3G Jet-Opaque ® Heat Transfer Paper
3G Jet-Opaque® Heat Transfer Papers is designed for transferring ink jet images to dark or other colored garments and substrates including T-shirts, sweatshirts, mouse pads, puzzles and leather goods. This product contains an opaque layer to hide the color of the substrate and allow for photo-quality transfers. Choose garments that have a tight weave. This product can be cut with a cutter, plotter, die and kiss-cut.
Using a Commercial Heat Press
- Place the transfer on top of the garment with the image side up covered with a pressing sheet.
- Press 30 seconds at 350 degrees (Fahrenheit)
- Remove the paper when cool
Red and dark colored 50/50 blends, polyester and nylon are not recommended because the dye from the shirt may migrate into the transfer. However, transferring may be possible by lowering the temperature to 300° F and a heat press time of 20 seconds. Please test this process prior to production (See important disclaimer below.)
Turn garment inside out and wash in cold water using a mild detergent. Do not use bleach. Dry on low heat setting. Do not iron directly on the transferred area.
STORAGE AND HANDLING OF JET-OPAQUE ® HEAT TRANSFER PAPERS
Store in a cool, dry area. Do not remove from carton or poly bag until you are ready to use.
IMPORTANT: We test each of our products on various substrates using different transfer equipment. However, it is impossible for us to duplicate all variables using all substrates and transfer equipment. Therefore, you should test the paper prior to production using your equipment, methods, and substrate material. Heat presses vary in accuracy. Conduct tests to determine the best time and temperature to use with your equipment. Please keep in mind that the Seller’s and Manufacturer’s maximum obligation shall be to replace any paper that has proven to be defective. Neither the Seller nor the Manufacturer shall be liable for any injury, direct or consequential, arising out of the use of, or inability to use this paper.
Product does not have optimum wash durability when hand ironed.
