Rosetta Technologies, a leading provider of Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) printers has created a unique and affordable solution for studio potters, artists, schools and universities who wish to create ceramic decals that can be transferred to and fired on ceramic pieces.
The CerPrint 3500, a 30 page-per-minute laser printer, has been specially engineered to handle a toner with a high amount of ceramic pigment and print successfully to various decal media. Printing at 1200x1200 dots per inch resolution, the CerPrint 3500 produces true black ceramic decals for almost any ceramic substrate – glazed, unglazed, glossy or matte, on a variety of decal media.
Rob Hullar, CEO of Rosetta Technologies and a former potter, stated “The grail has always been to create a true black ceramic toner, something that will replace the iron-bearing toners that yield sepia images in use by many artists today.” And, he added, “it was also important that it be an affordable solution within the reach of the average potter or school budget. I believe we have achieved our goal.”
Hullar further explained, “As a print engineering company, we have a lot combined knowledge in creating laser printer toners with relatively high amounts of inorganic metallic pigments in them. The trick has always been to get those toners to work in laser printers that weren’t designed to do that. We were very excited when we finally came up with the perfect combination of ceramic toner and printer modifications and saw the fired results.” He added, “We live in the Digital Age and young artists are very involved in that world and the almost unlimited creative potential it offers. This is a perfect tool for exploring that potential. It is being used today by ceramic, glass and enamel artists with great results.”
The CerPrint 3500 comes ready to use and includes a pack of fluxed decal paper. When fired to 1600o F, the finished result is durable, food safe, dishwasher proof and has superb depth of color. Both black and grayscale images can be rendered with very reliable accuracy. All that is needed is a computer and high quality digital images to complete the process, and of course, a ceramic kiln.
The CerPrint 3500 has additional materials available for use with it. Rosetta Technologies offers a plain waterslide decal paper for use with their spray fluxed overcoats. It works well with the True Black Ceramic toner. The spray overcoats are available in both 1200F and 1600F formulations.
