What is a Screen Print Transfer?
Screen print transfers, also known as plastisol transfers, is a type of garment transfer that has been printed using plastisol inks onto a special release paper. This allows the end user the flexibility of when the transfer is applied and what the transfer is applied to. Screen print transfers can be made in single color or full color images. Keep in mind that full color transfers will feel slightly thicker than single color transfers simply because more ink is used to create the transfer itself. Screen print transfers from CSDS Vinyl can be applied to any cotton, polyester, or cotton-poly blend materials.
All CSDS Vinyl screen print transfers require the use of a commercial grade heat press due to the high, even pressure that is needed for correct application. Home irons will not work. Do NOT use any extra covers such as teflon sheets, heat platten covers or pressing pillows as these can negatively effect the application.
