Making custom T shirts is a time-honored past time. It can be expensive so many look for a more cost-effective way of doing so. Customers seem to gravitate to T shirt heat transfers as they are fast and can result in a unique garment just for them.

Screen printing is fast, but the traditional methods are often expensive. At an event such as a fair or festival, you want something efficient while being low cost. The process is also great for making shirts on site. For companies there are several other advantages as the latest type of heat transfer gives organizations leeway should their event not turn out as successful.

These are other benefits your company might see.

* The ability to quickly serve customers who order repeatedly, but in small quantities.
* A range of sizes, colors, and designs selectable on-site and immediately available.
* If you don’t meet sales goals, unused blanks can be sent back to the vendor. This is far less of a loss than losing out with unsold, traditionally screen printed, inventory.
* Turn-around times are much faster.
* No garments have to be re-processed as the new method is effective the first time.
* No setup charges need to be applied. The process is cheaper than direct screen printing.
