Heat transfers services in Mississauga
Printed promotional apparel is among one of the most popular categories of promo items. INKspired Promo offers quality heat transfer appliques in Mississauga. Heat transfers are great for smaller print runs or jobs that involve many colours or have a complex design. This method of printing requires a special printer and quality of paper, as well as a heating press to set the design in place. Heat transfer printing is a newer decoration method, but it’s come a long way from the typical iron-on decals you may have heard of. With heat transfer, also known as digital transfer, your custom logo or design is printed onto transfer paper and then ink is thermally transferred from the paper to your fabric using heat and pressure.
We recommend heat transfers for a number of reasons. The first is that heat transfers are more cost-effective if ordering small quantities of pieces under 15. Additionally, if you desire a full-colour photogenic print with more distinct digital qualities then heat transfer will allow for a more digital finish. Moreover, we recommend doing a heat transfer on products such as toques, knitted sweaters, stickers, signs, ball caps and polyester jerseys to provide a flawless and clear print that produces high-quality images. Some of these products are made up of certain materials and threads that are best for a heat transfer applique. Lastly, if you previously ordered a graduation hoodie or a sports jersey from us with a custom name and numbers, well then it was heat transferred! If you wanted screen-printed names and numbers then you would be paying hundreds of dollars in setup fees. Heat transfers allow us to print multiple names at a time and heat pressing them onto the garment for a customized look. To conclude, if you are an environmentally conscious individual, heat transfers are clean and an environmentally friendly method of printing.
We can provide you with loose heat transfer appliques that you can apply yourself or we can apply them for you at no added cost. Heat transfers are prices per square inch not like our screen printing services that are priced by colour.
There are some cons of heat transfers that screen printing can benefit from. First off, screen printing allows for longer-lasting prints. Check out our screen printing services for more information on this quality printing technique. Additionally, heat transfers are not ideal for darker shirts and colours aren’t as vibrant and bright as screen printed shirts. Lastly, heat transfer results in a stiffer feel on the fabric whereas screen printing is a weightless, undetectable touch print.
With our fast turnaround time and attention to detail, we can meet those tight project deadlines. And always with the same great print quality that you expect from INKspired Promo digital printing company and heat transfer experts.
