SmartCUT is a cross platform, user centric tool that is a key component to expanding the size constraints of popular print methods, especially as it relates to transfer printing commonly associated with garment decoration. This ground breaking application turns your letter/A4 sized printer into a tabloid ‘plus’ capable machine, allowing for the splitting and splicing of one graphic across two or more printed transfer sheets.
Use any oversized graphic, and the software will split it in half along the most logical path. You can choose to have it split along dark or light areas, depending on the color garment you will be pressing onto. With this software, you can make 3XL shirts that are not possible with even the most expensive of printing systems because you can gang up as many transfer sheets as you want.
SmartCUT was designed from the ground up with ease of use as a paramount consideration. Most functions are automated to allow you to focus on finding the best starting point to split each job. The software supports PNG files with transparent backgrounds.
The program works as an integral part of a decorating system, where the split pages are printed onto iColor® Standard transparent transfer media. The sheets are then lined up visually on the substrate through the transparent sheet.
SmartCUT opens the door for the iColor® 500 & 550 (as well as other popular brands) to print these common design sizes such as 15” square, as well as plus size garments such as 2X, 3X, 4X. The ability to print designs that properly fill out these large sizes creates the opportunity for high value garments that can fetch a premium price. The software allows owners of A4/Letter sized printers to have the print size benefits of a Tabloid or larger printers.
SmartCUT WORKS!!! A tremendous amount of research and testing has proven the concept that using the method implemented in this application will produce results for a very high percentage of designs that are virtually imperceptible by even those who know that a seam exists.
