WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Following a similar process to screen printing with the use of a meshed screen, your graphics are printed onto a heat transferable paper. An adhesive powder is added to the final color to Crystallise the ink and allow for Application onto your medium. Each Color of your design is printed separately on individual screens therefore resulting in a single or multicolored print. All Multi-Color prints require a Clear adhesive ink to bind those colors together the adhesive powder is added to this clear adhesive. Most single color prints can have the adhesive powder applied directly and does not require the Clear adhesive ink.
Colours will need to be seperated and printed individually and vectored artwork is by far the best and easiest artwork to work with. Check our design and artwork specs on the link below, for pricing and ordering send your artwork to Us with a bit of information such as:
