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
