rubbery feeling/vinyl transfers

Posted on Tue, 31 Aug 2004 at 12:22



I have been getting requests to put transfers of photos on shirts. My experience with the iron ons is that they do not last. I have seen some shirts out there with photo quality transfers that seem to be thicker and have a rubbery type feel like the one in the 80's. How do I do that? Can I do it with a computer printer and what type of paper? Is it a cold peel paper? What is the best company making this stuff or is it something more complicated printing on this material? Can anyone please shed some light on the process and components and materials I need, I would like to add this to my silk screen operation. Thanks.

There is a company call Specialty Materials that makes great thermal transfer materials to cut on a vinyl cutter. Thay also have in 14"X15' rolls and 8.5"X11" paper sized, printabe transfer material. They work really well. Thay are not the super shinny rubbery one put the last and are easy to get in bulk. Or, Avery, makes letter size ones that are shinny, rubbery and last good, they just cost more and I'v only be able to buy them in small quantities. They also take longer to put on.

Good luck,
