I'm really struggling with this. I think I have the first part of the process sorted, but when it comes to pressing it onto a t-shirt, my results are terrible, very patchy. Not sure if it is my heat press. It is rather elderly.

I was having problems pressing the A and B papers together until I learnt that the temp I was using was too high. Its a natural reaction to raise the temp not lower it. Pressing onto the shirt was never a problem though. Are you using enough pressure? Maybe thats the problem.
Forever have a new video out with a troubleshooting section at the end especially for this paper. It will answer many questions.

I've had a look at their video and it doesn't cover my problem. I've tried everything from light pressure to only just being able to close the press and a range of temps. I leave it to completely cool. When I try to peel it, it does not come off very easily and takes a lot of the transfer with it. I was thinking that the temp might be out on my press as it is quite old.

If I remember rightly the temp to press onto shirts is 145c. The rest you are doing is ok. Medium pressure then leave to cool.
Are the A and B papers compleatly bonded? Maybe where the transfer comes away there is not enough "white glue" on the toner. That has happened to me and to cure the problem I lowered the temp to 135 to bond the two together.

Here is the www for white toner info. Maybe there is something on there that will help.

for the press onto garment - try about 5 seconds at 140c - medium pressure
then must be completely cold
whip the backing off - like a plaster.
If you are getting white not sticking, try slightly dampening the garment - never pre press , - tshirt can be too dry!
