Heat Transfer Printing onto Light and DARK garments.

Heat Transfer Printing onto Light and DARK garments.



hey everyone Chris from Rhino tech here got a little video we're gonna do today we're gonna be working with our Rhino dark and single step paper single step it's going to be four light garments and Rhino dark is for dark garments so today we have this black shirt and I wanted to put an image on the front and back side of this shirt so you may be asking well Houston single-step that's a light garment paper but you have a dark armature well why would you be using single stuff on a dark garment shirt well if you stay tuned I'll show you what you can do with single step in light garments hold on one sec here you go here it come alright magic is foil even though it's single step is for light garments doesn't mean that you can't put it on to a dark garment you know the single step will adhere to cotton or polyester or blend so obviously the shirt colored really doesn't matter they know the material still cotton or polyester so we're gonna end up putting a foil on top of it so that you're gonna be able to see that image so we're gonna do a test of transferring the single step showing you what it looks like without the foil and then of putting the foil on top of it to show you you know what you can do with the like iron paper under garments so let's get the process started we're gonna print some sheets off and then press them up your it back let's print this is gonna be really exciting ooh scary baths scary face all right we're back got everything printed got our little bet guy a scary face guy well let's get doing some transfers all right we're gonna take a single step and we're gonna do it on this black shirt single-step weedless transfer paper no need to trim this and do 330 degrees for 25 seconds yeah we're gonna give it about a 7 to 10 second pealed could be a little bit longer depending on your crust and as you see no toner left on the paper so now let's flip this over and we're gonna do the Rhino dark but first in order to do the Rhino dark it's a two-part system so we're gonna do the A & B sheet all right we're back now we're gonna work with the Rhino dark we have our little face guy here printed on the a sheet or image sheet of the Rhino dark and then the Rhino dark is a two paper system so you're gonna have a B sheet that you're going to heat press to the a sheet the sheet is going to more or less act as you know it helps with it adhesion to the garment and it also blocks your garment color from coming through your printer color let's get these two married up I always like preheating a bed of the heat press to start with because helps with the transferability of the two sheets if you have the bottom you know just as warm or at least warmer than room temperature compared to the top so just a few seconds doesn't take very long I like to use parchment paper just to make sure I didn't if I put something upside down and I'm not ruining my heat press bed and same with the top I always have the image sheet on the bottom and the transfer sheet on the top and with the Rhino dark we're gonna do 315 degrees with this heat press instructions are anywhere from 310 to 330 for a minute and a half there's gonna be a hot peel on this always roll it back upon itself never straight up in the air otherwise you can lose part of your image on that image sheet and there we go we now have the B sheet coding where the toner was has released to grabs us here to the image sheet and then the areas where the toner was not is still on this B sheet all right so when you do that you will have to trim this paper jet ever so slightly on the edges because some of the B sheet does transfer to just the edge of the paper do these do a quick trim around and we're gonna throw a shirt all right we're back we're ready to transfer these images to the garment we do have our Rhino dark with the little face guy we got the edges trimmed up to make sure these sheet coding doesn't transfer over to the garments we do have our original garment from runner in the video there's a little guy in there I'm not sure if you can see him but you'll see it a lot better once we apply that foil on there but we're going to go ahead and put the face guy in front of the shirt here so what we're gonna do to do the front back is we're just gonna lay down parchment paper or silicone paper onto the bed of the heat press lay the garment down and then go ahead and press it's not gonna hurt any of the images to be repressed let's get our parchment get her shirt lined up face guy and I'm aligned up as best as possible and this Rhino dark we're gonna do a same temperature for about 30 seconds and the same temperature was 315 degrees that we did a B shoot all right so the Rhino dark this is gonna be a cool peel so you're gonna want to sit off to the side for about 30 seconds to a minute at least just to make sure it's not warm to the touch so as we're doing now peel my silicon or first and paper out the back and nothing wrong with my little bat guy so what we're gonna do now is we're gonna go trim some foil up and get this ready to be foiled all right so we're back to figure I'd uh show you what it looks like when you're peeling the a sheet off of the Rhino dark off the garment what I like to do is I have to grab it and if possible I just roll it roll right off the garment that way you have no issues if your roll if you're taking it and you're pulling up good chance that's gonna come back off the garment but as you can see absolutely nothing left on there so now we have scary face bat will be back all right we're back we've got our face on the shirt bad on the back let's make this bat stand out with a little bit of foil all right so when you have the image on both sides you're gonna do repress another side like I said before make sure you have parchment paper so it'll come paper down so put that down shoot it over the top and foil hold on a sec I'm back sorry it took so long got my piece of foil right here make sure you cut up these big enough you take this oil and leave it plain or you can wrinkle it up to make it a little look a little distressed however you want to do it put the colored side up then once again I always like covering things with parchment and we're gonna press the spoil at 3:34 30 seconds go all right now with the foil this is gonna be you're gonna peel this cool so you're gonna wait another 30 seconds to a minute to peel this off instead of you know waiting that time you throw it aside and start your next project come back to it even if you leave it for a couple hours it's not going to be the end of the world all right we'll be back all this cools down all right we're back we're gonna take this foil off sometimes I like to take a little piece of cloth it's gonna rub it on the foil and tear everything adhered correctly wolof we now have a purple scary bat all right back again so we just got done putting the foil on to our bat so now even though it was done with a single step which is for light garments we did it on a dark garment put some foil on top of it and now we have nice little foil design and then we used our Arango dart to do the face on the front so whatever paper you want we have a solution whatever garment color you have we have a solution keep watching our videos Kirstin Rio tech take care

  1. Thanks for your question. We have used the 330 series and that model will work on white and dark garments with these papers. But.. if you're printing on dark garments with WHITE in the design, it will not work, because it's a CMYK printer; doesn't have white toner. The 711WT, however, has white toner in it. If you'd like to discuss or need more info, please call Chris at 651- 686 5027 x 4. Looking forward to working with you.
