Of course, you may have noticed that some of the t-shirt designs, that appear in this video, include white elements in the design. This is because we are working together with the OKI White Toner laser printers. And, just in case you may not be aware, these printers allow you to print the white parts of your designs.

This is a great advantage when choosing our white toner system over another. Your designs will simply pop out of your dark garments. While printing white designs or the white elements of your designs will help your stand out from the crowded t-shirt industry – there is some caution which you will need to take. You need to be careful with how your white toner designs are created.

If you create a design which appears on a white background and you then print this image with one of the white toner printers, then you will print the background. And this will create hard and stiff designs when they are pressed to the t-shirt. As well as cost you a tonne of extra toner and intern costs. This is something all business owners should be aware of. The downside to ignoring this, will only cost your business unnecessary losses.

We have several tutorials on the support sections of our website. And many more in the works. Please be sure to take a look, as there could be that one tutorial which changes your whole outlook or business goals. Learn more about how to remove the white background from your designs.
