We are specialists in thermal heat transfer printing. As one of the more popular printing methods, it uses vinyls of all different types; colours, special effects and textures to create individual or bulk runs. These include the likes of flock, textured feel prints, metallic, fluorescent and even glow in the dark prints! This method uses a vinyl automated cutter to cut designs from vinyl specified by computer design artwork. After the cutting process, the vinyl waste material is removed leaving a desired print; which is then heat transferred at temperatures in excess of 150 degrees to any type of garment.
