Hi everyone just wanted to ask as quick question.
I am new to the hole vinyl scene and I am not getting a good result with the vinyl the supplier has given me.. It is made by FDC and called Thermal Advantage . It is 3m thick and it is a hot peel.
I am having a lot or problems with the finished product . After washing this product it seems to wrinkle and the edges seem to start to peel . It Looks great Until the wash and then its a mess. The first design I had was some very small lines and details and thought that maybe that was the problem.. But I tried another test shirt with big bold letters and had the same outcome ..
I am not sure if I am doing something wrong but I have tried to follow the instructions that came with this product and no matter which way I do it the result is the same..
The shirt itself is 100% cotton prewash and dry to try and avoid shrinkage prepressed before applying vinyl. I have tried turning the temp up adjusting the pressure or leaving it on the press for 5 or 10 seconds longer then the spec says also press it again for another 10 seconds after its applied to the shirt and no matter what I do as soon as it comes out of the washer result the same.. I have actually emailed FDC about a week ago as well as the supplier and nothing back from either of them.. But I do not want to give this to people looking the way it does . Not impressed at all with it... I just would really Like to know what I am doing wrong if anything...
Thanks for any info
