What's the point of Colorprint Crystal Gloss PU? Why wouldn't I just use Colorprint PU?

Colorprint Crystal Gloss PU is a clear film which requires you to mirror print on the adhesive side and use it's own backing when applying. Due to it being a clear, it can only be used on white or light coloured garments due to the nature of transparent inks.

Can I back the print up with white first before printing the image so I can apply it to darker coloured garments?

Unfortunately you can't print a layer of white first before printing the image. 

Can I use an iron to apply the film?

We always recommend using a good, solid, reliable heat press. However if you don't have access to one, then please have a look at this You Tube clip for the best way to apply using an iron.

Do I need app tape to apply the film?

No, you don't need app tape! As it's a clear film all you need to do is mirror print on the adhesive side and use it's own backing to apply.

What blade should I use when cutting this film?

A standard blade will be fine. However for best results, we always recommend the 5025 blade over the 1005 blade.

Do I need to out gas the product before applying the transfer to the garment?

It's best to let it out gas for around 12 hours.

Is the film available in matt?

Yes it is.

Can I multi-layer the films?

Yes you can.

What are the care instructions?

Please wait 24 hours before the first wash, then you can wash up to 60 degrees (inside out). Unfortunately the product can not be dry cleaned. For best results, always wash inside out.

Can I apply Colorprint Crystal Gloss PU to nylon or stretchy fabrics?

Unfortunately you can't apply it to nylon.

If the transfer won't adhere to the garment after you've heat pressed it then please check the following;

1) Do you have the correct heat? 165 degrees is required for Colorprint Crystal Gloss PU.
2) Do you have the correct time? 20 seconds is required for Colorprint Crystal Gloss PU.
3) Do you have the correct pressure? A light to medium pressure is required for Colorprint Crystal Gloss PU.
4) Do you have a reliable heat press? Some heat presses give off an inconsistent heat which can effect the transfer adhering properly.
5) Have you checked for seams, collars or buttons getting in the way? If these things are in the way, then this effects the pressure which in turn effects the transfer adhering correctly. It could be a good idea to invest in some heat transfer pillows as this will help to avoid these things.
6) Are you applying the transfer to a nylon or coated polyestor? If applying to either of these fabrics, the coating can effect the transfer adhering to the garment.
