What is a VersaSTUDIO BT-12?
The Roland VersaSTUDIO BT-12 is a compact printer that allows you to print directly onto light coloured cotton or cotton-mix fabric (min 50% cotton). It is usually supplied together with the HB-12 dryer which fixes the ink to the fabric. It has been designed to be simple, safe and easy to use so that anyone can create original products of exceptional quality without special skills or training and is ideal for small business enterprises.

How does it Work?
First you import your design in PNG or JPG format into the design software that comes with the machine. You then load your fabric into an A4 or A5 cassette which you then insert into the printer. You then simply choose “Print” in the software. Once printed, you transfer the fabric to the dryer which then fixes the ink to it.

What Quality Image Can I Expect?
With a resolution of up to 1,200dpi, even designs with photos print beautifully to offer personalised, professional products such as T-shirts, cushion covers, Tote bags, etc.

What is the Difference from Sublimation or LIT?
With sublimation or LIT, the image must be printed onto transfer paper and then heat pressed onto the final media. Sublimation media must be polyester-based whereas LIT can be used on a variety of different media. With the BT-12 the image is printed directly onto any cotton or cotton-mix fabric (50% cotton minimum) and then inserted into the HB-12 dryer to fix the ink to the fabric. It is a completely “safe” process as the dryer is a fully enclosed heater system.

How Much Space Does It Take Up?
The printer can be stacked on top of the HB-12 finisher to provide a complete printing process in the smallest possible space – only 419(W) x 760(D) x 513(H)mm.

What Software Do I Need?
The VersaSTUDIO BT-12 comes complete with Roland design software which consists of simple operation screen for importing and editing images easily before printing them. Imported image formats include jpg and png. The design itself could be a piece of clip-art, or could have been drawn in any graphics program – we would recommend 2D Design V2 of course!
