Heat Transfers are printed then weeded and applied to garments with our heat press. Transfers are excellent for multiple colour designs, shading, colour gradient, providing vivid colour and a streamlined finish. Transfers produce excellent results on most fabrics. Transfers generally last approximately 60 washes - for best results wash in cold water, turn inside out, don’t tumble dry, no bleach or oxidising agents and do not iron the logo.
Suitable for logos with lots of colours and detail, can print shading/colour gradient.
Best applications for Digital Transfer:
Clothing, Tee Shirts & Singlets, Hi Vis & Safety Wear, Trucker Caps, Sport Bags, Tote Bags, Fabric Bags, Aprons.
Artwork is vectored which is part of the set up fee. Once the artwork is vectored we provide a proof for approval. After approval the design has cutlines applied and is sent to the printer from our computer. Printer is engaged and design is printed and cut ready for weeding. Weeding is the process of removing the unwanted parts of the transfer design before pressing the design permanently onto garments.
The transfer material we use prevents colour migration and has stretch integrated which helps with garment movement.
