WHAT IS HTV (HEAT TRANSFER VINYL)?

Heat transfer is the printing method of applying specialty vinyl to garments using a heat press. HTV can be used to print designs onto surfaces where the usual methods are not able to reach, like a hat. They produce high-quality results on most kinds of fabrics.

Firstly, the artwork is checked by our team to make sure it can be processed by our vinyl cutter. The coloured vinyl you pick is loaded onto the machine, and it perfectly scores the design. The cut design is then manually ‘weeded’ (unnecessary parts, like negative space and insides of letters, are removed) before it is pressed with an industrial heat press to permanently fix the design to your garment.

Combed cotton and polyester garments work best for HTV. Care is required when washing: wash inside out, do not tumble dry and do not iron the vinyl design.

This option is not ideal for very large bulk orders as it is a labour-intensive process.
