PS Stretch is thin, elastic, soft to the hand and blends well into the textiles, and has great stretch and rebound properties.

Here is an application video that our friends at Siser North America have created. Don't worry that it uses the terminology "easy weed", this is the North American name for P.S. Enjoy the video.

What's the point of P.S. Stretch? Why wouldn't I just use normal P.S. Film?
P.S. Stretch is designed to stretch on fabrics such as lycra and spandex, if you were to use our normal P.S. Film, over time it would slowly come off the garment. Have a look at our video to see how much it stretches!
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 YouTube clip for the best way to apply using an iron.
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 app tape to apply the film?
No, you do not need app tape, just cut the film in reverse using a vinyl cutter and then use it's own backing to apply.
Can I multi-layer the films?
Yes, you can, but if it's going on lycra/spandex then you can only use P.S. Stretch when multi-layering.
What are the care instructions?
Please wait 24 hours before the first wash, then you can wash up to 60 degrees. Unfortunately the product can not be dry cleaned. Once the garment is dry, there is no need to turn the garment inside out when ironing as you can iron directly over the film.
Can I apply P.S. Stretch to just normal cottons or polyesters?
Yes, you can, however, you lose the advantage of washing up to 80 degrees compared to using our standard P.S. Film.
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? 160 degrees is required for P.S. Stretch.
2) Do you have the correct time? 20 seconds is required for P.S. Stretch. 
3) Do you have the correct pressure? A light to medium pressure is required for P.S. Stretch. 
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 affects 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 polyester? If applying to either of these fabrics, the coating can effect the transfer adhering to the garment.
