It is a product intended for the market of manufacturers and sellers of workwear, but it has also found its application successfully in the advertising market. This enables you to label clothing and other textile products extremely quickly and inexpensively.
The economical plastisol transfer is also a plastisol heat transfer, with the only difference that its production is economically optimized so that it is as cheap as possible, but at the same time offers the same highest transmission quality.
By optimizing the production process, the costs could be significantly reduced and, above all, the waiting time for production could be measurably reduced. Most economic transfer orders (over 90%) are processed within 24 hours (* for orders received by 10:30 a.m.). The time of such an implementation is often not attainable even for companies with their own print shops.
Economic heat transfer is a product that contradicts the myth that transfer is more expensive than direct screen printing. This can be many times cheaper for successively implemented orders. Let's take the popular SECURITY print as an example. The average price for single-color screen printing is PLN 1.50 - when executing the same order with economical thermal transfer PLUS it is only PLN 0.22 * (* for a print of 300 x 50 mm - 9 uses per sheet - applies to printing on paper for orders over 100 sheets).
Its biggest advantage over screen printing is the ability to print several different logos on the same sheet, which allows not only to save on the print itself, but also on the costs of preparation for printing (so-called matrices). While the transfer allows you to make many logotypes using one matrix, direct screen printing very often requires the preparation of matrices separately for each logotype.
The economical plastisol transfer is sold on sheets. This means that the size of the logo, the surface coverage or the complexity of the design are not important for the evaluation process. Regardless of whether the sheet fits a large logo or a multiple of the smaller logo or whether the sheet is covered with many different logos - the price always remains the same.
The surprisingly low price does not mean inferior quality
The quality of the printed details exceeds the direct screen printing, the transfer opacity is often better than the direct screen printing, the edges of thermal transfer prints are much sharper and the printed details can be smaller (even 0.2 mm thick elements can be legible). We use materials from leading manufacturers of the highest quality to manufacture our transfers.
The highest quality materials used in production also guarantee comparable screen printing durability and wash resistance. The recommended washing temperature is 40 °C, but even washing at 60 °C does not affect the durability of the print. Please note that the correct application parameters also affect the durability of the printouts. For this reason, each package of thermal transfers that we send is labeled with a label that defines in a simple and legible manner how it is used and maintained.
Economic heat transfer is currently available in two colors: black and white.
Soon the color palette will be richer with the following colors:
The economical plastisol transfer is divided into:
- economic transfer Economic heat transfer - PET film carrier - transparent film for ease of application.
Folia z warstwą Easy Release Liner – ułatwiająca zrywanie. folie zrywamy na zimno (cold peal). Wykończenie transferu po aplikacji w lekkim połysku (semi glossy) daje dobre odwzorowanie barw w porównaniu z próbnikiem PMS solid coated. Nośnik foliowy jest bardziej odporny na wahania wilgotności powietrza, co pozytywnie wpływa na przechowywanie transferów przed aplikacją (nadruki, rzadziej się odrywają od nośnika przy długoterminowym składowaniu) *przeczytaj więcej o składowaniu termotransferów w naszym dziale FAQ.
- economic heat transfer plus - paper backing - Tullis Russell CP100 and Tullis Russell HS Premium
Tullis Russell CP100 to nośnik papierowy o gramaturze ok 100g i gładkiej powierzchni i umiarkowanie białej barwie. Barwa papieru (lekko kremowa) powoduje że białe nadruki są dobrze widoczne na nośniku. Struktura papieru jest nieznacznie przezroczysta – pozwala widzieć wydruk termotransferowy przez papier od niezadrukowanej strony – co ułatwia pozycjonowanie. Transfery w kolorach są dobrze widoczne, transfery białe są mało widoczne. Transfery po aplikacji w lekkim połysku (semi glossy). Papier zrywany na zimno. Nośnik najbardziej popularny, wykorzystywany do druku w przypadku niedoprecyzowania innego nośnika.
