Rather than direct screen printing, Bee Embroidered uses screenprinted transfers. In simple terms a screen printed heat transfer is simply plastisol ink that is printed on a special 'release' paper first, and then partially cured in a curing oven. This paper print is then transferred (or 'applied') to a T-shirt or garment using a heat transfer press. If the transfer is made as a special 'hot split' the print on the T-shirt will have the same feel as a direct screen print.
By using screenprinted transfers, you can take advantage of volume discounts on the transfers and still purchase the garments on an as-needed basis eliminating any inventory problems. As with direct screenprinting, each color is an additional cost.

What kind of art can I use to make a transfer?
All arwork must be in vector format. We can use a raster graphic but it will have to be "vectorized" in order to make the transfer. There is a one-time fee, usually $25, to do this.
