do you mean using a transfer, the one you put with iron ? If its this one you must ask the seller if its appropriate because I m afraid satin doesn't react well to iron, if its silkscreening then you can do it but you must use the correct ink, there is a special kind of ink for every kind of fabrics.
Hope it helps, because I m not sure I understood well the question  Undecided

I have used fabric paint on satin & it didn't work well. The reason it didn't work was my paint was fairly liquid and what makes satin is that it's a very fine weave, the paint bled along the weave. Test first on a scrap. I think more viscous paint or ink would work better, but they cost more too,
