A heat transfer laser printer is a versatile facility allowing digital decoration of fabrics and rigid materials. This is a different animal from the laser printer for documents. That woks rather like a photocopier and there's no heat to speak of. The ink sticks to the printer drum by static electricity.

For printing documents that static electricity transfers a dry ink powder called a toner to make the image or letter on a page. It's a very inferential process from the inkjet printer wher wet ink is squirtedat the page.

When one thinks of laser and with laser printers, one of the first things that come to mind is why don't the laser in the printer burn the page. A laser printer works the same way that a photocopier does in the sense that it employs and uses a beam of light in order to create an image. Basically, a laser printer gets the information and image to print from the computer. The laser goes back and forth across the printer drum which in turn creates static electricity. The static energy then attracts the ink that is located inside of the printer toner. A laser printer has a bonding unit just like any photocopier. This bonding unit allows for the ink inside of the toner to adhere to the page which in turn creates the printed image. Laser printers have been around since the late 1960's and ever since have innovated themselves into a piece of technology that is very commonplace in today's society.
