How to Choose the Right Transfer Paper?

To choose the right transfer paper, you'll need to consider several factors, including the type of fabric you'll be using, the type of printing you plan to do, and the quantity of production you anticipate. For example, if you're planning to produce in large quantities, you may want to consider DTF printing or screen print transfer.

Once you've chosen the right transfer paper for your project, it's time to move on to printing. Here are the basic steps to follow:

Prepare your design

Ensure your design is of high quality and is reversed (mirrored) before printing.
