Take Control of Your Graphics
Like Never Before

UniNet has developed a series of software packages to enhance your iColor® printing experience. The iColor® TransferRIP and ProRIP packages make it simple to produce spot color overprint and underprint in one pass. The iColor® SmartCUT suite allows your A4/Letter sized printer to produce tabloid or larger sized transfers! Use one or more with the iColor® 500, 550 or 600 series oftransfer printers.

iColor® SmartCUT

Why use iColor® SmartCUT

Easily print oversized images on letter/A4 sized printers with UniNet's optional iColor® SmartCUT software.

SmartCUT is a cross platform, user centric tool that is a key component to expanding the size constraints of popular print methods, especially as it relates to transfer printing commonly associated with garment decoration. This ground breaking application turns your letter/A4 sized printer into a tabloid ‘plus’ capable machine, allowing for the splitting and splicing of one graphic across two or more printed transfer sheets.

Use any oversized graphic, and the software will split it in half along the most logical path. You can choose to have it split along dark or light areas, depending on the color garment you will be pressing onto. With this software, you can make 3XL shirts that are not possible with even the most expensive of printing systems because you can gang up as many transfer sheets as you want.

SmartCUT was designed from the ground up with ease of use as a paramount consideration. Most functions are automated to allow you to focus on finding the best starting point to split each job. The software supports PNG files with transparent backgrounds.

The program works as an integral part of a decorating system, where the split pages are printed onto iColor® Standard transparent transfer media. The sheets are then lined up visually on the substrate through the transparent sheet.

SmartCUT opens the door for the iColor® 500 & 550 (as well as other popular brands) to print these common design sizes such as 15” square, as well as plus size garments such as 2X, 3X, 4X. The ability to print designs that properly fill out these large sizes creates the opportunity for high value garments that can fetch a premium price. The software allows owners of A4/Letter sized printers to have the print size benefits of a Tabloid or larger printers.

SmartCUT WORKS!!! A tremendous amount of research and testing has proven the concept that using the method implemented in this application will produce results for a very high percentage of designs that are virtually imperceptible by even those who know that a seam exists.

The iColor® ProRIP or TransferRIP is the magic behind one pass printing with white. iColor® ProRIP or TransferRIP software allows colors to be put down in layers. Regular printer drivers only concern themselves with what the eye sees on the top layer, the RIP allows you to separately control each layer, thus giving you the ability to control not only what you see, but what is behind that top layer (typically the white layer). The iColor® ProRIP or TransferRIP gives you the unique ability to use one machine to print images with white as an underprint or an overprint. You can now print vibrant colors on clear or dark media regardless of the background to which it is applied, where the white is put down first and the colors afterwards. The iColor® ProRIP or TransferRIP ‘Color Mapping’ feature also allows for ‘Reverse Printing’ when printing and transferring to garments where white is put down last. This is the only way to achieve white underprint and overprint in one pass, and this is an exclusive feature of the iColor® series printers. Both versions allow for color manipulation and removal, rasterization and advanced layout tools.
