The difference between heat transfer sticker and offset print transfer
heat transfer sticker and offset print transfer both are used on clothes, however we need know their difference before use.
1, heat transfer sticker can be used for small order even 1 pcs, however offerset print need at least bulk order above 500pcs. we usually print the image on PET film with release agent and cut the iamge by cutting machine, then we heat press the image on t clothes. However offset print transfer need to be printed by offset printer costing too much mold fee, so it will be costly for small order.
2, Heat transfer sticker need transfer tape to heat press on clothes, while offset print sticker can be heat pressed directly on fabrics.
3, heat transfer sticker has white base since it need to be curved by curving machine, but offset print has only transparent base.
