    Default Ceramic transfers?

    Does anyone know where I can get some professional ceramic transfer printed? I've tried the craft computer paper ones and they're pretty rubbish and I want something that works. I need small runs as I would like to just test out some designs. Anyone got any ideas on where I can go next would be gratefully received!

    Thanks!

    Default How about these guys - www.ceramicdigital.co.uk/2.html

    I've spoken to them in the past, but never had any work from them. If I remember correctly they are the sole agent for an Italian printing machine, but have turned their hand to printing decals for others.

    Interesting that you found the computer ones no good was the image blurred or the decal difficult to work with?

    I've seen the ceramic printers online, thanks Robbin, although they are quite expensive at 15.99 for an A4 sheet of your own design. I am hoping to sell these ceramics and they wouldn't be very cost effective! I just wanted to see what else was out there.

    The magic decals are ok, but I find the print flakes off into small pieces. You have to take off a film which again bought more of the image off and it looked tatty.

    Anyone else know anyone who has had ceramic decals printed before?

    Default traditional screen printing. Much more cost effective

    Ok, I chatted to this firm some time ago, they seemed fairly friendly, and they do the more traditional screen printing. Much more cost effective if you want the volume

    Hope this helps

    I have worked with heraldic on a professional basis for my day job and I couldn't recommend them enough. They do the traditional silk screen processes and they all so use a laser printer to print, although I would double check they still do this. I know that they do work with small scale designers as well as larger companies.
