Focus on Transfer Printing & Heat Presses

Getting started in transfer printing is relatively easy and low-cost. All you need is a heat press and some heat applied transfers. However, if you are an already established business, we bring you the latest products and consumables over the next few pages.

Global Print Solutions Full photographic water-based transfers with just one screen

Screen printers are waking up to see the huge benefits of producing their own digital to screen transfers in house. This streamlined system combines the benefits of traditional screen printing with those of digital to produce exceptional results across a wide range of garments/ bags. Full photographic transfers using soft feel powder can be produced

using just one

screen efficiently and cost effectively. Thousands of transfers can be produced in one day. The transfers use Oeko-Tex approved inks, are sharp, bright, durable and stand up to regular machine washing. Such is the adaptability of the system that in just one pass a single screen can contain a range of individual designs contained in one basic outline. The screen stays the same, the design is changed digitally and the net result is a range of diverse and personalised options for the customer.

Oki Pro 9541WT

Oki has launched in the UK an exciting new machine. The Pro 9541WT supports sheet sizes of 13x19in. It is a five-station digital transfer printer for the production of customised garments, hard surface goods and more. What makes this different to other printers is that not only will it print CMYK + white toner printing. It provides cost -savings with the ability to use true black (K) instead of composite black (CMY). But it allows printers to print not just paper but polyester film to produce digital to screen type transfers.

Paul Brook, director of GPS, said: “This is a real game changer for a lot of companies looking to produce not only laser transfers but also digital to screen transfers onto film cost effectively and efficiently. There has never been a better time for printers of all sizes to upgrade their Oki printer to this stand out machine.”
