What are heat transfer papers?

Heat transfer papers are made of polymer or coated with wax and pigment that are used to create iron-on projects. You can transfer designs and images to any fabric like t-shirts, bags, pillowcases, towels, socks, and other garments.

When using heat transfer paper, you need a reliable inkjet printer and a heat press machine or mini iron.

Heat transfer paper contains a polymer film that leaves a permanent transfer when printed on. The heat transfer paper is then pressed onto the fabric until they bond completely.

Many crafters prefer using heat transfer papers because it doesn’t require so much equipment and sticks well to any fabric. All you need are inkjet printers, scissors or a cutting machine, and a heat press or iron. This is also an inexpensive way of creating DIY items that can serve as a business inspiration.

This pack of heat transfer paper is used when you are working on white fabrics or light-colored T-shirts. It is important that you take into consideration the color of the shirt or the fabric that you are applying light heat transfer paper to achieve the best color quality.

If you use light heat transfer paper on dark fabrics, you may not like the end result which is an invisible or opaque design or image. Always mirror your design before you start printing on light heat transfer paper.

Dark heat transfer paper is best used on colored fabrics. Though, you can use dark transfer paper on light-colored fabrics. Similar to the sample image above, dark transfer paper was used instead of light transfer paper.

If you are tempted to use dark heat transfer paper for all your transfers, it is possible. However, you may want to think twice because dark transfer paper is more expensive than light transfer paper.

A piece of practical advice would be to use light transfer paper for light-colored fabrics and dark transfer paper for colored fabrics. The best thing about dark transfer paper is that you don’t need to mirror the picture before printing.

TeckWrap Craft’s inkjet heat transfer paper is perfect to adorn any item that is made of fabric. A set of inkjet heat transfer paper contains 15 pcs of A4 transfer sheets, 2 parchment papers, and an instruction sheet.

Heat transfer paper comes in two kinds - light fabrics (light heat transfer paper) and dark fabrics (dark heat transfer paper). Each transfer sheet is thin and durable that can produce vibrant and long-lasting colors. If you want a more detailed read on how to print with both light and dark heat transfer paper, you may click this link.

It is highly recommended that you use inkjet ink for all transfers. For outline images, you may use wax crayons, colored pencils, or markers.

How to Use Heat Transfer Paper

When you open a pack of TeckWrap Craft’s inkjet heat transfer paper, each sheet has a printable side (white side) and the grid side (back side). When printing your desired image on the transfer paper, always print on the white side. Inkjet printers are best used for printing.

If you have been using heat transfer vinyl for some time now, you are most likely comfortable using computer design software, a vinyl cutting machine, and a heat press machine. The process is quite similar when you are planning to make transfers using heat transfer paper.

The first step is to make your design using a design program that you find comfortable to use. Once you are done making your design, you can now begin the printing process. For light heat transfer paper, always mirror the image before printing on the white side. Mirroring is not necessary for dark heat transfer paper.

Next, grab a pair of scissors and cut out your design. Alternatively, you can use a Cricut cutting machine to cut out the image for you. If this is your first time to cut lines and you are not confident doing it, you may want to practice first with a copy paper.

After cutting your desired design, position the image face down (for light transfer paper) or the image facing up (for dark transfer paper) on your fabric or garment of choice. Don’t forget to cover the image with parchment paper before pressing to protect it.

If you are using a heat press, TeckWrap Craft recommends a temperature of 185°C to make light heat transfer paper adhere to fabric for 15 seconds. While for dark heat transfer paper, the recommended temperature is 165°C for 25 seconds.  

Find out more details about the ideal press settings for your transfer paper and other important details about using a heat press. With the help of TeckWrap Craft, you don’t have to do any guesswork to determine how much pressure you need to apply to the transfer paper and for how long.

If you have a heat press machine at home, it is best to use it instead of an iron. A heat press machine can apply pressure to the image evenly and perfectly for a large volume of transfers. While using an iron may cause paper scorching or image burning if not done properly.

Using an iron is more time-consuming and prone to errors. However, if you are a beginner, iron is a more affordable choice than a heat press. An iron is convenient if you are making low volumes of DIY projects.

Once you are done pressing, remove the parchment paper. Hot peeling the transfer paper within 5 seconds is recommended for light transfer paper. However, for dark transfer paper, either cold peel or hot peel is possible.

Care Instructions for Fabrics With Heat Transfer Paper

You should avoid wringing the item. Avoid placing the item directly under the heat of the sun. Lastly, do not iron directly on the transfer image.

Great product but...

The packaging was bent so there were creases in the middle of all the sheets of printable iron-on. It works great, just wish they hadn't been damaged in the shipping process
