Screen Printed Hot Split Transfers
What are they?
Hot Split transfers are screen printed transfers in up to 6 colours. It gets the name from the fact that the ink on the transfers 'splits' when heat pressed and the backing has to be removed while hot.
Hot Split transfers are popular with our clients who want vibrant colour but also a soft feel to the transfer suitable for everyday wear.
This type of transfer is ideal for designs that require a vintage look or a 'distressed' style. It is equally at home with bright, cartoon style designs.
Should I use them?
Hot Split Transfers are a popular choice of transfer. The backing must be removed while hot and so a little bit of practice is necessary with these transfers. The end result, although not quite as bright on dark garments or as detailed as standard plastisol, is a light, soft feel suitable for everyday wear.
Hot Split is very versatile and is popular with clients seeking a vintage look or a 'distressed' style. It has also proved very successful at producing bright, cartoon style designs.
