iColor® Premium 2 Step Transfer Media

Available in A3 and A4 Sizes

The iColor® Premium 2 Step Transfer Media set allows you to transfer prints from the iColor® series of printers (including fluorescent white and fluorescent color prints) onto a variety of garments, especially dark fabrics.

Rated at 100 wash cycles, iColor® Premium 2 Step Transfer Media works at a lower temperature of 250°F / 120°C and a shorter press duration compared to other papers, which means you can print and press onto cotton as well as many types of synthetic material such as nylon, polyester and poly-cotton blends without the risk of scorching or melting the fabric.

iColor® Premium 2 Step Transfer Media is a weed-free system, enabling you to produce detailed, quality images while dramatically reducing your production time. Rasterization and breathability integrated into your design, as well as using the garment color as a mask, will enhance the stretch limit and softness of your finished product.
