Heat Transfer Vinyl, or HTV for short, is a specialty vinyl that can be used on certain fabrics/materials to create designs and promotional products. It comes in a roll or sheet form with an adhesive backing so it can be cut, weeded, and placed on a substrate for heat application. Heat Transfer Vinyl is made in single colors or full colour printable and also has specialty options such as patterned, glitter, flocked, holographic, glow in the dark, reflective and 3D puff.
Sometimes garments or products come your way that are difficult to print using traditional methods such as screenprinting. Then comes, Digital Heat Transfers.

Digital Transfers are great for a range of items that have previously been difficult to print, such as:

  • Sportswear – Custom Team Names + Numbers
  • Activewear – Spandex and Nylon
  • Umbrellas
  • Compendiums and Leather Products
  • Short runs

Ideal for custom team wear or short runs, this is the perfect way to customise at a low cost.


We offer a re-labelling service that adds real value to your product by allowing you to create the full branded look for your business. Re-labelling is a great option as it allows you to add important details like your company name, website address or your own specific product text on the neck tag of your garments. With re-labelling, your customers will always know where they bought that favourite t-shirt, hoodie or polo.

Our re-labelling service is in-house which ensures a high level of quality control and quick turn around on all orders. You should allow 3-10 working days for re-labelling depending on the order size and time of year. Once your order is placed we will give you an estimate on when labelling will be completed. Please note that all re-labelling must be completed before orders are shipped.
