Default Advice on GO UNO laser printer and papers

Hi Everyone,
I am looking to expand the range of prints I can apply to my t shirts so I am thinking of buying a GO UNO Led printer so I can print designs on transfer paper and apply using my heat press. From what I am reading I need different paper of printing on light colour shirts or dark shirts and some printers dont print any white on the paper to transfer over to the shirt.

Can someone with experience explain to me if I can get a self weeding paper that will print white and will be able to be usd on both white shirts and black, I dont want to have to cut around any designs so I can press them, I see I can get the self weeding paper with the GO UNO printer as a starting package, any advise would be greatly appreciated, my head is going to exploe with all the different papers etc,

Also what is the difference between inkjet transfer paper and laser printer transfer paper design and quality wise,thanks
Seamus

Have you looked at the oki white ink printer ( transfer paper ).
I am thinking about investing in one but I have literally just come across the Roland versastudio.

I am not trying to discourage you. My advice is do your homework before committing. Do forum search using GO Uno printer as keywords. Weigh in Pros and Cons. Get samples, press and do wash test.

There are members reporting not getting support for the printer even from the vendor who sold the unit.

2 step Self Weeding Laser transfer has low opacity if there is no white toner under base. Opacity is even worse if pressed on cotton blend due to dye migration.

Here is a thread about GO UNO printer https://www.t-shirtforums.com/heat-pr...s/t176198.html. There are Pros and Cons. More Cons than Pros though. Again search the forum. I am sure you will find more feedback about the printer.

Stay away from single step self weeding transfer for light. Go with 2 step Imageclip Self Weeding transfer for light.

Thanks everyone , lots to think about there, lots of negative I have to say...its baffling how some people cant get it to work at all and some get it to work with no issues and then there the you tube videos of the guy using it flawlessly with really good looking prints! The inconsistancy is baffling to be honest!

Would anyone recommend a good cheaper option to the UNO? thanks Also am I better going with laser or inkjet printer?
