Transferring Designs

Postby innovadude » Sun Mar 08, 2009 8:52 pm

For those of us that do not have a plotter, what is the best way to transfer designs from paper onto the contact paper. my dyeing method is to contact paper the disc, then either draw simple sraight line images onto the contact paper, to place the regular paper on top of the contact paper and cut through both, which does not work very well, or print onto a piece of contact paper, place that onto the disc, and cover that image with a clear piece of contact paper, which also does not work well. So i am wondering what you Advanced dyers do for your images. thanks for looking

if you have a glass coffee table, rig up a lamp or even flashlight under the glass, secure your contact paper over the design and trace it on with a fine tipped permanent pen (so it wont smear)

You could also buy or make a light box but I also use the "lamp under the table" trick. I don't trace mine with a pen though I just cut it (I also use vinyl sticker for the design and then contact paper to transfer the design to the disc).

Just found this, seems like a cool way to make a cheap light box.

Get a piece of translucent white acrylic (you can get it at home depot, lowes etc....) and a bright light. The translucent white (2447 sign white for the technical color) or 2067 either way, will defuse the light perfect an allow you to trace the image onto the paper/vinyl.

Personally I like to print my images off on 28lb printing paper then cut out my stencil from the paper, then position it where I want it then spray some regular krylon black spray paint over it to transfer the image, then I still have my original stencil to re-use. Plus it's way faster transferring the image than to have to retrace it by hand.
