T-Shirt Transfer papers are called paper because the carrier of the Heat Transfer film / vinyl or coating is paper.

The term "hand" means how soft the transfer feels on the fabric. We believe we have the best on the market!

We do not recommend using this product to cover up another image. As this is not the intended use of the product, we cannot guarantee how the end product would turn out.

To ensure you don't get any cracking in the wash make sure you have followed the transfer recommendation per instruction ( recommended temp, time and firm pressure during transfer) , plus only wash with cold water and let it air dry..

We recommend for best results to wait 24 hours before your first wash but you can start wearing the shirt once your transfer as cooled.

This is a debate regularly in our office. We’ve all agreed to agree it depends on the look you are seeking. The darker khaki color (more brown vs. beige) dark transfer paper will probably work best. For lighter beige you could utilize both dark and light transfer. It depends on the look you are going for. Dark transfer paper has a solid white background and the colors will remain just as you print them. Light transfer paper does not have a white background. Once you transfer to the khaki the color of the fabric will play a role in the final outcome and coloring of your design. We recommend testing a few pieces before applying to your end product.

Make sure you have applied enough heat and pressure when you iron it ensuring you get a great adhesion to your shirt. Also, make sure you wash your shirt inside out and hang to dry.

Our transfer paper can be used with any software from Word, Powerpoint to professional Photoshop / adobe graphic software’s. Some really great design websites are out there as well. In your search engine “Graphic Design Tools for Free” is a good search term!

Regarding the Light T-shirt Transfer to eliminate the max of the transfer film to show up we recommend trimming off all the unprinted area around the design.

No, for the light transfer paper (double red line on the back) you print in mirrored form and put the transfer paper image facing down on the shirt. Then, iron it and only peel after ironing it. Wait 3 seconds and peel when hot (don't burn your fingers).

Materials

Dri fit material is normally made with 100% polyester. We do not recommend Light Transfer Paper on 100% polyester no matter the color.

Yes, we have had good experience with transferring to felt; but you have to make sure you put firm pressure on and don't overheat the felt. We recommend to test with an extra piece of felt what the best temp and time for your felt is. That can vary from felt to felt (depending on thickness and content of fabrics). In addition, with felt you want to peel the backing sheet only once cold, peeling the corners very gently.

We recommend purchasing our wood transfer product.

Yes, this transfer paper works great for transferring on cotton fabrics as well as 50/50 polyblends

We have received feedback from customers who have used our light T-shirt Transfer paper on glass tiles and/or tiles. It needed to be a very nice flat glass surface. Make sure you can apply firm and even pressure (don't slide the iron, just press) and make sure you try peeling hot and/or cold. Some customers reported that depending on the glass, they got better results with peeling it cold. You will have to test on a spare piece for your best result.

Most swimsuits are made out of polyester and aren't very heat resistant, so we would not recommend it.

It depends on how fluffy the felt is, the shorter the felt "hair", the better. Best is to try on a spare piece of felt to make sure you get the result you are looking for. It is important that before you transfer on to the felt that you quickly pre-iron the felt to take any possible moisture out and to improve the adhesion when you iron on the transfer film. Our puzzle kits are a short felt and can be found here.

Yes, this will work with a pre-stretched canvas panel. However, make sure when you are transferring that you have something to fill the void in the back of the canvas because you need to ensure that you have even coverage on the canvas when ironing.

Our light transfer paper works on a variety of great substrates/blanks. Please ensure you always test the heat settings on a sample prior to your application. Check us out on Pinterest to generate new ideas!

  • Tshirts that are 100% cotton or a 50/50 blend (the most common)
  • Lycra
  • Burlap
  • Nylon
  • Canvas
  • Scarves
  • Tote bags
  • Throw Pillows
  • Blankets
  • Art Canvas
  • Towels
  • Table Runners
  • Pillow cases
  • Koozies
  • Vinyl

Yes, we have many customers which are using our NuFun Transfer paper on vinyl, the important part is that you are testing what temp your vinyl can tolerate. Some very thin Vinyl's can't be used for temps of 275 and higher temps. so you will have to test on a sample piece. if you want good adhesion and wash-ability we recommend to use transfer temp of 250 to 325 F depending on your vinyl.

