White Toner Refills and Chips for Oki
Oki white toner printers are used for specialist
printing onto textiles such as T-shirts. A white background is necessary
for colours to show brightly on dark garments. The Oki C711WT, ES/Pro7411WT,
C920WT, Pro/ES9420WT, C941dn and Pro9541dn are specially designed
to print colour on top of a white background. The finished transfer
paper is then hot pressed onto the garment. It can also be used
for printing onto other dark items such as mugs and leather jackets.
The original Oki white cartridges are very expensive to buy and
a significant saving is possible by refilling them.
Original White toner for Oki
We supply white toner in 250 gram
bottles. This is the original Oki white toner. It gives excellent
results for professional white printing, the same as a new original
cartridge. It is compatible with all Oki white models including
the C711WT, Pro/ES7411WT, C920WT, ES/Pro9420WT, C941 and Pro9541/9543
printers. White toner is more expensive to manufacture than the
regular colours, and this is reflected in the higher price. With
our bottles it is still possible to make a significant saving over
the original cartridges with no difference in print quality.

August 2021: This
product is now discontinued.There
is a shortage of supply of original white toner. The price has
increased signifcantly, to a level where it is not worthwhile.
The cartridges have a killer chip.
This is designed to stop refilling and locks out the cartridge when
the supply gets low. It is necessary to replace the chip each time
you refill to reset the cartridge. With the new replacement chip
the cartridge shows 100% full and can be used for another lifetime
without interruptions or warning messages.
We are pleased to make available the first aftermarket replacement
white chips. You may order in quantities ranging from a single piece
upwards. By purchasing only the quantity you need you will always
be ready to refill with minimal cost when the dreaded replace cartridge
We stock the chips for many white models including the C711WT,
of Normal Printers
The toner we supply is universal
to many regular printer models. This enables conversion of normal
printers to white. It can be a good low cost alternative to investing
in a specialist printer.
The bottle is universal with many
regular Oki colour printer models. It is possible to clean the
colour from a standard colour cartridge and convert it by refilling.
The key is to remove as much of the residual colour as possible
to avoid contamination of the new white. It is also necessary
to remove the residual colour from the imaging drum cartridge.
One way to do this is to keep printing with an empty drum until
very little comes out onto the page.
There are two ways to make
a converted printer:
1. White or Colour
-Prints in separate passes or
using two printers. A machine converted in this way is not as
versatile as a specialist CMYW machine that can produce bright
colours on a white background in one pass.
With a converted printer it is possible to make the white background
seperately. The colour graphics can be printed on the same transfer
paper using a regular colour printer first. Our customer in Indonesia,
Kaoskus, has done this and prints professional T-shirts using
an Oki C332dn converted to print in double white (using M &
Y). The colour graphics are printed using a regular C332dn. Because
the two printers are the same type, the registration of the colour
onto the background is acceptable.

Kaoskus now has also converted an HP Color LaserJet Pro M254 to
trans white. It is possible to use just one printer by having
two sets of cartridges - one for the colour print and one for
the white print. He does the colour pass first, then swaps to
the white cartridges and prints again to layer the background

2. Single Pass CMYW
A better way is to fully convert a normal colour printer so that
it prints colour graphics onto a white background in one pass.
This is just as good as having a specialist model.
To do this you must change the orders of the colours. The standard
order is KCMY (or KYMC for some recent Oki models). It must be
set to CMYW (or CYMW) so that the white background is layered
ontop of the colour graphics as the final stage in the printing
Specialist RIP software is available that works with all PostScript
models. This software lets you change the order of the colours
in this way.
You will need a PostScript printer that lets you install the drums
in different positions - ie. it does not detect any difference
between the drum for each colour. It lets you to change the colour
order without throwing an error.
Many Oki models are suitable for this conversion. It has been
successfully carried out on a C830. Oki printers also have the
advantage of a straight through paper pass, allowing use of heavy
media and card stocks.
There is a Korean company that supplies a single pass conversion
kit for the Oki C610,C612,C831 and C822 models. This includes
their own "Freestyle RIP" software. They can also supply
pre-filled drums, and fully converted printers.
Digital Transfer Total Media Provider
A lower cost alternative is to
convert a monochrome printer. The
bottle is compatible with the Samsung ML-1610, Oki B411/431 and
Xerox Docuprint P105/205 monochrome machines. It is also universal
with many other Samsung monochrome printer models. These are low
cost machines and easy to refill. It is possible to convert the
black cartridge by cleaning out all the residual black and refilling.
One way to do this is to vacuum out the empty cartridge, and then
print until very little black comes out onto the page.
A converted monochrome printer is useful for specialist applications,
such as printing onto black paper or card. This can be used for
restaurant menus and graphic art.
It is also possible to print the
background onto transfer paper using a converted monochrome printer,
for printing onto dark clothing. The main complication is that
you need to use computer software to separate the background from
the colour graphics, so they can be printed separately.
It is not as versatile as a specialist
CMYW machine that can produce bright colours on a dark background
in one pass, and comes with the specialist software and drivers
other Specialist Models
Various other manufacturers have
released special printers for textiles. These include HumanWare,
Uninet, U-Print and SunAngel
Imaging. The Oki toner we supply has not been specifically qualified
for these machines. However we believe that the toner formulation
is similar. It is most likely that you can refill these cartridges
and make a significant saving over the original supplies.
