Excalibur’s 888PF Series is a single step screen printable transfer adhesive that can be used as a backing for screen printed, four color process heat transfers. Stretchback increases the opacity and allows designs to be printed on dark backgrounds. Transferred designs will now stretch and retract avoiding cracking. The image on the garment will have a very soft hand-feel.
