Hey mate,
Cheers for the info
I got a pillow and it works a lot better but I keep getting ghosting from the Teflon sheet. I actually got the sheet from gjs so it's good quality. I tried wiping it over after pressing but it's as if it is imprinting itself into the sheet. I've attached a photo for you to show you what I mean. I am pressing at 204 degrees Celsius for 42 seconds. If I can get rid of the bloody faded print I'd be right haha. Thanks heaps for your help!

ok humour me....... Take the sheet of and on the same orientation. Try not to rotate it around.
I have had this before as I said with low quality paper. But I have found that printing solid black you can still get it like you have. Just take the Teflon sheet of and on the same way.
I use the 200 degrees and 45 seconds.

It's really to line it up exactly because the print that doubles on the Teflon sheet is barely visible. I'm gonna try putting baking paper down and then the Teflon sheet over it. Dunno how great that will be as the baking paper is very thin but I will let ya know. Cheers for the help

So I had success with the baking paper laid down before the Teflon sheet. When you fix one problem another arises. The heat resistant tape is now leaving marks on each corner. Think I may try the adhesive spray

Hey Damo,
What brand is the contact adhesive you get from Spotlight?
