Heat Transfer Ink

Heat Transfer ink (Rotary or Screen ink) was designed for a direct print to garment process which completely eliminates fabric labels. It is recommended for undershirts, sport shirts, or any garment that will undergo constant stretching. Heat transfer ink can be used on all types of fabrics commonly used in the label industry. Both types of ink can be used to print either powder or screen able liquid glue. Our rotary printing ink can be printed on a release paper or polyester film carrier using standard rotary printing methods. The powder glue can even be applied while the ink is wet, and will still in turn fuse the glue, and ink together to produce a halo free image on the transfer label.

Color matching is available upon request.

*Ink is available in 5 Kg or 1 Kg containers.
