Creating custom denim jackets or Jeans is one of our favorite things about the DigitalHeat FX systems. These transfers can be applied to almost any kind of fabric like cotton, polyester and even denim.
Custom denim items like jeans jackets are super trendy and popular, making them a hot selling item for your business. Plus, they’re easy to decorate!
For this project, we customized a high quality, Port Authority Denim Jacket. It’s a classic jean jacket with bronze buttons and a modern fit, offered in multiple sizes.
Here’s step by step instructions on how to use your DigitalHeat FX printer to create custom denim jackets.
Step 1: Using the “A” sheet of the EZ Peel 2 Step Paper, print your design on your DigitalHeat FX white toner printer.
Step 2: With the “A” sheet laying transfer side up on the heat press, add the “B” adhesive sheet on top. Top both sheets off with a finishing sheet and press!
Note: You can find heat press settings and instructions for the EZ Peel 2 Step Paper here.
Step 3: Remove the finishing sheet and slowly peel the adhesive “B” sheet from the “A” sheet.
Step 4: Trim the borders around the printed transfer on the “A” sheet to remove any excess adhesive.
Step 5: With your heat press set, dress your press in the following order:
- Heat Resistant Pad
- Denim Jacket (make sure to line up the area of the jacket you are printing on to the heat resistant pad).
- Printed Transfer
- Standard Finishing Sheet
Now you’re ready to press!
Step 6: Remove the denim jacket from the heat press and let it cool.
Step 7: Once the transfer is cool, perform a cold peel.
Note: It’s important to make sure that this peel is done quickly, ripping the transfer off like a bandage.
Step 8: Place the denim jacket back on the heat press with a flexible finishing sheet on top and press for the final time! This will give the transfer a more “matte” finished look.
Very quickly and easily, you can use a DigitalHeat FX white toner printer to customize a ton of garments like denim jackets and offer your customer a unique product!
