Transfer printing

What is transfer printing:

Transfer is the process of printing your designs onto a special, transferrable vinyl material. We can use transfer printing for both light and dark coloured T-Shirts or any other garments. The material used for dark T-Shirts and garments is slightly thicker compared to the white ones. The material used when printing onto white garments is transparent and therefore uses the white of the garment to make the colours stand out whereas the base vinyl for coloured garments is white and so the colours are printed used a CMYK process on top of the white substrate.

There are different base materials available for Nylon and “stretchy” garments to ensure the print will be the most adequate for the garment we are printing on to. We will always make sure that the print will last as long as possible by ensuring that we use the correct transfer material for each individual order and garment type.


At Garment Printing we aim to always exceed our customer’s expectations by offering the best quality standards possible. We, therefore, have only state-of-the-art machinery and the most modern printing techniques. Our printing techniques include:
