Creating customized pieces of clothing can be an easy way to make money. All you need to get started is a quality heat press and TKO’s custom heat transfers! Read on to see why heat transfers could be a game-changer for your business!


Give the people what they want.


A custom solution is always a guarantee of success. Clients are the most important aspect when it comes to any business. When printing custom garments, offering everything they ask for is important.


TKO is a one-stop shop for all your heat transfer needs. We offer various sizes and formula types to fit any occasion. Each formula is created with quality in mind for the final product. We even have specified settings to ensure perfect application to various fabric types. Our transfers are built for customization that results in maximum vibrancy and longevity for all your clients’ designs.


How to place your first order.


First, decide which design you want to have printed. How many colors are featured in your design? What size do you require your design to be? What material are you printing on, and how many pieces? It can be overwhelming to decide everything before looking over the options, so we encourage you to explore our product pages for further information. This will give you a better idea of how to answer these questions.


Secondly, select the formula that best suits your project needs. As previously mentioned, we have various formulas to choose from. TKO offers screen-printed transfers, digital screen-printed transfers, and some specialty transfers like silicone and heat appliqués. Our transfers come in stock colors, neon inks, metallic inks, and CMYK depending on each formula. In most cases, you may also opt for Pantone color matching to get a more accurate print.


Thirdly, select whether your prints should be a single image, gang sheet, or tagless label format. Please note that not all of these options may be available depending on the formula selected. Select your sheet size next, considering the size of the surface area on which this design will be printed. Sizing will vary based on the previous selection.


Next, upload your artwork in the proper format. We have a page on our website that specifies the art requirements for each formula type, but as a rule of thumb, please ensure that: 


• Your file type is compatible with your selected formula.

• Your color quantity also meets the preset requirements.

• Your sizing for the image is not larger than the selected sheet size.


We offer a preview option that allows you to see the size comparison before placing your order. We also offer in-house art services for a small fee to help you confirm the file type, colors, and sizing are all correct, with a final proof sent for your approval before anything gets printed. Alternatively, if you select our “print as is” option, you waive your design being reviewed by our artists and accept full responsibility for the final results. No re-print will be issued in this case if your print is not accurate to your request. Please review our policy on “print as is” for more information.


Lastly, select the order quantity. Some formulas require a minimum order amount, while others have no minimums. Please review the product pages for further details. When all of these steps have been taken, proceed to checkout!
