What is it?
If you’ve ever had a t-shirt printed with an embarrassing photo and nickname for a hen night, or bought one from the seaside with a cheesy slogan on it, it was probably printed with a vinyl transfer. It’s one of the easiest ways to set up in t-shirt printing (though not everyone can get great results) and, because it lends itself so well to customising individual garments, it still has a place in our list of services.
Vinyl transfers are produced by cutting out or printing on to sheets of vinyl, which are then heat pressed to the garment. The cutting or printing is done straight from the finished artwork so, as with screen print, the better the artwork, the better your vinyl transfer print will be. You can use our technical expertise to get the best from existing artwork, or make use of our artwork service if you have some ideas, but no design just yet. Get in touch or download our artwork requirements for more details.
If your order is for a special gift (be it for a client, competition winner or Bride to Be), we can package it in a bag or special presentation box – again just call us for a quote and we’ll be happy to discuss your needs.
Vinyl transfer tips
Vinyl transfer can be great if:
you just need a few garments and your design doesn’t lend itself to embroidery
you just want a one-off print run and are looking to avoid set-up costs
you’d like each garment personalised with a slightly different print each time (such as a name or team number)
you want to reproduce a very complex image or design, such as a photo or a design with a lot of shading and multiple colours
