CAD-Colour Sportsfilm Printable (Express Print) is a lightweight, printable heat transfer material which is perfectly suited for printing smaller details and can be cut after a short drying time, greatly increasing profitability. With a very soft finish and the ability to stick to even the toughest of garment fabrics, such as Lycra®/spandex and nylon, it's perfect for workwear, sportswear and leisurewear requirements.
It's available at a size of 500mm wide by the roll which is 25m long. It's also available in other widths of 750mm, 1000mm and 1500mm.
