I have a design and typically i would send the stuff over to my screen printer but i just wanted a limited run on a few designs so i figured i'd go the transfer route and have them sent to a client of mine that has a heat press, and have her do the job. However, i'm running into issue with the artwork. I'm hearing that there's too many details lines are thin i had similar issues wheni had to upload artwork to Spreadshirt before. I'm just curious as to how is it possible that i can see people run really elaborate artwork. However, I do not seem to meet the requirements am i requesting the wrong thing? here's an example mock of the design i'm trying to use.

The transfer must be vinyl? You shouldn't have this issue with an inkjet or laser transfer.

There is a line height requirement with a cutter cutting vinyl because it is mechanically cutting outlines vs. a printed transfer where the ink is simply sprayed on top of the sheet.

Thanks for the reply Joe that's the problem i don't know which method i should be asking for. Usually with the screenprinting i set it up and send the psd files to my printer guy and i'm good. However, we're leaning towards using the heatpress so it's just a different experience .

Plastisol transfers have issues with thin lines, I am always running into that with them, vinyl, same limitation, perhaps even more so.

The best method to use with a heat press for fine detail work is Laser/inkjet transfer. I see by the size of your image that your client would need to have an oversized inkjet or Laser to make it. (it appears to be larger than 8 x 10.5.)
