Media Type

This product is for waterslide transfers that can be applied to DARK surfaces & substrates as the CLEAR media sheet is first printed with a WHITE layer for your artwork and then the COLOUR layer is printed over the top. This process is known as White Underprint, Underprinting White or simply 'Printing white underneath' :) 

If you are applying to white or light substrates or surfaces, please click here to order these transfers instead.

This means these transfers can be used on any colour substrate and you are no longer limited to application on lighter substrates :) 

It's a bit more of a process our end so they're more expensive than the normal waterslides we offer. You don't have to change your artwork in any way, just supply the png or other files type that supports transparency and we sort out the processing for the white our end.

Also note that this process is NOT required for white only graphics, this can use our standard waterslide printing process. 

It's difficult to photograph these examples, we've done our best, especially when it comes to the white layers :) 

Professional digital printed full-colour laser transfers for self application to heat sensitive materials and items that won't fit under a heat press. Our transfers are highly detailed laser printed with an A3 (11"x17") OKI Pro 8432WT Professional series printer. This listing is for a digital transfer print onto Forever Waterslide HT transfer media (CLEAR media only).

All our transfers are ready-to-apply, we don't need to add a border to your artwork. We have no minimum or quantity (MOQ) and prices are per sheet. You can gang as much as you like or whatever you like on a sheet.

    Great transfers

    I needed some really tiny transfers for models, while the dot resolution isn't as high as the original artwork, the outcome was still very good. The transfer material itself works very well. Much of my design was white and looks great. I would like a tinted backing paper though, so that the white transfers are easier to see on the sheet.

    Custom but disappointing

    I designed these simple white transfers myself, which supposedly came with a white under print, but about 50% of the transfer became invisible as soon as it contacted the water. I applied it and left to dry and was disappointed to see it had dried that way. Thankfully I had 4 printed, so overlaid a second transfer on each which meant the white was only about 10% translucent. Very disappointing considering I paid more for a product designed specifically for this use.

    Amazing service, super fast delivery

    We needed the transfers urgently for props we were making for a TV commercial shoot. Phoxy were super quick with responding to questions, gave helpful advice and fulfilled our order in a frankly impossibly short time. Highly recommended and the sort of customer service every company should aspire to!

    Best waterslides

    The waterslides are of excellent quality and the service was second to none. It was and will be a pleasure to deal with this company. From the Initial conversation with Phil through to the application of the waterslides was excellent.
    Thanks, I will be placing another order soon.
