This process uses a cutting plotter to cut a digital design into vinyl. This technique is the best option for low quantity orders with basic designs. We use high-quality Cad-Cut Thermo-FILM Heat Transfer Vinyl and adhere with a commercial Hotronix Heat Press. This vinyl has a semi-gloss finish and will typically outlast the life of your t-shirt. Great for custom names and numbers. We also offer many specialty prints like glitter, metallic, and plaid.
