🌵What is the Difference Between Sublimation Transfers, DTF Transfers & Screen Print Transfers

  • Sublimation transfers are made with a special ink and paper that once introduced with ink and pressure, transfers from the paper to the shirt dying the polyester fibers of the shirt. This is why your shirt needs to be at least 50% polyester or higher in order to work. The higher the poly count the more vivid your image because the poly fibers is what holds the ink, it also needs to be light colored or white shirt
  • Direct to Film or DTF is a process that transfers prints onto fabric or other substrates using a heat-press mechanism. Unlike the DTG method, which only works on cotton fabrics, the Printer DTF method can work on cotton and poly blends.
  • Screen Print Transfers are made with plastisol ink placed onto special release paper, no ink or stencil required! Screen print transfers allow you to be able to use any color or fabric shirt unlike sublimation. They are printed as spot color inks, which mean they are made with a solid pigment dye!
 

🌵What is the Difference Between High Heat and Low Screen Print Transfers:

  • High Heat Screens feel very smooth on the back, almost like rubber.
  • Low Heat Screens (Not Specified) feel very rough, like sandpaper.
 

🌵Can I Use Mockups?:

  • Absolutely! You can use the mockups provided in the group or on the website listings to gauge interest! You don’t have to watermark them but I do ask that you don’t alter my watermark. 
  • If there is a mockup you can not find, please reach out via Facebook or email, and we will help you find it! 
  • We do have a drive of past mock ups for use :  https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1-bgWLd8L8G0meupSywG-QHXMOom7stE9

🌵How Do I Apply These?:

  • Screen Prints are pressed at HIGH HEAT 375°; Not specified at 325°. 7-10 Seconds. Heavy Pressure. Hot Peel.
  • Sublimation Transfer are pressed at 400°; 60 Seconds. Medium Pressure. Hot Peel.
  • DTF transfers are pressed at 325° for 15 seconds, Heavy Pressure COLD PEEL. Repress additional15 seconds!
  • AN EASY PRESS OR IRON WILL NOT WORK FOR EITHER OF THESE TRANSFER TYPES.
