 Good stuff!
Reviewed by Pete 7/15/2018 9:02:15 PM

Good hand, holds colour and is colour fast when printed with Mimaki ES3 inks. Cuts well on Graphtec. 305 at 20 seconds with 5 second prepress is the number that works on either Fusion or Knight with a second 7 second press after peel with Teflon sheet. Medium tack mask seems best. 100% cotton is the medium we use for application. Good value!

 Great For Cotton ONLY!

This stuff cannot be beat for price and quality on 100% cotton apparel ONLY! Do not use on polyester of any percentage or you will get bleed through.

 WAY too difficult to figure out where to order!

I am wasting an incredible amount of time trying to find cad prints price calculator and where to upload my artwork. A very un-user friendly site for those of us who don't order here frequently

 Easy to work with!
Reviewed by Pablo Pichardo 4/2/2017 10:30:36 AM

LOVE that this material! It's so easy to weed and work with!! The only downside is that it absorbs the color of some polyester material and discolors very quickly.. Kind of embarrassing when having to face your clients and your clients customers wearing a dingy, discolored and faded shirt after only one month! Still doing some test and researching other non bleeding polyester performance shirts to accommodate this material. On cotton, this material is great! Over all, just make sure your settings on your printer are set to the profile of this material and you should be good to go!

 Web site and stupid people

I am trying to order a CAD print - I click on Express print - it send me to a page to buy material - the lead page says to click on the material and upload artwork - your website is too complicated for stupid people like me. I am sure someone will call and point out the error of my ways in trying to navigate the web site -

 Stahls does not honor product guarantee
Reviewed by Micaela Cook 11/3/2016 12:40:24 PM

I have spent thousands of dollars with Stahls over the years and used this material often. I received a bad roll of material that peeled off of garments after 1 wash. I had to replace garments and repress shirts for several of our customers. I went back to Stahls for reimbursement. They made me jump through hoops and have still not reimbursed me.

I've had my BN-20 for 3 years, started using Express Print for more than a year. The colors have been great and lasting. I have test shirts of my own with more than 30+ washings, purposely incorrectly (hot wash, right-side out, high heat drying, etc.) all still great. Used on 1,200+ pieces of apparel.Now have a new VersaCAMM-VS-300i now too, getting a 30" roll for it. Customers, not a single complaint.

 Great Product!

I was using Roland HTM2 t-shirt material & was having problems with it. Since I've switched to this product I haven't had any issues. This is stronger & more durable than any material I've used. I will continue to use this product!

I am new to doing heat transfers and I must say this transfer material is the best out of every brand i have used. It lasts and keeps it's color. We use a bn-20.

 Works Great
Reviewed by Michele 1/29/2015 6:58:08 PM

I have had no fading issues with this product. I am using a Roland VersaCAMM SP300i with eco solvent inks and the prints look great and have a soft hand. I have had no complaints of fading quickly.

 Looks & prints Great
Reviewed by jacob 6/8/2014 12:59:13 AM

I used this material three times with a BN20 and the print only lasted about three washes. I used my Mimaki CJV30-130 twice and no problem, but this unit has three heaters vs one (BN20) and it makes a big difference.

 Looks great, prints great, weeds great.
Reviewed by Kris Haase 6/4/2014 1:50:31 PM

I have really enjoyed this product. I use my Mimaki CJV, solvent ink. I have printed, transferred and washed the product. I'm no were close to 50 washings, but I'm happy with the colors. Remember preheat, platen heat and post heat make a difference in how well your product prints and cures the ink. Using a GEO Knight heat press, followed heating instructions as indicated. I made sure to prepress my shirts 10 to 15 seconds before applying the transfers.

 Fades in about 3 washes
Reviewed by Miguel 4/25/2014 8:51:29 PM

Nice smooth material but is starts fading in the first washes. Using Roland BN-20 with Roland Inks and Insta press 320F for 15 Seconds.

 Looks great, but fades very quickly
Reviewed by Scott 11/7/2013 11:22:15 AM

This product is easy to use and produces fantastic looking designs, but the colors fade VERY VERY quickly. No chance that it will come CLOSE to 50 washes! Maybe it's the water in the North East?! BTW, I'm using a Roland BT-20 with Roland inks and a FUSION heat press.
