Gang Sheets & Flooded Sheets Explained
If you are new to heat transfers, one of the most common terms used for printing multiple images on one sheet of paper is called a “Gang Sheet”
Gang sheets are perfect when you have multiple images using the same colors and when you need multiple sizes of the same design.
Gang Sheet options are available in most all of our ink formulas and priced by the sheet. All gang sheet options offer a great price with no extra set up charges. The more you fit on the sheet, the lower your price is per image. This can be very useful when you need several sizes of the same logo. For example you may have a team uniform order which requires a full back print, left chest print or a full front imprint.
Step by Step - How to prepare a gang sheet
Create your document size by selecting one of the (4) available sizes. You must do this in your own drawing program such as Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or Adobe Photoshop.
Go to the Document Color mode and select CMYK
Begin placing your images on the sheet. Be sure to adjust any sizes if necessary to allow enough room for all of the images to fit. Be sure to allow at least .5" in between for you to be safely able to cut them apart. We do not cut gang sheets.
Be sure you select all of the images and then open your "linked images" panel. Then select "Embed All" and save your art file.
Once you complete these 4 easy steps, you can then upload your gang sheet.
We recommend you leave yourself at least .25” in between each image if your planning on cutting the images apart using scissors. If you plan on using a “chop” style cutting boards, we recommend you use at least ½” in between each designs and place your images in straight cutting lines.
Available Sheet Sizes
A "Flooded" sheet is a transfer which has 100% ink coverage. Typically "Flooded" sheets are used for cutting with a plotter or recently used to make "Confetti" flakes for decoration.
