IColor Transfer Printer FAQ



What’s so unique about the IColor line of Digital Color + White Transfer Media Printers?

The IColor 500/540/550/600 Transfer Media Printers offer several unique advantages:

  • The ability to print white as an underprint AND an overprint in the same machine, in one pass, using the IColor TransferRIP or ProRIP software.
  • The white opacity of UniNet’s unique blend of toner is double that of any other brand, giving you the brightest whites and solid background to bring out the vibrancy of your colors.
  • The true black cartridge is included with the printer, allowing you to switch to CMYK mode to print items such as brochures and menus when white is not needed.
  • Optional dye sublimation, fluorescent, security and clear toner cartridge kits.
  • Lowest cost and most flexible machine available.
  • No maintenance associated with ink based machine is necessary, the IColor transfer series are all toner based systems.
  • Large array of media available for virtually any project.
  • Easily swap back and forth between regular and specialty cartridges, eliminating the need to purchase separate machines to accomplish each function.

What are the differences between the IColor 540/550 and 600?

The IColor 540/550 has a maximum paper width of 8.5” and the IColor 600 has a maximum paper width of 11.6” for tabloid printing. Otherwise, the machines share all of the same great features and benefits. If you are printing the occasional oversized image, consider the IColor SmartCUT software which allows you to split larger graphics and designs in such a way, that the final assembly onto the substrate is seamless.

What is the difference between the IColor 540 and 550?

Designed for the 220v market, the IColor 540 has all the same great features as the IColor 550, except the 540 does not have a 4.3” touch screen and only accommodates standard yield cartridges (3,000 page yield vs. 7,000 page yield).

Tell me more about the IColor SmartCUT software?

SmartCUT is a cross platform, user centric tool that is a key component to expanding the size constraints of popular print methods, especially as it relates to transfer printing commonly associated with garment decoration. This ground breaking application turns your letter/A4 sized printer into a tabloid ‘plus’ capable machine, allowing for the splitting and splicing of one graphic across two or more printed transfer sheets.

Use any oversized graphic, and the software will split it in half along the most logical path. You can choose to have it split along dark or light areas, depending on the color garment you will be pressing onto. With this software, you can make 3XL shirts that are not possible with even the most expensive of printing systems because you can gang up as many transfer sheets as you want.

What is ‘A’ and ‘B’ Configuration?

The IColor 500 and 600 are both capable of printing white as an underprint and an overprint through the use of the IColor TransferRIP or ProRIP software. Within the software is a cartridge configuration setup, where the white cartridge can be placed either in the first slot of the printer or the last. 'A’ configuration (TransferRIP) or the Underprint Queue (ProRIP) is suitable for white underprinting and ‘right side reading’, where you would want white printed first and then color on top for clear or dark substrates. You could also use this configuration for regular CMYK printing for items such as brochures or banners on white paper stock if white is not needed. ‘B’ configuration (TransferRIP) or the Overprint Queue (ProRIP) would be used for white or clear overprinting for reverse print applications when printing any type of transfer (textiles or hard surfaces).

Why would I choose the IColor 600 over the IColor 540/550?

The IColor 550 and 600 share all the same great features and upgrade capabilities. The IColor 600 can handle tabloid / A3 sized paper, allowing you to print larger images for XXL shirts or other large fabrics. The IColor 600 is half the weight of competing models and is much more portable than any other wide format printer on the market today. If you will be printing a lot of oversized images, the 600 would be your best choice. If you are printing occasional oversized images, the 540/550 with SmartCUT would also work.

What kind of upgrades are available for the IColor 540/550 and 600?

Both machines have the ability to be upgraded to dye sublimation, fluorescent, security, and clear toner. Simply swap the cartridge(s) for the specialty cartridge(s) and you are ready to print.

Why would I want security toner?

UniNet security toner contains special RF fragments which can be read by a reader. Most commonly used as a yellow cartridge, simply print a portion of your image in yellow for increased security and authenticity. The resulting print can be read by a special reader to confirm authenticity. 

