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.
