iColor® 2-Step Premium Transfer Media is used as a set, comprising of a ‘Transfer Sheet’ and an ‘Adhesive Sheet’ and will allow 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. The white adhesive applied as a result of the 2-step process enhances the color of your print, and increases the adhesion to your garment for maximum durability, opacity and vibrancy on your finished product. iColor® 2-Step Premium Transfer Media has the softest hand and brightest overprint compared to any other transfer paper, which means your images will look the same on your garment as it does on your computer screen.
