When applying partial graphic onto a shoe, masking is required. Masking is applying masking tape to cover the areas where graphics doesn’t needed. This masking is a time consuming and labor tense task.
Also this method requires special machine called thermal vacuum transfer machine.
Take a look a below short videos to have a full understanding how thermal vacuum transfer graphics onto a shoe is done.
