Plastisol heat transfers are fairly simple to make using your existing screen printing equipment and a few inexpensive supplies. These consist of designs printed with plastisol ink on special release paper, then partially cured in a curing oven. This paper print is then transferred to a garment using a heat transfer press. Hot-split (hot-peel) and cold-peel transfers (see sidebar for definitions) are used for a variety of job orders — this photo lesson gives the basics of successful plastisol transfer printing.
