Am I able to get vinyl heat transfer for my Latex 360 for t shirts? If so, what material is recommended?
#1 Hello copyshipresources5169,
Yes, we have certified several brands (like Chemica, Siser and Poli-Tape) and materials and you can find them in the Media Solutions Locator https://www.printos.com/ml/#/medialocator. Please filter by the application "Heat Transfer Material" and you will find them all.
You can also find them through the front panel of the printer, the media preset and the ICC profile will be directly installed to the printer.
#2 Can I find video or step process on doing this. I bought the Siser material but I'd like to know the weeding process etc. I am new to this process. Thank you!
#3 Hello again,
Yes, we have built one video and one cookbook with the step by step process.
Feel free to give us your feedback. Thanks!
#4 Videos are much appreciated. I see a profile for the siser colorprint gloss but I bought the Matte. Any idea if that gloss profile will work for matte?
The glossiness might affect to the color accuracy of the prints (basically, the ICC profile could be improved by creating a new one with an external spectrophotometer), but the rest of the printer settings should work. I would recommend you to try with that one and let me know if the performance is good enough for you and your cusomers. If it's not we can send you another ICC profile for you to test it.
I hope this helps.
I’m looking to print t something that can stretch on a compression T-shirt. Is there a material you recommend for that? I’ve seen a product made by cad-color solutions opaque but it says for solvent printers. I have a latex 335.
Did you check on the Media Solutions Locator https://www.printos.com/ml/#/medialocator.
You need to filter by the application "Heat Transfer Material" and you will find all the available profiles for your printer and application.
I have a HP latex 365 printer and we bought some Chemica hotmark 1792, it has icc profile that we downloaded from hp. It prints great on the HTV but the problem we are having is the HTV is not coming off to the transfer tape. We have used 2 different application tapes that 2 different websites recommended clear 850 and also att 450. Neither of the 2 application tapes peel the transfer completely. Do we need to tweak the heating and curing on the hp printer? Is the HTV getting to hot and sticking to the liner? Please help
My suggestions are:
The curing temperature in the printer is optimized for IQ, and durability, so not recommended to be modified
Application of the transfer tape; we suggest to use a roll laminator. If manually, use a squeegee to improve the adhesion between tape and HTV.
Separate the HTV from its liner by pulling from the liner, at 180º
I hope this information helps
#10 We are having the exact same problem with the Siser Colorprint PU as digitaldesignseldo6633 is having with the Chemica Hotmark (also running a latex HP 365). Running on our standard setting is too hot for the vinyl (vinyl adheres to the backing), but running on the ICC profile for Colorprint PU isn't hot enough to cure the latex ink....therefore, it is too wet to get even the hi-tac transfer tape to stick. I have printed off pages 3 and 4 of the 'Customized Clothing with HP Latex Printers' file, which has the certified materials list of Chemica, Siser and Poly-Tape... can you tell me which of these materials has the highest possible printer dryer temperature? I'm hoping to find a happy medium, obviously, where the ink dries, but the printed vinyl material doesn't adhere to the backing material. Thanks!
If you have changed any print mode settings in your media profile, we recommend you to use the default settings in the Siser Color Print PU media profile available in the Media Locator. These settings are optimized for optimal IQ and durability.
If the default settings do not work, you can tweak them on the printers front panel to adjust them for your application and environment.
In your case, since the ink isn't curing properly, you can try small increments to the curing temperature or increasing the number of passes used.
Hallo everyone, can anyone of you recommend one of these heat presses? And what is better to be used a heat press or a printer?
From these https://www.craftyhangouts.com/best-t-shirt-printing-machine
Were you ever able to find a solution to getting the siser material to come off its backing onto the clear mask for transfer? I am just trying this with the siser colorprint pu and I have tried the easy mask and the high tack that is recommended by the company, but I have 3 that worked out of 17. Thanks in advance.
I am using an Epson stylus c88 for the heat transfer process. I brought this printer after reading an article from" https://trashn2tees.com/best-printers-for-heat-transfers/". There was no issue. But I want to switch to "HP LaserJet Pro M454dw". Can anyone tell if it will be a good decision? Or suggest to me an HP printer that will serve the purpose smoothly.
Thanks in advance.
Hello I was looking at the profiles for the siser htv but it does not have a profile for a hp 570.
has anyone tried the profiles of that machine?
