    Hi,

    When I print red objects (100% magenta, 100% yellow) onto black shirts the transfer which was red before pressing turns a dark orange colour. I had the white spot fillup spot at 300% heat press at 155 degrees C, medium pressure for 30 seconds. I don’t want to waste lots of time and paper experimenting so any guidance where to start would be very welcome.

    Regards

    Dear daveaturner,

    red is in different branches which are working with heat a very difficult color.For the best result I would recommend to decrease the pressure and the time. 15 seconds should be enough. a light pressure should be also fine. this will lead for sure to a better red.
    Additionally to that you can also decrease the temperature to 120°C.

    Best Regards

    Hi ,
    Many thanks for your advice. Does this advice apply to both applying the transfer and fixing it?

    Dear daveaturner,

    yes. Both steps should be done like this.
