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.
