A New Way to Print Your Apparel

Are you an apparel company, own a small business or you are the creative type? If you answered YES, to any of these, you would be aware that t-shirt printing has existed for thousands of years, with traditional screen printing providing businesses and artists the ability to print most designs on t-shirts and other forms of apparel and fabrics.

You may also know that heat transfer printing was introduced in the 1960s. This style of digital printing has progressed from simple ‘iron ons’ to the present day, streamlined process of digital transfer.

The process of digital transfer or heat transfer printing consists of printers and designers printing a custom logo or design onto transfer paper. The colored ink is then transferred from the paper to the fabric using a combination of pressure and heat.

This type of heat transfer printing provides a fast and high-quality way to print onto apparel, including a diverse range of fabrics and apparel products.
Initially, when heat transfer printing was introduced, traditional screen printers were against this type of fast printing, seeing this process as lacking in quality and tradition.

Since the 1960s heat transfer printing has progressed at a startling rate. Today, the quality and durability of the prints have exceeded initial expectations, and the process currently produces high-quality prints at a fast rate and affordable price.


SupaColor is one of the best heat transfer options available today. A high-quality heat transfer company, who promotes fast and easy heat transfers for printing in superior, full color.

SupaColor is a durable, yet eco-friendly printing option, using water-based inks and recyclable transfer paper for their print transfers.


In the past, we know heat transfer printing was detested by screen printers, due to the durability and print quality not always being as reliable as traditionally screen printed products.

In recent times the quality of heat transfers has skyrocketed, and many screen printing companies currently collaborate with SupaColor, to provide all types of products to benefit the customer. The quality of the colors, the flexibility to produce transfers for challenging products and fabrics, and the ability to create products that would usually take longer to set up, have made SupaColor a go-to company for traditional screen printers, assisting print shops in growing their business.

Challenging products to print on are windbreakers, hats and any fabrics which do not take to traditional screen printing well. Some of the issues with printing on to these products or fabrics include the heat melting the fabric, or the shape of some products not fitting the screen printing application. Supa Color has made this challenging process possible.
