Printing on Black Cardstock with The Crio pro8432

Crio White Toner Printers are industry leading t-shirt transfer printers. The system has risen in popularity due to its toner-based system, meaning no maintenance, and its versatility. In fact, many claim the DigitalHeat FX System, consisting of a white toner printer, is a “business in a box”. This phrase has come to describe the system because it can decorate apparel, hard goods, non-wearable textiles, and also works as a standard printer for paper goods.

Paper items like invitations and menus are a great way to expand your business offerings. You can turn cheap cardstock into custom items for a variety of occasions. Birthdays, reunions, anniversaries, and weddings are just a few.
