Digi-Print Sportsfilm is a PVC-free, digital transfer process which offers full-colour (CMYK) custom heat transfers from as little as 10 heat transfers which allows you to produce vivid, durable heat transfers which are also lightweight at only 85 microns thick.
Digi-Print Sportsfilm Leadtimes
Our Digi-Print Sportsfilm custom heat transfers are manufactured in the UK and are usually despatched within TWO working days of confirmation of the artwork and colour references.
With a very soft finish and the ability to stick to even the toughest of garment fabrics, such as Lycra®/spandex and nylon, in addition to standard fabrics such as cotton and polyester, it's perfect for workwear, sportswear and leisurewear requirements.
Note: Due to the production process, we have to add a 2mm keyline around the intended design, although this can be coloured to match closely to the garment. Alternatively, we can add a "bleed edge" if the design allows.
Due to the combination of fabrics, weaves, and dyes used in the textile industry, testing is pertinent - We offer free samples of all of our custom heat transfers for testing purposes.

For full-colour, photo-quality heat transfer processes, such as Digi-Print Sportsfilm, we would require a raster file that is at least 300dpi at the size required and produced using CMYK colours. Alternatively, we could work from a vector file (with text saved as outlines) with colours based on CMYK colour values.
