Holographic heat transfer vinyl is a type of vinyl material that can be used to create designs on fabrics through the process of heat transfer. It has a holographic or prism-like effect, which reflects light in a rainbow of colors.
To use holographic heat transfer vinyl, the design is first cut out of the material using a vinyl cutter. Then, the design is placed on the fabric and heat is applied using a heat press or an iron. The heat activates the adhesive on the vinyl and bonds it to the fabric.
How to use holographic heat transfer vinyl?
Design: Create or select a design for the vinyl transfer. This can be done using design software or by using pre-made designs that are available online or in-store.
Cutting: Cut the design from the holographic heat transfer vinyl using a vinyl cutter. Make sure to mirror the design before cutting it so that it appears correctly when transferred onto the fabric.
Weeding: Remove the excess vinyl around the design using a weeding tool. This leaves only the design on the carrier sheet.
Placement: Place the vinyl transfer design on the fabric with the carrier sheet facing up.
Heat press: Apply heat and pressure using a heat press or iron.
Peel: Once the vinyl transfer has been pressed onto the fabric, peel off the carrier sheet to reveal the final design.
