(!) Please test this product prior to production to determine the best settings for your equipment. yolö cannot be held liable for any loss or injury arising out of the use of, or inability to use this product.
*We cannot guarantee compatibility with specific printers unless they are listed as compatible. If in doubt, consult your printer manufacturer before use. Please test this product prior to production to determine the best settings for your equipment. We recommend testing the paper before production or before attempting to print several sheets at once.
Is this product suitable for any type of mug?
Mugs are available with different coatings - we recommend asking your mug supplier if they are compatible with laser heat transfer paper. From our experience, we have found that uncoated mugs give the best results (those not designed for sublimation)
Will this product work on other ard surfaces such as wood and leather?
We have tested this product on both wood and leather and have had good results. However, as there are various types of wood and leather, you may have to experiment in order to find the ideal application settings.
Do I have to glaze ceramic items?
Mugs can be glazed after transferring using a mug glazer or regular oven. This will increase durability. Since the image is transferred onto the mug's surface, it may be susceptible to scratches - If you are producing items subject to daily use then we would recommend a sublimation process.
*Will this paper work with my laser printer?
We cannot guarantee compatibility with specific printers. If in doubt, consult your printer manufacturer before use. Please test this product prior to production to determine the best settings for your equipment.
What print settings should I use?
Run a few sheets of blank paper through your printer to warm it up and select normal print/image quality. Starting with a normal or plain paper setting, print one sheet of transfer paper at a time using a bypass tray if possible. Gradually increase the paper weight setting** until the toner fuses well and the image does not smudge.
**Papers will usually work better on a slower paper setting e.g. heavy paper, transparency or label mode but always start with a normal paper setting and increase the paper weight setting gradually to reduce the chance of jamming.
Do I have to cut out my image?
Yes. Trim away excess transfer areas but don't cut too close to the image - leave a border around it.
What colour(s) of surface can I transfer onto?
This product is recommended for white or light coloured surfaces. You cannot transfer a colour lighter than the colour of the surface itself.
