  • Tip 1 Perfect Temperature
    Make sure you're using the correct temperature as recommended by the manufacturer. If the temperature is lesser than what’s recommended, the iron-on/HTV will not stick. If the temperature is higher than what’s recommended, the iron-on/HTV will melt and shrink. 
    It's also important to ensure the heat is even. The way around this is to keep a table of ideal temperature as recommended by the manufacturer for each of the vinyl that you use. 
  • Tip 2 Pressure 
    Apply pressure as recommended by the manufacturer. Pressure plays a huge role in creating a successful iron-on project. If the correct pressure is not used, the chances of the iron-on/HTV peeling off after a wash increases. So, to avoid this, always use the correct pressure as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Tip 3 Follow the application instructions
    There are around 10+ different types of iron-on/HTV available in the market ( Everyday Iron-On, Foil, Metallic, Glitter, Mosaic, etc). Each of these iron-on/HTV require different application settings for the projects to last. Some require the garment to be pre-washed, while some don’t. Some require the garment to be flipped and pressed while others don’t. Therefore, to ensure your projects don't peel and withstand multiple washes it’s extremely IMPORTANT to follow the manufacturer’s application and washing instructions.

It can be pretty difficult to keep track of all the different instructions therefore I created this amazing extremely detailed vinyl guide to keep by your side while you’re working with iron-on/HTV or any other type of vinyl.

In my Ultimate Life-Saver Vinyl Guide for Beginners, I’ve listed down the ideal application and washing instructions for two of the most popular brands; Cricut and Siser so you can quickly flip through the guide before starting the project to get an idea about what’s recommended by the manufacturer for the best resultsThis guide will save you time and sanity while working on vinyl projects.

Finally, you can create gorgeous vinyl projects even if you're a beginner!
