Re: Kiss Cut Paper

Hi guys,
I think it is important to know that although the Kisscut papers are for inkjet printers and they do say you can use the normal ink in your printer, if you do they wont hold up too well in the wash.
You need to use pigment based ink and not the ordinary dye based inks that come in your printer.
Pigment based inks will last up to 40-60 washes without fading.
Kisscut sell thier own brand of pigment based inks too. I did not buy thier ink tho......
I got mine from a company that sells Continuous Ink Supply Systems (CSS) and they sold pigment based inks too, so I got the whole kit for the CSS system from that company instead of Kisscut.

I think the reason people were having so many problems with the kisscut papers in the older posts on the forums (from 2007-ish) is that they were not using the correct pigment based inks and also not re-pressing for 60 seconds after the initial pressing to make the inks colour fast.

I hope that helps some of you guys who are looking into using this paper.

Unless you use a color laser printer, then you could use Image Clip papers, in one step, not requiring 2nd step mask image like you need if you're using ink jet printers...

I don't think there are any.

like you, I don't like the "laser copy mask" requirement of the 2 step process, because I don't think it's possible to completely align the mask to the image transfer when printing fine line cartoons or illustrations.

There were some papers from China, sold from the Philippines back in 2007 or so, and they still have their videos on YouTube, but I don't see the eBay listings for them now. Plus, only the people directly involved in selling the paper ever seemed to have any consistent success with it...everyone else seemed to have had problems.

The only other option I see is to farm out the printing to a DTG place that can do lights and darks...there's usually no minimum...and if you can find a local place you can drop off and pick up to save on shipping. But you have to trust that they are legit enough not to use the artwork files and sell your designs behind your back.
