Printable heat transfer vinyl (HTV) is a special type of vinyl film used for decorating t-shirts, apparel, and other fabric items. It can be printed on using a variety of printing technologies including solvent, eco-solvent, sublimation, latex, and water-based printers. Once printed, the vinyl is pressed onto the t-shirt or fabric using a heat press. It comes in a variety of finishes, such as matte, semi-gloss, gloss, and glitter, and allows for more intricate designs to be created with full-color graphics and gradients, unlike traditional solid-color HTV.
Printable HTV is popular among hobbyists and small business owners who create custom apparel and accessories. It provides a cost-effective and convenient solution for producing small runs of personalized items without the need for expensive screen printing equipment. With its versatility and ease of use, printable HTV is a great option for anyone looking to add unique designs to fabric items.
