When burning Evolon we recommend you avoid breathing in the vapours, working in a well ventilated area and wearing a respirator.

Answer
Depends on the weight of Lutradur you are using, and how you are using it. The heavier weights will take a lot of stitching; the lighter weights, if fused onto a supporting material, can also be stitched like this.
Answer
The heavier weights of Lutradur can be run through the printer without backing paper; however, because of its structure some of the ink is inevitably lost. We recommend lighter weights should be attached to freezer paper prior to printing. However experimentation with your printer settings is recommended.
