Thermal Carrier

Blue 9"x12" Thermal Carrier -- in Stock and Ready to Ship.

For use by Tattoo Thermal Spirit Master or Screen printing Thermal Screen

Improve the quality of the burn by using this high performance carrier. Using this carrier spreads the infrared light energy evenly over the transfer and this will often correct burn problems such as over and under exposure or added marks on the copy, giving you the best--a clear even stencil. This carrier also keeps the machine cleaner including the copy belt and rollers. It will reduce paper jams saving headaches and repairs. It also saves money by holding smaller pieces of thermal paper.  

Heat resistant and engineered for repeated use.
Tough, non tearing, non yellowing, high clarity.

The best choice for a high performance carrier!

This tattoo Thermofax carrier sleeve is for 3M Thermofax machines. It can be used with newer Thermofax or older 3M Thermo-Fax The Secretary models as well the Standard and USI models. (Yes, this Tattoo Thermal Spirit Master Carrier will also work for the AB Dick, the VistaFax, the German Panenka, the China made machine -- all of which have the glass cylinder.)

NOTE: you may need to trim the size of the carrier sheet for it to feed properly on some models. (let me know I will trim for free)

The carrier size is 9x12 inch color is blue.

Price is per one carrier: blue 9x12"

Buy 3 get the 4th free.

Buy more than one no extra shipping.

Ready To buy a Blue Thermal carrier / Blue Thermofax carrier size 9x12 inches

$17.50 each plus $7.25 Shipping INSURED USPS Priority Mail w/ Delivery Confirmation(you will get an email when the shipping label is printed.
Flash or thermal paper not included--carrier only no packaging.


TIPS:

  • When the carrier begins to exit the machine support the carrier as it emerges then remove it from machine.
  • IMMEDIATELY open the carrier and peel your thermal design for best results.
  • Thermal Spirit Masters and thermal screen should always be run in our carrier to avoid costly repairs on stencil making machines.
  • Our carrier is used to hold items passing through the thermal copier thus reducing jams. The carrier will stop designs wrapping around the glass roller and causing a jam on those models.
  • Using our Thermal Carrier in thermal fax machine results in a cleaner copy. It will reduce over and under exposure and get clear and even stencils every time.
