Working with Screen-Printed Heat Transfers

Keep these considerations top of mind when working with screen-printed transfers. 

There are a few considerations to keep in mind when working with screen-printed transfers:

  • The size of the job you are printing: A 48-plus order is ideal for using screen-printed transfers. Keep in mind, pending the number of colors, 48 still may be cost prohibitive.
  • The number of colors in your design: The screen-printing method charges per color and by the number of sheets, so keeping the number of colors to a minimum will save on costs.
  • The heat press: Consider applying with a heat press that gives a digital read-out of time, temperature, and pressure so you are positively using the correct application every time.
