Gloss Plastisol gives a retail-quality, glossy appearance to the finished design, making it a great choice for many of our customers, and is suitable for both dark and light fabrics.
Gloss Plastisol Leadtimes
Our Gloss Plastisol custom heat transfers are manufactured in the UK and are usually despatched within TWO working days of confirmation of the artwork and colour references.
A very popular process, particularly within the retail fashion and childrenswear markets, it's extremely versatile as it can be combined with spot-colour (Polytran/Plastisol), full-colour (lithographic) or Glow-in-the-Dark custom heat transfers to produce a high quality gloss finish, as opposed to a standard, matt finish.
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 block-colour, screen-based heat transfer processes, such as Gloss Plastisol, we would require a vector file (with text saved as outlines), along with Pantone colour references for the specific spot colours required. If you don't have access to Pantone colour charts, we can help you to choose the correct colours for your design. In addition, we can also arrange for artwork to be redrawn if necessary.
