How to print with White Toner on large Shirts
Installing the Ghost Black Toner + A-Foil
First the Ghost Black Toner is placed in an A3 compatible laser printer. Then place the A-Foil A3 in the multi-purpose tray.
Attention: If there is no black in the design, this step can be skipped.
Settings & printing part l
Print the colored motif first. Choose the settings “foil” or “transparency” for optimal fixation and always remember to print mirrored!
Using Ghost White Toner
Now it is time to replace the Black Toner with the Ghost White Toner.
The printer then initialises itself briefly and is then ready to start.
Printing Part ll
Now print the second part of your file in 100% black so that the design is printed in pure White behind it and fills the missing areas.
A & B Transfer
Now heat up your transfer press to 160 degrees. Fold the printed A-foil with the white side of the B-paper and place the duo on the press.
For protection, a few sheets of copy paper or Matt Finish Paper should be placed over it.
Then press for 2 minutes at 160 degrees.
After the 2 minutes, open the press and pull the B-Paper directly from the A-Foil evenly and separate it. Do this procedure in any case on the hot press to achieve an optimal result.
Pressing on a dark shirt
The finished transferred motif can now be placed on the dark textile. Cut off the foil at the edge to remove the adhesive residues.
Press for 30 seconds at 160 degrees.
Cool down & peeling
The textile and the foil must be completely cooled down. Now the foil can be removed carefully.
Last steps & result
For a better durability and the special effect, the textile has to go under the transfer press again for about 10 seconds. Always use the Matt Finish Paper.
Your textile is ready with extra large print in A3!
