Getting Started Applying Craft Vinyl

Most people think that craft vinyl is a difficult medium to work with. That is not true. As long as you have a good vinyl to work with, the right tools, and a good surface to apply it on, it's a breeze to work with.

It all starts with cutting your vinyl design on an electronic cutting machine. Yes, you could hand-cut a vinyl piece, but the electronic cutting machines give you more options for custom designs. You will get better weeding results and you can create unlimited designs that are as intricate as you want.

When using an electronic cutting machine to cut vinyl designs, it is important to have some understanding of how your machine works.

Especially when you are starting out, buy more vinyl than you think you need for your project. Chances are there might be a mistake and you will have spare vinyl to re-make anything that isn’t perfect.

Transfer Tape

When using vinyl other than Heat Transfer Tape, you need to have a way to get the vinyl from the mat that you cut it on and impose it on your project (also called a substrate). Transfer tape is the product that does just that.

There are different strengths of transfer tape. Regular and strong grip are the two most often used. Strong grip transfer tape is used for heavier types of craft vinyls like glitter vinyl.

Once your design has been cut and weeded (cleaned of any excess not part of the design), The tape is laid down over the design. The tape is then laid down in a smooth flat covering over the cut and wedded project. The pressure is applied by burnishing (applying pressure) over the tape with a scraper. The tape with the design is then applied to the project surface. Once you apply it, the tape is pulled away, leaving the design adhered to the project.

There are two basic types of transfer tapes: paper and clear (also called transparent).

Paper Transfer Tape

Paper tape, as the name implies, is a paper-based face film coated with adhesive. Think of it as industrial masking tape. It tends to be softer and more flexible than clear tape. Its primary advantage over other types is that it has choices when it comes to tackiness (stickiness). It can be purchased in low, medium, and high tack levels.
It also tends to be less expensive than clear tapes. One of the best features of this tape is that it can be used over and over several times. So you get the most bang for your buck.

(The medium and high tack tape should cover most of your needs.)

The only drawback is that this kind of tape is not good for multilayered vinyl projects. In those cases, you need a very precise placement of each piece. Since you can see through the clear tape, it would be a better choice for this kind of application.

Clear Transfer Tape

Clear tape is exactly what the name implies—you can see through the tape right down to the design. They are made from plastic face film instead of paper. That means when you place the design on your project, you can see the exact placement of the design. So why would you not use this type of tape all the time?

Well, for one thing, clear tape does not have the same stickiness as paper tape. So it may not work to transfer all kinds of vinyl. Some vinyl products require a more aggressive tape to lift them off and transfer.

Another drawback to clear tape is static. The plastic tape can generate static in certain environments. They can also pick up dust and debris, causing bubbles.

Using Transfer Tape

  1. Cut a piece of transfer tape a little larger than your design. You can use transfer tape several times before discarding so you might want to leave it a little large for other projects you are working on.
  2. Peel back the backing paper. Remember to keep this so you can put the transfer tape back on it for use later.
  3. Put the transfer paper on your design and burnish it down well. A scraper works well for this, but you can also use an old gift card.
  4. Turn the piece over and remove the backing paper but you can lift the transfer tape if you would like. You want your design to stay on the tape cleanly. If it is not, press down again and go over with the scraper. Then try to lift again.
  5. Now that your deign is on the tape, position the tape with the vinyl over the project.
  6. Press the vinyl down well and you will once again want to burnish it well.
  7. Then peel back the transfer tape. Be sure that your vinyl is stuck well to your project surface. If it is lifting, replace the tape and burnish some more before lifting a second time.

Once you have created your design and have weeded it (removed excess pieces of vinyl not part of the design), it is time to transfer your design to your project.

Using Clear Transfer Tape

  1. Bow the transfer tape slightly into a taco shape.
  2. Cut a piece of transfer tape slightly bigger than the project.
  3. Place the center of your transfer tape in the center of the project.
  4. Start in the middle and move outward.
  5. As you lay the tape down burnish (rub) the tape onto the project.(You can use a scraper, craft stick, old gift card, or a butter knife).
  6. Burnish the whole project again.
  7. Peel the vinyl again at a 45-degree angle. If the vinyl remains on the tape, lay the tape down and burnish again. Lift it once more.
  8. Enjoy your finished project.

Vinyl Tips for Crafters

  1. Measure and cut your vinyl into sheets from the roll. Measure the size of your design then cut the sheet a bit larger than the design. You have shopped for vinyl and have found out that it is not cheap! In fact, using cheap vinyl can result in poor results in cutting and weeding! My point here is that you want to conserve the vinyl that you purchase. Buying by the roll is often less expensive, but cutting it into sheets as you go, makes the design easier to handle. Cut the vinyl with a sharp straight marker or a ruler and a craft knife.
  2. Use a roller attachment with a cutter like the newest one on the Cricut Explore 3 and the Cricut Maker 3. This is available as an extra attachment to these machines only. The roller attachment has a straight cutter attached to the roller.
  3. Have something handy at your fingertips to collect the bits and pieces from your weeding. You can use something as simple as a tin can with some printed paper around it. Or you can use those plastic stands or singer wrap to collect all those bits. You can buy a little tabletop trashcan and decorate it for something special for your work area.
  4. Use a window or a bright pad for weeding. I am fond of my light pad. The best light pads have a multi-light brightness control. Where I live you cannot always count in the sun, but you can use a window too.
  5. While we are talking about weeding, make sure to use a little talcum powder or corn starch on your designs. Makes it so much easier to see the cut lines. You can brush it off the design later.
  6. Remember to burnish your transfer tape once you place it over your adhesive vinyl design. Use a scraper to push the tape onto the vinyl.
  7. Have different types of transfer tape on hand. There are different strengths of transfer tapes for different types of vinyl. If a transfer tape is not lifting the design, go to the next strength of transfer tape and burnish it again,
  8. If your design is not lifting, flip the design over so that the transfer tape is on the bottom. Then lift the backing on your adhesive vinyl. Carefully tape it to the project surface. This would be my last resort idea.
  9. If you are applying vinyl to a rounded surface, cut all of the edges as close to the design as you can. Then cut little slits all around the edges of the transfer tape. This makes the transfer tape a little more flexible.

Heat Transfer Vinyl Application Tips

Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) is used on fabric, mostly cotton or cotton blends. Applying HTV correctly is not challenging, but does have some guidelines that will get you the best results.

  1. Always flip (mirror) your vinyl when cutting it on an electronic cutting machine.
  2. The goal when cutting heat transfer vinyl is to not cut through the clear carrier sheet (shiny side). This plastic sheet acts like transfer tape, keeping your design tacked down to your fabric while pressing. It also protects the fabric from the direct heat of the press or iron.
  3. Once your vinyl is all cut, remove all of the excess vinyl from around your design. This step is known as "Weeding".
  4. Pre-press your fabric. Heating up the fabric opens up the fibers, allowing the adhesive from the vinyl to really absorb into the material during the press. Heat press or iron your fabric for two to three seconds before applying the vinyl.
  5. Understand your heat settings. Not all vinyl is the same, even if it is the same kind of vinyl manufactured by different companies. Manufacturers will post the heat settings for their vinyl or include that information in the packaging of their products. Follow those directions and you will have better results.
  6. Apply equal pressure. If using an iron, you need to really put your weight on the iron while you're pressing. Do NOT use an ironing board, that has too much give in it. Use your countertop or even the kitchen floor...just make sure your pressing surface is hard and can handle having you press with all your might on it.
  7. Make sure that you understand the pressing time for your specific type of craft vinyl. 10-15 seconds is the perfect pressing time. You don't want to scorch the adhesive by keeping the heat on too long and over pressing. Again, follow your manufacturer's directions for the best results.
  8. Know when to peel. The instinct is to want to peel the covering off right away. But with some vinyl, you will spoil the design if you do not let it cool first. some vinyl requires you to peel the carrier sheets right away. So understand which type you are working with the get the best results possible.

Vinyl Weeding Tips

Weeding is the process of removing unwanted vinyl from a design. Adhesive vinyl is often easier to weed than iron vinyl. But with the right tools and some patience, you can get the job done.

Making sure that you have a sharp blade in your cutting machine when you are cutting your vinyl project, this will help you make the weeding process easier. A well-cut project means those unwanted vinyl pieces will come off faster.

Tools You Need for Weeding

The right tools make the job easier! Here are the tools you need to get the job done:

  • One or more weeding tools
  • A craft or x-acto knife
  • Straight or corsage pins
  • Tweezers-long handled and reverse
  • A dentist pick
  • A good overhead light
  • A magnifier of any kind

Using the Project Cutting Mat as a Base

Generally speaking, it is easiest to keep the project on your cutting mat to weed it. The cutting mat will hold the project steady. It also helps to keep a firm grip on the backing as you weed.

Use a Lightbox

If you are really having problems seeing the lines so that you can weed your project, use a lightbox. The light shines through the lines, making them easier to see and weed.

Weeding Small Vinyl Pieces

When you are working with designs that have a lot of detail, it can get tricky to remove those tiny pieces.

