With baseball season here, your teams will want their screen printed transfers applied to a split front jersey.  Heat printing on these jerseys takes a little more time, but is easy to do.  Try to order jerseys that have buttons that are spaced at least 6″ apart. These work best for printing.  When ordering your screen printed transfers be sure to request the middle of your image that will be between the buttons is sized to fit that area.
