Stickers have developed for many years. Recently, customizing items have came under the spotlights. Heat transfer sticker allows you to create custom fabric designs, such as the t-shirt with the design, color you choose. We’ve created an in depth guide to what Heat Transfer Sticker is and how you can use it on your next project.
Heat Transfer Paper
Just like its name, the paper has special heat transfer technology that uses heat to fuse your printed design to your fabric by pressing it with a heat press or hand iron. You only need a thermal transfer printer, heat transfer paper. Then you can create your own design. Here's a video help you learn more about how does the thermal transfer printer work.
What can you design?
All of the images, quotes, names you can use to create your design. You can put your heat transfer paper, stickers on anything made of fabric, including T-shirts, socks, pants, and so on. If you are a huge sports fan, you can create your T-shirt with your favorite players or teams. If you like movies or TV shows, you can also print your favorite characters or quotes.
What's the best type of fabric to use?
You need to transfer onto a 100%-natural fibers-fabric, such as silk and cotton. Usually, if you want to have a T-shirt with your own design, find a white cotton shirt. The heat transfer paper will NOT work well on polyester fabrics or fabrics with stretchy content, like lycra or spandex blends. Be sure to pre-wash your fabric before use to avoid any stretching once the transfer is fused on.
