The Supacolor Advantage

Supacolor is a unique heat press transfer with vibrant colors, a very soft hand, and amazing stretch. When thinking of a one color design that you would hate to weed, your mind may immediately go to plastisol transfers which may seem like the best choice at the time. However, choosing a Supacolor transfer instead will save you a lot of heartache in the long run if you’re trying to color match or just looking for a basic white transfer. Supacolor will outlast a plastisol transfer and feel and look much better while doing it! These heat press transfers really stand out in the world of color because the process is simple and the variety is endless. Supacolor heat press transfers are ideal for those complex colored designs and even those that require pantone matching! Supacolor transfers are easy to order, easy to press, and easy to sell to your customers! With no hidden charges, lightning fast turn around, and stunning colors Supacolor is the future of custom heat press transfers.
