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.

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.

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