A Dream Came True
It has been 25 years since the first laser copier was launched and almost that long since people started to use laser copiers and printers as a digital transfer tool for garments. Printing and pressing a full-color image or photograph on to a t-shirt using laser printed heat transfers is a simple and inexpensive way for businesses like printers/copiers, t-shirt shops, screen printers and others to decorate all types of garments and promotional items. Unfortunately this simple and inexpensive way was up to now only limited to white or light colored garments. Printing on dark garments has always been a challenge. Even products with excellent washability and color such as FOREVER’s “Laser-Dark” have satisfied customer needs with the ability to print photographic images, the application of letters, numbers and logos have needed an additional cutting and a weeding process. As a result, people have always dreamed about transfer printing on dark garments in an easier way.
White Toner Made it Possible
The brand new CMYWhite printers from OKI remove the last barrier in creativity and design. The new transfer papers from FOREVER for white toner technology make transfer printing on dark garments as easy as on white garments. The images are soft, bright and t-shirts can be washed over 30-40 times without seeing a significant degrade of the transfer. The color black is achieved through a blend of the other three colors (CMY) and white toner covers the complete image except black printed areas. The printer software automatically places more white toner on light colors and less white toner on dark colors, performing the desired, optimal color reproduction.
Low Investment Cost
The printers are quite economical especially when compared to direct to garment and screen printing machines.
Low Production Cost
Even though the cost of the white toner is higher than the other toners, the average cost of printing a full-color A4 image is less than $.75. The high-quality transfer papers from FOREVER are very economical....
Attractive for All Sizes of Business
The applications where white toner can be used is extremely broad. From small business printing single t-shirts on demand to large screen printers looking for a fast and effective alternative, utilizing the white toner printer allows almost anything to print on dark colored garments or other dark colored substrates without any cutting required. This versatile system can also be used in industrial production for items such as printing on wood, ceramics, metal, glass, carton or other colored substrates.Easy Application Digital transfer printing with white toner is much like printing with a regular color laser. The primary design programs of Corel Draw, Photo Shop and Illustrator are still used as normal.
High Speed Production
The OKI can produce 500 to 1,000 prints an hour. The transfer application on garments takes around one minute for light colored garments and around 1.5 minutes for dark colored garments, allowing a worker to transfer print approximately 40/60 shirts per hour and per heat press. A worker can operate two heat presses simultaneously. Six workers can easily handle 4,000 t-shirts in an eight hour shift. Total investment cost of such an operation including two white toner printers and 12 transfer presses is $30,000 - $40,000, depending on the size of the printer and the quality of the heat press.
The Benefits of Our White Toner System Compared to other Printing Processes
More Efficient than Screen Printing
♦ Digital transfer technologies offer an important advantage over screen printing. Because of the need to perform color separation, ink and clean screens, and apply colors in single layers, screen printers cannot make money on custom and short run orders.
♦ With digital decoration, you can design a custom image, print one transfer, apply it and sell the finished product for a handsome profit. See below for more detailed profitability and ROI information.More Versatile than Dye Sublimation
More Versatile than Dye Sublimation
♦ Dye sublimation is a great digital process for decorating rigid substrates like mugs and mouse pads and producing extremely washfast custom apparel. However, dye sublimation only works on polyester fabric or polymer-coated substrates, and cannot be used on non-white garments without dramatic color shifts.
♦ Dye sublimation only works on white and pastel apparel. Thanks to its unique CMYW toner set, the OKI PRO 920 WT produces vivid opaque photo quality transfers on garments of any color.
♦ Dye sublimation is limited to polyester garments and pre-treated, polymer-coated substrates. The OKI PRO 920 WT can be used on a wide variety of fabrics including cotton, polyester, cotton-poly blends, acrylic and more. Using our paper, transfers can be applied to a variety of uncoated rigid substrates.More Economical and Productive Than Direct to Garment Printers
More Economical and Productive than Direct to Garment Printers
♦ Direct to garment printing is a digital process that can apply ink directly to garments. Depending on the model, black garments can be imprinted using a white ink under base. Direct to garment printers generally cost twice as much as a OKI PRO 920 WT laser printer.
♦ Direct to Garment printers require that the garment is pre-treated before printing, which adds cost and time. If the pre-treatment is not applied correctly, the printed image may be unusable. No such requirement is necessary for the OKI PRO 920 WT LED transfer processIn order to image a dark shirt, DTG printers use white ink cartridges containing Titanium Dioxide. The TIO2 has a tendency to settle when idle, causing clogged print heads and lines.
♦ In order to prevent these problems, daily maintenance is required. The OKI PRO 920 WT requires no such maintenance and produces vivid opaque photo quality color transfers on colored garments using unique self-weeding papers; all without the risk of clogging or damaging the printers's internal mechanism.
♦ Because of the potential damage from clogged heads and lines, most DTG printers only warrant the heads for six months. The OKI PRO 920 WT comes with a one year on-site warranty and five year print head warranty.
♦ DTG printers are "one trick ponies". They can only be used to make shirts. The OKI PRO 920 WT is a versatile platform that can image shirts and a wide variety of rigid substrates.
