Default 3G Jet Opaque difficult to peel off from backing paper

The printed transfer is very difficult to peel off the backing paper. Anyone had this problem before?

Banko. Try making a small tear in the backing paper. That should make it easier to peel.

Does 3G curl up pre-press like blue grid?

Haven't had it curl up but I'm in low humidity. I've noticed If I'm zipin off excess with an exacto, angling blade inward (tip of handle out, tip of blade in) gives me a tiny bit of material sticking out further than the paper to get that corner started. I'm not positive but I'm thinking sometimes it's a little easier to get started if its been trimmed and has set around for a couple of days before peeling.

If it gets warm on the press before pressing, it will curl.

Yeh, I was thinking if the product is layin around or stored. If the shirt is hot/warm I gotta try to land it in the right position, flat, on the first try. gets supper soft with just a little heat. worth spending the time & $ getting use to it, It's a great product.

The easiest way I have found to peel this paper is simply lay flat on the table and run you thumb nail on the table into the corner of the paper. It will usually tip up so you can get a hold of it. Or stretch to tear the paper but I personally always tear the sheet also.

Hello.

I am having the same problem. After printing and cutting with the Silhouette Cameo. When i start peeling the backing, some of it sticks to the transfer and ruins it at it is almost impossible to peel. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

I contour cut it right through rather than kiss-cutting it (using a carrier mat) and have no troubles separating the transfer from the backing paper.

Use a piece of masking tape on the front of the transfer and another on the backing sheet down at one corner. It will peel right apart. Use care in removing the tape so you don't stretch the transfer and try to keep the tape away from the printed image. You just need to grab a small piece of it to get it started.

(edit) I just realized this thread is real old...
