What Is? – The difference between Heat Transfers and Screen Printing

The difference between heat transfers and designs printed with a print screen is in the application process. Heat transfers are pre-printed and are applied to cloth goods, typically T-shirts, with a heat press.

Screen printed transfers use the same ink as direct printing but rather than printing directly onto the garment it is printed onto transfer paper, and is designed to give the look and feel of direct printing.Transfers are a great choice for print-on-demand items and low quantities (under 30), such as those used for sports teams and small crews for site.

Items decorated with a print screen, through a colour separation process and then heat bonded via an oven, are printed directly onto the garment.

Direct screen printing requires press and screen set-ups for each job, and requires multiple units (generally 50 +) to be cost effective, however, it can be argued that the finish is of superior quality.

Direct screen printing has traditionally enjoyed superior durability, but with improvements in heat transfer machines and materials, modern screen printed transfers can last just as long with proper application.
