  • Large format plotters and Samsung printers tend to be less compatible.
  • Under printer settings, set media type as "label paper" or heavy glossy paper".

Material

Urethane (Standard)

The material is highly elastic, will not turn yellow and has high resistance to heat.
You can also apply in curved surfaces.

Acrylic

  • The decal paper has excellent adhesion and superb printing quality.
  • Use after taking off the baking paper.
  • The paper is not resistant to extreme heat so use with caution when printing with high temperature printers. Run a trial before printing bulk.
  • Acrylic decals are also not as elastic which means it can tear easily.
  • We recommend the Urethane type for Samsung printers.

Washability and other factors

Washability

  • Either use plain water.
  • Leaving the image in hot water for too long could weaken the ink.
  • Do not wash with flammable thinner, rubbing alcohol or acetone, which could dissolve the ink.

 

Storage

  • Store in dry, cool condition, free of moisture. Keep the papers in a reclosable plastic bag.
  • The papers will last up to 1-2 years if kept enclosed in a plastic bag.
  • The quality of the printout might compromise after a month from printing.

 

Additional tips

  • Do not try to scratch right after transfer.
  • The ink will seal and become more durable with time.
  • You might achieve less adhesion on some plastic types.

 

Printing issues related to static electricity

  • If static electricity occurs, the ink might not engage the paper properly and smudge.
  • To prevent this, lay the paper one by one in a humidified space.
  • Dry weather conditions generate static electricity, so humidifiers will help fix the problem.
