Glitter, Shimmer and Metallic Custom Heat Transfers

If you are looking to make your garment designs really stand out, then try a custom heat applied transfer. A custom heat transfer can give you a great colour range and a higher level of customisation for any textile products. . 

Get the Look with Glitter

By using a custom heat transfer we can build the design bespoke to your product, so your design will not crack or develop imperfections even under strain. Tell us what you would like adding to your design and we will build your custom heat transfer with glitter in the ink, or we can add a metallic finish to your imagery. There is no limit.

With a custom transfer only the area of the design that is needed is created, this means that there is no weeding involved. You send us your design and we send back your custom heat transfers as a pack ready to be applied.

Minimum orders for custom heat transfers start at just 25 and can be turned around in two days. If you are looking to create these products at scale we can provide the same transfers in runs over 100,000. 

If you need help with the application process too, then just let us know when you submit your artwork.

Artwork Requirements
To create your custom heat transfers we require a vector file (with text saved as outlines), along with Pantone colour references for the specific spot colours required.

If you do not have the Pantone colour reference, we can help you to choose the correct colours for your design. Get in touch if you require help completing your artwork.

Why custom transfers?


Custom heat applied transfers last just as long as direct-printed garments and often provide a more attractive finish that feels part of the garment.

Press on demand

If you are unsure how many of a particular garment you will need to make then screen printed transfers take the risk out. You only need to apply the transfer to the garment as and when you need it. If you do not use the transfer on your current range, they will be ready for the next one.

2-day turnaround

Target transfers can provide screen printed transfers to you with just a 2-day turnaround. So if you get that last minute job that cannot wait, we can be the partner you need. Sent direct to you from our factory in Braintree, Essex.
