There are all sorts of creative options you can do with your Epson F2000. As garment decorators we are creative people, let’s explore this creativity with how to us screen print transfer foil on a shirt printed from the Epson SC-F2000. The foil I used.
Screen print transfer foil works similar on Epson UltraChrome ink as it does on plastisol.
Here is how to apply:
Just like with plastisol foil, it’s best to use a similar color under ink underbase as the foil. In this case I want to transfer foil to the red M.
Cut the foil to fit the area you want to transfer. IMPORTANT: Lay foil on wet ink color side up.
Apply a quick hover of the heat press to flash cure the ink around the foil so ink does not distort with extreme pressure.
Apply heavy pressure on press for 75 seconds at 320 degrees.
Be sure the shirt is completely cool before removing foil. You will want to experiment with heat press temperature and cure times for the best possible transfer.
Experiment with different colors and designs. Add this quick, easy, and inexpensive option to your services and charge a premium.
