Where it all started
We are TheMagicTouch®
In 1989, with the arrival of the first Canon CLC color laser copier, Juergen Hagedorn invented the first patented image textile transfer for electrostatic dry toner copiers. Thus began TheMagicTouch. His invention was the start of today’s personalization, and with it, he managed to create a successful business built on personalized or short run full-color printing onto virtually any substrate. TheMagicTouch was launched worldwide through a network of resellers, in-house training, passionate guidance, and transfer of technical knowledge, making sure everyone is able to assist customers in their own languages and cultures.

“A photo on a T-shirt? Nobody wants that .. This is just a stupid idea!”
The start of TheMagicTouch®
The company started with our former CEO Juergen Hagedorn. A smart talented, creative inventor who started the company from the bottom, to a recognised global, and familiar company.
The first patented transfer paper
TTC 300 the world’s first patented image transfer for electrostatic dry toner copiers/printers. This was one of the first milestones we achieved by protecting our great invention.
TTC 300 was a major succes!
The personalisation market picked it up rapidly and with the start of TTC 300 for the color/copier CL1 the idea of a photo on a T-shirt got international attention and recognition.
The Quickprint Industry Awards
We got the Canon Colour Copy Awards for creating extra possibilities with transferpapers by just using a colour copy machine. This is were we were promoted to pioneers in the industry.
TheMagicTouch® OBM 5.6
The demand for dark garments was next. A year later TheMagicTouch invented a white, thin coated transferpaper for dark garment where customers could print full colour + white images onto dark garments – in just one step.
TheMagicTouch® DCT 4.5
Niche markets in specific countries asked for more options then only textile transfers. We started with a waterslide decal to decorate candles and so much more.
TheMagicTouch® CPM 6.4
At this time our portfolio started to become the first and widest variaty of options. With TheMagicTouch® CPM 6.4, personalising on hard surfaces was tackled and opened great, new oppertunities.
