HEAT TRANSFER PROCESS
Create a customized graphic using professional graphics software. There are a variety of
plotters/cutters on the market to create transfers on a variety of materials.
Alternately, transfers can also be created using screen printing and is not limited to
digital software. If outsourcing is preferred, transfers can also be ordered from a
number of companies that can provide guidance on the right type of transfer based on the
type of Comfort Colors® garment - whether direct/reactive or pigment dyed - and the
intended purpose/usage. The preparation cost to print a transfer is the same as for a
classic screen print (film, screen, ink). The advantage of a transfer is that you can print
easily on a manual press, print a few more transfers if needed for stock for later use and
create transfers for specialty garments. When the design is complete, flip it horizontally
to create a reverse image.
