Busting a few myths on vinyl transfer vs screen print…

Which option you choose will depend on several factors and honestly, there isn’t a single right answer. Vinyl transfers are great for short runs and for certain types of material. They also give a flatter finish than a screen print.

Screen print is generally the preferred option for longer runs and has a very slightly raised finish as the ink sits on top of the material rather than being pressed into it.

Some people will choose vinyl transfers because they can be free from PVC, others will choose screen prints because they can have zero wastage. There are also different types of finishes available for each.
