Transfer printing is a term that describes any technique that begins on a non-textile surface before being transferred onto the fabric.
The process involves printing your designs onto a special, transferrable vinyl material. It can be used for both light and dark coloured garments. The material used for darker garments is slightly thicker compared to light. The material used when printing onto white garments is transparent and therefore uses the white of the garment to make the colours stand out, while the base vinyl for coloured garments is white and so the colours are printed used a CMYK process on top of the white substrate.
Include business case
A common assumption with vinyl is that they end up looking cheap. However, if you use high quality materials, such as those we provide, this is not an issue.
Your garments should last a good amount of time without the design fading or cracking. We provide high-quality vinyls and paper to prolong durability.
Yes this method is fine for either. The key thing to remember with dark colours is that the garments will feel thicker than the white ones whereas the fabric that is going to be used for whiter garments is going to be thinner since it is transparent.
