"Vicki, I use either Stahls Thermo Film or one of the other films that shrink very little on first color. The longer the time the more the first layer seems to shrink causing uneven edges. With Stahls the first layer goes down at 4 sec, second layer…"

"Unless a team specifically asks for 2 colors like red and white on royal.  I try to lead them toward outline numbers - garment color shows thru and half the cost  of 2 layers."

That's what my heat press says when the timer runs out. I think I'll be hearing "beep, beep, beep" in my sleep tonight, but the jerseys and shorts are finished and came out GREAT!

Cut, cut, cut ~ Eco film

Posted on August 29, 2010 at 9:55pm 3 Comments

Spent the day cutting eco film to put on 24 jerseys and shirts. The backs of the jerseys get a name and 7" number. The fronts get a left chest logo and a center chest 4" number. Then the shorts get a smaller number. Need to learn how to nest jobs using the Ioline software...

Expect tomorrow's post to be titled "print, print, print" So glad I don't have to mask this stuff!

Learning Experience

Posted on June 3, 2010 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

Well, this afternoon was a learning experience. Our first time masking by ourselves. We did ok! We learned the life of TTD mask is not as long as I would have thought. But we also learned that you can do a lot with tweezers and a squeege ;-) We only lost one transfer to TTD past its prime. On a whole a good afternoon.
