Now that I have my printing and color problems solved, I have a new problem. I am pressing mouse pads with a DK20S. The problem is the paper and mouse pad come with the platen when I lift it up.

Am I using too much pressure? Is there something else? Is this normal? It drops off after a few seconds but my first few ended up on the floor.

Also, These puppies are hot! Should I wear some type of gloves when dealing with them? I have tender skin :rolleyes:

You could ease up on the pressure and use a teflon sheet or silicon sheet as a barrier between the transfer and the platen.:D
Thanks for the info. I am experimenting with the pressure since. I will try it. As far as the teflon sheet, should I use one that is close to the size of the mouse pad or just press 4 mouse pads at a time. I have a 16x20 press.

When you raise the press do it slowly. Don't let it pop up. Your getting suction. Place a piece of parchment paper that covers the mouse pad and transfer. I was doing puzzles and got the same thing.

Thanks all, it is working good now after 2 mis-press for mis-alignment. Got the hang of it without moving the paper when covering it.
