To the best of my knowledge there's no way to print puff with a digital transfer; it needs to be screenprinted. You can, however, order plastisol transfers with puff ink and press them with your heat press.

as far as i know Solmu is correct.

for a puff raised texture look and feel, you can also use deco material type transfers, much more durable than puff ink.

I saw some puff printed heat transfers at the Printwear tradeshow.

I didn't think it was possible, but it looked OK.

Not sure who made the transfers though.

here is the URL: http://www.t-shirtforums.com/showthread.php?p=31305#post31305 , JUST KIDDING. :)

puff mix inks raise up lika a pizza when you apply heat and downward force with a heat press. They feel rubbery raised texture like and are often used with multi color designs, cause they print on all fabric colors.

most manufactures of transfers today will use a Puff mix ink along with a layer of adhesive to make them more durable. This was always the problem in the past with Puffs, you could peel the puff ink off the shirt with your fingers very easy. They required extra care in the wash etc...


deco transfers are made of various materials, the popular fuzzy flock for example, gives you a raised velvet fuzzy type feel and look. A thick vinyl will give you a plastic wet feel and look......., any material that can work with heat can be used as a deco transfer, you simply bond adhesive to the back side of the material you choose (your local fabric store will have some good fabrics/materials) then plotter cut, die-cut or even hand cut it (your design) into a transfer. Often used with 1 color designs but can also be used with 2-3-4-5-6 color designs.
