The heat transfer printing method applies custom designs to items like t-shirts, sweatshirts, or bags through a process that uses a combination of heat and pressure. Common kinds of heat transfer printing include vinyl heat transfer and digital print heat transfer.
With the Vinyl Heat Transfer, a machine is used to cut out designs and letters in pieces of colored vinyl.
With Digital Print Heat Transfer, the desired graphic is first digitally printed on special heat transfer paper using a solvent ink.
With both these types of heat transfer, a Heat Press Machine will be needed to transfer the graphic, either vinyl or digitally printed, from one surface to another.