  • Make sure to print out a copy of the design so that you can refer to it if you have any questions.
  • Make sure to mirror the image, If you forget, you will wind up with a design that is just not right.
  • Use a vinyl that is easy to weed.
  • If you are right-handed, start on the upper left-hand side of the project. If you are left-handed, start on the upper right-hand side, You will it is easier to weed down and across.
  • You can use a piece of double-sided tape to hold all the small pieces of vinyl that you weed.
  • Take it slow and easy. Going slower and concentrating will save you from making mistakes.
  • When you have completed the weeding process, hold the project up to a light source so that you can make sure that you weeded all the vinyl pieces that needed to be removed.
  • Cut off excess vinyl as you go. This is really specific for adhesive vinyl. Once you start weeding, cut off the excess vinyl as you move across the design. That way, the exposed sticky side will not get stuck to your design and pull it off the back.

Adhesive Vinyl Weeding Tips

  1. Carefully remove all the big pieces of vinyl surrounding your design.
  2. Start in one corner and remove the vinyl at an angle.
  3. In smaller or more intricate designs remove small sections at a time.
  4. Hold the design down with your finger as you remove the sections.

Reverse Weeding

Reverse weeding is when you weed off the transfer tape rather than weeding off the paper backing off the vinyl. This method is best when you have a lot of small parts in your design that you need to stay in place. Weeding off the transfer tape helps the little parts to stay in place because they are stuck to the transfer tape rather than sliding around the vinyl's paper backing.

For this method, you will want to place the transfer tape over your entire design and then pull the paper backing off the vinyl. Once you have the backing off, you will need to weed your design off of the transfer tape.

Adding a Weeding Box Around Your Design

Add a weeding box around your design in the Design Space or Silhouette Studio. Basically, that is putting a rectangle around the outside of the design that you are going to cut. It will give you a clean cut and a straight edge, saving some of the vinyl for later use.

How to Weed Small Letters and Words

  • When laying the unweeded vinyl on the table, right reading, start weeding from the upper right to the lower left.
  • If you have letters that are 1/2′ or smaller try taping out the entire area cut. The letters you need will come up with the vinyl all in one piece. Lay it on the weeding area with the sticky side up and use spring clamps to hold the vinyl down. This makes it so you can weed away the excess without losing the proper alignment of the vinyl.
  • Another method you can try is to cut only a weeding border and no weeding lines, except those needed to separate the letter groupings. Next, weed out the centers of letters such as the holes in A, E, and O – do not weed the rest. Then, cover the lettering in transfer tape like you normally would, remove the backing paper, and apply as usual. From there you should be able to remove the transfer tape and waste vinyl without running the risk.
  • A fourth tip for weeding small letters is to put the vinyl in the freezer after you have cut the vinyl. Leave it in there for about an hour, or until the vinyl shrinks. This will help save time and make the weeding process of small letters easier.

How to Apply Vinyl With the Hinge Method

This is one of the easiest methods to apply vinyl to any surface that you can imagine.

  1. Place the transfer tape over the vinyl, once it has been weeded.
  2. Place a strip of washi tape over the center of the design overlapping the project.
  3. Place your design onto the container, leaving the backer on the adhesive vinyl. Measure your design to make sure it is level and centered. Once you have it where it needs to be, secure it into place using the washi tape.
  4. Peel up one half of your design, off of the vinyl backer.
  5. Use your scissors to trim the backer away.
  6. Place your design on the transfer tape down onto your container.
  7. Use the vinyl application squeegee to smooth out your vinyl design. Peel off the washi tape, then lift the other side and peel off the backer from the vinyl.
  8. Place the other half of the design in place, and smooth it out with the vinyl application squeegee.
  9. Peel off the paper transfer tape, leaving your design behind.

How to Apply a Vinyl Decal

  1. Place your decal on a hard surface.
  2. Use a credit card, gift card or bone folder to firmly rub the transfer tape several times. This is called burnishing.
  3. Turn the project over and burnish the back firmly. This is to make sure that the transfer tape sticks to the project.
  4. With the decal facing down, begin to peel the paper backing offer the clear transfer tape.
  5. Go slowly and make sure that you are peeling from the back, not the front. If anything sticks, burnish it again and then peel again.
  6. Once you have the transfer tape on the decal, place it, sticky side down on your project.
  7. Remove the transfer tape and you are done.

How to Avoid Getting Vinyl Bubbles

I don't know about you, but the most frustrating part of using vinyl on projects is getting those pesky and nasty bubbles. They do not discriminate on which surface and when they will appear. They are like little gnomes that appear out of nowhere.

