Textile Transfer Films
Our range of textile transfer films include both vinyl and flock and come in a range of colours and finishes and are specially manufactured to be applied to Cotton, Poly/Cotton, Polyester, Nylon and Fleece.
Vinyl and flock films are a great alternative to embroidery and often the end result is an embroidery type finish but with a greater clarity on smaller logos and fonts and like our transfer paper range we can produce logos on single runs with out any logo set up fees like most embroiders charge.
Both films are hard wearing and can be ironed over, tumble dried & dry cleaned and you don’t get any irritations (nipple rash) from the interlock used on the inside of the garment when embroidered.
With our extensive and ever growing range of different transfer papers we are able to produce single and multi colour logos doing single one off print runs and without any expensive set up fees unlike the traditional screen printers. The printing capabilities of these papers and systems is a real highlight and offers significant benefits over embroidery as even the smallest fonts, detailed artwork and graduations of colour are perfectly produced.
The transfers are durable enough to withstand high temperature washing, dry cleaning and can also be tumble dried. They can also be stretched with no damage unlike some screen printing inks that will crack on exertion making the transfer papers ideal for workwear, corporate wear and sportswear applications.
Sublimation printing is the application of sublimation inks onto a surface using a heat press to provide the required combination of heat, time and pressure. This combination causes the inks to be converted from a solid to a gaseous state enabling them to penetrate the sublimatable surface so that a permanent, full colour image is formed.
Sublimation printing is always done on a polyester, polymer, or polymer coated item. At high temperatures, the solid dye converts into a gas without ever becoming a liquid.The same high temperature opens the pores of the polymer and allows the gas to enter.
When the temperature drops, the pores close and the gas reverts to a solid state. It has now become a part of the polymer.
