How to Choose Full Color Digital Transfers from CAD-PRINTZ

The CAD-PRINTZ® line of full color digital transfers are an excellent alternative to screen printing when a customer presents a logo with too many colors or gradients to get a quality result. When embroidery is a budget concern, or won’t give your customer the detailed logo they want, CAD-PRINTZ® offers twill fabric transfers to give you, and your customers, solutions.

Because of the increased demand for full color, detailed left chest logos on corporate and other apparel in a variety of fabrics, full color digital transfers are a must-have for any decorator. With so many heat transfer mediums, it’s important to know your decorating options.

It’s easy! Just upload your artwork, we’ll print and cut your full color digital logo and send it to you ready to heat apply. All you need is a heat press.

SuperTEK® Clear Gloss – With great stretch and a low application temperature, this media is made for printing vibrant, gloss-look designs on heat sensitive performance materials like moisture wicking polyester and Lycra®/spandex. For use on white or light colored fabrics.

SuperTEK® Matte Clear – This transfer type has the same features as SuperTEK™ Clear Gloss but gives the matte finish some customers prefer. It’s also useful for tone on tone effects on other materials, like cotton and low polyester/cotton blends.

SuperTEK® Opaque – This medium also works well for heat sensitive fabrics, even leather, but is what you need when working with dark colored fabrics.

Express Print® – This transfer type is a go-to material for straightforward jobs with standard fabrics like cotton and low polyester/cotton blends. It’s cost-effective with a semi-matte, high quality finish your customers want.

CAD-PRINTZ® Glitter Flake™ – Another special effect material your customers will love. Full color glitter designs perfect for light or dark colored cotton, polyester, and Lycra®/spandex.

SuperTEK® Sublistop™ – If dye migration is a concern, this medium is a good choice. The ONYX STiX2 adhesive with a charcoal lining inhibits sublimated dyes from bleeding through.

Learn more about the causes and solutions for dye migration with the Dye Migration Handbook.

CAD-PRINTZ® Texture-TWILL™ – This media gives you a multi-layered twill look in just one layer. Applies on dark or light colored cotton and polyester with only a heat press. For an applique look, or for permanent application on other materials, finish with embroidery.

CAD-PRINTZ® Perma-TWILL™ – Use when you need an embroidered look with just a heat press. For light or dark colored fabrics like cotton, polyester, poly/cotton blends, poly foam caps and fleece.

CAD-PRINTZ® Sublimation Transfers – Using sublimation technology, this transfer uses sublimation inks that, with heat and pressure, are converted from a solid to a gas. All without the expense of a sublimation printer. The dyes are embedded in the actual fabric giving a soft finish. This technology is best on white 100% polyester garments.
