We think heat transfer vinyl and we immediately think shirts, lots and lots of shirts. Almost as if we’re robotic about it. Day in and day out…
- Plot your design.
- Send it to your cutter.
- Weed while the machine cuts the next design.
- Repeat. Repeat. Repeat…
But what if we take a minute and think outside the box (or in this case the shirt)?
The possibilities extend beyond the normal wearable fabrics and into our home or office.
Surprising Home Surfaces for Heat Transfer Vinyl
Heat transfer vinyl (HTV) can be used on more than just the standard 100% cotton. Try HTV, such as our exclusive line of Xpress Cut Vinyl, on these surfaces:
- Wood. (Ensure the wood has a smooth surface. HTV can be used on raw, stained, or painted wood.)
- Fabric other than wearables. (Try HTV on dish towels, placemats, blankets, and more.)
- Sports Balls. (Yes, really. Customize footballs, basketballs, and more.)
- Metal. (Ensure your metal is clean and smooth.)*
Make sure to test your HTV on each surface before applying your entire design, and purchase extra vinyl and product blanks.
*Do not wash in the dishwasher.

We’re excited to announce our latest line of wall vinyl now available in our online store: FDC 4301 Series Removable Vinyl in Satin and Matte finishes.
This calendered vinyl is 3.0 mil thick and perfect for creating wall graphics, medium-term signs, and decals. It removes cleanly without any adhesive residue and offers one year of outdoor durability. Currently we offer two colors: black and white.
When It’s Time to Cut
We recommend cutting the FDC 4301 Series with our line of Graphtec cutters, the CE6000 models or FC8600 models) for the highest precision and speed. For hobbyists or vinyl beginner, use the latest model of Silhouette Cameo as it offers a better grip on the vinyl than older Silhouette models.
Helpful Tip: When cutting sign vinyl, cut with the colored side up. There is no need to mirror or flip the image! Always perform a cut test if possible to determine the best blade depth. You can start with standard vinyl settings and adjust accordingly.
We also suggest using the FDC 2602 Series paper application tape to apply the vinyl to your choice of material. If you desire a higher tack tape, the 2612 Series medium tack R-Tape is also compatible with this vinyl.
