Your HP might work. I had asked the same question a couple of years ago and the answer comes down to temperature. The HP does its thing at a little too high of a temperature whereas the Oki--and others--do it at a lower temperature that is more compatible with laser transfers.

Takis, We do not recommend the transfer papers for HP as some run too hot. A Canon or Oki would be a better choice.

There is a misconception that some HP printer have too hot fuser for Laser transfer. Now a days the laser transfers for light and dark need the printer to be slowed down on Print paper to get the fuser to fuse the toner properly on the thick heat transfer media. Otherwise if the temp is not hot to fuse the toner the toner will get sticky which cause the toner to stick to fuser roller and therefore jam and wrap around the roller.

I was told that Brother laser printer fuser is too hot for Laser transfer. However, my experience with using Okidata color laser I had to slow down the print speed to fuse the toner. Being a stubborn person I went ahead and bought one anyway for less than $300.00. Sure enough I had to slow the print speed down to make it work. I had no problem ever since.

Now about your HP printer. GhostWhite website has a long list HP laser printers that are compatible with their white toner.

I posted links in this thread that list Up printer models. The website default language is German. Select EN to translate it to english. Look for the model of your printer in the list.

You can try your printer on laser light transfer. I highly recommend 2 step Self Weeding Imageclip Laser light. Use very thick or ultra heavy media setting to slow down the print speed. You can also try laser transfer for dark but you it will be able to transfer white of the artwork. You need white toner for that. Buy sample quantity. Now You have to be willing to take a risk. The only way to find out is to try it.

I found your model in their website. Click their search window then type your model. They have white toner kit for the model.
