  • HTV is a vinyl used to decorate apparel, bags, and other soft goods with a press using high heat and pressure to adhere it.

  • HTV and Adhesive Vinyl are both cut with a vinyl cutting machine, and then use a process called "weeding" before they are ready for use. Read more about the processes in future blog posts.

BEST TIME TO USE IT:
When you're wanting a small batch of apparel, an individual shirt, a car or window decal, or something of that nature.

Sublimation

graphic tee

What is it?

  • Sublimation printing is a digital printing process that uses heat and pressure to transfer dye onto different materials.

  • The dye is printed on a special transfer paper using sublimation inks, which are also known as disperse dyes, then pressed on the product with a heat press, causing the dye to turn into a gas and penetrating the product. (Can only be done on light colors)

  • This results in full-color, high-resolution images that are long-lasting and vibrant. (Best on at least 50% polyester tees or higher, and sublimation coated products)

  • No white can be printed using this method.

BEST TIME TO USE IT:
When using light colored shirts, bleached shirts, etc.
