Before You Buy
Due to the toner used in HP and Brother laser printers, transfers have less durability and than transfers from other printers. High heat printers may jam, because a fusing temperature above 350 degrees Fahrenheit causes difficulty in printing onto transfer paper.
As with most transfer papers, many customers experience a trial-and-error period. Don’t get discouraged, if you first attempt isn’t perfect. With practice, you’ll find the settings and pressing process needed to achieve the best results.
- DO NOT mirror the image.
- Copy or print on the coated, un-printed side of the transfer.
- Feed into the copier or printer with the short dimension first (grain long) using the by-pass tray.
- Trim away the un-printed areas of the transfer if desired.
- Slowly peel the paper backing from the transfer film, starting with a small tear in the corner to make separating easier.
Tips for printer jamming
If the paper is jamming in your printer, try the following steps.
- Run the paper on a heavy mode such as “transparency” or “label” to slow down the paper, and allow more time for the toner to adhere completely.
- Use a bypass tray, if possible.
- Feed the transfer paper into the printer in portrait orientation (shorter side first).
If none of these tips work, your printer may be too hot to run heat transfer paper.
