DESCRIPTION

  • B → A system: Laser-Dark Low Temp B transfer paper and Forever Flex-Soft A-Foil
  • B-Paper acts as an adhesive so that the Flex-Soft A-Foil can adhere to the material. You will find it in Related Products
  • 2-step application: transfer the B-Paper to the printed A-Foil and fix them on the substrate
  • You will only need a laser printer and a heat press
  • No special toner required
  • Prints detailed designs in one colour
  • Can be applied on most textiles and some rigid materials: cotton, polyester, blends, denim, paper, cardboard and more
  • Made in Germany by Forever

 

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • If your heat press comes with a Teflon sheet, you should remove it since it absorbs too much heat and lead to faulty results
  • The silicone pad must be faultless and properly glued to the lower plate so it does not move
  • Avoid any garment with a background or texture
  • Metallic colours are not compatible with the OKI ES7411WT/C711WT printer
  • If the temperature of the press is too low it will be difficult to separate the No-Cut B-Paper from the Flex-Soft foil. If the temperature is too high, the Flex-Soft foil will wrinkle
  • The temperature and time values are approximate and may vary depending on the transfer press. We recommend testing beforehand
