Digi-Print SuperTEK SubliStop is an Öko-Tex® compliant, PVC-free, lightweight, stretchy digital heat transfer process which is can be easily applied onto a wide range of light or dark-coloured fabrics and is specifically designed to prevent polyester dye migration, thanks to ONYX STiX2™ - This innovative new adhesive features a charcoal-based lining which effectively prevents sublimated dyes from bleeding through the garment and into the design.
Digi-Print SuperTEK SubliStop Leadtimes
Our SuperTEK SubliStop 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 te ability to stick to even the toughest of garment fabrics, such as Lycra®/spandex and nylon, it's great for workwear, sportswear and leisurewear requirements - It has excellent stretch and recovery, and applies to even the hardest-to-decorate materials without leaving scorch marks, due to it's low-temperature application.
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 SuperTEK Subli-Stop, 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.
