Metallic heat transfer vinyl is a type of vinyl material that is designed to be applied onto fabrics using a heat press or iron. It is made of a thin, flexible material that has a metallic finish, which gives it a shiny and reflective appearance.
When the metallic heat transfer vinyl is heated, it adheres to the fabric, creating a permanent bond. This type of vinyl is often used to create designs or text on clothing, bags, and other fabric items. It is particularly popular for creating designs on sports jerseys, dance costumes, and other performance wear.
