Screenprint transfer printing is similar to direct screen-printing, however, instead of printing directly onto a garment, special ink is printed onto a release paper, which can then be heat-applied onto a variety of products. Screen print transfers are extremely versatile. They can be printed onto cotton, polyester, and blended garments, as well as bags, towels, hats, and other accessory products. Artwork for screenprint transfers can be “ganged” in order to reduce costs. Ganging artwork means that several designs can be printed onto a single sheet of transfer paper, which lowers the cost of the transfers. There is also a lower equipment cost than other product decoration methods, and the print time is much quicker. With screenprint transfers, you don’t have to hold printed inventory. Rather, you can print on-demand, which saves money and prevents you from being stuck with printed inventory that you may or may not sell. However, there is a larger upfront cost in the form of the transfers, which you are dependent upon to be able to print.
