FOREVER Laser Dark (No Cut) Low Temp Heat Transfer Paper

SKU
LDAFFB-G

A revolutionary self-weeding heat transfer paper, FOREVER Laser Dark allows for the application of intricate, full-color images to low-temperature substrates. FOREVER Laser Dark features a unique two-step system of "A" and "B" papers that leaves no background coating and eliminates the need for cutting and weeding

How It Works:

FOREVER Laser Dark includes a semi-transparent A-Foil application page and an opaque B-Paper. First, print on the transparent A-Foil and then press together with the B-Paper. The B-Paper transfers a white adhesive base to only the printed toner on the A-Foil, down to the fine details. The two are then separated, and the A-Foil transfer page is pressed to the garment. The result is a highly detailed, durable transfer with no background.

Features:

  • Self-weeding, low-temperature laser heat transfer paper
  • Low processing temperature (300°F/150°C)
  • Easy two-step (A & B) application minimizes errors and allows user flexibility
  • Semi-transparent A-Foil sheet allows for easy alignment
  • Unique top-coating provides incredible wash resistance
  • High processing tolerance, especially when separating A & B papers
  • Use with the TransferRIP software to achieve prints with an added level of softness, flexibility and durability

Specifications:

  • For best results, we recommend printing with an OKI white toner laser printer. This paper is guaranteed to work with our OKI laser printers, but it will also work with many standard CMYK printers. For compatibility questions, please contact our tech support at 1-800-562-7760, option #3.

  • Must be applied by heat press application only - cannot be applied with conventional home iron. For best results, professional equipment in good condition is recommended
  • Typical shelf life of one-year with proper storage (cool, dark, sealed location)

  • *Not recommended for use with regular CMYK printer due to low density of toner
  • Print design on the matte side of the A foil (transparent) paper in REVERSE or in other words, flip it horizontally. This can be done within the design program or printer’s settings (see your printer manual for more information)
  • The paper should be fed into copier/printer with the short dimension first, ideally using a straight path bypass tray

Step 1

  • Prepare heat press to 300°F
  • Place the printed A foil sheet (transparent paper) with the printed image face up in the heat press
  • Place the Transfer sheet (light yellow logo on back) with the blank side face down on the A foil sheet so that the two sheets are facing each other
  • Press the two sheets for 90 seconds 120 seconds for full-color designs with medium pressure
  • You may decrease time to 90 seconds if your design is all black
  • Once press time has elapsed, peel sheets immediately while hot
  • Your image should be completely covered on A foil sheet with a thin, white layer of adhesive
