Method of producing film with through-holes


A film 2 made of an elastic material is stretched in at least one direction parallel to a surface of the film and then through-holes 25 are punched in the film in the state where the film is stretched. After the punching is completed, the stretching is terminated, so that the film recovers its original shape. Preferably the through-holes are formed using needles 115. The film may be used in an ink transfer printer (Fig 4).
