More information about the Brildor freezer paper

  • Although it was created to freeze food, it has many more applications, whether in the personalisation field, textile manufacture or craft world.
  • Simple and inexpensive solution for making stencils and masks.
  • White paper with a thermo-adhesive glossy side and a matte side on which you can draw with a pencil or felt-tip pen.
  • It can be applied on any surface, either fabric or rigid objects made of wood, glass, metal or ceramic.
  • Once adhered, it comes off easily, leaving no residue.
  • Reusable. Can be cleaned after use.

APPLICATIONS

  • Ideal for customising using stencils (stencil technique) and masks (masking tape technique). Its characteristics and low cost make it a good substitute for the self-adhesive vinyl commonly used for these purposes.
  • Can be used as an adhesive base for foil designs and as a transfer paper for rigid surfaces. Does not absorb ink, remaining on its surface when printed. For this reason, its use as transfer paper requires a lot of care and expertise.
  • Widely employed in textile manufacturing and handicrafts because it stabilises fabrics when adhered to them. It gives them body, controls their natural mobility and prevents wrinkles and creases from forming. This makes it possible to feed fabrics into plotters and printers for cutting and printing.
  • Good interlining substitute for clothing and other textile items such as bags, hats, cushions and more.
  • It facilitates the cutting of pre-determined fabric shapes by ensuring that the cut pieces always have the same form. This helps in making garment patterns and is also very useful for quilting, patching or appliqué.

HOW TO CUT FREEZER PAPER WITH A VINYL CUTTER?

  • Place the paper on the cutting mat. The shiny side of the paper should be in direct contact with it.
  • Cut the design using the same copy paper settings, increasing the force slightly.
  • If you are using a Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter ,the recommended settings are: blade 2, speed 4 and force 16. It is recommended to use the "thick paper" mode on other cutting machines.
  • Once you have cut the design with the vinyl cutter, discard it.

HOW TO PRINT FABRICS USING FREEZER PAPER?

  • Choose the design to be printed. An inkjet printer is recommended.
  • Cut the fabric to the right size so that it can be fed into the printer. The maximum recommended size is the same as a freezer paper sheet.
  • Make sure the edges of the fabric are not frayed. This could jam the printer and damage it.
  • Place the glossy side on the back of the fabric.
  • Use an iron to apply heat to activate the adhesive on the paper until it is completely stuck to the fabric. Be careful with the temperature of the iron. Avoid burning the fabric. For best results, it is recommended to iron on a flat and smooth surface.
  • Check the fabric carefully. It should have no threads, and the paper has to be the same size as the fabric. Trim if necessary.
  • Load the fabric in the printer tray, making sure the fabric to be printed is on the right side.
  • Print it out.

How to make stencils and masks with freezer paper?

TECHNIQUE: STENCIL

  • This technique is based on the use of stencils to transfer designs onto T-shirts, walls, bags and much more.
  • The stencil in the shape of the design you create can be used as a pattern, to draw or paint on an object.
  • A simple cut-out example you can paint with is a heart. In this case, the stencil will consist of freezer paper with a heart-shaped hole.
  • They are reusable, so you can personalise several objects with a single one.
  • If the chosen design is complex, you can combine different stencils during the personalisation process. For example, if the design consists of an image and a quote, you can use 2: one for the image and one for the quote. You can also have stencils for each letter.

How to personalise with freezer paper stencils?

  • Prepare the design you want to transfer.
  • Draw the design on the matte side of the paper. You can do this freehand or by tracing. If you have a digital version, this step is not necessary.
  • Cut the outline of the design using scissors or a cutter. In case of using a digital design, you can cut it out with a vinyl cutting machine to save time and gain precision. Once completed, your freezer paper stencil is ready to use.
  • Keep the right paint and tools at hand. For instance, if you are going to personalise a T-shirt, it is best to use textile paint and use a brush or sponge to apply it.
  • Place the stencil on the object to be personalised. The glossy side of the paper should be in direct contact with the surface of the object.
  • Apply the stencil on the object by applying heat with a domestic iron or a heat press. 
  • To avoid accidents or stain other parts of the object with paint, cover them with paper or masking tape.
  • Get to paint and let it dry for the time indicated by the manufacturer.
  • Remove the stencil by lifting the paper at one end, pulling it firmly until it is completely off. To make this task easier, you can use a hook or tweezers.

TECHNIQUE: MASKING TAPE

  • The masking technique is very similar to the stencil method. It consists of covering one area of the object to be personalised with a mask and painting around it.
  • To differentiate a stencil from a mask, let's imagine the chosen design is a heart. By cutting along the edge, we can distinguish two parts: the heart-shaped part that serves as a mask and the paper with the heart cut out that can be used as a stencil. 
  • They are reusable, so you can personalise several objects with just one mask.
  • If the chosen design is complex, you can combine different masks during the personalisation process. For example, if the design consists of an image and a quote, you can use 2: one for the image and one for the quote. You can also have masks for each letter.

How to personalise with freezer paper masks?

  • Prepare the design you want to transfer.
  • Draw the design on the matte side of the paper. You can do this freehand or by tracing. If you have a digital version, this step is not necessary.
  • Cut the edge of the design with scissors or a cutter and discard the outer area. In case of using a digital design, you can cut it out with a vinyl cutting machine to save time and gain precision. Once completed, your freezer paper mask is ready.
  • Keep the right paint and tools at hand. For instance, if you are going to personalise a T-shirt, it is best to use textile paint and use a brush or sponge to apply it.
  • Lay the mask on the object to be personalised, placing the glossy side of the paper in contact with it.
  • Stick the mask on the object by applying heat with a domestic iron or a heat press. If the object is not heat-resistant, fix the mask using adhesive tape or any other method.
  • To avoid getting paint on the parts of the object that you are not going to personalise, cover them with paper.
  • Get to paint and let it dry for the time indicated by the manufacturer.
  • Remove the mask by lifting the paper at one end, pulling it firmly until it is completely off. To make this task easier, you can use a hook or tweezers.
