I’ve already announced a bit on Twitter and the such like, but I’m so excited to show you all the new equipment that arrived last week which allows so many amazing printing and personalisation opportunities.
Woo hoo! This has been in the pipeline for a couple of months now and it is finally a wonderful reality, meaning that I can now offer personalised mugs, t-shirts, hoodies and flip flops to name but a few, pretty much anything that can withstand heat (as it is applied with a heat press) can be printed on! I can’t wait to try acrylic and slate!
All the magic has come from an OKI innovation (they make printers) in that they have developed a printer with white toner, which to most people would not sound all that exciting but to me, well I was jumping around like it was Christmas morning and I was off to Disneyland.
Here it is the OKI C711WT (they know how to come up with a catchy title don’t they) but in reality this machine is magic (and a bit of a beast – which I can attest for having had to help the guy who arrived on his own to just me and my weakness and having to bring it up 4 flights of stairs – tired does not begin to cover it! Followed by the Heat Press which weigh 70kg that came off last – with a stop off at every landing along the way cause I am just not fit enough for such things – but the main thing is WE MADE IT!)
I’ve already made several mugs, t-shirts and mouse mats and the results are just amazing – I’m so impressed with everyone at The Magic Touch (which is where we bought the equipment from), their customer service is just second to none and they can’t do enough to help you!
So now to showcase just what this little wonder can do:
I can’t wait to try many more different surfaces and see what different effects they can give. I’ve also put these items up in the Etsy Shop already if anyone would be interested in having some awesome personalised goodies!
What would you have personalised if you could?
