Laser cutting heat transfer appliqués is quick, easy, and precise by using your Epilog Laser system and a PVC-free heat transfer product. Kiss cutting the graphics with your laser and applying them to a shirt takes a matter of minutes. You can even create multi-colored appliqués by combining multiple colors of transfer materials to your design.
It's very important to use a PVC-free heat transfer products with the laser. We used Siser EasyWeed Heat Transfer product. Any Siser material marked "Compsition: PU" is PVC-free.
Green Vector Line (Kiss-cut settings): 13-15% speed, 1% power, 500 frequency, 1200 dpi
Adjust the settings for your laser and wattage using the suggested settings from the manual.
Open the file and modify the design as you would like.
Next, cut a sheet of the White EasyWeed material to fit inside your laser, and place it into the upper left corner of your system.
Now send over the Color Mapping speed and power settings (adjusted for your laser wattage) and cut the appliqué material. It's best to test your settings on a small test piece to find the perfect kiss-cutting settings for your wattage of laser.
Once you have kiss cut your heat transfer materials, peel away all the excess material that you do not want to heat transfer to your t-shirt.
Load your shirt into your heat press, and place your heat transfer material on the shirt (sticky side down). Now simply follow the Siser supplied heat and time settings, and your heat press directions for transferring the heat transfer graphic to your t-shirt.
Note: If you are using an iron to apply the transfer material, use the heat setting on your iron that matches the material of the shirt you are using. Place a sheet of plain white paper between the iron and the heat transfer plastic. Then apply medium constant pressure to the transfer material, without sliding the iron back and forth. Sliding the iron around can cause stretching and wrinkles on the shirt.
When the heat press is done, remove the shirt from the press and enjoy your custom t-shirt design - cut with an Epilog Laser system!
