Yes, I would be interested. I think it would also be great if you could run it through the wash at least 15 times and then show it to us again.

Everything looks great at the start but the end results is what really matters.

I know I am asking for way too much.

one step opaque papers all have basicly the same application instructions, so it would probably help some people, no matter what brand of paper they use.

Did you do the blue grid video?

Here's one for someone with Epson background:
When I use my R800 on blue grid, it is almost impossible to peel the vinyl off the backing sheet. My best luck to date has been to heat the printed paper about 5 seconds at 360 degrees, let it cool, and then peel it. The result has some tendency to stretch but appears to retain the color reasonably accuratelye ven after multiple washings.

Is this a problem caused by the R800 pigment inks?

Rip a little tear in the corner of the paper. The paper shoudl rip, but the vinyl will not. Then it should be easy to peel away the vinyl prom the paper.

Default Re: Blue grid Opaque transfer

I am using an Epson R800 with Blue Grid and find that the vinyl is quite fragile. Is this because of the R800 inks?

As an experiment, I pre-heated a transfer 4 or 5 seconds at 360 degrees. This seems to make the vinyl more resilient, and it peels more easily.

Is the relative fragility just the batch of Blue Grid or would peeling be easier user a 4-ink system like a C88?

Default Re: Blue grid Opaque transfer

The ink shouldnt affect how well the transfer paper peels. How are you preheating the transfer? You are actually pre pressing the transfer? Never heard of that before. It is unneccisary. Just make sure all the moisture is out of the shirt, and that you are using a fresh sheet of parchment. When there is alot of moisture in the shirt, the transfer tends to get sticky, and hard to move around, and when you use an old piece of parchment paper, it can be hard to peel, but other than that I havent had any problems.
