AW Specialty Papers has announced the availability of three new heat transfer papers designed for commercial heat press applications. The new papers, IMAGE CLIP Koncert T's, IMAGE CLIP Laser Dark, and 3G Jet-Opaque are for application of printing onto dark-colored substrates. The IMAGE CLIP series is for use with laser printers or copiers, and the 3G Jet-Opaque is for use with inkjet printers.
IMAGE CLIP Koncert T's heat transfer papers are designed for the heat transfer of white letters and images to pastel, dark and bright colored substrates using laser copiers or laser printers. This product is self-weeding (no trimming required) and leaves no background plastic polymer. White letters and images can be transferred to a variety of substrates including T-shirts, handbags, mouse pads, coasters, leather articles, art papers and more. It works well with 100 percent cotton, 50-50 blends or synthetic fabrics such as polyester. Application with a commercial heat press requires only TWO steps. This is a cold-peel application and can be used to replace the use of white vinyl lettering on work or team wear, to promote event schedules or even recipes and sayings.
IMAGE CLIP Laser Dark heat transfer papers are designed for the heat transfer of full color images using color laser copiers or printers to dark and bright colored substrates. This product is also self-weeding (no trimming required) and leaves no background plastic polymer. High-resolution photographs and images can be transferred to dark or bright colored substrates including T-shirts, handbags, mouse pads, coasters, leather articles, art papers and more. It works well with 100 percent cotton, 50-50 blends or synthetic fabrics such as polyester or nylon. Application with a commercial heat press requires only TWO steps. It is cold-peel applied and can be used to capture the more profitable and high-end art demand for dark apparel.
3G Jet-Opaque heat transfer papers are designed for transferring inkjet images to dark or other colored garments and substrates. This product contains an opaque layer to hide the color of the substrate, allowing for photo-quality transfers. It has the same qualities as Jet-Opaque II but with a softer hand and better drape with the fabric. It is suitable for 100 percent cotton, 100 percent polyester and poly-cotton blend and synthetic fabrics. This product may be used to apply images to T-shirts, sweatshirts, mouse pads, puzzles, leather goods and other hard surfaces. Best results are achieved using a commercial heat press. Drying time is fast and ink feathering is minimal. This cold peel application produces excellent stretchability.
"We are very excited to bring this new line of Neenah products to the market. Our customers are always looking for products that are affordable AND produce great results. With this new and improved line of products for dark substrates, they get both," said Bill Rossi, president, AW Specialty Papers.
