Dark Self Weeding is a heat applied Laser Transfer Paper for pressing onto black/dark, white or light cotton, polyester or polycotton fabrics.

Printed A-Foil

Remove all Teflon from your heat press.

Place printed A-Foil directly onto the rubber base your heat press with the glossy/unprinted side facing down.

White Booster (B Paper)

Place B-Paper on top of A-Foil with coated (plain) side facing down.


Position two sheets of Seal Paper on top of the B Paper; so that the entire platen is covered (this is to prevent the edges of the B Paper from sticking to the top of your press and causing scum to soil to the top of your press and therefore transfer onto your textile when the time comes)

Press for 2 minutes at 160°c (320°f) - Medium Pressure.

When the press time has elapsed; let the initial heat disperse (5 seconds).

Peel A+B Apart

Peel the papers apart in a smooth; fluid motion, from one corner to the opposite.

Trim the Foil

Trim the edges from your A Foil transfer (you will notice a white line from the adhesive, this is what we are removing).


Position onto Substrate

Position A Foil transfer onto your substrate; glossy side facing up.

Press for 30 seconds - Medium Pressure - at the following temperature:

Polyester/Polycotton blends at 110°C (230°F)
Cotton at 160°C (320 °F)
Leather at 120°C (248 °F)
Nylon at 110°C (230 °F)
Book Covers at 110°C (230 °F)
Nylon at 110°C (230 °F)

Cool then Peel

Remove your substrate from the press and allow the transfer to cool completely.

Once cool, remove the A Foil from the substrate in a smooth, fluid motion; from one corner to the opposite.


Once the foil has been removed; place your substrate back onto the press and cover the transfer with a Seal Sheet.

Press for 30 seconds at the same temperature as application - Medium Pressure.



The Transfer is Complete.
