How White Toner Transfer works?
What is White Toner Transfer
White Toner Transfer is a very versatile way to create customized products such as T-Shirts, Workwear, Mugs, Bottles, Signs and more. With Toner Transfer the design or motif is printed with a laser printer on a sensitve coated media often called the A-Sheet or Transfer Sheet.
Laser printers use Toner which is an electromagnetic powder to create the image. Because of the characteristics of Toner it can be used in heat activated transfer.
After printing, a so called B-Sheet or Glue-Sheet is married to the A-Sheet using a heat transfer press. By heat and pressure a chemical reaction between the glue/adhesive on the B-Sheet and the Toner powder on the A-Sheet transfers the adhesive to the print.
This technology is commonly used to produce small to medium runs of T-Shirts, textiles and promotional Items. Read how Ghost White Toner Transfer work below.
Print a mirror image of your design
For White Toner Transfer you will print a mirror image of your design on the A-Foil, on the side with the matte finish. If you want to transfer a colored and white design, you have to print it in two steps. Firstly, insert the black toner cartridge and print all colored areas of your design. Secondly, insert the Ghost White Toner cartridge, resinsert the printed A-Foil and print all white areas of your design.
Connect and separate A foil and B paper
Having printed your design on the A-Foil, connect the A-Foil to the B-Paper using the heat transfer press. Preheat the press to approx. 160° C (320 ° F).
Place the A-Foil on the base plate of the press with the printed side facing upwards. Cover it with the B-Paper, coated side facing downwards. Place a few sheets of copy paper on top of the B-Paper and initiate the pressing procedure. Press the A-Foil and the B-Paper together for approx. 2 minutes.
Separate the B-Paper from the A-Foil directly after the pressing procedure. They must be separated without lifting them from the heated base plate to ensure a complete transfer of the adhesive. Note that once the papers have cooled down too much they cannot be neatly separated from each other.
Transfer your design to fabrics etc.
Place a piece of fabric or other material of your choice on the base plate.
Position the A-Foil with your design, print facing downwards, on the fabric and cover it with a Matt Finish Paper. Press it together at 160° C (320 ° F) for approx. 30 seconds.
Finishing and fixing of the toner
Let the fabric cool down completely before removing the A-Foil.
After removing the A-Foil, place a sheet of Matt or Glossy Finish Paper on the fabric and press it again for 15 seconds. Thus, you fix the print to the fabric, make it resistant to washing and give it a matte finish.

Toner transfer on textiles, hard surfaces and more
With Toner Transfer you can print on many different materials such as textiles, hard surfaces and other materials. To do this, you print your designs on transfer paper and transfer them to your blank on the transfer press. Toner transfer is often used to make small runs of personalized T-shirts, mugs, bottles, custom workwear or merchandise items such as bags and gifts. Compared to other technologies, toner transfer does not require investment in special equipment. You can easily print your designs with the laser printer. With the help of self-weeding transfer papers, the print can then be quickly and cleanly transferred to the desired product.
T-shirt printing with no-weeding and no-cutting
Technologies such as flex films or vinyl transfer films require complex cutting out and weeding of the motifs before they can be transferred to the textile. Multicoloured motifs are often only possible in several work steps. With toner transfer, these steps are no longer necessary. You can simply print your motives on a transfer foil and then connect them on the transfer press with a B-Paper. During this process, your design is automatically weeded. The B-paper contains an adhesive that will later bond your design to the textile. This adhesive is activated under pressure and heat only where your printed image is. This way, only the print is transferred to your product. Now you can simply transfer your design to the desired surface.
Print on dark surfaces thanks to white toner transfer
With the Ghost White Toner, a white toner cartridge for laser printers it is now also possible to transfer to dark surfaces. Normally white ink is not printable on conventional laser printers because the printers are equipped with black, cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges only. For example, if you want to create a black page with a white text, the entire printing area is filled with black and the white area on the paper is left blank. This leads to high printing costs. It would be easier to print white directly on a coloured (black) paper. The same problem exists in toner transfer. Since white is not available as printing ink, motifs cannot be transferred to dark textiles. The colour rendering would be distorted by the dark background of the textile. Ghost White Toner solves this problem. You can print white with a Ghost White toner cartridge for your laser printer. Just put the Ghost White toner in your laser printer instead of the black toner cartridge. Now everything that is displayed on the screen in black is printed in white. So you can print on dark and colored papers with white and use any paper suitable for your printer. You can also transfer the white print with toner transfer to dark textiles and other materials. You can now also transfer colored designs to dark textiles by using Ghost White Toner to print a white background over your design. This ensures that the colours are displayed correctly even on dark backgrounds.