One thing to think about is how you apply the vinyl to a surface. The best way to apply the vinyl is to lay one corner of the vinyl on the surface. Use an application tool or your fingers to gently rub the vinyl onto the surface as you go.

If you do get a bubble or a wrinkle there is a way to correct the problem. Take an Exacto knife or other sharp tool and gently lift up the vinyl. Smooth out any wrinkles with your finger. Carefully lay it down again.

Did you know that you can lay a project in the sunshine and the bubbles may disappear? It is true. If that does not work, you can take a sewing needle to carefully pop the bubble. You do not want to dig into it or lift it. Just let the air out of it.

If you are using transfer tape with vinyl, you will want to only remove a small portion of the backing on the bottom of the image. Apply it from the bottom up.

Use a large application tool to push against the exposed vinyl to secure it to the surface. Expose the backing gradually as you continue to use the application tool to apply the vinyl to the surface.

Once the image is secure on the surface, remove the transfer tape. If you have another layer, follow the same application.

Applying Vinyl to a Curved Surface

The cause for most of these problems is that the transfer tape (used to move and apply the vinyl design) has very little give to it. In essence, when you are using a larger design to apply blanks on things like tumblers, the transfer tape is working against you.

Ideally, when starting to apply the design to the surface of your blank, you would start in the middle and then apply the design outward. But you have to be careful because the sides of your design can slip and get wonky as you are applying it.

Instead, consider using the hinge method.

The Hinge Method

  1. Create your design on your electronic cutting machine as you normally would.
  2. Cover it with a piece of transfer tape.
  3. Remove the vinyl backing. Don't throw it out - you need to keep it. Cut the piece of backing in half right down the middle.
  4. Now place it back on the transfer tape-covered vinyl leaving just a small gap in the center. This gap is what is going to be used to hold your vinyl decal on the curved surface!
  5. Line up your design so it's straight and centered. Press down just that small area of transfer tape in the middle that's exposed so it sticks to the curved surface. You'll have two flaps on either side that still have the vinyl backing on them, preventing them from sticking to your surface.
  6. Fold one side back and peel off the vinyl backing. Carefully fold it back down onto the surface making sure there are no wrinkles and that it's taunt. You can even use that piece again to quarter off the area you are applying.
  7. Repeat on the other side.
  8. Burnish the entire vinyl decal through the transfer tape and then from one corner peel away the transfer tape.

When you're putting vinyl on mugs and tumblers, the key to making sure it sticks long term is to make sure you pick a thicker font so that each letter has substantial adhesive area and doesn't peel with washing and handling.

How to Get the Wrinkles out of HTV

Before you apply your heat transfer vinyl to the fabric surface make sure to press the surface with a hot iron with no steam.

  1. Turn the t-shirt inside out (the vinyl should be on the inside now).
  2. Set the iron to a low setting.
  3. Gently iron the t-shirt.
  4. Let the vinyl slightly cool.
  5. Peel away the vinyl while warm, or
  6. Toss the t-shirt in the dryer for a few minutes (low or medium heat setting)
  7. Hang it to dry, or
  8. Use a hairdryer on a low setting to warm up the vinyl.
  9. Once it has warmed up, smooth out the wrinkles with your hands.
  10. Lay it flat and let it cool off.

Wrinkling HTV is a common effect that occurs from the laundering process and can happen when applied with an easy press or a heat press. It is possible to remove the wrinkles by placing a heat transfer cover sheet on top of the applied vinyl and pressing for a few seconds.

Using a Steamer

To get rid of the lines from vinyl, use a handheld steam iron.

  1. Firstly, sprinkle clean water to a damp cloth. Then, hold the steamer nozzle at a distance of 1 to ½ inches from the vinyl banner.
  2. Keep moving it on the entire, wrinkled area and you can see the warmth has relaxed the wrinkles.
  3. To protect the adhesive vinyl from breaking, use a Teflon sheet on the printed area and then steam the wrinkled banner. You may also apply the steam at the rear side of the banner.

Spritzing a Banner

For spritzing the creased a printed vinyl banner hangs and clamp the banner to stretch it completely. It is essential to damp cloth using a spray bottle filled with water. Spritz the vinyl banner from both sides very lightly.

As the vinyl dries up, it tightens and stretches deleting the creases completely. You may also use the custom sizes banner stretching frames to hold the vinyl.

You may warm the vinyl banner surface with a hairdryer to get rid of the wrinkles from the vinyl. Don’t ruin the high-quality printed design on the vinyl. Use the heat on the opposite side of the print to avoid spoiling the vinyl.

