We have just finished some baseball jerseys.
We used thermo-film from Stahls. I was very impressed with the out come of the whole project.
It can be used on cotton, polly or a blend.
We do primarly screen printing, and will use that product in the future.

As of yet I have had no complaints or returnes with that product. There are other ways to get the job done from the web site I had sent. I am just giving you a point of view from a screen printers perspective. They do offer cad prints, that come to you ready to press onto a shirt or other product. I have used that when we get really backed up.

If you dont have a silk screen press. Stahles will print them for you, so you can heat press them. Or you can visit www.proworldinc.com and they can do a plastisol transfer for you. Both places are pretty good. I havent seen your artwork, so I can not tell you the best place to get them done. I screen print 95% of the the product that I sell, and we print about 2000 shirts/month.

We use Ecofilm from Imprintables We do alot of very small detailed work and the feel is just like screening. I can take pics of samples if you'd like. I have even used it for a 3 color design with no issues.

Gotta love the fact it's a 4 second application time, Low temp (302) and it's hot peel! I also like working with it because the mylar carrier is tacky and helps with alignment, especially when working with multiple layers.

is eco film matte?
Eco film isn't too bad as far as having a "shine". especially if you rehit the garment using silicon coated kraft paper, it will give the matte look you are seeking.
Here's the thing....you need to try it for yourself
:)
Call a few differnt distributors that offer different material, and ask for samples. Compare the materials...the way they weed, they way they apply, and most imortantly , how they look and feel after being washed. Not all vinyls are the same. You will find what you need fairly quickly. Check out the preferred members list and you'll be set!
Good luck!
