Sihl LLC has announced the addition of three new media for printing and transferring inkjet images to fabric and t-shirts. Two of the new products, Sihl 4583 and 4578 are compatible with both aqueous and solvent inkjet printers. The third, Sihl 3197 - Solvent Print Fabric Transfer, is an ultra thin transfer media designed to provide a soft hand and long-lasting bright colors when printed on solvent inkjet printers. All three products can be imaged using standard OEM inks. Once printed, T-PrintzTM can be kiss cut, weeded, and taped with application tape to produce professional "one-off" or limited edition custom t-shirts.
Sihl T-Printz 4583 Universal Light Fabric Transfer is a universal solvent and aqueous inkjet printer compatible product designed to be applied to light colored or white fabrics where the fabric color is desired to show through. Sihl 4583 is reverse printed and then applied to the fabric using a heat press or a home iron. Universal Light Fabric Transfer can also be applied to various substrates for creating packaging mock-ups.
Sihl T-Printz 4578 Universal Dark Fabric Transfer is a universal solvent and aqueous inkjet printer compatible product designed to be applied to black or dark colored fabrics. Universal Dark Fabric Transfer will deliver brilliant colors on a white background completely blocking the fabric color.
Sihl T-Printz 3197 Solvent Fabric Transfer is an ultra-thin and ultra-durable product designed to be printed with solvent inkjet printers only. When transferred to a shirt, Sihl 3197 will provide an extremely soft hand and bright, brilliant colors. The white coating layer completely blocks out fabric color to achieve white on dark and black fabrics. The product contains no optical brightener therefore reducing print color shifting over time. At 1.9 mils thick, Sihl 3197 hardly changes the "hand" or feel of the fabric.
Sihl T-Printz 4583, 4578 and 3197 are available in the following sizes:
Sihl 4583 ? 24-inch, 36-inch and 50-inch by 50 foot rolls on a 2-inch core.
Sihl 4578 ? 24-inch, 36-inch and 50-inch by 50 foot rolls on a 2-inch core.
