The type of ink that you use is more important than which specific brand or type of printer that you use.
While some store-bought regular inks print OK heat transfers, all of them share one trait: none of them were actually made for heat transfers. They are all made just to produce nice documents and photographs, which will never be put in a washer.
This fact led us on our quest for superior T-shirt heat transfer ink for printing heat transfers. The following is about our T-shirt TransMagic!™ Inks; what they are and why we are confident you will love them.
The upside to being picky is that high quality gets you a lot of happy customers. The downside (a little bit anyway) is that you can spend a lot of time and money before you are totally satisfied. That was our story in developing our inks and delivery systems.
We lost count of the different inks we tested in developing our TransMagic!™ Inks brand. One ink would wash well but the color was off. Another had great color but it changed when heated. Another printed well but lost too much color in the wash. On and on.
Our TransMagic!™ Inks brand is the result of slightly over a year in testing, tweaking, fussing and occasionally pulling our hair out. We're glad that we did. We can proudly present our TransMagic!™ Inks as the equal of our well-known Alpha brand heat transfer papers.
