So it doesn't really have to be used just on T-shirts, it could be used on Polo shirts, hats, jeans, all kinds of clothing. The transferring process with T-shirt vinyl is a heat transferring process. Sometimes this vinyl is called heat transfer or iron on vinyl. The vinyl itself has no adhesive that you can feel.
People also ask, what side of vinyl do you cut?
The SHINY side of HTV is the carrier sheet, the dull side is the adhesive. When cutting HTV, cut SHINY side down: Some heat transfer has a white (or other color) adhesive side, but it is usually the same color as the vinyl, just duller in color.
Which side of iron on vinyl goes down?
Then position it PLASTIC SIDE DOWN and vinyl side up. There is a layer of plastic that will be peeled away. It's the shinny side. So again that's shiny side down.
Can you iron on vinyl?
A little trick I like to do, is to iron your project first. You want to make sure your shirt is nice and smooth and there are no wrinkles. Grab your multi purpose sheet and put it over your heat transfer vinyl to protect your iron. You can use a towel, a Teflon sheet, or whatever you have.
