Digitally print on garments without pretreating.

This just in from RhinoTech with regard to a question on whether or not cotton garments needed to be pretreated before digitally heat transferring a design using SingleJet™ Heat Transfer Paper (for use with inkjet printers, especially the recommended Epson 1430).

The answer is, no, PRETREATING IS NOT REQUIRED before transferring a design (unlike when using a DTG system). Using SingleJet II™ (the newest generation) offers an easy process resulting in designs with bright color when printed on white and light color fabrics. You can also print a photo, flat color design text, block graphics or spot colors. Use SingleJet Opaque™ when transferring images to DARK garments and fabric. Color and white will be vivid. Add textile metallic foil and rhinestones so that apparel will have added bling appeal for the customer and increased value for the business owner.

Jimi Hendrix!

Epic. Legendary. Larger-than-life.

Wearing his favorite military jacket purchased in London.

His Star Spangled Banner still rocks our 4th.  And his image endures with screen printed designs by Slingshot T-Shirts.

Have a happy, safe celebration.

The ASPT is dedicating its Student Printing Competition to Tom Frecska.

Tom was an especially ardent supporter of educating young people in the important art of screen and graphics printing, so the renamed award is a poignant and apt tribute.
