How to transfer flat-heat transfer products to clothes?

What preparations are needed to transfer flat heat transfer products to clothes?

Transferring flat heat transfer products to clothing requires some specific steps and equipment. The following is the general production process:

  • Design Preparation: Use graphic design software to create or select a design suitable for the garment. Make sure the design is sized and proportioned appropriately for your clothing.
  • Design Preparation: Use graphic design software to create or select a design suitable for the garment. Make sure the design is sized and proportioned appropriately for your clothing.
  • Print the design: Print the design onto specialized heat transfer paper using a printer and ink specifically designed for heat transfer. Make sure to choose heat transfer paper that is suitable for clothing.
  • Cutting design: According to the shape and size of the clothing, the design is cut to ensure that it fits the surface of the clothing.
  • Preheat the heat transfer machine: Preheat the heat transfer machine to the appropriate temperature, usually set according to the heat transfer paper used and the material of the clothing.
  • Positioning the design: Place the cut-out design on the pre-positioned area of the garment. Use the positioning capabilities of your thermal transfer machine to ensure accurate alignment of your design.
  • Heat transfer: Place the garment with the design in a heat transfer machine, applying the appropriate temperature and pressure. This will cause the transfer agent on the transfer paper to transfer to the surface of the garment.
  • Cooling and Peeling: After the thermal transfer is complete, wait for the garment to cool. Once cool, easily peel off the transfer paper, leaving the design printed on the garment.
  • Inspection and Quality Control: Finished products are inspected to ensure clear designs, bright colors, and intact edges. Quality control steps are performed to ensure that each flat thermal transfer product meets standards.
  • Fixed Design: Sometimes, to ensure the durability of your transfer, further processing, such as baking or the use of a special coating, may be required.

Please note that specific steps and parameters may vary depending on the thermal transfer equipment and materials used. Before mass production, it is best to conduct some small-scale experiments to ensure the stability of the production process and the consistency of the printing effect.
