T-shirt Transfer Printing, Heat Transfer Printing, Icon Printing

Transfer Printing is the process of printing your designs onto special transfer paper and then applying the transfer paper onto the t-shirt or garment using a commercial heat press. It enables full colour images to be printed very quickly and is a great option for promotional clothing.


We can use Transfer Printing when printing onto both light and dark coloured T Shirts and garments. The Transfer Paper used for dark T Shirts and garments is slightly thicker that what is used for light T Shirts and garments. For this reason some people do not like the feel of the transfer paper when printing onto dark colours T Shirts or garments.

If your design is a special shape we can use our cutting machines to cut it to shape (cut out transfer printing), and then apply the design in its unique shape rather than a full square or rectangular. When transfer printing onto light T Shirts and garments the material is much thinner and softer so you can hardly feel anything on the t-shirt.

The quality of the printed tshirt or printed clothing is directly related to the quality of your image or photograph, so you must supply high-resolution artwork or images. Low-resolution artworks or photographs may produce blurry printed images. We recommend at least 150dpi as a resolution. To find our more about artwork guidelines to ensure the highest quality printed tshirts or printed clothing visit our artwork guidelines page.
