If you have ever been looking for something very specific and had a hard time finding it then you know how important it is to have access to customizable products that can meet your needs. People order heat transfer shirts for many reasons but one of the most popular reasons is how versatile and personal they are. Custom heat transfers allow people to choose the design they want on the garment they want; therefore, for a t-shirt store owner, this expands product possibilities, and for the customer, improves the variety of the products available.
Understanding Heat Transfers
The best type of heat transfers are made using plastisol transfer paper. This type of paper is specifically designed to produce the most professional looking and highest quality print. It also ensures that the printed color adheres properly to the material it is pressed onto, and that it looks fresh and new for a long time. Plastisol prints can only be purchased from a professional printer who is experienced with using the material and creating quality prints with it. Plastisol transfers work very well with garments that are 100% cotton as well as those that are made of a material that is 50/50 cotton-polyester blend. These types of materials will provide the best print and last the longest. Plastisol transfers will not work on any synthetic materials such as nylon, rayon or polyester. Since each heat transfer print can only be used one time you want to make sure that you have the right fabric to transfer the print onto.
Pressing Your Prints
Always make sure that you follow the directions precisely to ensure a good transfer and achieve superior results. Garments that are going to receive a transfer should be clean, dry and freshly pressed for the best results. Be sure that you place the transfer exactly where you want it because once it has been used it cannot be used again on another garment.
Caring for Your Heat Transfer Items
Once you have purchased a garment created with a heat transfer, you will want to make sure you take good care of your garment so it lasts a long time. It is best to wash any clothing with transfers in only cold water to help them last longer. It is also a good idea to turn the garments inside-out to protect them in the wash. Also, refrain from exposing the garment to excessive amounts of direct sunlight.
