StarCraft Transfers for Light Materials 8.5" x 11" Sheet

ts make it easy to create your own printed image for application to light colored materials ranging from white to about lighter pastel colors. The unique polymer StarCraft uses actually transfers the inkjet printed image to the garment. A heat press is highly recommended for applying this product due to temperature and pressure requirements. When applying to colored garments you may see the polymer where no ink is printed around the image--this will fade and soften after the garment is washed once or twice.

Application and Care Instructions

  • Press at 375 Degrees for 30 Seconds under HIGH pressure
  • Peel HOT, all in one motion, do not stop in the middle of peeling or it may show a line in your finished design.
  • To wash, turn garment inside out, wash in cold water. Do not bleach. Tumble dry low heat (hang dry recommended).
  • If ironing, do NOT iron directly on the applied image.

 Dark Fabric Material

 

Application and Care Instructions

  • Press at 350 Degrees for 30 Seconds under MEDIUM pressure
  • Peel when entirely COOL to the touch
  • To wash, turn garment inside out, wash in cold water.  Do not bleach.
  • Tumble dry low heat (hang dry recommended).
  • If ironing, do NOT iron directly on the applied image.
  • Heat Transfer Mask is recommended.  Larger, one-piece transfers can be applied without transfer mask.

 

 Supplies Before You Start:

  • INKJET Printer (this won’t work with a laser printer)
  • Printing Substrate (i.e. T-Shirt, Canvas, etc.)
  • Iron or Heat Press
  • Hard, Flat surface
  • Parchment Paper

 Printing

  1. Set the paper type on your printer to “Normal Paper”
  2. Set the resolution to normal
  3. Feed single sheets into your printer. This paper CANNOT be multi-fed.
  4. DO NOT MIRROR your image!
  5. Print the image.
  6. Allow to dry for about 5 minutes before transferring.

 Preparation

  • Make sure to trim ALL excess white areas from around and within your image (an electronic cutting machine like the Cameo and Cricut will make this part a breeze!)
  • Prepare a FLAT, solid surface on which to iron…a countertop or sturdy table is great!
  • Turn your iron/press on and allow your iron to heat up to full temperature for 4 minutes. *Make sure you have the steam setting turned off

*REMEMBER – You will get the EXACT image on your shirt as you have on the vinyl, including the white background in between lettering and any white edges around your design!

    Washing

    • Wait 24 hours before washing
    • Wash in a washing machine using the FULL SPIN CYCLE
    • NOT SUITABLE FOR HAND WASHING or DELICATE CYCLE
    • Hang dry 

    Trouble Shooting

    • Some of the image didn’t transfer. – Heat of the iron wasn’t high enough. Ensure the iron is on FULL temperature and that all of the areas of the image are ironed
    • The image has not transferred at all and comes off of the fabric – Check that you have peeled off the backing paper that has the gird on it.
    • The image has disappeared and there is only the white background visible. – You have placed the image face down on the garment. The image should be facing you and covered with parchment paper before ironing/pressing.
    • Image Bleeding when Printing – Ensure that you have selected “Normal Paper” mode and the print quality is set to “Normal” or “Best”. If you still have bleeding, reduce ink saturation by 10-15%.

    Printing and Application Instructions

    1.  Print image right-facing (do not mirror) using print-and-cut with your die-cutting machine software. Print on the plain white side (not the side with the logo watermark).
    2.  Use your die-cutting software and machine to cut around image.
    3.  Peel and stick image to surface.  For best results, surface should be clean, dry, and smooth (non-porous).  Do not use window or other ammonia-based cleaners.  Isopropyl alcohol is recommended for cleaning surfaces prior to application.
    4.  Use of transfer tape may damage printed image and is not recommended.  Testing is recommended before using transfer tape.  If you are using our UV Laminate to protect the image, transfer tape will not likely work or be difficult to use because the UV Laminate is specially formulated to repel adhesives, dirt, grime, and other contaminates.

    Care Instructions

    1.  Do not use in dishwasher or microwave.
    2.  Inkjet printed vinyl can be more prone to damage if handled or exposed to harsh elements.  For best protection, apply StarCraft UV laminate prior to cutting with your die-cutting machine and software.  You may also use a third-party UV acrylic spray to protect your image (StarCraft only offers laminate options).
    3.  We recommend feeding one sheet at a time when printing. Do not load with other media types.  Some printers may have difficulty feeding thicker substrates such as printable vinyl, especially flat tray fed printers.
