Here's one for someone with Epson background:
When I use my R800 on blue grid, it is almost impossible to peel the vinyl off the backing sheet. My best luck to date has been to heat the printed paper about 5 seconds at 360 degrees, let it cool, and then peel it. The result has some tendency to stretch but appears to retain the color reasonably accuratelye ven after multiple washings.
Is this a problem caused by the R800 pigment inks?
The ink shouldnt affect how well the transfer paper peels. How are you preheating the transfer? You are actually pre pressing the transfer? Never heard of that before. It is unneccisary. Just make sure all the moisture is out of the shirt, and that you are using a fresh sheet of parchment. When there is alot of moisture in the shirt, the transfer tends to get sticky, and hard to move around, and when you use an old piece of parchment paper, it can be hard to peel, but other than that I havent had any problems.
Actually... what I've been doing is that I have been pressing my shirts with the grid backing on the front of the shirt... instead of using the parchment paper.
One day I ran out of parchment paper and I gave it a try because I was desperate to fill out some orders... anyway
It came out very very glossy and I have been pressing my shirts like that ever since.
Maybe you guys can try it.... BUT! I don't have a professional press like you guys... Like I said in previous posts, I have a singer heat press which might not get as hot and Maybe it'll burn with your press..
its been working good on my end... i'd like to hear from you guys and see what happens w/ u
