I'll make sure to reduce the daily white cleaning amount. Thanks for that. Just read that part in the cookbook as well.

I agree - short term pain, long term gain!
- Try hover the heatpress 1 cm above the print for around 20 seconds. This will set the colour layer and will reduce it sticking to the teflon sheet
- 50% less bright is pretty crazy. Try the hover press option first it should help this too. You should always expect some loss of vibrancy after heat pressing as you are removing moisture from the ink
