Customers want great color designs on their dark color garments, drinkware and other promotional items – and they want them at a good price. Unfortunately, low-cost sublimation technologies don’t work well on color garments and substrates. Solutions to deliver quality color onto items like black t-shirts and dark brown coffee mugs depended on expensive printers and transfer media.
Printers with white toner (also known as CMYW printers) have been introduced recently, but the prices have been many times the cost of sublimation printing solutions. It's too much of an investment for many small providers of smaller garment creation businesses and promotional product providers.
Now through the combination of a premium quality HP wireless color printer matched with white toner cartridges from Germany’s Ghost GmbH, the power of the premium CMYW printers is available at the price of sublimation!
Tip: When printing transfers, be sure to increase your toner saturation to the maximum levels for best results and pay close attention to each papers required media settings.
Color designs usually look good on white substrates like t-shirts or white coffee cups, but when you put the design on top of dark colored backgrounds, that color shows through and “deadens” the color of the design. Bright colors turn dull or contrasts in designs turn muddy or disappear.
The HP + Ghost White Toner printing solution uses white toner to create a high opacity white layer of “background” under the color design when it is transferred to the substrate. This preserves the power of the color in the original design.
Now you can sell custom printed promotional items on dark coffee cups, and drinkware – even transparent items! All with great color print that will satisfy your customer at a price they can afford.
In addition to customized garments and promotional items, you can also offer your customer items like business cards, counter cards and invitations with a unique look by printing white on colored or black stationaries, adding yet another unique service to your business at a price that your customers will find attractive and that your competitors won’t be able to match.
HP + Ghost White is a printing system that delivers the look of a premium product at a sublimation prices. This is a unique product that will bring you new business at the price of traditional sublimation. Take a look at the photos of work created with Ghost White – the results sell themselves!
Tip: When printing directly onto dark substrates, increase the toner saturation for brighter and more vibrant colors.
Tip: When printing on stationary, adjust for the correct media print settings.
