If you need pre printed heat transfer paper for image transfer to textile or other substrate we can do it professionally within hours.
You will be offered two types of printed paper (an important choice) of either textile or rigid super dry substrate paper. A textile paper is self-explanatory - you might be printing fabric for t-shirts for example. Rigid or Super Dry paper is for hard objects that accept sublimation printing. Use our online system to upload your image and size. Please double check your dimensions and paper type choice before proceeding to payment as normally your photo transfer paper will be printed within one hour of placing your order.
Transfer paper works best on white fabric, if you use an alternative fabric your colours will be impacted. The print will still transfer, however you will find that the colours are not a perfect reproduction. The white area on the transfer paper is plain, there is no ink or dye to transfer onto the material. This means that any area which you leave white on your design will appear the colour of the material that you are using.
Notes: We offer a textile transfer paper (max 159cm wide) and a hard surface transfer paper (max 109 cm width), for rigid flat surfaces.
The first step of our printing process involves printing the image onto the transfer paper. We would then use our specialist methods to print onto the fabric or material, that we need to so that we can create your product. When You order transfer paper, instead of sending it from our printers to the technicians, we roll this transfer paper up and send it to you for your fabric printing needs.
Disclaimer: As stated, our transfer paper is designed for use in a heat press only, if you choose to use it at home with an iron or an alternative press, we advise you to do so at your own risk. The conditions for perfect image transfer are delicate, and many factors need to be considered, such as fabric, temperature, pressure and positioning etc. Suffice it to say, if you're using the papers at home, you are accepting the risks that accompany it.
A note about the colours of your design on our Transfer Paper: Please be aware that your design will look slightly dull on the transfer paper. However, this is not representative of how your finished pressed fabric will look. Once the ink has been heat-transferred to your fabric the inks will brighten and match your original design. Don’t worry, your design will look great!
We recommend only using the transfer paper on fabrics that are at least 85% poly and would advise that you test temperatures before creating a garment, as different heat transfer textiles will require different temperatures.
