Heat Transfer Vinyl Rolls is also known as t-shirt vinyl or iron-on vinyl. It can be applied to a variety of fabrics using a heat press or iron. Craftables self-adhesive vinyl sheets and rolls are premium products specially designed for all your crafting needs. We have a variety of thermal transfer t-shirt vinyl options including standard HTV, glitter, glow-in-the-dark, foil and more.
With good care of the garment, the manufacturer recommends about 50 washes for vinyl heat transfers, which does eventually crack and fade after that.
The first step in using HTV is to cut out your desired design. To do this, you must prepare your cut file to cut in the cutting machine software you are using. Cut file is the design that you want to cut and put on your shirt or another surface. The most common cut file type is probably SVG, but you might be using a . Studio, .png, .dxf, or .jpg file depending on the software you are using. You can download our SVG file for free. Once you have your design and surface picked out, you need to measure your surface to determine how big you will need to cut the design. Now ready to load our heat transfer or iron-on vinyl into the cutting machine. Heat transfer vinyl has a carrier sheet on top. Whenever you cut heat transfer vinyl, the carrier sheet will be facedown on your mat. Make sure to mirror image your design before you hit cut. It will transfer backward from what you cut. Otherwise, your design will be backward when you go to place it on your shirt. The cut settings vary depending on the HTV you use and the vinyl cutter you have. Load your cutting mat with the vinyl shiny side down into your machine, and cut!
