    Hey Guys, was wondering if anyone has ever found a printable heat transfer vinyl for shirts that has a totally flat (as in no shine) look. Everything I have tried that claims it is matte finish still has a fair amount of sheen to it. Which in my opinion gives it a patch look once on the shirt.
    Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
    thanks so much:thankyou:

    I haven't come across anything that would actually be a true matte finish. Not in terms of a heat transfer that you are talking about.

    Stahls also has a new product that is supposed to stay matte finish.

    If you re-press the garment without the original protective film (heated directly to vinyl) it can make it glossy as well.

    if it's what I'm thinking... DON'T BUY IT! in the middle of a 600$ issue with them for material failure of their new transfer material/tape. they canned their really, really good mid-gloss transfer and replaced it with a matte... that rips and wrinkles.

    The stuff from Stahls (I haven't tried it yet) is called Cad-Cut Premium Plus. Is that what you are talking about?

    I just asked for a sample roll. It's quite a bit cheaper than Siser and ThermoFlex.

    Therma Flex, Sisser, Stahls, no one has provided me anything that does not have a gloss look to it, even though they say it is matte. Last show I was at, I asked Sisser to send me a sample print on their matte, not blank that I have to print, but a print, never got it, Their product is good, but still has a gloss look. If you find something let us know!!!!

    Was just reading the tshirt forum and they say if you press a second time with parchment paper it dulls the shine down to matte finish

    I have a sample already pressed by stalls and it's awesome. Looks like silkscreen and stretches extremely well!

    The Cad-Cut Premium Plus is awesome. Kraft paper can be used to dull the shine as stated above.
