Print Solutions: Positive About Print
Over recent years, due to the boom in personalisation using HTV products onto workwear, sportswear, fashion and promotional garments, TheMagicTouch has witnessed a growing increase in the use of flock for garment decoration.
Having always been considered a more upmarket option than standard flex, the raised effect of flock is also widely compared by many to give the look and feel of embroidery. The raised transfer effect gives a quality appearance on t-shirts, hoodies, high-viz garments, polo shirts, bags, caps, jackets, sports shirts and most other cotton and polyester apparel.
The new additions take the choice of Premium Flock colours to 40, which is considered as one of the widest ranges in the UK. Available by the linear metre with a width of 500 mm, all flock products are Oeko-Tex certified against harmful substances.
The high quality flocked hot melt film on a polyester carrier has high elasticity and outstanding washing durability with fastness up to 60° C. Precise and intricate designs can be easily cut and weeded using standard plotters and cutters. The weeded transfers are then applied at 160° to 170° C for 15 to 17 seconds using medium pressure on a professional heat press.
