Transfers to painted licence plates
Posted by: Ted Geary (---.eastlink.ca)
Date: May 18, 2007 12:36PM

I have tried an endless number of times to transfer Laser copier/printer images
to Painted Aluminum Licence Plates with mixed results. Sometimes I would get a
near perfect transfer but addictional copies would peel from the plate using an
identical image, heat and pressure!! Manufactures of the transfer paper are of
no help! I have varied the heat and pressure but nothing changes!! I am a small privider of custom licence plates and want to supply a
a quality product. What am am I doing wrong? Does the plate need some form of
pretreatment? I have cleaned the plate with achole and acidtone without results.
I gave up and switched to Dye Sublimation at the suggestion of one helpful
production manager. The quality of the image is great on the Dye Sub plate but
rapid fading is a serious problmn. Can someone help me before I leave this World? I am using Artainum UV ink. Please help me solve one or both of these issues! Sincerely Ted Geary. Dartmouth. NS