We do not recommend our light transfer paper on 100% polyester materials.

We would recommend using a heavy bond paper or carton/chip board, similar to a hardback book cover. You may want to try a small piece of a transfer on a spare piece of paper you want to transfer on and make sure it works like you want. Depending on how thin the paper is, you may need to use less time to transfer it on.

This depends on the heat resistance of the plastic surface. You will need to check the heat resistance of the surface. The light transfer paper requires your iron or heat press to be 350-375 degrees F for transfer.

We do not recommend light transfer paper to be utilized on neoprene fabric.

It depends on what hard surface, we have customers who have applied it on hard book covers, like to personalize an agenda with a hard cover. You will not have to transfer as long nor as hot, as you don't have to drive the transfer film into a garment, but just make it adhere. And it’s always a good idea to do a test on a spare / small piece of the surface you intend to use. We also have a Wood Transfer options as well.

We have heard from customers who’ve made transfers on many interesting surfaces from book covers to tote bags, but we have not yet seen anyone use it on leather. We would recommend trying it out on a spare piece of leather you may have, as the adhesion does very much depend on the surface of the leather on how smooth / textured it is.

Fabrics which will melt at low temperatures such as a light Nylon or some light satin fabrics which if you iron them with 300 F they may melt or get yellow from the heat.

Please watch this video https://nufunactivities.com/burlap-mason-jar-candle-holders where the NuFun transfer paper Light has been used for burlap, but you can use the NuFun Transfer paper Dark as well, especially for darker burlap. There are more examples on https://www.pinterest.com/nufunactivities

The higher the cotton content the better, but you utilize up to a 50/50 as well.

We recommend our dark transfer paper for koozies

Light colored fabric cocktail napkins, yes absolutely – We recommend you test carefully for best heat setting on your hand iron ensuring you do not scorch the paper napkin, but enough heat to transfer your image.

Yes, it will work on Poly Propylene Fabrics, but you will have to reduce the temp of transfer, as the poly propylene fabric will melt or get scorched at the regular recommended temp for cotton. We would recommend trying a piece of this garment and test with lower temp. which will work for your fabric, as each is different. PP has a melting point that ranges from 160 to 166 °C (320 to 331 °F), depending on atactic material and crystallinity. Syndiotactic PP with a crystallinity of 30% has a melting point of 130 °C (266 °F), so you will have to do your own tests for your specific fabric.

We would not recommend using NuFun Activities transfer papers on silk.

Absolutely, that will work great. Please make sure you apply firm pressure for best results and peel hot (don't burn your fingers). Wait 5 seconds after pressing / ironing and then peel. For an even better wash durability you can, after you peeled the release paper, cover the image again with a parchment paper and iron it one more time for 10 seconds with firm pressure.

It is not recommended to utilize the light transfer paper on dark shirts.

Light transfer paper will work on light colored or white jeans. You will need to apply firm pressure and additional time when applying the transfer due to the higher thickness of the fabric. We do recommend dark transfer paper for jeans for the best results on jeans.

We would recommend you to get a sample of that specific umbrella canvas you would like to transfer on and test it. Our NuFun Activities Transfer paper works great on Canvas for indoor use, for example to make picture frames. Direct and prolonged exposure to the sun would fade your transfer.

It depends on the quality of your satin. Satin can be a mixture of Nylon, Polyester and or silk, all fabrics which have the tendency to heat up faster than cotton fabric. The mixture of what % of those fabrics are in your Satin will determine how well the transfer paper works with it. Best to do a small test on a piece of Satin you have and see how well it works for your application. It’s important that you may want to turn down the temp and time you’re ironing slightly to make sure you don't overheat the fabric and scorch it.

Yes, you can use a gray color shirt, but for best results you may want to cut around your design as otherwise you will have a slight clear film visible around your design where there is no color.

