    I am brand spanking new to heat transferring printed graphics to clothes and hats, but I'm
    wanting to get into it.
    I have a customer who is a law official, he brought me three shirts to have embroidered, but
    that's not enough for my embroidery vendor. I want to help him out and I want to try some heat pressing,
    so I got him to agree to vinyl transfers, but he wants reflective if we can do it.

    I know a guy who has a heat press, is there a printable reflective vinyl? If so, can someone suggest
    a supplier that sells short rolls of it? Would I need to do anything to the graphics after printing and cutting,
    before heat pressing it?

    Thanks for any help.

    Siser is first to come to mind. Do you have any way to cut HTM?

    We buy in reflective HTV then just layer on any designs. It’s a PITA but it works. Naturally, the more intricate the designs, the more annoying it is!

    Specialty materials has a printable reflective. I'm not sure if it meets any regulations though. They also have a product called Reflection Protection that is specifically for police, construction workers etc. although I don't know if it is printable.

    Thank you for all of the responses, I contacted Specialty materials to see if I could get a sample, do they sell directly or do they sell through retail suppliers?

    If you don't have a local dealer they will sometimes sell directly but they will either recommend one or just sell it to you direct.
