Frequently Asked Questions

We are here to help!

What is HTV (heat transfer vinyl)?

HTV is a specialty vinyl that can be used on certain fabrics and materials to create designs and promotional products. It comes in a roll or sheet form with an adhesive backing, so it can be cut, weeded, and placed on a substrate for heat application.

How do custom HTV heat transfers work?

Custom HTV heat transfers involve cutting out designs from the vinyl and then applying them to a fabric using heat. The heat activates the adhesive on the vinyl, allowing it to bond with the fabric.

What materials can I apply HTV to?

HTV is commonly applied to cotton, polyester, or a blend of the two. However, it’s essential to check the manufacturer’s recommendations as some vinyls are better suited for specific materials.

Can I layer HTV?

Yes, certain types of HTV can be layered to create multi-colored designs. However, it’s crucial to understand the type of vinyl you’re using and its layering capabilities.

How long do HTV heat transfers last?

With proper care, HTV heat transfers can last a long time. They can withstand multiple washes without peeling or fading. However, it’s recommended to turn the garment inside out and use cold water for washing to prolong the design’s life.

What type of heat press is best for HTV transfers?

A clamshell or swing-away heat press is commonly used for HTV transfers. The key is to ensure even heat and pressure distribution for the best results.

Can I iron over an HTV design?

It’s best to avoid ironing directly over the design. If you must iron the garment, turn it inside out or use a protective barrier between the iron and the design.

Why would one use HTV (Heat Transfer Vinyl) over a screen printed heat transfer?

HTV is ideal for quick, low-quantity projects and offers material versatility. Screen printed heat transfers, like Ultra Ink, are better for high-volume orders, intricate designs, and offer a softer hand feel along with eco-friendly options.

Why are there bubbles or wrinkles in my HTV after pressing?

Bubbles or wrinkles can occur if the heat press wasn’t hot enough, the pressure wasn’t even, or the garment wasn’t pre-pressed to remove moisture. Ensure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions for temperature, time, and pressure.

Can I use a household iron for HTV applications?

While it’s possible to use a household iron, a heat press is recommended for consistent heat and pressure. If using an iron, ensure it’s on a ‘no steam’ setting and apply firm pressure evenly across the design.Remember, always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions when working with HTV to ensure the best results.
