Plastisol Transfers | Custom-Made in The UK

Plastisol is a well-established process for block-colour heat transfers for high and low volume on a wide range of fabrics, including cotton, polyester, poly-cotton blends and more – It’s one of our most versatile systems for application onto standard fabrics, and Glitter can also be incorporated to add an extra dimension.

Plastisol Transfers Overview

Plastisol custom heat transfers can also be applied to more advanced fabrics, such as Neoprene and some nylons to allow you to apply onto items such as drawstring bags, tents and CD holders.  Free samples are available for testing purposes, or we also offer a free fabric testing service upon request.

For application onto dark garments, we recommend Polytran custom transfers as these are powdered Plastisol heat transfers which enhances the opacity of the designs to make them more suitable.

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.

 

Production Leadtimes: Plastisol Heat Transfers

Our 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.

 

Artwork Requirements

For block-colour, screen-based heat transfer processes, such as Plastisol, we would require a vector file (with any text saved as outlines), along with Pantone colour references for specific spot colours. If you don’t have access to Pantone colour charts or aren’t able to provide the artwork in the correct format, we can also help you to choose the correct colours for your design and arrange for artwork to be redrawn, although charges for redrawing may be applicable.
