I also find the lower press time, although a little bit longer than Luis', better. You should also know your press as even two same models from the same manufacturer can have 2 different "ideal" time.

I followed my supplier's instructions: for dark transfer, use 130C for 15 secs. I also stretch the shirt before and after pressing which I read on the threads here.
Any solution for my problem, pls... Thanks in advance
If a transfer is peeling after wash, assuming a quality product which this is, then the issue is typically, time, temperature or pressure related. Assuming you followed the instructions with respect to time and temperature then I would suggest more pressure on your heat press.

The press time, temperature etc. are available in the instructions. If you don't have them, they are on our website under instruction sheets. If you are following the correct press time and temperature then you need to increase the pressure on your heat press.

Default Re: problems with 3G Jet-Opaque transfer paper

Hey guys... I just started experimenting with my JW 3-G Opaque transfer papers.. Using MIS HT inkset (8 colors) pigment ink, Epson Stylus R2880, heat press set at 350 degrees F for 30 seconds at 6 pressure. I let the print sit for 20-30 minutes before pressing, and placed parchment paper between TP and shirt (Tultex 100% cotton ringspun).

With the above mentioned actions performed, I can't get my transfer paper to stick!! Soo frustrated, any suggestions???

Also, is there a particular plotter brand anyone recommends? My x-acto knife is just not "cutting" it. Heh.

Did you remove the backing before you pressed the opaque?]

The transfer and shirt will over cook if you press taht long. Your heat press actual temp might be different from the display. Vary the pressure or temp or time. Use between 6 to 12 seconds. Lower or increase the pressure and temp in small increments. Cut up a blank transfer in small pieces so you don't waste transfer and ink. Use each piece on scrap fabric for testing to find the sweet spot.

I don't use suggested settings. The settings will vary from suggested settings between different heat presses. I use 6 to 12 seconds with opaque to prevent over cooking the adhesive and minimize dye migration on cotton blend.

The 3-G Jet Opaque paper is the lightest of all the papers for dark shirts on the market. It also has the softest drape of all the papers for darks. This is as good as you can get with heat press for darks. On pastels and lights jet pro soft stretch has absolutely no stiffness added to the shirts. That is the "dream paper" but it needs to be used only with pigment inks. Not dye based inks.

You press
5 sec.with teflon on top of the shirt,
then press with teflon sheet again on top of shirt my temp/time is 165C/20 sec and
repress for 10 sec with again teflon.

I don't quite get it. Is the 5 second a pre-press without the transfer paper?

Your pressing time is too long. About 6 seconds would be enough for the main press. Thre is really no exact rules so you must find out what's best for you (in conjunction with your wash test) but 6 seconds should be close.

Is the shirt washed inside out or reversed? Did you scrub the image area?

My experience with my son's shirt is minor fading in 4-6 washes. Minor cracks occur about 10 washes. I did not monitor the washes but figures should be pretty close.
