Over the past few years, heat applied decoration techniques have zoomed right to the top of the list and apparel vinyl has been a very important part of that trend. While it continues to be the best way to personalize garments for spirit wear and team wear, it also has great benefits as an alternative decoration to traditional screen printing. It is a great way to decorate hard to print items and A way to "BLING" your design too!
TRANSFERS and SUBLIMATION
With digital transfers or sublimation transfers, artwork is output to an ink jet printer, printed on a special paper with specialized inks, and then pressed on to the substrate using heat and pressure. The result is a highly detailed, bright color, photographic image that can now be placed on many different products from t-shirts to coffee mugs. The benefit is that there are no limitations to the artwork. If the printer can print it, you can transfer it, and there are no minimums, set up charges, or any fees associated with this decorating technique. It makes a great promotional item or special gift.
