HOTS (Hot-Split Plastisol) Overview

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 generic stock samples of all of our custom heat transfers for testing purposes and would be happy to send them out for you to test.

Minimum order quantity: 25 transfers.

Artwork Requirements

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.