So, the darker the gray we recommend you our Transfer paper for Dark garments so that you will have the best possible result for the color to show up nice and bright.

Yes, this will be soft enough. The trick is to make sure you peel the release paper after ironing when still hot (don't burn your fingers), to get a good soft hand. In addition you could, after you ironed and peeled the release liner, let it cool and put a parchment paper over your design and iron it again for 10 sec to get an even softer hand.

Cutting and Application

Yes, you can use the Cricut Easypress, but make sure you DON'T use their provided heat transfer pillow. The slight soft (pillow) they are giving you with the purchase of the press. It doesn’t allow you to put enough pressure on to the transfer during the transfer process. Use a hard surface like a large cutting board and put an old pillowcase over top. This ironing surface will allow you to put firm, solid pressure on to the fabric during transfer for the best result.

Yes absolutely, preheat your press to 350F for Cotton Fabric, Press fabric for 3-5 sec to release moisture and remove wrinkles, set your press tat 40 to 60 psi or firm pressure, place your peeled transfer on to garment (design up) and protect with parchment paper, then press for 25 sec, peel cold the parchment paper off.

For the light T-Shirt Transfer paper ( double red line on the back) pls have the temp at 375F , Press fabric for 3-5 seconds to release moisture and remove wrinkles. Place a printed image face down on the garment (the lined side will be facing up). Set to 40-60 PSI or use firm pressure for best results. Press for 25 seconds.

Please remember the parchment paper should be utilized with the dark transfer paper only (double blue lines on the back) and it not supposed to stick to the fabric. It is to protect the fabric and design during the ironing process. See video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btyudS42hk8

The biggest issue related to not getting your transfer completely adhered is not having transferred long enough and without sufficient heat. Please make sure you have your hand iron on the hottest setting and transfer long enough; depending how thick your fabric is you may need to increase timeWhen you start peeling the transfer (still hot) it should come off like butter.

Transfer tape is not required for light transfer paper

MATERIALS

To Achieve best results; Dark Transfer paper must be applied to the substrate at 275-350 degrees F. We always recommend testing the substrate material prior to application.

Fabrics we recommend:

  • Cotton
  • Cotton/Poly Blends
  • Dark & light Khaki
  • Canvas
  • Lycra
  • Burlap

Fabrics dark transfer where the end user should research the substrate maximum heat resistance.

