THE HEAT PRESS MACHINE

Make sure that your garment is straightened when loading it onto the heat press machine. If you carelessly load a wrinkled fabric onto the heat press machine, you will surely get a crooked design as your output.

So unless you want to chase your clients away, take proper care when loading your garments. You may ask, how can I achieve that?

1. First of all, properly align the tag of your garment to the back of your heat press machine.

2. Go to the section that will direct a laser onto to your garment.

3. Make sure to Test the Print: It is advisable to first do a test on a regular paper or an unused garment before applying it to your transfer paper. Making a preview of your printing on an ordinary paper allows you to experiment.

You will get the idea of the outcome of your artwork. Another important thing to do is to properly stretch every garment you want to print on to make sure that your prints do not have cracks in them.

4. Get hold of the Perfect Transfer Paper vinyl: this is the first thing you should do before going ahead to print your Tees. Make sure that the transfer paper you got is the perfect match for the design of your printer.

When you go into the market, you will be surprised to find out that there are assorted brands of transfer papers. Some transfer papers are made for inkjet printers while others are made for laser printers.

Therefore, carry out a thorough research to make sure that the transfer paper you are acquiring is the proper one for your printer. Also, bear in mind that the transfer paper for a white T-shirt is quite different from the one you will use to print on a black T-shirt.

So you see, in your research for transfer papers, many things are involved than just buying the transfer paper that will match your heat press machine.

5. Another important factor to consider is taking Proper care of your Heat-pressed Garment. It is important to take very good care of our already heat-pressed T-shirts if you want them to last very long.
