Wholesale Apparel

Custom infant and children’s wear is a big market with plenty of possibilities.   Here is some of the blank apparel we carry in sizes 6 month-4 Toddler.




Hooded Sweatshirts

Baseball and Football Jersey Bodysuits


Custom Transfers

The small size needed to print infant and toddler wear makes it very cost-efficient printing.   In the example, below created in Easy View, your free online designer, we sized the prints to be 4” tall so we could fit all 9 months on the same sheet!  Order 50 sheets and your cost per print in two color is under 50 cents!     If you are doing a circle print you can fit 12 prints per sheet at 3×3 and circles always look larger so this size will work.  Custom transfers come ready to apply–no weeding!

Recommended Prints Sizes

Infant Onsies      4 x 4

Toddler                5.5 x 5.5

Also keep in mind CPSIA, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act.   This law assures that what the consumer is buying is safe.   All Transfer Express products have certification and our follow the Prop 65 statement for our California customers, or if selling in California.

Heat Press

Use a little creativity and have fun creating designs and applying the transfers to the apparel in just seconds.     When using your heat press, your print area needs to be firm and flat.   Since shirts like onsies have seams and snaps that can cause uneven pressure.   The simplest way to solve this is to just use a white foam mouse pad and slip it under the print area.  These cost only about $1 and can even be cut down if needed.   Our best seller Goof Proof applies in just 4 seconds.
