If you have been in the printing industries for quite some time now, you must be familiar with the heat transfer printing technique using heat transfer papers which is an indirect printing method where inks are printed on to transfer paper, dried, then transferred using a heat press machine on to garment of choice.
There are two types of transfer papers which are light based transfer paper and dark based transfer paper. If you are new to this business however, read the differences between those two types of papers here.
Heat transfers using the heat transfer printing techniques are produced in two methods known as Hot Peel and Cold Peel. Are you familiar with Hot Peel and Cold Peel transfer papers?
The hot peel method is when the transfer paper is peeled off immediately while the transferred design is still hot. When the paper is peeled hot, a portion of ink remains on the paper and the rest on the fabric. Hot transfers feels just like screen prints, it offers a softer hand effect. The colour transfer is more vivid if it is used with pigment inks.
Whereas the cold peel method is when the transfer paper is allowed to cool down completely after the transfer is applied. Then later after it has cooled down completely, the transfer paper will be removed. This method leaves a semi-glossy, rubbery feel to the print.
To ensure that the transferred design is durable, when washing the garments turn it inside out and wash using a mild detergent on cold water setting. Do not use bleach and do not iron directly on the transferred designs.
