Decorate Safety Apparel with Heat Transfers
Safety apparel is a big seller in summer months as construction, landscaping and other safety events are kicked off in June for National Safety Month. Your customers are likely looking for t-shirts in colors of Safety Yellow and Safety Green to help visibility while on the job or out to play. You as an apparel decorator have the power to decorate a wide variety of apparel on your heat press, and safety apparel is no different.
Much of the apparel you’ll be decorating this summer contains cotton, polyester and cotton/poly blends. Easily heat printed with Goof Proof® or Elasti Prints®, safety apparel should be treated just like any other t-shirt order, unless the state or company needs specific regulations followed, in which case, be sure the apparel you’re decorating and the transfers being used meets those requirements.
Transfer Express Apparel offers a wide range of blank apparel in Safety Orange and Safety Yellow colors such as basic t-shirts for an inexpensive option like Gildan® 5000 or Port & Company® PC55 , to apparel with reflective taping like CornerStone® CS401 that meets the ANSI/ISEA 107 Class 2 certification standards for the design and performance of high-visibility safety apparel. Apparel with reflective taping can be heat printed as well without ruining the reflective properties of the taping.
