1. What is Digital Heat Transfer Print (DHTP)?
Digital Heat Transfer Printing (DHTP) is the process of printing images and transfer onto fabrics and garments. Once the transfer was been printed, cut and weeded, it is then pressed with heat to permanently attach the image to your garment.
DHTP is an ideal Solution for small run full colour printing, particularly for logos featured fine details, vibrant colour and complex visual effect, which are difficult and expensive to be embodied by other decoration method such as Embroidery or Screen Printing.
DHTP can be applied on almost all Uniforms, Caps, Bags and other promotional products, either light colour or dark colour, either cotton or synthetic fabrics, either stretchy or non stretchy fabrics.
2. The Process of Digital Heat Transfer Print (DHTP)
Step 1. Design
Prepare the design on Computer by using Graphic Processing Software such as Illustrator.
Step 2. Print/Cut
Upload the file to the Print/Cut machine, which will print and cut out the desired graphic on special heat transfer media using solvent ink.
Step 3. Transfer
The printed graphic is to be transferred from the media to the apparel when pressed with heat, in which process a heat press machine will be needed to transfer the graphic from one surface to another.
