MESA is proud to introduce two new printers to their product line : The uPrint Express Laser Transfer Printer and the uPrint Elite Laser Transfer Printer.
While many transfer printers use cyan, magenta, and yellow toners, the uPrint also features white toner, allowing vivid transfers to be applied to dark garments. The results are stunningly vibrant color prints that stand out when applied to dark garments. By using different uPrint transfer papers, designs can also be applied to hard surfaces, offering a versatility not found in direct-to-garment printers.
The uPrint line of laser transfer printers does not require weeding (removing spaces in the design) before transferring to garments. Just print and press.
The Express and Elite models offer high-volume capabilities with very low start-up costs and easy maintenance requirements. Thousands of transfers can be printed before the printer will need its first scheduled maintenance.
The uPrint Express offers the lowest start-up cost and can print designs up to 8-1/2 x 11 inches and prints an average of 16 pages per minute at resolutions up to 1200 dpi.
The uPrint Elite also prints at resolutions up to 1200 dpi, but can print designs up to 11-1/2 x 16-1/2 inches in size, and averages about 22 pages per minute.
At 22 pages per minute, the Elite could easily print over 1,000 designs per hour. Allow 45 seconds for heat-pressing designs to light garments, yielding up to 80 shirts printed and heat-set per hour. Dark garments will require additional heat-setting time, reducing yield.
