Default Where to get custom pre-cut vinyl

Are there any vendors that will do my custom designs on pre-cut vinyl transfers?

If so, please give recommendations on which to use.

I've looked at plastisol transfers but they are too high for lower quantities.

I'm trying to see if its possible to buy only a heat press and get started. No printer and/or cutter.

Thanks

I would sure love to see the match that says plastisol transfer are too much....For less than 75.00 you can buy custom transfers (50)....Going to be hard to find anyone who will do custom cad cut for much less...And even if you do it will only be a few pieces.....

Actually....if you want 50 1-color plastisol transfers you can get them from SEMO Imprints for $55 ($1.10 ea.) plus shipping. 50 4-color is $140.....it's posted on their website at www.semoimprints.com

Regarding Stahls...I do remember now seeing something on their website where they would do pre-cut vinyl....they would even press it on a shirt for you...lol.

Here is the link Custom Cut Designs Using Your Artwork | Stahls' ID

It looks like you have to send them the design to quote but you also have to pay at least a $25 artwork fee to get the artwork setup ready to cut. Maybe if your artwork is already cut-ready they might wave that....not sure.

I have used SEMO for one color plastisol. Great transfers and great service. I live close enough to go get my transfers. My artwork was ready to go so they did not charge me a fee or a very minimal one. I do my own vinyl.

You say that you want 50 transfers - do you really? if these are full size, then perhaps you do. However, if these are left chest or smaller sizes, you can gang them together and buy fewer sheets.

50 sheets are about $75 ($1.45 per sheet).

I've been looking at Silver Mountain Graphics, which was recommended by a friend of mine who also does some shirts. The sent me samples, which pressed on perfectly the first time.

I really can not imagine being able to sell what I sell without a vinyl cutter......There are lots of jobs where plastisol transfers will be too much money or too long of delivery time...If I just need 1 to 6 of the same design, it i is hard to beat cutting it myself.....

For larger quantities, multiple colours, designs that might repeat, etc. That is where plastisol transfer come in...Spot | Custom Screen Printed Heat Transfers No work weeding, extras for future orders, extra space on sheets to gang other clients artwork, etc....

As inexpensive as plastisol transfers are it doesn't make sense anymore to have someone do this for you. 613 Originals and FM Tranfers can make them for you for 15 cents each plus a nominal set up fee plus shipping.

Default Re: Where to get custom pre-cut vinyl

Thanks splathead. Speaking for me, the problem with screen print transfers is that they are too inconsistent quality wise. Too many variables that need to "fit" to get very good and long lasting print without issues. Also, some of these variables are not even in your hands to control and you need to rely on the manufacturer. Screen printed transfers are too inconsistent for me personally which will cause issues for your business/brand sooner or later. I prefer either direct screenprinting or good HTV. How is your experience with screen printed transfers?
