Heat transfer vinyl from Siser, Chemica and more.

Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) by Siser is available in a wide selection of colors and finishes such as metallic, glitter, flock, and glow in the dark. There are several methods that can be used to cut heat transfer vinyl, such as desktop cutters like the Silhouette Cameo & Cricut, higher volume cutters such as the Roland GX-24 & Graphtec Expert and others. Once your design is cut, the excess material that isn't part of the design is "Weeded" away. Weeding is the process of taking a dental-like tool and pulling the excess material away from the carrier. once your design is cut and weeded, you can apply it to the garment of your choice using a heat press or a household iron on the correct fabric setting.

Each product has slightly different specifications of how to apply including material type, temperature and pressure. To apply HTV with an iron you should follow those same guidelines but you should also:

  • Use a Teflon sheet, thin pillow case or parchment paper (not wax paper!) on top of the design
  • Set the iron on high/cotton
  • Turn off steam
  • Press on a solid surface such as a table or counter Do not "iron" it by moving the iron around. Press firmly for the correct time/temperature then move the iron and press the next section, if the design is large. If you move the iron around like you are ironing the garment, you are heating and cooling the garment and HTV rather than pressing it onto the garment.
  • You may have better results by ironing the garment first to warm the material.
  • Some people have suggested placing a sheet of aluminum foil inside the garment to reflect heat.
