hi im new to heat press and im doin this for about a month and frankly im really disappointed with the results.. ived experimented on 2 dozen or less tshirts (no brand name and cheap) but still aint got the result i want.. the problem is that when i heat press the transfer paper (tried using 180, 150 and 130 heat dunno if its Celsius) with various length of time (15s - 30s for 180, 120s for 150 and 320 for 130 heat respectively) but still i got disappointing results. i just want the transfer paper to transfer the material "perfectly".. i mean the edge seems to go off or doesnt stick that much on the tshirt or textile tried using a variety of cotton textile too).. the stated settings of my heat press machine are the ones who didnt burn the shirt away or the material (i experience burning them both) and when i go far than those settings the material left on the shirt seems "over cooked" perfectly fitted and pressed but the image is distorted or its like burnt on some areas... im using frequency light transfer paper (made in china i think) and the heat press machine im using is the china made 15x15 heat press i saw somewhere in the forums... i got no problem with inks at all im just disappointed with my results when i transfer them to the shirt.. any help would be appreciated.. thank you for reading...im from the Philippines btw

sir cedriz..about dun sa problem mu..im using same type of transfer paper dn which is china...mgnda nman ang outcome..sakto yung print nya ang nde xa nabuburn..i think the problem is your temperature..when you are using cotton shirt with china transfer paper..the temperature must be in 165-170 degree celsius and the time cost is 10-15 seconds lng..kpag nag over yung temp tsaka time your canvass will be burn and the design will fade..mxado po kcng mtaas yung temp mu and mtgal yung time elapsed mu...always remember that you should know your machine well...nsa owner yun..paganahin n lng ntin pgkapinoy ntin..diskarte ba kabayan...^^

I tried china transfer papers recently and wala naman akong problem masyado. I just dont know kung anong kalalabasan nung mga prints sa shirt after ma-wash. Am still waiting for feedback...

Napansin ko lang na medyo matigas at glossy yung outcome nung pagtransfer compared to JPSS... medyo tight kasi yung budget kaya kumapit na ako sa china paper....

Mga sir patanong naman po, I'm new here and in tshirt printing I'm using jpss heat transfer paper. My problem is my prints are a bit stiff and cracking. Im expecting a softstretch output just like what the paper says. My heatpress setting is @ 190C 30 seconds. Am I overcooking it? TIA
