Plastisol Transfer Printing

Are you a textile screen printer who's looking for a new product to sell or a way to increase your profits in some of the jobs you're printing now? Heat-applied plastisol transfers may be exactly what you're searching for. They can increase sales and profits and they're cheap and easy to make.

The basic process for producing heat-applied plastisol transfers is uncomplicated. You print a design with plastisol ink, but instead of printing it directly on the garment, you print the design on special paper. The paper is then passed through a dryer where the ink is heated until it has gelled just enough to be dry to the touch. It's important not to cure the ink too much.

The resulting print, called a transfer, can be stored until needed. When you want to apply the transfer to a T-shirt, place the garment in a heat transfer press, put the transfer on top of the garment, ink side down, and close the press. The heat and pressure applied by the press will force the ink into the garment and finish curing it. When the press is opened and the paper is peeled off the shirt, the ink remains behind. When done correctly, a heat-applied plastisol transfer will be as permanent as a direct print and under some circumstances nearly indistinguishable.

Plastisol Heat Transfer

The two most common types of plastisol heat transfers are Hot-Split and Cold-Peel. The main difference between the two is the way they are applied. When applying hot-split transfers, the transfer paper is removed immediately after the heat transfer press is opened. Because the plastisol ink layer is still hot and relatively fluid, it splits. Most of the ink remains on the T-shirt, but some adheres to the paper. Hot split transfers have a very soft hand and when properly applied, are almost indistinguishable from a direct print. Because hot split transfers leave a thinner layer of ink on the T-shirt, you may have problems with opacity, especially on dark-colored garments.

When applying cold-peel transfers, the paper is not removed until the ink and garment have cooled. The entire ink layer adheres to the T-shirt. Cold-peel transfers are quite stiff and have a characteristic smooth or glossy look. They have excellent opacity and are popular on athletic uniforms.

Other types of transfers include hot-peel, where the paper is peeled while the transfer is still hot but the ink layer does not split, puff transfers, where the applied transfer has the three-dimensional look of a direct-print puff design, and process color transfers, where a half-tone process color print is applied to the garment.