Tullis Russell HS Premium is a paper medium with a weight of approx. 90 g, a chalk finish and a light cream color. The relatively high transparency of the paper (the transfer is clearly visible from the unprinted side) facilitates precise application. HS paper is hot picking paper - literally when you open the press. This is HOT PEAL paper (not HOT Split). This means that all of the paint deposit is transferred to clothing. After the carrier has been torn off, no paint residues should be visible. This carrier is perfect for attaching clothing labels to hard-to-reach places where the fabric has an irregular shape, or near seams and zippers. With this medium you can reduce the application time by up to half. Clothing with welded transfers (hot-picked carrier) can be sent for packaging immediately. Transfers outside the press do not need to be cooled.
Economical plastisol transfer is printed in one color only, which, despite the use of thick ink deposits, can change the color of the transfer when applied to dark substrates (especially light colors). This is a natural phenomenon caused by the effect of the fabric color on the change in the reflected light spectrum. If the color of the transfer is unacceptable after application, a white vacuum must be used. If you want to know more, read the product description: Plastisol heat transfer.
Economic transfers are completed with a layer of polyester powder adhesive. This adhesive is the most universal on various substrates. It can be successfully used on cotton and polyester fabrics and their blends, nylon (e.g. umbrellas), cotton raw material. The low melting point enables application to temperature sensitive substrates such as polypropylene bags (not woven), DUPONT Tyvec ® fabrics and their derivatives, some felt and even PVC coated fabrics. Unfortunately, the polyester adhesive has a limited elasticity and does not return to its original shape after stretching. Economical transfer to knitwear welded and increased elasticity can tend to crack or wrinkle the surface.
It is used in a very wide range of textile products as above, it is an alternative or addition to direct screen printing at a relatively lower price. The product is ideal for quick marketing campaigns. It becomes successful for marking products like:
- wigofilowe / nonwoven bags
- cotton bags
- Felt products
- Tyvek ® materials
Economic heat transfer does not have a printed migration blocker layer, which means that prints on some polyester or freeze-dyed substrates can change color. The color change consists in penetrating the structure of the dye transfer from the substrate (fabric / knitwear). This changes the color of the transfer itself, e.g. For example, the white print on the red t-shirt turns pink. To prevent this phenomenon, use a heat transfer with a migration blocker.

To make communication easier and to avoid obvious mistakes when preparing your projects for printing, we have prepared some tips for you on how to properly prepare the composition of the model.
Projects should be prepared for mockups on the Downloads tab, They are available for all common graphics programs.
- The white field is a sheet area of 500 x 350 mm on which your project will be printed.
- The blue field which is delimited by the red dashed line is a printable area of 485 x 320 mm. Graphics should be placed here. Do not exceed this field - this will prevent the printed graphics from being cut or damaged by mechanical elements during the printing process.
- A mirror image is required for all graphics;
- The recommended thinnest element (Line spacing) should not be less than 0.2 mm.
- The recommended indentation in the graph (Line spacing) should not be less than 0.5 mm.
The recommended line and line sizes may be smaller, but are unlikely to print or flood. We also pay attention to the correct filling of the field ORDER DETAILS. This enables a controlled process of the production process.
Graphics should be created as spot elements with a fill, die Kontur zu verwenden. Regardless of the color of the graphics transfer itself, it should be created as a CMYK 0: 0: 0: 100 color. Color information should be included in the field: ORDER DETAILS
Care should be taken to prepare the projects correctly - they are not checked in terms of content, but only in terms of printability. We are not responsible for language errors, graphic defects, errors (errors) that result from file conversions between versions. To avoid this, we recommend sending an open (editable file) and a visualization in a PDF file.
It is possible to prepare tonally printed designs. If you use solid colors and print with dots of different intensities, you can simulate color differences. You can also use this technique to print complex multi-color graphics in one color. Example below. For this type of graphics, the graphics resolution should not be less than 300 dpi. Very light tones of 0-10% may not be printed, and overly dark tones of 90-100% may be flooded.
