Heat press services will add at least a day to our standard turnaround time. Columbus Custom Tees offers the following heat press services:

Names and Numbers

Application:
Vinyl Names and Numbers are the best solution for individually customized sports uniforms.

The Process:
After you approve the art proof our artist lays out all of the names and/or numbers in a plotter file. Heat applied vinyl comes on a roll of carrier material and is computer cut in reverse using a plotter. The unwanted vinyl is weeded out and the rest is heat pressed onto the garment. . .


Custom Cut Vinyl Application

Application:
For smaller 1-2 color orders custom cut heat applied vinyl can be a more affordable option than screen printing.

The Process:
After you approve the art proof our artist sets up a plotter file for cutting. Heat applied vinyl comes on a roll of carrier material and is computer cut in reverse using a plotter. The unwanted vinyl is weeded out and the rest is heat pressed onto the garment. . .


Foil

Application:
Foil is a screen printing add-on service that results in a mirrored shiny finish which far surpasses the brilliance of metallic inks.

The Process:
A sheet of special foil paper is heat pressed onto a screen print. When the carrier paper is removed it leaves foil stuck to the surface of the print. . .


Screen Print Heat Tap

Application: 
Heat tapping is the new best kept secret of major t-shirt retailers. Why would you want to heat tap your prints?

  • smoother feeling prints
  • softer feeling prints
  • reduced print thickness
  • sometimes adds a slight gloss
  • improves washability

The Process: 
After being printed and cured the screen print is individually heat pressed using a Teflon coated sheet. . .
