Washability and other factors

Washability

  • Either use plain water or a soft sponge to wash.
  • 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.
  • To remove the image, use a cotton bud dabbed with rubbing alcohol.
  • You might achieve less adhesion on some plastic types.
  • To achieve the best durability, we recommend baking again after removing the film.
  • Please note that glass products could break with a drastic rise of temperature.

 

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.
