Printer Setting

Now you can run your print with the White Toner. This will nicely back up the image with white so that it can be transferred to a dark textile. For details on how to create your files check this tutorial!

Open your design in your preferred software and print in mirror image mode.

Heat press settings

You can use your regular clam heat press for this kind of transfer. Preheat the press to 160°C and make sure the lower plate is also hot. You can do so by closing the press for two minutes.

Now you are ready to marry the printed A-Foil with the B-Paper.

 A-Foil & B-Paper 

Put the A-Foil on the lowver plate with the printed side facing up. Cover it with tha B-Paper. The side with the yellow lines must be visible. Cover everything with 5-8 sheets of A3 copy paper.
Now you can press it for 120 Seconds at a medium pressure.

After pressing peel the B-Paper off while still on the hot press.
