    I'd say try less time (8 or 9 minutes).

    I doubt whether pressing times or temps will improve your colours though. Are you using the recommended ICC profile when printing?

    Hmm... I don't pre-warm mugs when using the oven. Just preheat the oven itself to 180 C (using the thermometer) and bung the mug(s) in. I remove wraps straight away after cooking. I used to dunk them...

    VAT Flat Rate...

    First off, let me state, I'm way out of my depth here as I've never had anything to do with VAT registration in the past.

    I'm just wondering how the VAT Flat Rate applies to retailers (such as us)...

    I can confirm that my version of Affinity Designer on Win7 produces the same Print dialogue box as that shown by PW66 above. I can choose my ICC profiles from the dropdown list.

    Can you not print directly from Affinity Designer? I thought it accepted ICC printer profiles.

    You can sublimate onto neoprene. It contains polymers, but whether it would need any special treatment for sublimation I can't say, as I've never tried it.

    If you're talking about sublimation here, then a sublimated shirt does not 'peel.' I think you are getting mixed up between sublimation and other methods, such as heat transfers and HTV.

    Yeah, it would work better on plain white tiles I suppose.

    It prints well, using the settings provided on the I-Sub page, and the heat doesn't seem to affect the adhesive. Just make sure you print...
