Heat Transfer

What is Heat Transfer?

Vinyl Heat Transfer is an alternative to screen print for low runs.  It is still vivid in color like screen print but not as soft.    It is mostly used for low runs on dark colors and for names and numbers on jerseys.

How does it work?  A vinyl film is cut with a plotter and then excess material weeded away from the design.   The final design is then transferred to a garment using a heat press, hence the name Heat Transfer.   In some cases a design is printed onto the film and a whole design is transferred, and other times each color is cut and applied separately.  

Pros: Looks like screen print, very vidid in color and easier to run a small  volume.

Cons: Takes time to get setup and production ready, not as long lasting as screen print.

Note:  Used for low quantity runs where DTG or Screen Print are not suitable, and name/number blocks on jerseys.
