HOTS custom heat transfers are a hot-split plastisol custom heat transfer which offers a soft-hand finish and is extremely close to the finish of a traditional silk screen printed design onto DARK fabrics, whilst offering excellent opacity and durability.
HOTS (Hot-Split Plastisol) Leadtimes
Our HOTS custom heat transfers are manufactured in the UK and are usually despatched within TWO working days of confirmation of the artwork and colour references.
This advanced inks used to produce HOTS transfers allows vibrant, opaque colours to be applied straight onto Dark garments - The finished product is soft to the touch and the design can contain up to seven different colours, due to the production process.
It allows the garment to have the look and feel of a traditional screen print design, with the added benefit of allowing you to print on demand.
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 HOTS, 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.
