What You Need To Get Started With Heat Transfer Printing?

In order to start your heat transfer printing, there are few things you need to acquire. They are affordable and come in different types depending on your purpose.

1. Heat press machine

These comes in different sizes and with different prices. Also, some are unique for some kind of designs. So get the one that matches your need.

Also, check the temperature at the edges and the middle of the plate to be sure that the temperature is uniform. This is to make sure that the designs don’t peel off due to inefficient transfer.

Heat press machine is different in sizes and affordability. If you are starting out newly, go for the simple and cheaper ones. When the business starts growing, get the professional machines that have bigger platen for heat transfers on a large material.

These professional heat transfer machines also have unique features like temperature and time settings, pressure and bigger platen for bulk printing.

2. Inkjet printer

A printer is used to print out your designs, artwork or logo on the paper you will use for the heat transfer. There is a reason why I prefer the inkjet printer to Laser printers.

Inkjet printers will produce excellent heat transfer than laser printers.
Not all laser jet printers can produce good heat transfer designs.
Inkjet printers are more affordable compared to laser jet
Don’t forget to buy your Printer inks/t-shirt ink depending on your choice.

3. Carrier paper

This is the paper you will use for the heat transfer on the t-shirt. It usually has a film on one side where your design will be printed on. Be sure to buy the professional carrier grade type instead of the regular paper you see everywhere.

Remember, your choice of transfer paper will also affect your output. However, there are some things you need to check before you purchase a heat transfer paper.

Buy a transfer paper vinyl type that has a soft hand after transfer and after washing. It will have enough film to make your designs or images stick to your t-shirt. So you should avoid any paper that feels like a cardboard paper when you touch it.
If you want to print on a white t-shirt or any other light colored garment, the choice of the paper to buy will be the clear transfer paper.

On dark or deep colored t-shirts, buy an opaque transfer paper. Believe me, you don’t want to use opaque paper on white and clear paper on dark materials. That will certainly create confusion.

What’s the Difference Between Heat Transfer Printing vs Screen Printing?

rotary heat pressIf you are in digital printing areas, you’re probably wondering what the difference is between all these very similar printing options – like heat transfer printing vs screen printing. In this article, we’ll help you decide which printing process is best for you by breaking down the differences between these two common printing types.

When a design is produced using the screen printing method, actual screens are used in the process! Essentially, this screen is cut to make a stencil for the design. Ink is then spread over the screen, passing through to the object underneath only in the areas you want it to be. Only one color per screen can be used – so depending on the number of colors in the design, you’ll need multiple screens to produce the final item.

The heat transfer printing method applies custom designs to items like t-shirts or tablecloths through a process that uses a combination of heat and pressure. Common kinds of heat transfer printing include vinyl heat transfer and digital print heat transfer. With the vinyl heat transfer process, a machine is used to cut out designs and letters in pieces of colored vinyl. A heat press is then used to transfer each vinyl color of the design onto the object being printed. With digital print heat transfer, the desired graphic is first digitally printed on special heat transfer paper using a solvent ink. This type of ink allows the design to be transferred from the paper to the item being printed when pressed with heat. With both these types of heat transfer, a heat press machine will be needed to transfer the graphic, either vinyl or digitally printed, from one surface to another. It’s the magical combination of heat and pressure that transfers the design!

We FeiYue Digital Technology Co., Ltd mainly manages sublimation paper, inkjet printer, digital printing inks, calender machines and accessories, operating this industry has been more than 10 years experience. After continuous improvement of the product, to ensure product quality can also be profit at the same time to the minimum, to ensure that customers enjoy the best price and the best quality products.

Something Need To Consider Before Buying A Heat Press Machine

​Here’re the important things you need to keep in mind when purchasing the best affordable t-shirt printing machine for your t-shirt printing needs.

heat press machine1. Quality
The first thing you want to do when buying your heat press machine for t-shirts is the quality. As much as you want to invest your money in a durable, long-term machine, you’ll need to make sure it comes with the ultimate quality.

The easiest way to detect a durable machine when comparing different models is looking at the weight. Of course, a durable, high-quality machine will be heavier given the materials used to construct it.

Your machine needs to withstand consistent clamping and movements involved. And if you invest in a bad quality, light machine, it will not be able to handle that.

2. Budget
This is especially useful for beginners who are planning to buy their first ever machine.

My simple advice is: spend according to your limits while making sure the machine you buy will meet your basic printing needs.

3. Digital Timer and Temperature Control
Almost all the modern cheap heat press machines are integrated with digital time and temperature controls. These help you set the correct time and temperature values depending on the materials you’re working on.

If you don’t wish to risk burning your customer’s t-shirts or tote bags due to overexposure, you’ll need to consider this feature.

4. Temperature and Time Range
While still on temperature and time aspects of a heat transfer machine, you should take a chance to learn their range.

​For a standard heat press, about 350 degrees Fahrenheit temperature and approx. 10 seconds is adequate to meet your t-shirt printing needs. The range will vary if you’re working on thicker garments- like hoodies or sweatshirts.

heat press machine5. Size
The choice of the heat transfer you buy should primarily be fueled by the space available as well as the size of the garments you’re working on.

I’d suggest that you consider the bigger models- measuring 16 x 20 inch as they offer you a larger working space.

Models smaller than this are great if you’re on a budget- though they might not offer you a comfortable working space when printing on larger garments such as XL tees and hoodies.

If you’re working on kids t-shirts, models as small as 9 x 12 inch will serve you well.

If you’ve limited space at your office or home, consider investing in compact models that are space-efficient.

In addition, there are many other things need to consider. We will share with you next time.
