Yes, but what if you're cutting letters. You don't want to separate them from the backing one by one. What would you do then? You need to lift them in one fell swoop and apply them all at once.T-BOT said:the opaque paper im using, you peel the paper backing off the opaque.
Then you're left with an opaque transfer that is sticky on the backside, this makes it easy to position. You can even hold up the shirt to see if the placement is good.
oh, I see, letter eh!Clinton said:Yes, but what if you're cutting letters. You don't want to separate them from the backing one by one. What would you do then? You need to lift them in one fell swoop and apply them all at once.
It would seem you'd need some kind of tape to lift the material after weeding.
I do plan to cut the designs myself. I wish I could show you what I mean. What I'm trying to say is that I can't figure out how to peel all the letters AT ONCE. If I take them out one at a time, I'll have to align them manually, which will probably not turn out nicely. I'm thinking I might need some tape to lift all the pieces at once, then lay it on the shirt.T-BOT said:oh, I see, letter eh!
for letters i never use jet or clc transfers.
i make plotter cut transfers with all the words pre-spaced and ready to apply. Mind you you can still peel of the letters, cover them with teflon sheet and then apply/press.
you know, its not expensive to order them like i described (deco transfers), and they are really good quality.
Or if you have a cutter, heck! why not cut the deco material letters yourself, just buy the material rolls.
Exactly, it needs to work something like the vinyl guys do it.T-BOT said:sorry, it just sounds like a lot of work to print entire words etc.
i guess you can spray temporary clear adhesive on the sheet, then use a clear carrier type material, push it down, then lift it up. But seriously i do not know how well this would work.
you can try it.
there maybe some type of tape like what the sign guys use to lift window sign lettering on the market. I just dont use such...at all.
