TTD Easy Mask Print and Cut Masking Material Masking your Print and Cut Materials is as Easy as TTD! Most of the application tapes in the industry are manufactured to transfer sign vinyl which does not require heat. When using these tapes to apply our products, you may be left with an adhesive residue. In addition, the tape may be difficult to remove which slows down the production process. A great deal of time was spent formulating a transfer tape that works well with our heat transfer materials. This CLEAR mask allows you to accurately place the image on the garment, and also releases easily after heat application. We require that when using our print and cut materials, that you use our TTD Easy Mask for the best application results.

Place your squeegee at a 45° angle over the center of the image. Using örm pressure, push the squeegee towards the outer edge of the image. This removes any trapped air between the image and the mask Repeat this process in several directions Lift a corner of the mask. Use a steady motion to separate the mask from the image.
Place the transferred image back on the shiny side of the original masking paper that you set aside.
We recommend using a cold laminator with our mask for large production runs
