Important Storage Information to Prevent Humidity Related Issues
The transfer papers need to be stored and sealed in the provided zip-lock bag when not in use to protect them against excess humidity. If the paper absorbs too much humidity from the air, its ability to absorb water-based inks is lessened which can result in ink bleed, splotchy transfers, and adhesion issues. Neenah Paper recommends that the work area be maintained at 45-55% relative humidity for optimal results. If humidity levels in your area are very high or you won't be using up the transfer paper pack within a week or two, we would also recommend that you purchase some silica gel desiccant packs to put inside the zip lock bag along with the paper.
Another tip to counter the humidity issue is to perform a 10-15 second repress with a parchment paper to cure the ink. This should be performed after the initial press has been allowed to completely cool. Lastly, allow at least 48 hours before the first wash cycle.
We cannot guarantee the quality of transfer papers that have not been stored properly in humid conditions.
Note: Because of the wide variety of fabrics and garment manufacturers that exist, we highly recommend that this product be fully tested prior to going into production.
