BEFORE CUTTING YOUR DESIGN-- TEST CUT - TEST CUT- TEST CUT - TEST CUT - TEST CUT - TEST CUT - TEST CUT - I do send cutting instructions BUT always test cut because there may be something in your blade, your blade may be dull, your blade holder may not be pushed in. Don't waste this vinyl!
HTV requires a mask to be applied. IT IS NOT INCLUDED You can also use a previously used carrier sheet from another press or purchase this with a sheet of mask. It is reusable for up to a few uses. I have mask listed in a separate listing.
HTV: This is for textiles like shirts and bags. This is a smooth heat transfer vinyl and needs to be applied using a heat press. A home iron can be used but it is hard to gauge the temperature and pressure. But if you are used to applying htv with a home iron, then this will work just fine. It is a white opaque htv that I print on. It is "backwards" on the carrier so I can print on the front. The adhesive part is on the back, against the plastic carrier sheet. So your art needs to be front facing or right reading (meaning, do not mirror), then you cut it that way with the pattern face up and then you weed it and then you use a mask (which is pretty much heat resistant transfer tape) to lift off your weeded design and place it onto your shirt then press. A mask sheet is not included in your purchase. You can purchase a separate 12 inch by 12 inch sheet of mask in another listing I have here in my Etsy shop for $3. BUT you can use a clear carrier sheet that you usually throw in the trash (hopefully recycle bin). I have a drawer where I save my sheets so I can use them for printed vinyl. So start saving yours. *cut and press settings are included with your purchase
GLITTER HTV: Same as above but this is printed on a textured white glitter htv with multi colored glitter (can barely tell it's colored, looks pretty much white, but the specs of color give a nice sparkle). This will have a small piece of mask included because it is unlikely you can use your regular used carriers because of the texture. A high tack mask in needed to lift this design off its carrier to place on your garment. You usually want a small accent design with this media since it is pretty thick. If you want a larger design, you will need to purchase a 12 inch by 12 inch sheet of high tack mask for it.
This is high quality graphics printed using a commercial printer using eco-solvent inks.
Your 12 inch by 12 inch sheet will ship flat in a sturdy envelope via USPS First Class. Included will be instructions for cutting and pressing.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I will include cut settings for several cutting machines including
Brother Scan n Cut
there are also videos on YouTube to show how to apply these.
