Sihl Introduces Three Inkjet Transfer Materials
Sihl LLC, a global leader in the manufacturing and distribution of coated papers, films and specialty media for
digital imaging technologies, announces the addition of three new media for printing and transferring inkjet
images to fabric and t-shirts. Two of the new products, Sihl 4583 and 4578 are compatible with both aqueous
and solvent inkjet printers. The third, Sihl 3197 - Solvent Print Fabric Transfer, is an ultra thin transfer media
designed to provide a soft hand and long-lasting bright colors when printed on solvent inkjet printers. All three
products can be imaged using standard OEM inks. Once printed, T-PrintzTM can be kiss cut, weeded, and
taped with application tape to produce professional “one-off” or limited edition custom t-shirts.
Sihl T-PrintzTM 4583 Universal Light Fabric Transfer
This universal solvent and aqueous inkjet printer compatible product is designed to be applied to light colored
or white fabrics where the fabric color is desired to show through. Sihl 4583 is reverse printed and then applied
to the fabric using a heat press or a home iron. Universal Light Fabric Transfer can also be applied to various
substrates for creating packaging mock-ups.
Sihl T-PrintzTM 4578 Universal Dark Fabric Transfer
This universal solvent and aqueous inkjet printer compatible product is designed to be applied to black or dark
colored fabrics. Universal Dark Fabric Transfer will deliver brilliant colors on a white background completely
blocking the fabric color.
Sihl T-PrintzTM 3197 Solvent Fabric Transfer
This ultra-thin and ultra-durable product is designed to be printed with solvent inkjet printers only. When
transferred to a shirt, Sihl 3197 will provide an extremely soft hand and bright, brilliant colors. The white coating
layer completely blocks out fabric color to achieve white on dark and black fabrics. The product contains no
optical brightener therefore reducing print color shifting over time. At 1.9 mils thick, Sihl 3197 hardly changes
the “hand” or feel of the fabric.
Sihl T-PrintzTM 4583, 4578 and 3197 are available in the following sizes:
Sihl 4583 - 24", 36" and 50" x 50 ft. rolls on a 2" core.
Sihl 4578 - 24", 36" and 50" x 50 ft. rolls on a 2" core.
Sihl 3197 - 24" and 50" x 50 ft. rolls on a 3" core.
