DIGITAL HEAT TRANSFER SYSTEMS x TWO!

RhinoTech now offers two types of digital heat transfer papers so that you can transfer directly to  the deepest of black, blue, the darkets of Indigo, red, orange & other dark garments and fabric. It also prints the whitest of WHITE – no gray tones visible. RhinoDARK (in 2 sizes) and RT SunAngel DARK are the bomb.

These papers also produce cool images when heat transferred to white and light color apparel and an applied Textile Metallic Foil overlay. To add even more depth, crunch the foil and then heat press on top of the design for a interesting effect. The design will pop!

Here is info and the directions on how to digitally print using RT SunAngel DARK (RhinoDARK instructions will follow in the second installment):

The RT SunAngel system includes Transfer paper, Laser Printers and Toners. There’s a printer specifically to offer:
1) FLUORESCENT color toners! This laser printer enables the paper to be printed from the tray and straight out through the back; the sheet doesn’t have to go through a roller-type system.
2) FLUORESCENT WHITE toner that has two white toner cartridges to ensure opacity.
3) Traditional CMYK toners
4) WHITE toner.

This printing system involves a simple, TWO-STEP process using the A/Image Sheet where you will print on the smooth side & the B/Transfer Sheet with a white coating.

Step 1: Print design with color printer on smooth side of A Sheet/Image sheet in a mirror image to apply color. Then run the same sheet through the WHITE printer that will apply the white toner to the design.

Step 2: Marry the A/Image sheet with the B/Transfer sheet in the heat press.

Fold back a corner so that when it comes off press, you can HOT PEEL easily starting w/the corner and pulling back in one smooth motion. Place parchment sheet on top and heat press at 270° w/heavy pressure for 30 seconds.

IMMEDIATELY, PEEL THE B/TRANSFER SHEET OFF OF THE A/IMAGE SHEET.

At this point, you will now see that everywhere there was toner, the White Coating on the B/Transfer sheet has transferred on top of the toner.

Next, we recommend trimming along the edge of the transfer.

Final steps: place dark shirt on press, place parchment sheet on top of shirt and press
shirt for a few seconds to remove any moisture and wrinkles. Remove parchment paper.

Place transfer in position on shirt. Place parchment paper on top. Press at 270° w/heavy pressure for 30 seconds. Remove parchment and let shirt cool to the touch prior to peeling the transfer paper off the shirt.

For maximum durability, you can repress the shirt for 10-15 seconds to make sure that transfer is embedded deeply into shirt fibers. Remove parchment. Voila!

NEED HELP COMING UP WITH A REUNION T-SHIRT SLOGAN?

We are in the heart of reunion t-shirt printing season. And, that’s fortunate for all of us in the digital, screen and graphic printing businesses who will produce short or long-run t-shirt projects for family, high school or other gatherings in the next several months. Whether you operate from a part-time garage-based printing business, a store-front location, an embroidery + digital printing shop, a silk screen printing commercial enterprise or digital printing company – everyone reaps the benefits. And, the graphic designers are pretty excited to unleash extreme, comic reunion designs and slogans on the masses.

  We are the people our mom warned us about.laughing imagelaughing image

In their blog, bluecotton.com offers some pretty F.U.N.N.Y. reunion slogans. Click HERE to read their suggestions for some good one-liners. And, then there are these from Zazzle.com.  Both companies offer a place to start when needing shirts with comic slogans. And, one tip. With children and tweens in the mix, remember to check on the slogan rating before authorizing the printing order.

The survivors and ‘thrivers’ of reunion-land are all the t-shirt printers and their behind the scenes support; companies like RhinoTech who manufacture and distribute digital, screen and graphics equipment including digital heat transfer papers and printers and screen cleaning products, washout booths, filtration systems and more. Because of eco-friendly cleaning products, for example, screen frames are cleaned quickly and fully for reuse to enable the printers to continue to produce millions of reunion t-shirts on a nation-wide basis.

Those that also thrive and are winners are all the customers who now have an idea of how to get their shirts printed with some unconventional reunion slogans and/or how and where to have their own creative one-liners come to life on a t-shirt. To everyone involved in reunion season, keep on laughing! kid laughingkid laughing 2
