Customize Gravel Tees with Different Transfer Types
Gravel fabric tees are a lightweight cotton/polyester blend that can be customized with several different heat transfer options. We are customizing District – Juniors Gravel 50/50 Crew Tee. DT2400, District – Young Mens Gravel 50/50 Long Sleeve Henley Tee. DT1401, and District – Young Mens Gravel 50/50 Notch Crew Tee. DT1400.
These gravel fabric options are each cotton/polyester blends. Goof Proof, Elasti Prints, and Hot Split screen printed transfers can each be applied to this fabric type. Both Goof Proof and Elasti Prints are shown applied to the gravel fabric apparel a little further down.
Since these fabrics are thinner and light weight, the front and back of the shirt may stick a little when the heat transfer is applied. One way to avoid this is to thread the platen as shown above. We suggest heat pressing as you normally would for the specific transfer type, modifying if needed.
Goof Proof screen printed heat transfers were used to customize the t-shirts shown above. Goof Proof ink applies well to 100% cotton and cotton/polyester blends.
Elasti Prints screen printed heat transfers apply and look great on the gravel fabric material as well. Elasti Prints ink applies well to 100% polyester and cotton/polyester blends.
When customizing an apparel item with Hot Split screen printed transfers, keep in mind that this transfer type is meant to melt into the fabric to provide the softest feel. It is a good idea to avoid light colored ink on dark fabric colors when using the Hot Split transfer type.
