Re: problems with 3G Jet-Opaque transfer paper

I know this may be an old thread, FWIW, let me share my experience on CVC (60%/40%) shirt. I used 3G Jetpro dark transfer at 160C for 15s at medium pressure. The shirt on the link has been washed for about 8 times (automatic washing machine) and I have not seen any peeling but a few crackings of the design.


I tested it yesterday on 100% cotton, but I will have yet to see if it will peel or not. I used the same settings.

Also from Philippines here, just started with the printing business Dec 2018.

Re: problems with 3G Jet-Opaque transfer paper

Hello,

The problem I am having is the backing paper sticking to the transfer. After printing and cutting with the Silhouette cameo, it becomes very difficult to peel and it leaves spots of paper sticking to the transfer ruining it.
Any suggestions as to what might be happening?

Thank you!

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



Hi i'm using 3g jet-opaque for about a year now and had no press failure on this brand. Here's how i prep my press..... I pre press my shirt for 15 sec to remove moisture then my press setting is as follows 160c for 20 sec... then let it cool then pre press again for another 15 sec.... it works every time...... hope this helps!

Re: problems with 3G Jet-Opaque transfer paper

Hi. I'm from Philippines and I wanna start my t shirt printing business . So, I bought this 3g jet opaque dark transfer paper. I watched on Youtube that transfer papers can be transferred using an iron instead of a heat press. I tried it on a shirt and the print was transferred but when I hand-washed the t shirt, the print was like crumpled and distorted. What do I need to now when washing my shirts? or should it really be a heat press that I should use???

Re: problems with 3G Jet-Opaque transfer paper

I'm a newbie too, from the Philippines, to all the Filipinos here in the forums, what brand of shirts you used for commercial use of course and what setting of the heat press for 3G opaque for Dark and Jetpro for light transfer. By the way We have the Max RILEY heat press I think. Thank you.

I had this problem, and the reason was I was cutting to deep, cutting into the backing which made it difficult to remove. the cut is very shallow for this material

btw, i might be on a wrong thread but can you guys watch this video (How to start your own t-shirt business - YouTube) & if you notice the transfer paper he used at the black shirt, it's a like a self weeding but the guy on the video did not mention the name or the brand of that paper, did anyone here tried that paper before?

Re: problems with 3G Jet-Opaque transfer paper

Hi! I am planning to make our personalized shirts for me and my girlfriend. We both love to jog so I decided to use a dri-fit shirt. Can I use 3G Opaque for dri-fit material?

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.
5 sec for that moisture thing i think..6 sec for 160 c temp for the main press?ur saying with the transfer paper po..
i washed it inside out using washing machine,i forgot to say that the design i press with 3g is on the back coz there is an design(screen printed i think)on the front with the same size.do you think thats the reason why it fades the two designs,and also it has wrinkles on the faded area..thanks
