TechniPrint 4.0 Instructions

TECHNI-PRINT® 4.0 Papers are designed for both oil and oil-less laser printers and copiers. They are for the heat transfer of photos and images to T-shirts, sweatshirts, mousepads, coasters, puzzles, handbags, binders, padfolios, paper, leather, magnets, wood veneer, nylon and more. Choose garments that have a tight weave. This is particularly important when transferring to sweatshirts.

PRINTING
1. Mirror the image.

2. Load the paper so that the image will appear on the coated side of the paper.

3. TECHNI-PRINT® 4.0 Paper should be fed into the copier or printer with the short dimension first (grain long).

4. Start with “Plain Paper” mode. If toner does not fuse completely, adjust to a heavier paper setting.

5. Trim away the unprinted areas of the transfer if desired.


TRANSFERRING
Using a Commercial Heat Press

1. Place the transfer sheet face down on the substrate and press: 30 seconds at 375°F using heavy pressure

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS
Turn garment inside out and wash in cold water using a mild detergent. Do not use bleach. Dry on low heat setting. Do not iron directly on the transferred area.

STORAGE AND HANDLING OF TECHNI-PRINT® 4.0 HEAT TRANSFER PAPERS
Store TECHNI-PRINT® 4.0 Papers in a cool, dry area and do not remove from carton or poly bag until you are ready to use.

OUR INSTRUCTIONS ARE BASED ON USING A DK20S, DK3110 AND/OR A COUNTER TOP CONVECTION OVEN. TIMES AND TEMPERATURES WILL VARY DEPENDING ON WHICH EQUIPMENT YOU USE.
