Keep lines as thick as possible, especially when printing on mesh material.
Keep heat as low as possible
Avoid using flash
Additives - Low cure additives or low cure inks are HIGHLY recommended
NO BUTT REGISTRATION - We recommend printers create a "channel" between touching colors to reduce need for flash use
NO UNDERBASE - Stacking Colors (under base with top color) risks mis-registration due to intermediate heat step
** Typically the best results for consistency have come from single color customization designs. It can also be valuable to apply a quick heat and pressure "kiss" using a heat press to the final cured print.
Heat Applied Graphics Recommendations
Use materials that can adhere at 320 degrees or less if possible
Protect seat back from heat by using Teflon sheet over all exposed material
For multi color prints, a digital printable heat applied material is recommended
CAUTION: exposing the entire seat back to heat and pressure can cause areas of the seat back that have a double layer to adhere together and close. PULL APART IMMEDIATELY!
