a bit of cracking after the first wash-Transfer Paper for Inkjet Printing Dark Fabrics


Q:There was a bit of cracking after the first wash. Is there a way to avoid this? Thanks so much. I am using a heatpress.

A:wait 24 hours before washing, 

  • Always turn your garment inside out(let the image inside). This will minimize the amount of abrasion that the transfer will encounter with other garments in the wash.
  •  Wash the garment in cold water using a mild detergent. DO NOT USE BLEACH, wash on delicate cycle.
  • Remove the garment from the wash immediately and allow to air dry. 
  • Do Not put in dryer (dried without heat) .If you are going to tumble dry, use the air setting only. By doing this over the life of the garment, you will be ensuring that your image stays clear and bright.
  • Do not stretch the image as cracking may occur.
  • Do not iron directly on transfer. Cover with parchment
