Can any image be made into a digital ceramic transfer?

Yes, but if the artwork is on paper it needs to be converted into digital form using a scanner.

What software do you recommend for generating images and layouts?

We normally use Adobe Photoshop to create images and Illustrator to create layouts, but Corel Draw and other photo editing software is equally suitable.

Is it possible to reproduce the colours of my artwork in a ceramic transfer?

Probably not, we use high temperature stable ceramic pigments in a 4 colour CMYK printing system. It is not possible to produce stable cyan, magenta and yellow colours to match conventional CMYK colours. Cyan, magenta and yellow ceramic colours tend to be darker and consequently vibrant colours cannot be achieved in digital ceramic transfer printing. Bright red for example, normally achieved by mixing magenta and yellow colours is particularly difficult.
