Supacolour Transfer &
Vinyl Heat Transfers 

Transcreens/Heat Transfer

Your logo's are screenprinted in reverse onto a transfer paper that has a wax coating, this allows the print to transfer onto the garments once heat pressed, then we peel the paper off to reveal the finished print. Transcreens are very strong & Durable, they are great for workwear, headwear & wet weather gear.


Supacolour Heat Transfer

Supacolour is a game-changer in the digital heat transfer world. It’s a technologically innovative way to produce digital transfers, it uses a hybrid of water-based and digital inks to give a print with amazing colour brightness and vibrancy, tonal gradients and the ability to render photo-real images. It also has a much softer feel than traditional digital transfers or vinyl transfers.

With Supacolour, you have the ability to print very fine lines and detail that would be difficult with traditional digital transfers. This allows us to replicate your logo to a higher finish without the need for any additional block colours underneath to attain the same level of detail.

Another great thing about Supacolour, there are no colour limitations, you can have as many colours in your artwork as you like and it doesn’t affect the price. There is a minimum order quantity of 20 units and we price Supacolour according to the size of the artwork e.g. 60mm x 60mm, 100mm x 100mm, A5, A4 and A3.

Vinyl Heat Transfer

Vinyl heat transfers are logos or text, that are contour cut in a plotter/cutter. We use polyester sheets that have a glue backing that melts when heat pressed.

These sheets come in a wide range of colours, this heat transfer method is perfect for one off single colour prints, individual names/team names & numbers.
