APPLICATION TIPS

Pre-Press Shirt

To remove moisture and bring
the shirt to the correct pressing
temperature it is critical that the shirt
is pre-pressed prior to applying the
transfer.

Pressure
TrimFree, as with all transfer papers
for light shirts, requires Maximum
pressure. Using maximum pressure
will ensure the transfer paper will peel
correctly and increase the washability
of the design.

Peeling
It is important to wait 7 to 10 seconds
prior to peeling the transfer. Do not
remove the shirt from the press prior
to peeling, doing so will cause the
transfer to cool too quickly making the
transfer difficult to peel.

When peeling, use a slow and consistent motion.

DO NOT Cover your transfer with Teflon when pressing TrimFree.

Fabric Types – 7 to 10 Second Wait Time
TrimFree will work well on cotton,
cotton blends and polyester. Most
t-shirt fabrics only require a 7 second
wait period prior to peeling, heavier
fabrics such as sweat shirt material
usually require the full 10 seconds.

Because there is such a wide variety
to different fabrics we suggest you
test your material to determine the
best wait time.

 

 

Paper Mode
For the fuser to properly fuse the
toner to the paper we suggest using
Heavy Paper or Label Mode. You
may need to test 2 or 3 different
settings to find the best setting for
your printer. To check for good toner
adhesion, run your finger across the
printed image. If any toner transfers
to your finger you should set your
paper mode setting on your print
driver to a heavier setting.

Loading and Exit Tray
TrimFree should be printed using
the by-pass tray. If your printer has
a rear exit door that will allow the
paper to exit straight out the back we
suggest you test the paper using this
configuration.

Suitable Graphics
TrimFree works best with graphics and
designs that have solid colors such as
corporate logos or plain type.
TrimFree is best suited for logos or
graphics, if you are printing large
square images or photographs we
suggest using CL 135.
