How bright will the transfer glow and for how long?
*Like all glow in the dark products, the image needs to be ‘charged’ by exposing it to light before taking it into the dark – the longer it is ‘charged’, the more it will glow.
Will this paper work with my inkjet printer?
Almost all inkjet printers are compatible with this paper but there are just too many models on the market for us to test. We recommend testing the paper before production or attempting to print several sheets at once.
What ink is best to use?
We recommend pigment inks for best washability but you can use dye-based, sublimation or pigment inks. Most printers come with standard dye-based inks but some Epson printers come with pigment inks as standard e.g. Durabrite or UltraChrome. Leave the printed image to dry for 10-20 minutes before cutting or pressing.
What print settings should I use?
We recommend Photo Quality Settings but you should experiment with print settings until you find a setting which prints the best quality image.
Do I have to cut out my image?
Cutting around your image before applying is recommended as unprinted areas will appear as a white background on the fabric. You can cut out your image with a craft knife or scissors but contour cutting is recommended for best results. If contour cutting, set the blade to cut through the film layer only.
What colour(s) of fabric can I transfer onto?
Light-coloured and dark-coloured fabrics
Can this paper be hand-ironed?
Phosphor-Glow can be hand ironed, however, some household irons are not able to reach required temperatures for this paper. Heat press application is recommended for best results as due to the lesser amount of pressure and heat, ironing on the product will not be as durable when laundered. If you intend to use a hand iron for this transfer paper then please purchase a sample pack to check you are happy with the results.
