Heat Pressing

Heat Pressing is the process of applying heat-activated materials to apparel. By applying heavy pressure and high temperatures, the design is permanently attached to the apparel. We offer Heat Transfer Vinyl for single color applications and Full Color Digital Heat Transfers for multi-color images.
