What is Print Optimizer?

The DigitalHeat FX product line is the combination of a white toner printer, professional level heat press, special transfer paper (EZ Peel), and all the training you need to get started in the custom t-shirt business.

AND it includes Print Optimizer software that is specifically designed for our combination of those different products to ensure you get a great printed transfer and a happy customer.

Technically, Print Optimizer is a “RIP” Software. That stands for Raster Image Processor. It’s a software that’s designed to help you take an existing image and produce the best possible result as efficiently as possible for specific printers

The process goes like this:

Do you HAVE to use Print Optimizer?

The short answer is no. All of our DigitalHeat FX printers are based on a kind of laser/led full color printer.

But instead of the traditional 4 colors you, or any graphic artist, might be used to using, a white toner printer substitutes (in most cases) a WHITE toner cartridge for the black.

You can still print black, of course. It’s just a composite of the Cyan, Yellow and Magenta instead of having a separate cartridge.

The white toner is there specifically so you can create a t-shirt transfer that will go on ANY color and almost ANY fabric. If you didn’t have white toner and wanted to put a design on a black t-shirt it would just come out muddy.

Like painting a dark wall with a really light color, but not priming it first.

Print Optimizer was made to work with white toner, or a white “underbase”, while a standard graphics software is usually not.

So – if you print directly with a standard graphics software it’s just not likely to come nearly as good as if you use this RIP software.

Benefits to Using Print Optimizer for white toner printing

The software also saves you money. You can MAKE MORE on every shirt!

Spend Less on Toner

When you print a full-color custom t-shirt transfer with the DigitalHeat FX system and the OKI pro8432WT [Now branded the “Crio” 8432WTD white toner printer], the cost toner costs aren’t much – fractions of pennies sometimes.

However, it adds up over time. So we’ve included unique toner saving features in the Print Optimizer software.

And here’s the best news! Print Optimizer is now STANDARD.

These features are so important that we have decided to not sell the Digital HeatFX system without it!

You not only get the white toner printer, the professional heat press, the Laser EZ Peel universal t-shirt transfer paper AND the best training available… But now, you get Print Optimizer as well.

Spend Less on Software

We know that as designers and creators you may not have room in your budget for expensive software from Adobe® or Corel® (up to $1,500/set).

We’ve also included an excellent graphics software called GIMP with every copy of Print Optimizer.

  • No NEED to buy any other graphics software.
  • No NEED to bother with paid training or academies.
  • No NEED to learn complicated software features you may never need.

Invest that money back into your business!

Best of all, there are hours of free training videos on Gimp if you need help using it.

[Note: We offer GIMP software for your convenience. We do not provide training or support on Gimp or any software other than Print Optimizer]


Maximize Your Production

There are also TONS more features in Print Optimizer to explore – we haven’t even scratched the surface.


  • Real Production Queues – you will be able to load up an almost unlimited number of jobs, then just print them one after the other
  • Knock Me Out colors – Printing on a blue shirt? Just remove that color from the design inside Print Optimizer. You’ll save on toner, and the shirt will have a better/software texture.
  • Color and Saturation Tools
