Heat Transfer printing, also known as thermal printing/dye-sublimation, is a newer decoration method that uses the pigment ink (dye) digitally printed onto a piece of transfer paper and then heated to transfer the dye onto your material using heat and pressure (on a molecular level). Because the design is bonded on a molecular level it will never crack or peel.
Heat transfers able to apply a multi-color custom logos and designs to a variety of custom apparel and accessories. Heat Transfer printing is preferred over direct thermal printing on surfaces that are heat-sensitive or when higher durability of printed matter (especially against heat) is desired. Heat transfer is a popular print process particularly used for the printing of identification labels, ceramic, glass, metal, fabric, lanyard & etc.
Heat transfer can be done in a wide variety of finishes (metallic or glossy finish), but it achieves a shiny finish better than most decoration types by applying a pre-cut vinyl coating design artwork onto any object. This transfer process uses heat to activate and attach a vinyl sticker to a fabric. Vinyl is soft to the touch with great stretch and is durable enough which made in single colors and also has special options such as patterned, glitter, flocked, holographic, glow-in-the-dark, reflective and 3D puff.
