just learned it this morning also. put out samples already for my week old business and just learned it today to re press the image after removing the paper. makes a lot of difference.

First press with teflon cover, peel warm and second press with parchment paper. Great feel and long lasting with very little fading even after many washes and drying on hot.

Be careful using Teflon sheet. The polymer is not suppose to stick to Teflon but sometimes it does. Especially when the sheet is slight worn. You will wind up with ghosting that will transfer to another shirt if it is not wiped clean before reusing it. I use parchment paper. Buy it from grocery store. It is cheap, disposable and prevent ruining shirts because of ghosting. When you see trace of the image on the parchment toss it.

I had the same feel with my first press, but went away after the first wash.....You might try a wash test....then you will have a sample to show your customers what they feel like after they get them home and wash them for the first time....My customers understand....

I have used Jetpro Softstrech as well but, i set the press to 375 and press for only 15 seconds. Maybe you are pressing to long. I have never had a JPSS transfer feel like sandpaper.

also u dont need teflon or any cover paper. I just press the JPSS sheet and warm peel and strech the shirt a bit right after you peel the paper off.

like someone else said, 90+% of that feel will go away with the first wash and the second wash will get anything left. alot of what you are feeling is the polymer. just wash the shirt that is your sample to show everyone. you will be amazed at how soft it will get after 1 or 2 washes. been thru a bunch of different trsnfer papers and JPSS is by far and away the best i've used. wish i could find a dark transfer paper this good.:(

I had the same problom at first, you just need more pressure, and press it a 2nd time after the paper is removed.. Have you had probloms with it yellowing?

ok try keeping your heat at about 375, and VERY heavy pressure, try that for about 22 seconds.... I had some yellowing that I thought was kinda burned but I sprayed it with shout and it came out in the wash....I hope this helps you
