Since 2013 many companies in the UK and Ireland have benefited from being introduced to the DST transfer printing system.
This streamlined system combines the benefits of traditional screen printing with those of digital to produce exceptional results across a wide range of garments/ bags. Full photographic transfers using soft feel powder can be produced using just one screen efficiently and cost effectively. 200 A4 sized transfers or up to 1,600 A7 transfers can be produced in just one hour from receipt of artwork to completion.
The transfers are sharp, bright, durable and stand up to regular machine washing.
Such is the adaptability of the system that in just one pass a single screen can contain a range of individual designs contained in one basic outline. The screen stays the same, the design is changed digitally and the net result is a range of diverse and personalised options for the customer.
This makes for satisfied customers and happy printers who find their business and profit margins growing in equal measure.
