How Much Pressure is Needed for Perfect Heat Transfer?

rotary heat transfer machineGarment decoration is a high margin business. As businesses adopt the technology of thermal transfer from vinyl graphics, it is seen that pressure poses the main problem in the process. This is paramount when spot color graphics are applied to fabric through the use of any adhesive-backed film.

Thermal transfer films are of different kinds and thus the temperature and dwell time could vary for each kind of film. Harm causing factors Other than temperature and time, the pressure needs to vary as well. Too little pressure makes a bad product. The graphic will peel off quickly or after some time. It is thus important to make a nice job of it.

For a majority of the thermal transfer products, there is a certain formula consisting of temperature, pressure, and dwell time. When it comes to CAD films, the need for pressure takes the form of a standard guideline, heavy, medium or light. On a few print applications like dye sublimation, the recommended pressure is printed in pounds. To give an example, a ChromoBlast pressure setting is 60lbs. Correct pressure is important for a quality product. Thermal film adhesives get activated by both pressure and heat. Insufficient amount of any of these two will result in the film not sticking to the garment.

A few film manufacturers have claimed that the output stated by heat press is wrong, and the operator needs a digital thermometer to get the needed application temperature. Importance of pressure Heat is only a small component of the equation. Inadequate pressure will make a weak bond between fabric and film. Too light a pressure means the adhesive will not bond with the garment fibers. The latter will be overwhelmed by the stress generated by liner removal. The turbulence, water, and heat of laundering may also cause the applique to move away in case it has not sealed in a proper manner. Thus there is a possibility that there can be sufficient pressure for the first transfer to be held, and insufficient to be a wash-fast.

sublimation paperIt is apparent that correct pressure is extremely important. A thumb rule is to put a little more pressure than recommended. Excessive pressure is perfectly okay for most films. An effective technique to make sure that the print remains fast is to repress that transfer post liner removal. You should peel the liner, and reduce time setting to approximately five seconds, and then press again. This process will assist the film to recover from the weakening effect generated by the liner pulling at the fresh bond between fabric and film.

So Easy! 5 Tips for You to Sublimate Mugs Successfully

Sublimate mugsMugs are so popular in the market, it is due to it’s cheap and personal. When it comes to sublimating mugs, you will want to make sure that you get everything on point, to avoid wastage. To ensure that you hand out your best work, here’re five tips that you should use:

1. Checking completion of cooking

If you want to check if you have cooked the mug properly or not, all you need to do is remove some of the paper from the corners. Take a close look to see if the image you sublimated is of high quality. However, if you are unable to remove the corner portions of the paper, you will need to cook the mug for a longer time. Sometimes, you might have to increase the pressure, as it wasn’t enough.

2. Cooling after completion of sublimation

Once you have completed sublimating the image on to the mug, you will have to remove the transfer swiftly so that you can start the cooling process. The reason why you need to cool the mug is to bring the sublimation process to a complete halt. If you have to cool a ceramic mug, you can keep it in water along with the transfer at room temperature.

3. Correct measurements

When you want to sublimate the image correctly on the mug, make sure that you measure between the tapering parts and adjust the templates accordingly. The reason is that you won’t get a proper print if you directly sublimate the print on to the tapered section.

As there won’t be proper pressure and contact at the handles of the mug, make sure that you leave at least ¾ – inch gap at the bottom and top of the handle for a good print.

heat press4. Oven temperature

To cook the mug properly, you should make sure that the sublimation oven temperature is 400 degrees. As most sublimation ovens don’t display the right temperature, it is better to measure it manually, with the help of a thermometer. When the temperature is low, your mug will be under cooked.

5. Trim bottom and top edges of the paper

To prevent the paper from going into the mug’s tapered portion, you should trim the bottom and top. When there is excess paper, it will wrinkle, affecting the quality of the image.

Isn’t that easy to use these five tips to sublimate mugs successfully?

Mistakes Need to Avoid When Using Heat Transfer Paper

If you are using a heat press, a lot of the quality of the final product depends on the heat transfer paper you use. Make sure you pay attention to all the key factors that ensure a perfect print each and every time you use your heat transfer machine. Here’re some tips when using a heat press.

1.Use the Right Heat Transfer Paper Material
Heat transfer paper products are not created equal. There are many different companies who produce heat transfer paper, but they specialize in particular types of T-shirts. Now, if you are going to be producing a certain type of T-shirt, and it doesn’t fall within that range of specialization, failure shouldn’t surprise you. You shouldn’t be shocked when you don’t get the quality that you are looking for. It really boils down to using the right tool for the right job.

Unfortunately, too many T-shirt makers try to use the wrong tool for the wrong job. They pick the wrong transfer paper and they expect their T-shirt to come out the way they assumed it would. Well, this really is assuming too much.

If you have a specific type of T-shirt in mind, make sure that you use the right heat transfer machine, you go through the right process, and most importantly, you use the right heat transfer paper. Otherwise, regardless of how awesome the vinyl design of your T-shirt is, you’re not just going to get the look that you’re looking for. You will miss the mark. It really all boils down to that. It’s really important to make sure that you use the right paper.

sublimation printing2.Use the Right Paper the Right Way
Now, while 50% of the battle involves picking the right heat transfer paper, you’re not in the clear yet. It’s not that simple. There is the other matter of using the equipment the right way. Be aware of the sides of the transfer paper and don’t forget to mirror code your design before printing.

A lot of otherwise creative people come up with these amazing designs, but they forget that there’s actually a mirror mode printing. What happens is that they end up printing the design the wrong way. It’s like you printed a negative. You wouldn’t want to do that so make sure the printer settings are correct so you can print the design on the heat transfer paper the right way.

Next, you need to cut around the image carefully and you must choose a flat surface. If you’re using a heat transfer press machine, make sure it doesn’t have any dust or particles on it that may get in the way of proper heat transfer. Once the heat transfer paper is positioned correctly, make sure the iron is really hot. Don’t press down when the machine is just warming up. The resulting transfer is not going to look all that good. Chances are quite high that you will let go of the heat machine too quickly and the transfer won’t take place optimally.

It’s really important to pay attention to these small details. Today’s article is shared here.

Why You Need a Heat Press Machine for Mugs?

rotary heat transfer machineA heat press for mugs is a machine that is specially designed for printing artwork/graphics onto a mug. With this machine, you can get full color, sharp and vibrant images on your favorite coffee or travel mug. Today, I will briefly introduce some useful knowledge about mug heat press machine.

1.Why You Need a Heat Press Machine?

Numerous upcoming entrepreneurs are recognizing that ‘customized printed mugs’ is a lucrative business idea. Also, it enjoys an exceptional demand in huge corporate organizational setups. If you’re looking to create customized printed mugs for your business, it would be a good idea to buy a high-quality heat press machine, designed especially for mug printing.

Besides professional use, mug heat press machines can also be utilized for personal reasons at home. For instance, you could create customized festive mugs for gifting to your loved ones during Christmas. Similarly, you could make customized ‘couple name mugs’ for your soon-to-be-married friends and present to them as a gift on their wedding.

sublimation printing2.Vertical vs. Horizontal Heat Press Machine

If you’re looking to apply your artwork or graphic slightly higher up (such as on a tall water bottle), then a vertical heat press machine may not be the best thing to work with. This is because it will only cover the item to the extent of its length/height. On the other hand, a horizontal heat press machine allows you to place the graphic anywhere inside the heat press given that both the surface on which the graphic is placed and the press are flat on the graphic when it is pressed down.

It is possible to get pre-designed graphics that can go directly onto your coffee mug or travel mug. But you could also consider purchasing blank sublimation papers and print on them with a printer.
