Question about Ricoh Aficio SP C410DN Laser Printer

Choosing a paper type

I am trying to print an image onto transfer paper (for t shirts) and don't know what kind of paper type to choose. I've tried thick and coated, but neither have worked. since this transfer paper is expensive, I don't want to use them all up through trial & error printing tactics.

Can I copy these transfers on this printer or do I have to use an inkjet?

    I tried a couple different settings, but because the special coating on on the transfer paper can be melted on a laser printer...well, it wasn't pretty!

    Luckily, I had an old inkjet at home and it worked fine. These transfers are almost obsolete now, given that inkjet printers are almost obsolete. Hopefully, Avery (the company that makes these transfers) knows this and is working on some laser transfer paper.

    Thanks for the input, though. It's nice to know I can post a question and get some help!!!

    (note: the transfers also must be ironed onto t-shirts with a NON-steam iron...something else that is obsolete!)

Un fortunately it is often a trial and error thing. I would try all "special settings", even cardstock ect.

How to select mirror image or reverse image on printer to print t-shirt transfer


When you go to print, select your Lexmark 5200 Series printer, then click (Printing) Properties to open the Lexmark control panel.

Click the third tab on the left, marked Print Layout, then choose the Mirror radio button (see picture).

Click OK to apply the setting.

Note: if your printing program has a setting for t-shirt transfers, it may automatically reverse the image. Use only the setting in the program or in the printer- if you use both, the settings will cancel each other out.

What is the best way to get a simple graphic for a t-shirt. The graphic would say something like "Ask Me" to get people conversing with the person wearing the shirt.


Use mspaint, clip art, photshop to create your own, or go to google images to find the appropriate image.

Companies like HP, Canon Xerox etc are now making print paper that is transferable to a t-shirt.

so once you have your image go to your local office supply store (officeworks.com.au for Australia) and buy the product.

http://www.officeworks.com.au/retail/products/Office-Supplies/Paper/Specialty-and-Presentation-Papers/Photo-Paper/TEC6065A

This gives the model no etc so you can find it in your country or order from hp.com directly.

Then get a t-shirt and iron the image / letter directly onto the t-shirt.

Good luck.

Printing letters from the computer to a iron on


You don't. Once you have completed your design including the text as it should read when the T Shirt is finished you go to print the design. When the printer dialogue appears then you Click Preferences, Properties, Options, or Setup (depending on the program or operating system) then choose the paper type as the T-Shirt Transfer option if you have one setup so that the print image will automatically be reversed when printed, or you choose an option to flip the image horizontally, or print reverse.

How print iron on transfers


Yes, you need to "MIRROR" the image. Go to printer properties and select the ADVANCED TAB. Click on the MIRROR setting then print onto the transfer paper. The image should print out backwards like you are looking at it in a mirror. When you iron it onto a shirt, it will come out correct.

Can the Canon MX310 print on transparencies?


Manual does not mention Transparencies.
Manual states that It will print T-shirt transfers:

T-Shirt Transfers TR-301
This paper is used to create iron-on transfers. The image is printed inverted.
Paper Support Load Limit: 1 sheet
Paper Output Tray Load Limit:
We recommend that you remove the previously printed sheet from the Paper Output Tray before continuously printing to avoid blurs and discoloration.
Paper Thickness Lever: Right
Media Type:
Printer Driver Setting: T-Shirt Transfers

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Printing dark tshirt transfers - can't override the flipped image


Hello I think I can help you. I Would not use T shirt transfer when you make up your print I would select poster print or any other form that does not automatically reverse the image. The reason your software is designed to do this is on the regular transfer paper your laying the image down on the shirt, so for it to come out right it has to be reversed. With the dark T shirt transfer paper your peeling off the backing and putting the image face up on the T Shirt.

by uesing a special software.

The mfc cant print any mirrow images by itself.

But why do you need to print a mirrow? as far as I remember is the print straight right thru. The foil has to be turned onto the shirt before you run the iron?!!!
