The heat transfer process has become increasingly popular among t-shirt manufacturers and screen printers. Heat transfer designs are perfect for small orders and on-site printing. Customers can choose the size and color shirt they want and you can print it on demand. This allows you to sell t-shirts at a high profit margin while eliminating overstock of printed shirts. Instead of storing hundreds of t-shirts in your garage and waiting for someone to purchase them, you can just print t-shirts as the orders come in with a heat transfer t-shirt printing machine.
Firstly, do you know how does heat transfer machine work?
First, an image is printed onto sublimation transfer paper rather than directly onto a t-shirt. The specially formulated transfer paper has a smooth surface that serves as a medium for the ink. The next step is to use the heat press machine to transfer the image from the paper to the t-shirt or other garment. Other products onto which you can imprint designs with a heat press machine include plates, mugs, and jigsaw puzzles. By using high temperature and heavy pressure for a certain amount of time, a heat transfer t-shirt printing machine permanently embeds an image onto a t-shirt.
There are many different types of sublimation heat transfer paper available. Some are designed for use at home with an iron, while others require the use of professional t-shirt printing machines. Using a heat press is recommended if you want to achieve professional results. A heat press applies instant, uniform, and consistent heat so you can produce high quality garments. Below are some of the advantages of using heat transfer machines.