  • Dri-Fit
    • Dri fit material is normally made with 100% polyester. You can transfer our Dark Transfer Paper on to 100% polyester but carefully with adjustments to your transfer process. Depending the color of your shirt for example a green or red dri fit shirt you may need to use lower temp for transferring; if you use too high of a temp the ink from the shirt may migrate in to the heat transfer film. There is less color bleeding with a white dri fit shirt. We recommend to test on a sample before your project including washing, We recommend no higher of a temperature than the polyester/rayon setting on your iron. 275 F is the maxmum heat we also recommend.
  • Glass
    • The dark transfer paper could theoretically be applied to glass, as long it is an even smooth surface. Please know that the white layer will show up as white, not clear. You will have to cut off all the excess white you don't want to show up. In addition, you may want to test it on a sample to make sure it fits for your application and test the temp and time, as you may reduce the time and temp for this application, as low as 280 to 320F.
  • Hard Surfaces
    • It depends on what hard surface. Some customers have applied our dark transfer paper to hard book covers, like to personalize an agenda. You will not have to transfer as long nor as hot because you don't have to drive the transfer film into a garment, but just make it adhere. It is best is to use 300 F. with a shorter transfer. It’s always a good idea to do a test on a spare / small piece of the surface you intend to use.
  • Polypropylene Fabrics
    • You will have to reduce the temp of transfer, as the polypropylene fabric will melt or get scorched at the regular recommended temp for cotton. We would recommend trying a piece of this fabric and test with lower temp. which will work for your fabric, as each is different. PP has a melting point that ranges from 160 to 166 °C (320 to 331 °F), depending on atactic material and crystallinity. Syndiotactic PP with a crystallinity of 30% has a melting point of 130 °C (266 °F), so you will have to do your own tests for your specific fabric.
  • Jeans
    • Extra heat and pressure are needed depending on the thickness of the jeans.
  • Satin
    • ⦁ It depends on the quality of your satin. Satin can be a mixture of nylon, polyester and or silk, all fabrics which have the tendency to heat up faster than cotton fabric. The mixture of what % of those fabrics are in your satin will determine how well the transfer paper works with it. It is best to do a small test on a piece of Satin you have and see how well it works for your application. It’s important to turn down the temp and time you’re ironing down to make sure you don't overheat the fabric and scorch it.
  • Hemp
    • It will depend on the quality of hemp fabric and mixture of other fabrics with it. We recommend testing first.
  • Vinyl
    • You must understand what temp your vinyl can tolerate. Some very thin Vinyl's can't be heated to 275 and higher temps.
  • Polyester drawstring bag - like a sports bag
    • You can transfer our Dark Transfer Paper on to 100% polyester but carefully with adjustments to your transfer process. Depending the color of your bag for example a green or red bag you may need to use lower temp for transferring; if you use too high of a temp the ink from the bag may migrate in to the heat transfer film. There is less color bleeding with a white polyester item. The application will also depend on thickness and heat resistance of the fabric, since thinner fabrics may offer low heat resistance properties. We recommend to test on a sample before your project. We suggest to not go higher than the "Polyester/Rayon" setting on your iron.
  • Paper
    • We would recommend using a heavy bond paper or carton/chip board, similar to a hardback book cover. You may want to try a small piece of a transfer on a spare piece of paper you want to transfer on and make sure it works like you want. Depending on how thin the paper is, you may need to use less time to transfer it on.
  • Plastic Surfaces
    • You need to check on the heat resistance and test with a spare piece of the surface is compatible with the transfer

Yes, you can use the Cricut Easypress, but make sure you DON'T use their provided heat transfer pillow. The slight soft (pillow) they are giving you with the purchase of the press. It doesn’t allow you to put enough pressure on to the transfer during the transfer process. Use a hard surface like a large cutting board and put an old pillowcase over top. This ironing surface will allow you to put firm, solid pressure on to the fabric during transfer for the best result.

Preheat your press to 350F for Cotton Fabric, press fabric for 3-5 sec to release moisture and remove wrinkles, set your press tat 40 to 60 psi or firm pressure, place your peeled transfer on to garment (design up) and protect with parchment paper, then press for 25 sec, the parchment paper off COLD.

The weeding is necessary for our Dark Transfer Paper if you wish to remove the excess opaque coloring. Whatever is white, will show in an opaque color on your substrate.

Often common causes for this

  • The transfer was not peeled first
  • The transfer is put on backwards (image should be face up, not mirrored)

Yes, our transfer papers work great with any cutter machines such as the Cricut® or Silhouette®

Our transfer papers work great with either or an irona heat press machine .

Please remember the parchment paper should be utilized with the dark transfer paper only (double blue lines on the back) and it not supposed to stick to the fabric. It is to protect the fabric and design during the ironing process. See video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btyudS42hk8

Yes you can use most heat transfer tapes, which are available at many retailers. We do not have a preference.

One of our loyal customers and expert on the Cricut, reported the following settings for best results on the Cricut Air Explore2:
"I adjusted the "Printable Iron-On Dark" settings to the following:
Cut Pressure: 140
Multi Cut: 2X
Blade Type: Fine-Point Blade "
On the heat press you can use, depending on the thickness of your garment a temp between 275 to 350 F and firm pressure 30 to 50 psi.

Yes.

Yes.

No, you don't need to use a cutter. You can just cut the excess area around your design with scissors. Remember whatever is not printed on and transferred to your blank will appear in an opaque form.

PRINTING AND INK

Yes! We are proud NuFun Dark Transfer Paper can be utilized with both inkjet and laser printers.

Pigmented ink is compatible but you can use as well dye ink, which are most inks.

