Certain decorating techniques involve heat press work.
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
Vinyl Names and Numbers are the best solution for individually customized sports uniforms.
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
For smaller 1-2 color orders custom cut heat applied vinyl can be a more affordable option than screen printing.
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 is a screen printing add-on service that results in a mirrored shiny finish which far surpasses the brilliance of metallic inks.
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
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
After being printed and cured the screen print is individually heat pressed using a Teflon coated sheet. . .
