Loading and Exit Tray
TrimFree should be printed using the by-pass tray. If your printer has a rear exit door that will allow the paper to exit straight out the back we suggest you test the paper using this configuration.
For the fuser to properly fuse the toner to the paper we suggest using Heavy Paper or Label Mode. You may need to test 2 or 3 different settings to find the best setting for your printer. To check for good toner adhesion, run your finger across the printed image. If any toner transfers to your finger you should set your paper mode setting on your print driver to a heavier setting.
Although testing has been done on the above brands of printers, it is recommended that you do your own testing due to the many different models in the market.

To remove moisture and bring the shirt to the correct pressing temperature it is critical that the shirt is pre-pressed prior to applying the transfer.
TrimFree, as with all transfer papers for light shirts, requires Maximum pressure. Using maximum pressure will ensure the transfer paper will peel correctly and increase the washability of the design.
It is important to wait 7 to 10 seconds prior to peeling the transfer. Do not remove the shirt from the press prior to peeling, doing so will cause the transfer to cool too quickly making the transfer difficult to peel. When peeling, use a slow and consistent motion. DO NOT cover your transfer with Teflon when pressing TrimFree. Most t-shirt fabrics only require a 7 second wait period prior to peeling, heavier fabrics such as sweat shirt material usually require the full 10 seconds. Because there is such a wide variety to different fabrics we suggest you test your material to determine the best wait time.
TrimFree works best with graphics and designs that have solid colors such as corporate logos or plain type.
TrimFree is best suited for logos or graphics, if you are printing large square images or photographs we suggest using Paropy CL 135.
