*B&V Transfer Paper - CUSTOM SHEET*

$29.90 AUD

You can either choose to receive 4 Standard or 2 Large sheets of your image. Standard size is 10x 13cm. Large is 13 x 20cm.

Important things to note for successful image prints:

  • We highly recommend your image having "white" background (see 2nd photo). We find the largest colour differences between screen & printer come with background colours. You can then transfer the image onto white or pastel coloured clay effectively.
  • We recommend Bright & Pastel tones (see 2nd photo). Dark colours through a colour printer often lose the black needed to deepen them.
  • Steer clear of black (try Navy, Maroon or Dark Purple instead) and try colours with high C, M & Y values instead.
  • We can do 100% black ink print through a different printer which is very effective if you would like that instead of colour.
  • We recommend you try printing your image on a home printer first to understand how it may look as it can be quite different to the screens with display in RGB & with intense brightness.
  • Your image must be created in CMYK, 300dpi & saved as a .png, .pdf, .psd or .ai.
  • Your image must be 100mm x 130mm (Standard) or 130mm x 200mm (Large). Your image should be designed to one of these sizes or larger.
  • CMYK: Prints do not print in RGB & cannot mimic the high bright & saturations from web images.
  • There are no refunds or returns on custom products. However be assured we will not print your image if we believe it will not come out well. 

General Transfer Paper Notes:

Curated & printed at B&V HQ our Transfer Papers are fresh way to easily add patterns & art onto clay. The printed image is transferred to your clay & then the paper is washed away with water, leaving only the pattern behind.

  • Printed images are a little more muted vs digital images.
  • The water soluble paper is a cream colour so will look a little different in person with the clearer, bolder colour occurring once you transfer it to your clay.
  • Any "white" pieces are transparent on the paper, meaning the clay colour you choose will show through. White clay is the most effective though pastel can look great too.
  • We take all care to colour match our listings but colours vary from screen to screen & device to device.
  • When baking, colours may change slightly, this will all depend on the clay.
  • While sealing is not necessary, vanishes, glazes & doming resins will give a brightness & richness to the final product.
