Follow The Instructions Carefully
There are many different types of heat transfer vinyl on the market. You can choose from single color to specialty designs, and some types are even printable! You’ll also need a solvent printer or ink to print on heat transfer vinyl. This material is best for simple designs, such as a logo or a letter. Depending on the design, it can be difficult to match up individual colors, so you’ll want to choose a product that has a plain background.
If you want to use a design on your heat transfer vinyl, you can download some free or paid design software. Use bold fonts and check spelling before printing. Make sure your design is mirrored as it will appear on the reverse of the fabric. You can also purchase pre-printed designs online or in stores. This will save you the hassle of designing your own design and deciding which design to use. But be sure to check that it fits onto the material before pressing it onto a surface.
