Once you check the material, you still have many options for each type of material. "Stahls' ID Direct has heat-applied decorating solutions for a variety of fabrics including cotton, polyester, nylon, neoprene, leather and more," Blondell explained. "Many items can be decorated with a heat press outside of apparel, tote bags and caps." She listed items that hold full-color digital designs well: leather, neoprene, nylon and fleece. "As long as the promo item can withstand 300 degrees of heat for five seconds, chances are we have a decorating solution for you," she said.
Where Can You Add Imprints?
Blondell noted that heat printing offers many placement options. "Decorating with heat printing allows decorating in position next to the zipper, over seams—places that traditional screen print and embroidery are not suitable," she said. "Heat applied decorating solutions are very durable and can outlast the apparel in most cases."
