It’s Here! The Best, Expert Advice on Transfer Printing T-shirts


In the textile printing industry, Printsome stands out thanks to the use of tailor-made technology and marketing strategies that allow us to offer a personalised service that revolves around you, our precious customer.


Transfer printing is referred to as the technique in which you transfer an image onto the surface of a garment, permanently. The finish is similar to that other personalised printing, such as Screen Printing or Cad-Cut Vinyl, but what sets it apart is that it is exclusively the only technique to require heat to set the image. The image is first printed onto a high quality transfer paper and then heat transferred onto custom clothing.


Its high quality finish makes it ideal for custom sportswear and personalised t-shirts that have intricate designs. It is usually a slow process so it is not recommended for bulk printing, and it is not suitable for all fabrics as it requires the garments to be able to resist high temperatures.


Any questions? Printsome does not work as a regular printer, it has an agency model that allows us to assign an expert to each client to take care of their needs in a personalised way, so: Ready, set, fire your questions away! We can take it.

File Handing Tips

  • If using pixel based images, make sure the resolution is at least 300 d.p.i.
  • Adobe Photoshop (.PSD) & Illustrator (.AI) are accepted
  • If using vector graphics, please make sure all text is converted to outlines

What to avoid

  • Images from the internet, they are usually of poor quality and may even be infringing copyright laws.
  • Low resolution files, like 72 d.p.i. Original artwork with hi-res is always better!

Let’s start from the beginning, T-shirt transfer printing also known as heat transfer printing was first developed to embellish ceramics, not clothing, but nowadays it is a common technique for personalised T-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, jumpers and polo shirts and pretty much any other type of clothes you can imagine. So what is the process behind transfer printing T-shirts? You can choose any type of image, either a complex one (with lots of colours) or a simple one (with just a few colours) and this is one of the advantages of the technique. The image is printed on a special heat transfer paper and then squashed against the T-shirt or personalised hoodies using a heat press and boom! Heat transfer literally melts the image onto the fabric. T-shirt transfer printing omits any background colour leaving a very clean custom printed design that will make your competition jealous.

If you are after promotional clothing, T-shirt transfer printing is your option! full-coloured images can be printed very fast while losing none of the quality. It is also a technique that allows printing onto either dark or light garments. How? Using different types of base material depending on the colour. For example for heat transfer onto white T-shirts, the base material is transparent because it takes the white background of the T-shirt to make the colours stand out. On the other hand for black garments, the base material is thicker so that the colours don’t get affected by the darkness when transferred.

And what about the requirements for high-quality transfer printing? If you don’t want blurry prints, the most important thing here is to have an image or photograph with the best resolution. We recommend at least 300dpi resolution. Another use for transfer printing is for polo shirt printing, but using them for corporate clothing isn’t as popular as using for personalised sportswear. Sportswear printing doesn’t go farther from bold, vibrant colours, names and numbers, and that’s what this technique prints best.
