TYPES OF INKS FOR PLASTISOL (SCREEN PRINTED) TRANSFERS

  • Hot Split – Screen printed transfers with a softer feel. Hot Split transfers are printed without adhesive, instead using inks that will melt into the fabric giving the softest, lightest feel. This lightweight screen printed transfer is ideal for thin materials such as burnout T-shirts. Use a heat press to apply. Recommended fabrics: cotton, polyester, cotton/poly blends.
  • Goof Proof – The fastest and easiest screen printed transfer to apply. Goof Proof is versatile, durable, and offers great opacity on any color apparel. It is ideal for adding names/numbers or designs to athletic wear and offers unlimited color combinations. Recommended Fabrics: cotton, polyester, cotton/poly blends
  • Glitter – The latest trend in screen printed transfers. Glitter screen printed transfers add sparkle to your design and can be applied to any color apparel. They look best with large, bold designs. Glitter is ideal for cheer, spirit, and fashion wear. Multi-color transfers can be screen printed in 2-5 glitter colors. A rhinestone effect can be created using Glitter and a dot pattern. Recommended fabrics: cotton, polyester, poly/cotton blends
  • Polytrans -A low-temperature application alternative. Polytrans uses the Goof Proof ink formula and applies at a lower temperature to prevent ink migration of multi-color screen printed transfers. Works great with heat-sensitive fabrics such as rayon and acrylic. Recommended fabrics: cotton, polyester, poly/cotton blends.*If you’re needing quick turnaround on transfers, TransferExpress is the place to go.
