TheMagicTouch has marketed their unique range of 123Flex and garment vinyl products for many years, with the current range now available in excess of over 160 different colours and effects. As with all flex products cut using traditional plotters, the transfers need to be weeded, which is considered as probably the most laborious, tedious and costliest part of the garment decoration process. However, innovation is on its way to help. TheMagicTouch announce the introduction of ‘easy-2-weed’™ a new improved feature for both the existing white 123Flex and 123Flex premium products. Using a bespoke precision engineering process during the manufacturing, an embossed effect on the hotmelt backside is applied enabling cut lines to be more visible thus making the weeding process easier and quicker. This unique innovation will apply initially to the white 123Flex products with other colours to follow in the future. The 123Flex with its lower tack carrier sheet and 123Flex Premium version with the higher tack carrier sheet for more precise and complex designs, are recognised as the best value flex products on the market. Both versions offer the unique option of a lower temperature, as low as 120°application, to ensure mixed fabrics and performance fabrics don’t scorch or leave heat press marks on the garments.
