Tell me more about CLC. Is it true it does not leave transfer residue like a hot peel. Lou
I did some plastisol hot split on 100%cotton tote bags tonight and had a problem. The instructions were 15 seconds but I had to reduce that to 12 and the 375 degrees lightly scorched my bags..UGH!!! Any ideas. Lou, again
Hi Lou, you mean CLC opaques ? no residue at all. But I will pull out my magnify Lens tomorow during day time and have a closer look. I use Xerox paper and some other name opaque material.

As for your plastisol.... Don't know what to tell about that, the Plastisol hot splits I use apply quick, 6-8 sec. max. It may be the inks or something ???

I'd be interested to know about this product also. Are CLC transfers similar to Plastisols in terms having another party fabricate the transfers with an image or is it something you print up yourself?
CLC (color lazer copy ) transfers) you can make yourself. Our days you can lease a Xerox High End color lazer copy machine and it does not cost too much. Depends on your budget. You can also use these copy machines to output all types of other paper media/full color graphics at high resolution etc.. (multi-purpose).

They are fast too, so if you get a large order you can load up 100 11x17 sheets and they just keep on printing.....

As for quality, never any major complaints. Ideal for full color graphics when plastisol or 4-clr-process is not an option.

Plastisol are better in my opinion when done right. But not all plastisol transfers are good quality.

Hey Lucy,

So if you had choice between CLC and inkjet transfers which would you choose?
forget about cost involved ...jsut finished product on T's

thanks
I've always had good results from CLC. For Lights Or Darks.

There is also a NEw paper entering the market (for CLC or Lazer Printers) where no trimming is required etc.. i will be testing it out soon: http://www.t-shirtforums.com/showthread.php?t=6315&highlight=duracotton
