hi , i've been using image clip light it seems to have pressed ok , and the colours are a lot brighter than standard inkjet transfers ,
i'm completely new to laser printers , i purchased a basic oki c511dn colour printer , i had one big problem for a week everytime i printed an image clip transfer it jammed to the fuser which ended with me asking oki for a new fuser which they kindly sent to me , i installed the new fuser thinking that the other one was faulty , but it did exactly the same with the replacement fuser ,i then cleaned the previous fuser and put it back it in and the 980 error code had gone !
so i tried the image clip again using all the correct paper weight settings and the multipurpose tray and still it jammed !
i then decided to turn the green flashing power saver button off
and to my amazement the next image clip i printed was perfect, so all my problems was being caused by the power saver mode which was keeping the fuser to cold !
It's the opposite of what i thought it was ,i.e . the fuser being to hot
makes you feel like a real f#uckwit when all i had to do was press a button:eek:

Well done for sorting it out!
If you have been brought up on screen printing, then laser transfers will never get near the same sort of quality you are used to and washing will not last anything like screen print. But for short term promotional wear then Laser is a lot more versatile and far less expensive than screen print.

thanks , i've just started doing this as kind of hobby and if i can make a bit of extra money then it's an added extra :), you're right laser transfers won't be as durable as screen printing in plastisol ,but it 's a lot less complicated and cheaper all round , i'm going to do some t-shirts for a social group i'm involved with .
