iColor® 500 Overview
UniNet presents the revolutionary iColor® 500 Digital Color + White Transfer Media Printer, featuring full color combined with white overprint and underprint capabilities. A unique and low cost digital technology for short to mid run garments, labels, stationary, banners and much more!
The iColor® 500 printer features LED technology and low temperature fusing. This allows for the use of a variety of media and papers. Traditional laser printers run too hot for sensitive material such as plastic, PET and clear media.
Add the iColor® TransferRIP software for white overprint and underprint functionality, as well as color changes, image manipulation, rasterization, cost calculation and more!
The iColor® TransferRIP software allows the user to manipulate the white layer behind the graphic for printing on dark or transparent media where white is needed as a background color. Multiple cartridge configurations are available to easily adjust for reverse printing, where white is needed as a top color for apparel. No need to create additional graphics with different color configurations – the software does it all – and in one pass! Enhance the brilliance of any graphic with white behind color!

Apply to both light and dark fabrics when combined with our premium heat transfer paper.
Make signs, menus, labels, invitations, envelopes, etc. with vivid colors, bright fluorescent whites, glowing fluorescent colors, and true blacks. Add our optional iColor TransferRIP software to print fluorescent white behind color in one pass.
The iColor® 500 Digital Color + White Transfer Media Printer Printer comes complete with 4-5 toner and drum cartridges for full color and black printing (CMYK), as well as our exclusive fluorescent white printing kit (toner and drum combination). Quickly swap the black for white when you want to add white effects. Black can then be produced using composite black (made from CMY), or if true black and white is needed at the same time, just pass the print though the printer a second time. Our registration system will ensure the prints are lined up perfectly. Use the optional Transfer RIP software for one pass printing with white overprint and underprint capabilities.
