This is a follow up video to the video called, “1 Step Self Weeding Color Laser Heat Transfer Paper.” In that video we talked about how to use the laser heat transfer paper and we pressed a shirt showing the peel with the final transfer result. Now in this follow up we take the test shirts from the above mentioned video and wash them in an automatic laundry machine. Then we take a close look at the transfer before washing and after washing. It’s a cool video that proves the worthiness of this transfer paper. As I would always say, “Pretty cool.”
The video is called, “RhinoTech’s Self Weeding Laser Heat Transfer Paper: Laundry Wash Test.” This is an educational screen printing video is about RhinoTech’s new Singlestep self weeding color laser heat transfer paper. The first video we did about this product showed the pressing of the transfer and gave instructions on how to use it with tips from my testing experience with the paper. Now as a follow up I made this video where we actually take a look at the transferred shirt before and after washing in the laundry. I thought this would be an interesting follow up video to the transfer video. Everyone always asks how many washes does it take before it will fade or stop fading. Well it turns out that this laser heat transfer paper stands up very well under washing in an automatic washing machine. Very nice indeed! This paper seems to be an excellent choice for doing 1 offs or low quantity orders which demand complex designs with multiple colors. You can do free standing text and other graphics that would normally look horrible with the polymer adhesive in between the image parts. It’s a pretty cool paper with a lot of potential and worth investigating to see if it’s right for you.
