The best HTV is the one that works for YOUR project! In general, we always recommend ThermoFlex® Plus– it’s the best in the industry! It’s durable, soft, and comes in just about every color you can think of. If you’re looking for something a little different, click around our different categories of heat transfer vinyl! We only carry the best, so you’re sure to be impressed.
Vinyl typically refers to sticker vinyl or pressure sensitive vinyl. This is the vinyl that will act like a sticker. Heat transfer vinyl, HTV, or iron-on vinyl, is vinyl that is applied with heat. Because it needs heat, you’ll need an iron, an EasyPress, or a press to apply this vinyl.
Kind of! All iron-on vinyl is heat transfer vinyl, but not all heat transfer vinyl is iron-on. What we mean by this is some HTV requires higher heat and pressure than you can get with a hand iron. If you apply this HTV with a hand iron, it’s not likely to last long or to look as good. If you have a hand iron, look for HTVs that go on at lower temperatures and at lower pressures. Good examples of this are ThermoFlex® Turbo and ThermoBanner™ 2.
It depends! Heat transfer vinyl is great for smaller batches of shirts or to personalize things. Screen print is great for larger batches of shirts. For crafters and small businesses, heat transfer vinyl is a great way to create custom shirts without having to invest in screen print. It also offers a wide variety of finishes!
This is going to vary by HTV, but ThermoFlex® Plus is the king of durability. When pressed correctly, this HTV is going to outlast the life of your shirt!
You cut a design in your HTV using a cutter (like Silhouette or Cricut), remove the excess material, and apply the heat transfer vinyl to a shirt using heat.
