Transfers are a quick and easy method of applying designs to garments. If your design is photographic, or contains too many colours for traditional screen printing, then transfers can an ideal alternative.

To create a transfer, special inks are printed onto a backing sheet. The backing sheet is placed onto the garment and using pressure and heat, the image is transferred onto the material. New materials allow transfers to be produced for a wide-range of garments, from standard cotton, polyester & nylon mixtures, even the wickable mesh weaves of today's hi-tec sports clothes.

PROS - photographic quality, discount for volume

CONS - has to be produced in advance, not suitable for fleece, woollen or other heavily woven materials


Vinyl sheets, sometimes known as garment film, are incredibly thin sheets of plastic, that come in a wide assortment of finishes and colours.

A cutter feeds the sheets forward and backward while a tiny blade goes from side to side "drawing" a shape on the vinyl. When the cutting is finished, the material in the area out with the design is carefully peeled away, leaving the finished design on a backing sheet. This is pressed onto the garment with high heat and pressure.

Some vinyl can be washed at high temperatures, dry-cleaned and ironed directly onto. They come in a wide-range of finishes including metallic, glow in the dark, and flock.

PROS Great when you need individual details on a series of garments, have a short run, or quick turnaround is required.

CONS - Not suitable for photographic images, or very intricate designs. Comes in a finite range of colours.
