Choosing the Samples You Receive
Do you need a pack of screen printed transfer samples to test for yourself?
Getting a sample pack helps you see how the transfers apply with your heat press, and gives you a way to touch and feel the final result.
Not only are the samples helpful in testing applications, but it can also give you a tool in showing your customer what you can offer them.
We offer samples in all the transfer types. You can request a full sample pack, or individual samples for what you need.
The samples we provide are not random. There is a lot of thought and planning that go into it.
How we choose the art, ink formulas, and layouts that are in your free transfer sample pack is based on what sells, and what you would need to show your customer.
Sample Transfers Ink Formulas
In the transfer sample pack, we include one of each of the following custom transfer ink formula types so you have one of each to apply and compare.
Screen-printed plastisol ink transfers include the best-selling Goof Proof®, Hot Split Retro, Elasti Prints®, Glitter, Pearl Prints™, Puff, and Glow-in-the-Dark.
Our fastest growing full color transfer type, UltraColor™ Soft is included in the pack.
The digital transfers are CAD-PRINTZ® Soft Opaque and Express Prints.
The pack would not be complete without name and number samples in both the Goof Proof numbers and Elasti Prints numbers.
A sample of our window decal product is included, as well.
You can apply your Goof Proof sample using 3 different sets of instructions: 365°F/4-6 seconds, 340°F/8-10 seconds, or 325°F/10-12 seconds.
The name sample you can also apply one of three ways—365°F/4 seconds, 340°F/10 seconds, or 290°F/15 seconds.
Always follow the instructions for each transfer type, as each transfer type applies differently.
Art and Color Choices for Custom Transfer Samples
Not only is there one of each of our best-selling transfer types included, but there is a variety of art and colors as well.
So, who do think chooses which of our 10,000 artwork layouts will be used?
It’s easy – you, our customer, makes that choice! You don’t remember being asked?
Well, the layout choice is a popularity choice. We evaluate how many times each layout was sold during the year and try to choose one from each of a variety of Idea Book™ categories.
You will find a variety of the best-selling layouts, from school, to sports, to business, and others. We then try to give you a variety of colors and color combinations.
For example, the basketball sample is a royal and white Elasti Prints transfer, for your polyester performance wear – just the way you might typically purchase this product.
Our Glitter sample is a Fitness design in Glitter Gold.
Transfer Samples in Photo Shoot
Many of the transfers in your sample pack are mini versions of what were also used in our photo shoot.
You’ll find them in our photos in our full color catalog. This way, when your customer sees them and touches them, they will see the same full size designs in color with people wearing the same print.
If you want the same, full size transfers to match the catalog photos, you can also get our Refresher Pack of display transfers to refresh your t-shirt display.
Create a Marketing Tool Sample Set
Not only are these mini samples a great way to actually try out the product, but they are also a great way to show your customers the actual products, too.
These mini samples are an easy and very convenient way to take samples with you on the go when you’re meeting with customers.