Regular printer ink from your standard inkjet printer such as a HP, EPSON, Lexmark, Brother, Canon etc. Additionally, you can print our dark with a color laser printer.

We do not recommend using sublimation ink for our Dark Transfer Paper.

Printer Media Print Mode
HP HP Iron on Transfer Normal
Epson Plain Paper Photo

If your HP Printer doesn't have the Iron-On Transfer paper selection, we recommend to use Plain Paper mode and select as print quality BEST

print that drawn image onto the NuFun Transfer Paper using an inkjet or laser printerYou can draw a picture on a regular sheet of paper, scan it into the computer, and then .

If you are using a Laser Brother printer, make sure you are using the single sheet feeding station and use medium to heavy print mode. If you are using an inkjet Brother printer, make sure no corners of the transfer paper are folded up and that the paper is nice and flat as you feed it into the printer. Please review the instruction sheet in the packaging or contact us directly at info@Nufunactivities.com for more support

Color vibrancy depends not only on the transfer paper but on the ink as well. We recommend using the original manufacturer’s ink.

NuFun Dark Transfer Paper you do NOT mirror the print. Print, peel, transfer.

Please print on the white site with NO lines.

Typically if you have lines showing up during your print it means that your print head is clogged and needs a print head cleaning. You should look at your printer owner’s manual for instructions. We’ll help you too – On most inkjet printers under printer properties/maintenance you’ll find the function. For HP printers you’ll find the function under properties/features/printer services.

With NuFun Transfer Paper you are able to transfer whenever you have time! Our paper does not expire after you print your image as long as the printed sheets are stored in a cool and dry environment away from exposure to sunlight . You can transfer today, next week or even months from now.

Absolutely you can print photos and transfer them on to most fabrics / textiles.

Foil Transfer Sheets

2 of the foil, 2 of the adhesive transfer sheets and 2 parchment papers

The idea of foil transfer is that you cut a writing or design on the adhesive sheet (you can use a scissor or a cutter such as Silhouette or Cricut cutter). Peel the excess adhesive liner off and then transfer the adhesive sheet in a mirrored form on the fabric. Then peel cold and cover the adhesive which is now on the garment with the foil, iron it and peel again when cold and voila you will have a golden wording or design on your shirt. Here is a great video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rmwv51JVYJY

We don't recommend using mugs, we only recommend it on flat surfaces where you can iron the adhesive and the foil layer on evenly.

Wood Transfer Paper

This transfer requires a porous surface and would likely slide off of fiberglass. We do not recommend utilizing this product on fiberglass.

Yes, this is a nontoxic product.

In general you can apply a clear coat of varnish after transferring it but we recommend to test it on a sample before you clear coat your main project, as some varnishes may be too harsh for the transfer. - Most do work but it is recommended to first test a small area.

Although we have only tested on craft untreated wood, many of our crafters have used painted wood with beautiful results. Please be aware that depending on the type of paint that is being used, you may see varied results. We recommend testing a corner of the painted wood or another painted piece all together before you create your finished product to ensure that it transfers how you would like. We also recommend that you refrain from painting the wood a very dark color, as the transfer will show up better with a lighter paint color. In addition, when painting the wood, try to use the least amount of paint possible (i.e. do not continue to layer the paint on) just use as much is needed to cover the wood completely.

You can use either InkJet or Laser for our NuFun Activities Transfer Paper for Wood.

We recommend utilizing a hand iron to transfer your print to the wood.Make sure to pre-iron the wood to release any moisture. This will allow for better adhesion and transfer.

The background of the transfer is clear so you can still see the grain of wood.

You can find our 10 and 25 packs available on our shop.

Sealants are not needed, as the transfer is water resistant.

Yes, absolutely - you can print in color on either your inkjet printer or on a color laser printer.

Our NuFun Wood Transfer paper can be used with Pigmented or regular Die inks. Please note that our NuFun Wood Transfer paper is as well compatible with Laser printers.

Unfortunately there is no good way to take the transfer off after you applied heat. Best way is to sand it down to the point the transfer disappears - it is important that the surface of the wood is still smooth
