Thanks, I'll try that today. I'm using baking sheets for pressing both pretreatment and the print. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

Are you using silicone coated paper?

I assumed it was silicone coated. The distributor brought a couple of boxes. I have to check tomorrow.

From our experience we have found that the best results when heat pressing the finished print is to use silicone coated parchment paper cover sheets. You want to get a heavy weight paper which can then be used multiple times.

The paper was quite thin. I'll have to do more research on what I can get here in Japan. Thanks again, Harry. Heavy weight silicone coated parchment paper... How do I say that in Japanese?

In a pinch you can use the teflon coated permanent sheets like we used to use in the old days for pressing letters and transfers on. Two things though, you must completely "hover dry" the printed garment first so as to not smear any ink that is printed on the shirt and make sure you completely wipe clean the sheet before each use.

I use mine all the time, works just fine and virtually lasts forever. Slow though...

The only issue with the Teflon is it makes it shining in most cases...it can also make the hand feel a lil more rubbery. I have actually used Teflon to create a reflective effect on a simulated rhinestone design I did a few years ago.

I actually prefer the silicon coated Kraft paper (from Stahls) for both pretreating and curing inks. I just use a separate piece for each process. The Kraft paper will last for dozens of uses before needing to be replaced.

True but I don't believe it's that noticeable at least not with what I have done and after a washing or two any shine tends to goes away. Most customers don't know the difference anyway.

In a pinch it is still a viable option.

I'll be getting some teflon paper to cover the bottom heat press platen. I was going to use it for the sleeve platen attachment. Silicone coated Kraft paper. I'll remember that as well. One problem that I've already encountered with the thin baking sheets is that when the paper gets wrinkled, the shirt also gets wrinkled.

That is what happens with parchment paper. The paper will start to wrinkle and then you're heat pressing the wrinkles into your shirt. The wrinkles will come out with a wash but nobody wants to hand a customer a shirt with wrinkles pressed on. The thin paper may be good for only one use before wrinkling. The heavier weight paper can be used for 5 to 6 times before starting to wrinkle so, in the end, it is actually much cheaper to use.

You can check with a restaurant supply or baking supply distributor in Japan to see if they carry silicone coated parchment paper. Also known as baking pan liner.

Default Re: What did you print on your F2000 today?

I did some testing today and I found the best results for Heavy black on White shirts is to hover the heat press 30sec and than press with Super light pressure.

If I dont do this it kind of feels like a satin print or maybe a burnt feeling

settings I used 170C 50sec

I also use Baking paper but after a couple of shirts it curls and starts to crinkle, it would be good to have a permanent solution

Cheers,
Ryan
