Heat Printing Saves the Day (Once Again)

Stahls' Transfer Express produced the multi-color transfers that were heat printed on 100% polyester Under Armour t-shirts.

What kind of custom printing technology do you use when you need to print 1320 units (polyester t-shirts) with a full color logo on the front and a custom name and number on the back? Heat printing. Thanks to a combined effort between Stahls’ Transfer Express, who printed and delivered over 1300 multi-color transfers in less than 2 days and the heat printing team at Stahls’ Decorating Fulfillment Center, the custom printed Under Armour shirts worn at the Tazon Latino Celebrity Flag Football Game on February 2nd were a huge success.

Heat printing is still the fastest, easiest and most cost effective way to add custom names and numbers.

    What is the secret to not scorching the 100 % poly fabric, but still having the screen adhere well? What kind of screens were these and what temp was used? Any info is appreciated!

    Hi Brenda,
    Thanks for reading. The process used to print the shirts was not a direct screen print but rather a screen printed transfer from Transfer Express. The transfers were the best-selling “Goof-Proof” Transfer that are designed for heat printing on polyester, cotton or poly/cotton blends. If you have a Hotronix press the recommended application temp is 360/370 (other machines 375 degrees), applied for 3-5 seconds at medium pressure (6-8 on a Hotronix setting), and then peeled hot. Again, these were not direct printed on the garment, Goof Proof transfers were used. If you need more information about using transfers, please contact Transfer Express at 800-622-2280 and they will be more than happy to answer your questions. I hope this helps!
