Watch Impressions Get Heat Printed
The June/July 2013 cover of Impressions features two tots wearing customized garments that were heat printed by Stahls’ Cad-Cut Direct, St. Clair Shores, Mich. These garments, the Double-Ruffle tee (style 2638) and the Ruffle tee (style 2632), and coordinating leggings (style 8338), provided by L.A. T Sportswear, Ball Ground, Ga., were decorated using some of the hottest selling materials available for vinyl cutters.
The full textured glitter finish is in high demand for markets such as cheer, dance, schools and kids apparel. Combining the glitter flake material within a popular animal print design such as Zebra only adds to the flair.
To watch these garments get created with the cut-it, weed-it and heat-it workflow, check out the video above, which showcases the decoration of the garments and the steps that were executed. — Staff