Why would I want clear toner?

UniNet clear toner is great for watermarking and adding a level protection to your printed items. Clear toner works just as white toner, where you can print it either as an underprint or overprint. It is also used in conjunction with the glitter adhesive media. Using white toner as an overprint will block out the glitter effect. Clear toner ensures a good bond between the transfer and adhesive media, but is transparent to clearly show the glitter. 

What is the IColor TransferRIP and ProRIP software and why would I want to use it?

Simply put, the IColor TransferRIP or ProRIP software is the magic behind one pass printing with white as an underprint or an overprint. The most important point of the IColor TransferRIP or ProRIP software is that it allows colors to be put down in layers. Regular printer drivers only concern themselves with what the eye sees on the top layer, the RIP allows you to separately control each layer, thus giving you the ability to control not only what you see, but what is behind that top layer (typically the white layer). The IColor TransferRIP or ProRIP gives you the unique ability to use one machine to print images with white as an underprint or an overprint. You can now print vibrant colors on clear or dark media regardless of the background to which it is applied, where the white is put down first and the colors afterwards. The IColor TransferRIP or ProRIP ‘Color Mapping’ feature also allows for ‘Reverse Printing’ when printing and transferring to garments where white is put down last. This is the only way to achieve white underprint and overprint in one pass, and you will not find another software and hardware combination on the market today that can do all of this. The software also allows for color manipulation and removal, rasterization, white opacity control, substrate color preview and advanced layout tools.

What is the warranty of each machine?

The IColor 350, 500, 540 and 550 have a limited warranty of one year for parts and labor. The IColor 600 has a 3 year warranty for parts and labor, a five year print head warranty and a one time fuser replacement. If required, machines must be sent back to your dealer for repair, onsite service is not included in the warranty.

What kind of transfer media does Uninet offer?

UniNet has done extensive testing and R&D to come up with a variety of transfer media and add ons to satisfy nearly any situation or job. Available in a variety of sizes, these papers allow you to express your creativity affordably. For use in the IColor 300, 500 and 600 series of transfer printers, as well as compatible brands.

What else can I print with these printers?

Because of the flexibility of cartridge mapping, you are able to print transfers as easily as regular everyday documents. With the white toner installed in ‘B’ or overprint mode, now you are printing in reverse with a white overprint for any type of transfer print. Print on a variety textile and hard surface transfer media, all 100% certified and qualified to work with our series of printers. Create custom garments, mugs, plaques, awards and much more.

Move the white to the other side of the machine – ‘A’ or underprint mode – and now you can print on clear or dark material with a white underprint. This is necessary to improve the brightness and clarity of your print. Try printing color on a black piece of paper using your regular color laser printer and you’ll see the difference! This is also helpful when printing on transparencies and window cling!

When white toner is not needed, swap with the included black cartridge to convert to CMYK mode for everyday prints such as brochures, documents, cards, stationary, signs, or emails and boarding passes, directly from your favorite program. 

What’s so unique about the IColor 350 Toner Based Dye Sublimation printer?

  • The IColor 350 offers the convenience of dye sublimation printing in a small footprint without the costly care associated with ink based systems.
  • No printer maintenance required: No clogging or printhead cleaning resulting from non-use like ink-based systems; toner-based systems do not have this maintenance issue
  • Provides superior durability – over 150 wash cycles
  • Toner-based dye sublimation delivers softer transfers for garment decoration
  • Ensures significantly extended yields and lower imaging costs
  • Features significantly faster print speeds: 20 pages per minute vs. 1 page per 2 minutes for ink (photo mode), suited for production level environments
  • Toner-based dye sublimation produces better pastels and gradients with a wider color gamut for vibrant and true-to-life color reproduction
  • Keep printing costs low by using regular copy paper instead of expensive dye sublimation media
  • Does not require special software
  • Much longer expiration date on toner; ink expires within one year
  • Included ICC color profile for the most accurate colors possible
