Thumbs up Decorating Stretchable Fabrics With A Heat Press - Spandex Compression Wear

This video series of two videos shows you one way to decorate stretchable fabrics such as lycra and spandex. The particular garment used in the demo is a track singlet and the equipment used is a heat press and a Roland Versacamm. For folks who do not own this printer consider contracting out for your prints to a company like Transfer Express or you can find a local company that own a solvent printer (probably a sign shop) and take the roll of material to them to print and cut.

Please post any comments and questions.

Awesome video, very informative. Thanks!
What kind of material was used in the Versacamm? What makes it stretch with the garment? (I watched the video 3 or 4 times and didn't hear it mentioned)

Josh...

You are saying to press for 5 seconds but you are actually doing it for only 3 seconds. Your press in the video is set to 3 seconds.

Which one is right?

5 seconds is accurate. It is actually set to 5 seconds in the video - it just beeps for the final 2 seconds and another beep when it releases.

I see on stahls website a tech sheet document, that for some reason I can't link to. It's a PDF document, and it mentions "Cadcolor-Stretch Print".

But ... on their "products" page, this product is not listed as something you can buy. Very strange.

Hopefully this recent activity will get Josh's attention. His original post of the video is over a year old.

Sorry for the late response - the material in the video is the CAD COLOR Solutions Opaque.
