- LaserFlex foils in different colors
- Pillowslip (e.g. IKEA "GURLI")
- Material to cover the engraving table
- Transfer press
- Make sure that you have sufficient vacuum to keep the foil in flat position
- Make sure that the graphics are inverted
- Select "mirror horizontally" in the printer window
Step 1: Design
Make your own design or import our template into your graphic program. Send the individual graphics to the laser using the parameter settings below. We already inverted the graphics.
In the printer driver of JobControl you can easily invert your graphics. For more complex designs it can be helpful to invert them before you send them to the laser.

Step 2: Laser process
Make the parameter settings in the material database. Parameters can differ depending on the machine used and the laser power.
Step 3: Post-processing
Now it's time to iron the different designs on the pillowslip.
Heat the transfer press to 165° C (329° F). First iron the pillow slip without LaserFlex foil to make the surface flat.
Now position the first LaserFlex part on the textile and press it for 17 seconds. Let the material cool completely before you remove the transfer foil.
Repeat this process with all design elements.
Once all foils have been ironed onto the textile, put the finished iron slip into the transfer press using the same parameters to smooth the layers.
