What is heat transfer vinyl?

Heat Transfer is a fairly simple process. First, chose a graphic you would like on your shirt. Lets say you want a photo of a dog chasing a cat – the image is then edited and touched-up by our graphic designer with color correction to make sure it will look perfect on your custom t-shirt. Then, using high-quality printers, the imaged is placed onto professional heat transfer paper. Please note that this is one of the big differences between heat transfer vinyl and an iron-on. Iron-On uses lower grade paper that needs lower heat for the transfer to work. High-quality heat transfer paper needs special machinery with higher temperatures for heat transfer vinyl to effectively work.

Heat Transfers are great for applying full images that a DTG or Screen Printer might have trouble with.

FUN FACT: Iron-On heat transfers are often low quality, peel and wash away after a few too many wears, however,  professional Heat Transfers by TravelNShoppe can last as long as the shirt they’re printed on.
