Default laser printer heat transfer paper and ink

Hi all,

I just picked up a Okidata C610N laser printer.

3 Questions for you experts out there:

1) Can you make any recommendations on the type of transfer paper to use? ie, what manufacturer have you had the best experience with?

2) Where is a good place to buy the transfer paper?

3) What ink would you recommend for use in this printer and where is a good place to buy it?


Thanks very much!

I'm sure it is simply a rebranded paper but, by far, the best I've found is the sun angel paper sold by rhinotech (for darks). If purchased at 11x17 and then cut down, standard letter size prints are only about $2.60. It produces the brightest, longest lasting, softest hand that I've ever seen and marries and prints at only 260 degrees (f) which allows for easy printing on pretty much any fabric. It also is very forgiving during the marrying process...as easy to use as image clip but with much better results.

For darks, I've stopped using anything else.

Definitely the best on the market and I think I have tried "everything" else.

Not to be a downer, but everything I've tried up.to this point cracks after washing.

The best transfer for darks is using the Oki printer for printing white toner and an ink Jet sublimation printer for the color onto a two step paper.
It has a softer hand and reduces the cracking because it doesn,t have resins from the laser toner or pigments from regular ink.
We print onto one paper with the ink and another paper for the white toner. Then we marry the two papers together and press onto the dark cotton shirt.

Sure it cracks because of the resins in the toners. Reduce the toners by only using white toner with sublimation ink and you will be able to wash it without losing color and minimal cracking.
