  • This vinyl can be printed using 2 different methods: directly with a laser printer or using dye sublimation printing. Also, you can sublimate it either before or after sticking it to the surface of the object.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • Use a squeegee to apply the adhesive to the surface you are personalising and avoid the formation of air bubbles. You will find it in Related Products.
  • If you want to get higher opacity, we recommend using matte white Washaffix vinyl. You will find it in Related Products (Ref. 925976 and Ref. 925983).
  • Avoid using microwaves on glasses, mugs, or plates personalised with Washaffix.
  • If you’re using a Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter, the recommended cutting parameters for this vinyl are the following: blade setting (2), speed (2), force (20) and number of passes (1).

How to personalise and apply Washaffix vinyl?

SUBLIMATION BEFORE APPLICATION: RECOMMENDED INSTRUCTIONS AND PARAMETERS

  • Print the design in mirror image, using sublimation paper.
  • Remove the liner from the Washaffix and stick it to protective paper or any other silicone paper. Use a squeegee to avoid air bubbles or wrinkles. Keep the liner for later.
  • Preheat the press to 190ºC.
  • Place the Washaffix vinyl on the press’ lower platen and the printed design on top of it(*). Cover them with another layer of protective paper.
  • Press for 35 seconds, low pressure.
  • Remove the layer of protective paper from the sublimated Washaffix vinyl and reattach it to its liner.
  • With a dry cloth, clean any ink residue that might remain on the vinyl after pressing.
  • Cut the design with a vinyl cutter if possible.
  • When applying the design, simply remove the liner and stick it to the surface you are personalising.

(*) To guarantee a more uniform pressure, you may place a thin board, or something similar, on the press’ lower platen before placing the vinyl.

 

SUBLIMATION AFTER APPLICATION: RECOMMENDED INSTRUCTIONS AND PARAMETERS

  • Cut and stick the Washaffix vinyl to the object you want to personalise.
  • If necessary, use heat-resistant tape to protect the parts of the item that may get damaged by heat.
  • Print the design in mirror image, using sublimation paper.
  • Preheat the press to 190ºC.
  • Place the item on the press’ lower platen, with the vinyl to be printed facing up.
  • Place the previously printed design on the vinyl.
  • Press for 35 seconds, heavy pressure.
  • Using a protective glove, remove the item with the newly printed vinyl.
  • Remove the paper carefully.

 

LASER PRINTING

  • You can use any laser printer: standard or white toner, with LED technology or flash fusing.
  • Select the paper type in your printer: “Transparency” or the most suitable option according to the thickness and grammage of this vinyl.
  • Place the vinyl in the printer tray.
  • Print the design on the vinyl.
  • Cut the outline of the design using scissors or a vinyl cutter.
  • Remove the excess media, leaving on the liner the design you want to stick to the item.
  • Slightly peel the design off its backing at one end, but enough so that it sticks to the vinyl to begin its application.
  • Gradually place the vinyl on the target surface. Use a squeegee to avoid the formation of air bubbles.
