Frequently Asked Questions

We are here to help!

What are Stretch Vinyl HTV Transfers?

Stretch Vinyl HTV Transfers are a type of heat transfer vinyl designed to flex and stretch with the fabric, making them ideal for elastic and performance materials.

How do Stretch Vinyl HTV Transfers differ from regular HTV?

Unlike standard HTV, Stretch Vinyl HTV is formulated to be more flexible and elastic, allowing it to move with stretchy fabrics without cracking or distorting.

How do I apply a Stretch Vinyl HTV Transfer to my garment?

To apply, position the Stretch Vinyl HTV on your garment and use a heat press or iron, following the manufacturer’s recommended heat settings and pressing time. Once cooled, peel away the carrier sheet.

Can garments with Stretch Vinyl HTV Transfers be machine washed?

Yes, they can. However, to maintain the design’s integrity, turn the garment inside out, wash in cold water, and either tumble dry on low or hang to dry.

Is it possible to layer Stretch Vinyl HTV with other types of HTV?

While layering is possible, it’s essential to ensure that all layers are compatible in terms of stretch and flexibility to prevent design distortion when the fabric is stretched.

Why is my Stretch Vinyl HTV peeling off after washing?

This could be due to insufficient heat during application, not pressing for long enough, or washing the garment too soon after application. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for best results.

Can I cut Stretch Vinyl HTV with standard craft cutters?

Yes, Stretch Vinyl HTV can be cut using popular craft cutters like Silhouette, Cricut, and others. Adjust settings based on the specific thickness and type of HTV.

Is Stretch Vinyl HTV safe for children’s clothing?

Most Stretch Vinyl HTV products are CPSIA compliant, ensuring they’re safe for children’s clothing. Always check the product’s specifications to confirm.

What types of fabrics are best suited for Stretch Vinyl HTV?

Stretch Vinyl HTV is ideal for stretchy fabrics like spandex, lycra, and performance wear. It’s also suitable for cotton blends that have some elasticity.

How long should I wait before washing a garment with Stretch Vinyl HTV?

It’s generally recommended to wait at least 24 hours after application before washing the garment. This allows the adhesive to fully bond with the fabric.
