plastisol transfers on mesh jerseys?

1684 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  splathead
hey all-

is it possible to heat apply plastisol transfers to the pin-hole style mesh poly athletic jersey? i was wondering if the ink would seep through the holes and onto the heat platen. was thinking this would be the best way to do a multicolor logo without have a silkscreen setup. (i know vinyl is alright for up to 2 colors but this logo is 3 colors). thanks in advance! -peace.

Yes, it can be done. The ink generally does not seep. In fact, where the holes are, that ink stays on the transfer, so you have the mesh effect through the transfers too. :)

It wouldn't hurt to put some protection (paper, etc.) on the bottom platen.
