For TheMagicTouch CPM transfer paper you use it as a buffer between your heat platen and your blank product. The TheMagicTouch T-Pad will act as an Isolator on top of your blank product and ensures that the blank product slowly heats up. This will give the toner time to transfer and attach to the blank product. Your press time will be between 60 and 90 seconds depending on your heat press, product material and size.

TheMagicTouch Release Paper
Our Release Paper comes in sheets and is designed to be heat resistance. The paper has a coating that has a high release factor and is similar to backing/kitchen paper we use in the kitchen. Because of the coating the toner or transfer film doesn’t stick on the release paper. That makes it perfect to cover transfer paper when it’s been pressed or after the application when you repress the transfer film into the fabric. You can not use release paper for sublimation as the sublimation pigments will penetrated the more open surface of the paper. Repressing with Release Paper will give the transfer a more matt finish.
