Hello there people,

At the moment i'm testing some samples from different plastisol providers.
One of them uses a sort of powder/glue to attach the plastisols to the textile. Has anyone used this kind of plastisols already? Is it better or worse?

Thanks

hi there,

this glue you are talking about is a special adhesive used sometimes when manufacturing screen printed iron-on transfers.

This glue it simply makes the durability of the printed iron-on last longer because it bonds the iron-on on to the garment. Often used on high ticket brand items like hoodys etc. and on knits that may not be as tight as jersey. Like fleece.

the cost of adding this glue is about the same as adding an additional color to your cost. It does not hurt if you have the budget.

hi, not sure if we are talking about the same thing.

"first-edition only charges $.10 extra for the crystals"

how does " crystals " relate to " Glue " ?

Thanks for the reply's people. I just recieved some plastisol transfers and they looked really good. (not the powder/glue type)

Hopefully they hold up when washing.
