It is a good option for low demands and photographic image reproduction. Black T-shirts, a square “white or black” will be printed, if the design is not a geometric figure that can be easily cut out (in the case of letters) There is no transfer “worse / better / with another name / or coming from the moon”… Transfer is all the same , all have the same problems of quality, appearance and resistance.

fabric as well. Therefore, this type of technique is not used to print custom shirts.

The print is produced using a high-definition printing plotter and precise cutting. This print is transferred to the fabric by thermo-transfer. The big difference with this type of transfer is that unlike the digital transfer, there are no borders or background in the print.
Like all transfers, its resistance is conditioned to the care with which the piece is washed. Compared to other types of transfer, it is a much superior product. Comparing the resistance and quality that professional textile printing by screen printing can achieve, this product leaves much to be desired.
