1 Step Self Weeding Color Laser Heat Transfer Paper

Here’s a video about a new product made by RhinoTech. I really wish I had a digital thermostat on my heat press because I think it would have helped me out a little in working with this paper but overall I liked the results very much. It’s nice to be able to do a self weeding process in one step rather than having to do the adhesive sheet at a different temperature and the pressing at a higher temperature like most 2 part self weeding heat transfer papers. Now what I want to do hopefully over the weekend is wash some test shirts I did and do a comparison write up for the blog. I think that would be nice to see. Maybe I can do a picture of before and after.

The new video is called, “1 Step Self Weeding Color Laser Heat Transfer Paper.” This is an educational screen printing video is about RhinoTech’s new Singlestep self weeding color laser heat transfer paper. In this video we take a quick look at how the paper works and what it is like to work with it. For this color laser transfer paper we need a very good working laser printer and RhinoTech recommends a Go Uno machine. You’ll get to see the transfer paper being pressed to the shirt and a close up shot of the transfer after peeling. You’ll learn about what factors are critical when working with this paper as well as where to buy it and how to get a discount on it. In the video you will also see how the self weeding color laser transfer paper works as we examine the transfer closer up. You can do free standing text and other graphics that would normally look horrible with the polymer adhesive in between the image parts. It’s a pretty cool paper with a lot of potential and worth investigating to see if it’s right for you.

  1. Thanks for product review, Jonathan, and the fun fact that good equipment produces great products; that there is value to complementing a screen printing shop with a one step heat press system for short run and specialty items.

    • It’s my pleasure. That was a fun video to make. Instant gratification on multi color work with digital heat transfers can be a valuable tool for any screen printer. It enables us to take those very small orders for complex designs we otherwise would have to pass on.

      I’m working on the follow up video about the washing durability right now. Everyone will be happy to hear how well this transfer held up under laundering. It was a most pleasant surprise.

  2. Reblogged this on screengraphicsimagingnews and commented:
    An addendum: SingleStep™ is rapidly becoming the most requested heat transfer laser paper due to its natural self-weeding capability that transfers the toner, not the background film; for the fact that a final design appears as if it were screen-printed onto the fabric. And it uses a one sheet process to print on white and light colored t-shirts, hats and other products. To decorate DARK fabrics, SingleStep™ can be used with Textile Metallic Foil to add texture;the color and design pop. This step offers immediate, value-added highlights.

    SingleStep ™ can be used on most color laser copiers or color laser printers (both the older low temperature color laser copiers/printers that use fuser oil and the newer high temperature color laser copiers/printers that do not use fuser oil). It will not work on ink jet printers.

    RhinoTech will demonstrate SingleStep ™ at ISS/Long Beach, Jan. 18-20, 2013 on Booth 255. Jonathan Monoco of Catspit Productions will be available to share his experiences with this product and other RhinoTech products/equipment.
