Maybe someone else has experienced this. I will admit, this is my first try using the white paper. I was successful using a color sheet.

So, I have the A and B Forever papers. For A, I am using the white transfer paper, shiny on one side. And the B paper is low temp. white background. Both large sized (tabloid).

I am printing with my OKI 831 laser printer the design which I saved in black. So far, all looks good. Then, I heat pressed together with the B paper (I have a Hotronix Fusion - swing away), followed the Forever instructions which said 310 F for 90 seconds.

Then, I trimmed around the A, pressed onto a light gray sweatshirt. Instructions said 310 F for 5-10 seconds (which I was worried wasn't long enough). I waited until completely cool, then pulled off the sweatshirt. Result was perfect, except it wasn't white, but gray! The photo may not show it well, but it is not white at all in person.

What am I missing? Any suggestions are definitely welcome!

that is a nice press, but the color is not white

interesting, it should be white
did it look like anything was 'left behind' on either sheet?
that may indicate a time/pressure/temp adjustment upwards (i would start with pressure and temp first)
i know these papers are not cheap, so maybe gang six designs per page and separate for testing/adjustments

sorry i can't be much more help, except a bump back to the top

Nope. I transferred recently from Epson inkjet to laser printing.
It's made in Germany and is available world wide. Most merchants in USA carry this product and would have dropped it if it wasn't performing. Following instructions is critical.

If Forever no-cut light has lasting quality equal or greater than cut fashion film, glitter, rhinestone, hologram on T-shirts washed inside out in cold water and dry hung than I am happy.
For a shirt to last a life time one should use sublimation.

How is cracking of the laser transfer when the shirt is stretched?
