Following a similar process to screen printing with the use of a meshed screen, your graphics are printed onto a heat transferable paper. An adhesive powder is added to the final colour to Crystallise the ink and allow for Application onto your medium.
Each Colour of your design is printed separately on individual screens therefore resulting in a single or multicoloured print.
All Multi-Colour prints require a Clear adhesive ink to bind those colours together the adhesive powder is added to this clear adhesive.
Most single color prints can have the adhesive powder applied directly and does not require the Clear adhesive ink. Colours will need to be separated and printed individually and vectored artwork is by far the best and easiest artwork to work with.
