Forever Transfer Paper Can Add a Great Benefit to Your BusinessAmaya Sales UK
If you are a garment decorator, the chances are that you have embroidery machines, direct to garment printers, vinyl heat transfer and maybe screen printing. If you are not doing transfer printing, then you are probably missing out on extra revenue and wider flexibility.
A major benefit of transfer printing is its ability to be applied to most fabrics and substrates. You can use the Transfer paper to print onto cotton, polyester, glass, wood, metal, leather, candles, plastic and so much more. You will not have to turn away any job that a customer offers you. You will also be able to offer your customers the best solution for their order.
Let’s take you through the printing options that transfer paper will give you.
Printing Full Colour onto black or coloured garments.
This will require the use of a white toner printer such as an OKI PRO 8423WT or OKI PRO 9541WT The Oki Pro9541WT is the Pro machine and gives you more options if you want to print onto card and heavier paper as well as specialised print and giving you an A3XL print area. OKI White Toner Printers | Amaya Sales UK (amayauk.com) These printers will allow you to lay down a white ink base and give you a vibrant colour design. Of course, if you have a DTG printer and are printing onto cotton, you may prefer to use that. If you are printing on to light or dark Polyester then the transfer paper method will do the job perfectly.
Use Forever Laser Dark No-Cut Transfer paper for the perfect combination with OKI white toner printers. Forever Laser Transfer Paper | Amaya Sales UK (amayauk.com)
Printing single colour onto any colour of fabric or garment

Printing onto white shirts
There are several types of Forever transfer paper available for printing onto white or pale coloured shirts. These are all one paper systems, and range from basic to high-end production. The basic products are ideal for printing full colour onto shirts, mouse mats caps etc. The high-end papers for printing on white, offer intricate printing with no weeding and no background around the image.

Once you have pressed your A and B papers onto your garment, you can then apply the metallic foil of choice and heat press again. The Foil will only stick where the Laser Dark No Cut is.
