Basics of an Easy Prints® Layout
Transfer Express is the leader in custom heat transfers. But what some garment decorators don’t know is that Transfer Express is also the leader in ready-made, customizeable artwork for heat transfers called Easy Prints®. We know many of our customers aren’t artists nor are they able to hire an artist to create the designs used for their apparel. Which is why Transfer Express, a long time ago, decided to help those who need custom artwork fast. Over the years, a team of talented artists have created over 5,000+ Easy Prints design layouts and clip art that can be customized to meet your customer’s needs.
A layout is a structured arrangement of text and/or clip art that are pieced together to create a graphic design. Layouts can range from a simple arrangement to a very complex arrangement. The basic components of a layout are Text and Clip Art.
Text are the words placed in a layout. They can be arranged in a variety of shapes and orientations as well as be many different fonts or typestyles. Some of the different text shapes could be a Blimp shape, arched, slanted, Circular as well as many more different shape options shown below.
In addition to changing the shape of text to make it look unique within a layout, text can also be altered by changing the typestyle. Transfer Express currently offers 120 different fonts that can drastically change the look and personality of a design layout.
Clip art are graphic images that are designed to illustrate different categories such as people, animals, objects, etc. Clip art can also be shapes, swirls, splatters and a variety of different artistic images. Currently Transfer Express has over 7,000 clip art options to choose from. The number increases every year as our artists create new layouts and clip art.
Easy Prints® layouts are very versatile. With other 5,000 layouts and 7,000 clip art, finding a design to fit your needs is easy. Just remember that layouts can be customized as little as changing the words and clip art, or as much as you want by changing the typestyles, colors, size of text and clip art and many more options. You may start with one design layout and by the time you’re done customizing, it looks like a completely different design.
