What is transfer?
As mentioned, there are two types of transfer stamping: textiles, screen printing and direct or classic.
The Transfer of Screen Printing (Plastisol) Textiles is a lot like the Silk screen except that the ink does not print directly on fabric but on a special paper, which is then transferred to the garment by means of a thermal plate system.
Has the same color limitations that classical but with the advantage that the transfer can be saved for later use screen printing.
The use of Pantone colors quite accurately retains the original. The picture quality offered allows us to obtain a very realistic for both color as white garments, offering greater resistance in its finish.
You can use color process, spot colors for metal, fluorescent, etc.
Classic Transfer (paper)
Direct Transfer is a system that consists of transferring a printed sheet in a printer of high resolution color to a light or dark fabric through heat press, obtaining very visual results. It is very economical for small amounts.
Unlike vinyl printing and cutting, design forms in the transfer are not cut, but transferred as a sticker to the garment. Touch is somewhat softer than vinyl.
Although it is a technique with acceptable strength can not compare to the quality and durability of screen printing, vinyl or digital printing.
The great advantage of Plastisol Transfer about screen printing, for example, is that you need not know in advance the size and color of the garment on which it is to be transferred.
Is a delicate art that requires washing clothes in cold and upside down.
