    Hi,

    Our company creates logos for clothing and items such as coolers, and I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for heat transfer vinyls for coolers. A material currently used is Decal HT print over laminate / high tac vinyl. Wondering if there is a list of different kinds of materials that could be used.

    Hard shell coolers. The company gets them done at another place but want to start doing it ourselves. It is believed the other company uses some kind of HTV and a heat gun. Wondering if you knew of a list of such materials that would work on a hard shell cooler?

    Why would you use a heat press material on a hard plastic cooler? Heat press materials are for fabrics, i.e. garments.

    If they are applying something using a heat gun, my guess is it's because the plastic is textured and also a low surface energy material, and they are heating regular vinyl and rolling it the way you'd do a brick/concrete wall wrap.
