Heat press paper urgently required !!

2288 Views 10 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  dmob

Could anyone here (preferrably in the UK) tell me where i can urgently get a hold of the paper which you normally receive with transfer paper.

I need it for puting ontop of my dark transfers for cold peel. I have tried using grease proof paper, but that pulls the design off the t-shirt.

I need this paper URGENTLY. I have money waiting for payment right away if someone would even like to sell me some.

Many Thanks

Do you have any sign vinyl...you can use the backing paper.
Hi David, no i dont have any of that. That would have been ideal aswell. Any1 any other ideas please??? :confused:
Hi Jon, do you mean the silicon sheets?

Hi Lee,

I am unsure ??

Do you think these would work :

50 X- LARGE GREASEPROOF PAPER BAKING SHEETS 18" X 28" on eBay, also Baking Trays, Cookware, Kitchen, Home Garden (end time 12-Nov-08 14:44:46 GMT)

Its to put over the top of my dark transfers for cold peel without lifting the whole design off the shirt ??!!

I use a teflon sheet. One place to find them is at Vinyl Cutters, Heat Presses & Accessories, Heat Transfer Vinyl & Screen Printing Machines - Imprintables Warehouse

With that in mind, I have a few hundred 8.5 X 11 sheets of the kraft paper that comes with most opaque transfer paper that you're looking for. Since I use the teflon sheet, I've been saving all of that kraft paper for 2 years. I live in the U.S. though. Message me if interested.
I thought you tried greaseproof paper, I don't think it will work.

You need a teflon sheet or the silicon ones (the same as the sheets you get in a box of transfer paper) for best results.
How about craft paper from your local hobby store?
Hi folks, i managed to find a temporary alternative until such times as i get some new silicone paper.

Using the backing sheet on which paper sticky labels are adhered to. I tore off all the sticky labels and the surround and this has a shiney non stick coating. Great for using ontop of dark transfers, and it also allowed me to peel off when hot, instead of waiting around until it cools.

A good little find i reckon !!

Cheers anyways for all the help !!
Hi nelly
You are probably sorted by now, but, if you have got a branch of Wilkinsons near you they do Baking Parchment 375mm x 5metres for 65 pence.
It is good stuff and works like a charm.
