BEST PRACTICE FOR BABY & KIDSWEAR

What material should you be using? When producing garments for Baby & Kidswear, a print with the kindest finish is vital. You want your Heat Transfer Vinyl and Print & Cut Media to be free from harmful substances. To ensure the finish is safe for Baby & Kidswear, ask for the material to be OEKO-TEX certified.

For printing on Baby & Kidswear we recommend using Sportsfilm. Available as Heat Transfer Vinyl and Print & Cut Media. OEKO-TEX certified to standard 100. SportsFilm is compatible with cotton, polyester & more. With light and dark colours staying vibrant after many washes. How to get the...
