Heat Transfer Foils TutorialDownload Full PDF Article\n\nThis document lays out the steps and setting used for garment printing using the foil transfer technique. These settings are only suggestions. There are many different foils on the market, different plastisols and many different final applications. Consider purchasing our transfer foils to better replicate our results. ALWAYS PRETEST BEFORE ANY APPLICATION!\n\n\n\n\nSuggested Settings:\n\nScreen Mesh: 60 to 110 Monofilament\n\nHeat Transfer Press Specifications: 350°F, 50-60 lbs. pressure, 10-20 seconds\n\nInk: A fast fusing plastisol with lower re-melt properties is desired. (Multi-Tech MC 107 Flash Base performs wonderfully.)\n\nInstructions\nPrint the desired image on the garment and run it through your conveyor dryer in the normal manner.\nPut the garment on the heat transfer press, image facing up.\nCover the image with conventional heat transfer paper and lower the press for a few seconds. This will create a smooth surface for the foil to adhere to.\nPosition a piece of foil (shiny side up) large enough to cover the image.\nPut a piece of transfer paper on top of the foil. Lower the transfer press head according to the specifications above and release.\nLet the transfer cool completely before peeling!\nPeel slowly and evenly.\nYou can re-press the image without the transfer paper if a matte finish is desired.\n\n*Note: The transfer will last longer if it is laundered inside out and hand washed. Dry at low temperatures. Do not dry clean.
