If you want your product decoration to catch the eye of consumers, you need to be sure that it is applied using the right type of image transfer method. There are a number of processes that can be used for this purpose, and digital heat transfer and inkjet photo transfers are two common options. So how do you decide between them? And how do you know which is best for your project? If you want a finished product that is beautiful and vibrant while also being produced affordably and efficiently, digital heat transfer is the best choice.
How do inkjet photo transfers work?
Inkjet photo transfers are similar to the screen printed transfer process. Essentially, your image or logo is printed via an inkjet transfer onto a special kind of transfer paper. Using pressure and heat, the image is then transferred from the paper to your object. Inkjet digital transfers are generally used for fabric, wood, and paper.
What makes digital heat transfer a better option for my image transfer needs?
If you are looking for affordability, beauty, and efficiency, then digital heat transfer is the best method, hands-down. This is because digital heat transfer creates photo-quality images that are rendered in full-color, creating a crisp and clear picture. Because the process is fully digital, you can also include multiple images in the same run, offering an affordable option for even short runs.
