Two Categories of Transfers

Hot Peel

Hot Peel transfers are a popular type of transfer process which are especially suited for printing dark on light 50/50 and Cotton garments. Hot Peel transfers provide a soft hand feel and up to 7 colors may be registered but-to-but and printed. Depending on the opacity of the ink color, Hot Peel transfers can also be printed on dark garments. Because Hot Peel transfers require Heavy Pressure, Temperature of 375 degrees and a 15 second press time, they require a High Quality Heat Transfer Machine for proper application. We suggest the CHE-2400Q or CHE-2800Q HTMs sold at First Edition Screen printing and manufactured by Cliff Hix.

EZ-ONs Low Temp

 Versatile heat transfer with excellent coverage and ability to show detail.  Applies at a low temp for specialty fabrics.  Ideal for polyester garments. 1-3 colors printed with backer available in stock colors (see EZ-Ons color chart). Transfers onto Polyester at 315 degrees for 7 seconds at medium-heavy pressure. Peel immediately. To transfer onto Cotton, apply at 350 degrees for 10 seconds at medium-heavy pressure. Peel immediately.


For Your Information

Hot Peel Transfers are the better choice when printing dark onto light garments or when garment dye sublimation is not an issue.

EZ-ONs Low Temp Transfers should be your choice when you are applying onto polyester garments that require a lower temperature.

 Note: First Edition Hot Split, and Ez-On transfers will NOT adhere to nylon or other weather resistant, coated fabrics.
