Litho Polytran? Custom Heat Transfers For Textiles

Litho Polytran


Combining the benefits of Lithographic and Silk Screen printing, giving access to full tonal range and image clarity of full colour litho, as used in commercial printing. The quality of the image is sharp and is suited to reproduce photographs, pictures and transparencies where definition is paramount. An additional coating is added to allow the design to be applied to a wider range of fabrics and a white backer is applied to support the additional coating. This is an extremely popular process within the commercial and promotions market.
