Hey guys just found this forum. very helpful a lot of useful info.
I'm trying to set up deck manufacturing in Russia.
Looking for a company that is able to supply me graphics on heat transfer film.
Any leads will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again.

Why would you want someone to supply you with graphics? Or do you mean put your graphics onto heat transfers?

You can do that yourself with the right kind of printer. Even better is to have them silk screened onto the transfers.

But keep in mind that the transfers vary wildly in what they do, how they do it, thickness, brittleness and whether they dry out fast or not—some transfer the entire film to the deck (some much better than others) while the variety that Santa Cruz uses only transfers the ink that has been screened to the transfer (my preferred method—though its not without its difficulties).
