In flex and flock film transfer printing, the print motif is cut from special monochrome plastic films
and then transferred to the textile. In addition to cotton textiles, polyester, nylon, viscose and
blended fabrics can also be printed. The surface of flex foils goes from smooth to matt / soft, whereas those of
flock foils are velvety.
Since only vector graphics without color gradients can be printed with this printing technique, it is particularly
suitable for printing lettering, pictograms, logos and similar motifs.
A major advantage is the rapid and cost-effective production of individual pieces or small runs.
However, for each exemplar the same workload is incurred and therefore the cost per piece remain almost constant.
Compared to screen printing, this printing technique is less suitable for the production of high print runs.
