Re-Design Transfer Tool
This transfer tool is a must for large transfers to ensure a good adherence to the piece and prevent air bubbles. Featuring a double-ended design to make applying transfers quick and easy.
How To Apply Your Transfer (full instructions are also included with your transfer):
Apply to a clean dry surface. For painted surfaces, allow at least 48 hours for your paint to fully cure before applying the transfer (longer if the conditions are cold and drying times are extended).
Each transfer consists of two sheets, one is the matte release paper and the other is a transparent paper with the printed adhesive transfer itself. Handle carefully when removing from packaging and placing on to the desired position as the transfer is extremely thin and sticky and, once adhered, will be impossible to remove without tearing. Also included is a wood application tool, which rubs down the design onto the surface, but a transfer tool will allow you to cover larger areas more quickly and thoroughly.
1. With the release paper still attached, experiment with where you want to place the transfer sections on your project (TIP - when working on furniture it is often very helpful to lay your piece on its back so that the front is facing upwards and remember to check where your hardware will go, so that you don’t end up covering over a piece of the design you want on show when you replace handles etc)
2. Gently pull back the release paper 1 to 2 inches from the top edge of the transfer. If working with a large design, tape down the top released corners of the transfer to ensure that the rub-on stays exactly in place while doing the transfer. Then slowly and carefully remove the rest of the release paper and tape
down the corner and edges every few inches of the transfer (TOP TIP - I always use Low Tack Frog Tape when applying over painted surfaces. Many of the cheaper, masking tapes will pull your paint off when you remove)
3. Working from the top to the bottom, rub off the design using the wooden stick provided or a plastic card, ensuring as you carefully pull away the transparent film that the transfer has fully released and none of the small details have been missed. If anything has been missed, lay the transfer back down and go over the area again
4. Once the entire design has been transferred, make any touch ups desired and gently smooth down any bubbles or edges by rubbing gently with a soft cloth.
To Remove A Transfer:
If you ever need to remove your transfer, gently scrape off with a smooth edge tool. It may also help to soften the adhesive by blow drying first.
