Digital print to heat transfer paper to flawlessly print detailed images and text

Digital printing onto heat transfer paper has been a long and arduous process- until now. Xtrans by Inkcups provides the most innovative, cost effective and quickest way of creating digital heat transfers for print on materials such as cotton, polyester, cotton-poly blends and nylon. The “old” process consists of printing an image, applying white heat transfer paper to the back, weeding and cutting the image and then applying the image to a piece of material via heat. The Inkcups way takes control of your production, reduces lead time, produces vivid multi-colored images in house and makes your customer more happy and profitable all at the same time. Just simply print, powder and press!

1. No weeding or cutting: skip laying out your image and individually cutting out those tiny areas that are not supposed to be white. Xtrans prints directly onto heat transfer paper. Once the image has been printed, the paper is dipped into powder and is ready for heating!

2. Flawlessly print floating text and graphics: create stellar outcomes without a haloing effect. Print intricate designs and font as small as 5 point.

3. Print in full CMYKWA: bright white and color print in a single pass.

4. Print on hard or soft materials: this 2 in 1 machine allows you to print on both hard and soft materials without running through a changeover process or changing out inks.

5. Control image color and proofing in house: not sure if your image is going to come out the way you want it to? Print as many or as little proofs as you’d like. And the best part? You won’t have to wait weeks or even days to approve your design. Additionally, each image can be edited to your specifications without a minimum order.