Heat Presses Used to Apply Heat Transfer Vinyl

There are different ways to apply Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV). The tools that you decide to use to apply HTV to fabric bases, depends on the space that you may have for them as well as your budget for these projects.

Using an Iron

You can use a common home iron to attach your HTV to your projects. The first thing to understand is that you cannot use any steam. You must use a dry iron any time you apply vinyl to fabrics. The second thing to understand about using your home iron is that the iron may have steam holes that will cause uneven heating and pressure.

Can you use an iron? Yes, you can and lots of people do with success. You just need to understand how to get the job done, to get the best results.

Cricut Easy Press

The Cricut Easy Press is a flat plate heat press with temperature and time controls. It comes in different sizes and prices depending on your personal needs. Each of the Easy Press machines comes with the surface to surface heating plates that are ceramic coated. It also includes an insulated base and automatic turn-off. The nice thing about these units, is that they are easy to store and easy to use.

The Circut Easy Press Mini is small and perfect for small projects like hats, sneakers, and stuffed animals. It makes it easy to apply to curved surfaces. 3 heat settings for every iron-on and Infusible Ink™ project. About $70 but if you price it around you can get good deals.

Cricut Easy Press 2-9" by 9" is good for larger products like aprons, towels, and more. It has adjustable heat up to 400 degrees. Also comes with practice materials. It is compatible with most major brands of heat-transfer vinyl and all Infusible Ink™ products The cost is in the vicinity of $210.

Cricut Easy Press 2-12" by 10" is the perfect tool for jumbo projects. It has all the features the other Cricut Easy Press units have but in a larger size. It comes with practice materials. The price is around $280.

Cricut Mug Press

The Cricut Mug Press is a tool made to apply vinyl onto mugs and other types of plastic glasses. Requires Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets, Pens, or Markers & compatible mug blanks (sold separately)Make pro mugs in minutes with easy, one-touch settings

Heat Presses

There are basically two kinds if heat presses, a swing-away press, and a clamshell heat press. They come in a host of different sizes ranging from 15" by 15" all the way up to 16" by 20". Prices can range from $350 to $900.

Many of these have attachments Like mug press, hat press, and more base plates. Many have auto-timers.

The swing-away models have plates (called pattens). where the top plate swings away from the bottom plate. So you need to allow room for the plate when it needs to move.

The clamshell model has a plate that lefts up rather than swinging away from the unit. So you need to consider the space that you have on top of the unit.

How To Correct HTV Booboos

How Big a Piece of Scrap Vinyl Should You Keep?

As a general rule, only keep vinyl scrap pieces that are about two inches. But if a piece is something that you use often, keep it.

How to Store Vinyl Scraps

When you just start out using craft vinyl, you may not have very much in the way of scraps. But as you start working on projects, you are going to find more scraps cluttering your craft space. Keeping it all straight is not too difficult. How you do it depends on how much you have in scraps and how much room you have to store them.

  1. Start with the popular zip lock bags. I really love them. They come in so many different sizes. You can label them with your scraps too.
  2. Stacking wooden boxes. You can get a set and paint them as well as decorate them.
  3. An accordion file another alternative. It has tabs on the top that you can label.
  4. Use a three-ring binder with page protector-Label the protectors with the type of vinyl are in the pockets. You can also store product information and directions in the pockets.
  5. Use a scrapbook album. Similar to the three-ring binder idea except it is larger.. The larger size will accommodate most craft sheets.

How Do I Load More Than One Piece of Scrap Vinyl on a Mat?

Yes, you can in both Silhouette Studio and Cricut Design Studio. It does take a bit of patience and some extra effort. It is easier to stay with one type of vinyl on a mat.

Silhouette Studio

One trick in Sillhouette Studio is to move the pieces to the edges of the mat where they are sticker. You want to mimic the way the vinyl is laid out on your project canvas the same way it appears on your mat. If you draw boxes on your canvas the same way and size that your scraps are laid out, you can work within the boxes and have perfect results. To be safe, draw your boxes a bit smaller than the size of the vinyl and work within that box.

Heat transfer vinyl scraps are fun to work with. They just require a few more steps than regular vinyl. When cutting scrap vinyl HTV, you must first horizontally flip each design before placing it where you want it. select each word or design and flip them horizontally so they stay in the place that matches your mat. At this point in designing, if you want to delete the colored squares, you can- totally just preference.

When you are ready to start cutting, select the boxes that you created and then select "no cut" That way you will just cut the design and not cut into your mat. Remember, also to select the type of vinyl that you are using.

Final Tip for cutting: Place a tiny piece of painter's tape or other low tack tapes on each scrap to make sure they are secure. Just make sure not to place the tape where the blade may cut.
