Making ready to press full colour transfers is quick and simple with a white toner printer. The decals can be applied to any colour and style of cars without cutting or weeding. Since they were first introduced a few years ago, white toner printers have completely revolutionised the customization industry.
Although they are increasingly popular for producing products like stickers, can coolers, placemats, ornaments, awards, and more, their primary use is as a T-shirt transfer printer.
And for the following reasons, they have been promoted as a fantastic substitute for direct-to-garment printers, sublimation, and even screen printing:
1. They require almost no maintenance, making ownership very simple.
2. Versatility entails the ability to create personalised apparel, promotional items, stickers, and more.
3. The printer itself cannot be operated due to its simplicity (though preparing artwork and making transfers is no easier than any digital printing method).
White Toner: Why Is It Important?
Ever since transfer printing was invented, there has been a problem: You can't get a good-looking print onto a dark T-shirt or solid goods. The colours look very dull when printed in CMYK (regular colour laser or inkjet) on a decal sticker.
It's similar to painting a wall that has already been painted black, red, or brown with a new colour. Unless you prime the wall first, yellow paint applied to a black wall will result in a dull orange colour rather than the vibrant yellow.
Because white toner cannot be used, sublimation transfers can only be used on 100% synthetic products made of light-colored (mostly white) materials. Which white toner printer should you pick now that there are so many options available?
Options For White Toner Printers
The printer's first choice is whether to add more white toner or switch it out for more black. Some of the white toner-containing colour-led (laser) printers began life as standard CMYK printers.
C = Cyan
M = Magenta
K = Black
Y = Yellow
You have the broadest colour spectrum with that combination. When you look at anything that has been printed in full colour, you are used to seeing it.
The majority of white toner printers now use white toner instead of black. So you purchase a CMYW printer as opposed to a CMYK printer.
W = White
Since black toner is absent from CMYK printers, composite black is created by mixing the other three colours. If you know how to use it, composite black looks great and is ideal for the majority of designs, particularly for personalised sticker applications.
