        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.
