Bad pressing

1128 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  freebird1963
Pressing onto VA Phenoms and its coming out terrible.
385/55secs with dyetrans 11x17 paper with light pressure. Butcher paper on bottom platen over platen teflon cover and paper on top of transfer.

No foam or teflon pillow and no blow through paper.

Not sure what this issue is.
is it pressure ?
the paper. ? Print looks good tho.
Time ?
Heat ?
Or coming from the platen cover ? I have paper over it when I press.

I need help with this. Never had these bad of presses even when I first started and had no clue what I was doing. !!

Looks like there's not enough pressure to me.

You can use this t-shirt now to experiment with different pressure/time combinations.
Is there a lot of ink left on the paper?
If so, does sound like not enough pressure.
Let me know.
Thanks guys. Was a pressure issue. I was tyring to go real light on the pressure and went to light.
