Printed vinyl is available in adhesive (equivalent to Oracal 651), heat transfer vinyl and glitter heat transfer vinyl. These are printed on an eco-solvent commercial printer to assure that you get a vibrant long lasting finish that will last years. Prints come in 12" x 12" sizes. I do offer sample packs in 6"x6" sizes in the store.
**Please Note that this pattern is darker than what is shown in the mock up photos. Use the designed photo to see actual color incase you are trying to match up with a school color. It's more of a dark maroon. Some monitor screens may show different colors than others. This color does match up with the Next Level Raglan Maroon shirt though :)
TRANSFER/MASK is also an option to purchase. I get asked a good bit as to what this is. The transfer/mask (you hear them called both) is what you need to transfer over the pattern htv and pattern glitter htv with (it is NOT the same transfer that you use for adhesive vinyl). These are reusable several times as long as it still has enough stickiness to it that will lift your design from the carrier sheet once you've weeded it. All transfer/mask is, is the plastic piece that you normally throw away after you have heat pressed or ironed on a design with Siser EasyWeed or Siser Glitter vinyl (or any other brand comparable to Siser). You can even save those bigger plastic pieces to use with your pattern htv so save money on purchasing because it's the same thing. Only difference is, the pattern htv does not already have that transfer/mask already attached to the top like regular solid and glitter htv because the pattern vinyl is printed on. This is why you place the pattern vinyl face up on mat and do not mirror/reverse your image on screen. :)
Instructions for using HTV Prints and Glitter HTV Prints Directions:
Step 1: Cut your image with print side UP on mat and DO NOT REVERSE ON SCREEN. Step 2: Weed the unwanted vinyl from the HTV sheets. Step 3: Place HTV Transfer (also known as mask) on top of your weeded graphic pressing firmly across the graphic or design. Peel the transfer tape up and your graphic or design will be attached to the transfer. It is now ready to be placed on whatever garment you are applying it to. Siser recommends - TTD Easy Mask which is sold separately in all printed vinyl listings. Step 4: Preheat fabric 2-3 seconds, this will take out any moisture that may be in the fabric. (you should do this will ALL htv) Step 5: Position the transfer-taped (masked) design on fabric. Step 6: Iron or heat press the design 15 seconds at 300° F, medium pressure. (Do not forget to use your Teflon sheet to protect the masked graphic from the top of the heat press or iron) Step 7: Remove the transfer tape (mask) while warm. (keep the mask, it is reusable as long as it has some stickiness to it)
Users should test a small piece if not familiar with the process.
Care Instructions for htv: *Do not dry clean. *Wash inside out. *Machine wash warm / mild detergent. *Dry on normal setting. *No chlorine bleach. *Wait 24 hours before first wash. *Also use care instructions that is on your garment, certain materials will tell you not to machine wash or dry so be sure to check that as well.
We strive we very hard to provide you with the best quality prints that we can by using 3 different softwares to get our final results. Please note though, that not all computer screens and monitors are the same so colors may be slightly different than shown on monitor. Images are made with pixelations, some prints may show slight pixelation but once cut and weeded you can't tell that and they are viewed at a distance, not close to the eyes. There are only a few print designs that you can see slight pixelation at a very close up view. We try to scale down all prints so that cutting smaller monograms or graphics look good. In order to do that some prints may be in tiled form but we do not tile unless that is our only option. If you ever have any questions about size then please ask prior to ordering. Any patterns described as glitter, metallic, or any other texture is based on the look of the vinyl and will not actually have these textures or finishes because they are printed.
