Iron On Transfers… Light Transfers Vs. Dark Transfers

Iron on transfers… the age old question, do I need light transfer paper or dark transfer paper?

Customised Iron on Transfers are a great way to personalise you’re clothing for a very low cost and thy are ideal for short term use garments such as promo tshirts, stag do tshirts, hen do tshirts and many other uses!

Now, there are two very different types of iron on transfers that we offer:
1) Light garment iron on transfers – these are for use only on white or very pale fabrics. They are printed with a clear filmy background, and they leave a gerat result on white or pale pastel colour garments.

These are not for use on colour or black tees.

2) Dark garment iron on transfers – these can be used on any colour tshirt or garment. They are printed with a default white background behind your design, but if you want the backgroind to be a different colour, simply use the “background colour” tab on the design editor to change this.

The white (or other colour of your choice) background acts as a block out and means that you can apply these to any colour of fabric, and they will still show up very well.

 Both transfer types are applied differently, so if you order both kinds please make sure to read each instruction flyer separately as they will not be applied the same way. All instructions are available on our website as a digital copy, so feel free to use these if you prefer.

Remember, if you are looking for a more durable and permanent garment printing solution, check out our vinyl transfers which you can apply at home, or use out garment designer to create your own professionally printed clothing. We print on to a wide range of quality garments using industry leading DTG print technology.

For any information on what would work best for you please contact us, or if you already know what you need, its time to get designing…
