Transfer Printing was first used on tea sets in the United Kingdom.
The History of Heat Transfers
The technique of Heat Transfer printing first started in England during the 1700s, when John Sadler and Guy Green began to use transfer printing for ceramic based products such as ceramic tiles and tea pots.
Sadler and Green first chose to print on tiles as the flat tiles were easier to print on the curvature of ceramic tea ware. The prints were created by creating a image on a tissue like paper, which was placed on a tile during the “firing process”.
The firing process would burn off the paper while leaving the ink print on the tile or teapot. The ceramic object would then receive a glazed coating that would provide a glossy protective coating over the image.
Sadler founded the Sato Corporation which continued to advance the Transfer technology.
What is Heat Transfer (Vinyl Printing)?
The heat transfer process is a two-stage process that involves (1) creating a negative image, that will be pressed onto a garment and (2) the actual heating and pressing of a transfer image onto the garment. Today’s modern form of heat transfer printing includes methods and techniques from both dye and direct to garment printing.
Computers do most of the work during the design process as they are used to calculate the different amounts of ink and color that will be used to create the images. Computers will also create a mirrored-negative that will then be pressed onto a target garment.
Production defects are minimized with the computer aided process as users are able to view the print as a computer-generated image before the actual printing begins.
Images generated by the computer are printed onto a transfer paper, where the papers only purpose is to “hold” the image until it is placed on the target object (clothing, ceramic mug, etc..). The positioned image is then heated and pressed onto the target object and allowed to cool.

Heat Transfer PRINTING PROCESS
Heat Transfer printing is the most popular method for printing low volume t shirts and mugs.
Create Your Design
Image quality is the heart of a great t shirt, you can either use an image that you created or request one of our designers to create an professionally designed image for you.
Computers help us generate the physical image that will be transferred onto your t-shirt or coffee mug, the computer will perform all of the calculations for blending inks and replicating the design.
Creating the Transfer
The image transfer is created using a special printer that works with our computer software to create a “negative” image that will be pressed onto the target object using heat and pressure.
Transfer the Image
Heat Press equipment are used to transfer the image onto the target object (usually a t-shirt or mug). We use a specially designed press that helps insure both quality and efficiency.
Types of Heat Transfer printing
The Heat Transfer process can be separated into three different types of printing. For the benefit of clients, we present an understanding of some of the finer details of each process.
This type of heat transfer printing works great on dry fit, microfiber, jersey, polyester and quick dry t-shirts. It is interesting to point out that it is the sublimation printing method that is often used to print images and logos on coated mugs and plates that are seen in gift shops. The heat transfer images are transferred to t-shirts while using high temperatures and a steady pressure. The process usually only takes about one minute. When completed, the t-shirt will have a permanent, vivid image that has a soft cotton like feel.
This is a different type of heat transfer technique that works well on almost any fabric including cotton and polyester. Like the sublimation printing, transfer printing uses a special type of ink and transfer paper. It is interesting to point out that this method has two different types of transfer paper. One is for light coloured white t-shirts, and the other for dark and black coloured t-shirts.
The vinyl printing process only uses one colour and is recommended for Flock, PU, Glitter, Glow in Dark, Reflective and Hologram materials. Vinyl printing works well on many different types of fabrics.
