Transfer Types

Poking around our website and not really understanding what the different transfer types are?  Then this article is for you!

1. Screen Print Transfers
These transfers are screen printed with plastisol ink on a special release paper.  Traditional screen printing equipment is used to create these transfers.
Screen print transfers can be used on a variety of textiles, including cotton, polyester, cotton/poly blends, wood, canvas, glass, etc.
These transfers have a light weight feel on the garment if pressed correctly.
We do offer custom screen print transfers, however there is a minimum order quantity required due to the print process.

2. Sublimation Transfers 
These transfers are printed with disperse dyes on a paper that has a special polyester coating using a configured printer specifically for the sublimation process.
Sublimation transfers must be pressed on lighter colored high polyester apparel items.  When pressed, the ink changes from a solid to a gas.  As a heated gas, the ink is able to dye the polyestery fibers of the fabric instead of the ink lying on top of the fabric.
These transfers have no texture or weight when pressed on the garment because the fibers of the garment are being dyed rather than an ink sitting on top of the garment.
We do offer custom sublimation transfers with no minium order quantity.

3. Direct to Film Transfers (DTFilm) 
These transfers are printed with water-based inks on a special clear polyester film that requires a powder adhesive coating and heat curing to finalize the print process.
These transfers can be pressed on cotton, polyester, or cotton/poly blends.
These transfers have a light weight feel, however they are a bit heavier than a screen print transfer.  However, the vibrancy of the water-based inks is superior to what you will get out of a full color screen print transfer.
We do offer custom DTFilm transfers with no minimum order quantity, however at this time orders must be placed via email so we are able to control the volume and turnaround time until our second printer is set up.

4. Direct to Garment Printing (DTG) 
If you have a very detailed design, or maybe only need a few full color designs, the superior print method is Direct to Garment Printing.  DTG Printing uses specialized aqueous ink jet technology to print the design directly on the apparel item.  The color and ability to print fine details is unmatched with any other print method.  
In this instance, we would print the design directly onto the apparel item and send you the finished product to provide to your customer(s).
We are able to print any of the designs on our website as a DTG item.  
We also offer custom DTG printing with no minimum order quantity, however DTG pricing is based on a tiered pricing model (i.e. the more you purchase the cheaper they are).
