Heat transfer vinyl 

 BC ski team uniform

Heat Transfer Vinyl is a way of transferring either single or multicolor images onto garments.

Blackfish Clothing prints your graphic image onto the vinyl using a specialised printer and then cuts it out automatically.   It then often needs 'picking' whereby un-needed islands of vinyl are removed.

The finished vinyl is heat-pressed onto your chosen garments in the agreed location.


Products for heat transfer vinyl

Heat transfer vinyl is used on products like shirts, hats, tote bags, jackets and sports-wear.

Heat Transfer Vinyl must be used on products that can take the heat and pressure necessary to transfer the vinyl onto the substrate.  Fabrics such as cotton, cotton/poly blends, polyester, and canvas work well with heat transfer vinyl.

Unique effects can be achieved by mixing different types of heat transfer vinyl on the same substrate.
