In addition to direct screen printing, transfer printing is often used. This is a nice way to finish textiles that are difficult to print. There are different types such as flexographic printing, flock printing, plastisol transfer printing or sublimation printing.

Flex and flock printing

The flex print is another possibility to finish your textile already in small quantities. In addition, flex printing is used especially for difficult to print polyester textiles such as rain jackets or coach jackets. This type of printing has beautiful colours and perfect coverage where it is difficult to achieve vibrant colours with screen printing. As an alternative to screen printing, flex printing uses heat to press special foils onto the textile. There are various foils and special effect foils that would not be possible with direct printing. Please note that only vectorized shapes can be plotted. Beside the flex foil a transfer print can be ironed on. This is initially printed and provided with an adhesive layer. Then it is pressed directly onto the textile under heat as with flex printing.

Screen printing and digital plastisol transfer

In addition to regular screen printing, we also create tansfer prints. These are characterized by clear lines and beautiful color reproduction. In transfer printing, the motif to be printed is printed mirror-inverted on a film and provided with an adhesive layer that melts under heat. The resulting plastisol transfers are heat pressed onto the corresponding textile with the help of a transfer press. A distinction is made between screen printing transfers and digital transfer printing. For multi-coloured motifs, a digital plastisol transfer is used, in which the colour is applied digitally and a carrier layer is printed in a further step using screen printing. Plastisol transfers are used on textiles that are difficult to print directly, but also for size labelling of shirts or in the form of name labelling. We are happy to advise you where this printing technique makes sense for you.

Digital plastisol transfers ideal for multi-coloured motifs

Digital plastisol transfer is the ideal option for multicoloured motifs or photo prints in runs of around 50 or more. The transfer is digitally pre-printed in many colours and then backed with screen printing. This combination allows for best results when transferring the print and extreme wash resistance.
