The process of heat transfer printing is straight forward and cost effective. The majority of the designs we print using this method are "Direct Film Transfer" prints where using a larger printer, the ink of a design is printed onto a carrier sheet. A single colour design can also be cut into vinyl for simpler one colour designs.
The next step in the process is placing the garment on one of our professional grade heat presses. After giving the garment a pre-press to remove any excess moisture or wrinkles, the transfer is lined up on the garment using our laser alignment system for a perfect, straight placement every time. The design is then heat sealed into the garment at between 280-330° celsius. After the garment has cooled off, any carrier material is removed and the process is complete. The high quality transfers that we use is rated to last at least 50 washes. As with screen printed garments, for best results, wash on a low heat setting with the garment turned inside out, and either air dry or choose a low heat drying setting.
