CDigital is the leader in digital heat transfers! Our print technology is by far the most cost effective full color print solution in the industry.
The product decoration industry is riddled with options – screen printing, pad printing, hot stamping, and digital heat transfers. Each has its own unique benefits, but only one constantly outperforms the rest: Digital Heat Transfers.
How Digital Heat Transfers Work
The Design Phase
It all starts with the design, and if the name didn’t give it away, digital heat transfers are designed and printed digitally.
“There are none of the traditional set-up requirements or costs,” explains Matt Regan, senior vice president for CDigital, formerly trademarked as Grafixx.
You simply send your image to CDigital, where we verify the image will print correctly then send it to be printed on one of our high quality digital presses. It’s that simple. And because it is a digital process, variable data, such as barcodes, text, or numbers, can be incorporated into each individual transfer.
Moving to the Printers
Once the file is verified by the customer, the real fun can begin. The image is sent to a high speed digital printer, where a five-color dry toner image is printed on the underside of a polyester film. The underside of this film is then coated in an appropriate adhesive depending on the substrate or product. The film is then wound onto cores, and packaged for shipment.
Digital heat transfers are printed using a completely dry process, meaning they are ready for shipping immediately after printing.
Once your shipment arrives, you are ready to immediately begin the application process. Digital transfers can be applied using a large selection of conventional hot stamp and heat transfer equipment. Perhaps best of all, digital heat transfers are fully cured upon application, on any plastic, and most metal products, instantly ready for shipping after decoration. With other decorating technologies, inks need to be cured,, solvents must be flamed off. This not only costs you time and money, it also adds to production turn times.
