Heat Printing on TriBlend Tees
Before you heat print, it is essential that you choose the right heat transfer with the right adhesive. Years ago, most shirts were just pure cotton, or a 50/50 cotton poly blend. Pretty simple. But if you sell custom printed apparel today, you have more choices. One of those choices is what’s known as Tri-Blends. As the name suggests, they are made of three different fibers; cotton, polyester and rayon. Tri-blends are beloved for their softness and drape. They offer a higher fashion or trendy edge in a t-shirt and are usually lightweight and can even be slightly sheer. It is possible to heat print on Tri-Blends but first you need to understand the do’s and don’ts for successful results. These two videos from StahlsTV give you all the information you need.
