Step By Step Guide How To Use Glitter Iron-On Vinyl

In this post, we'll show you how to use glitter iron on vinyl with a heat press.

Step 1: Cut Your Design

Since glitter iron on vinyl is thicker than normal sheets of paper or plastic, it's important that you cut it properly so that it doesn't get stuck in the cutting blades of your machine. With an X-acto knife, cut out your design. You can also use scissors but make sure they're sharp since they'll be working against the thick material of the glitter iron on the vinyl sheet.

Step 2: Peel Off The  Backing Paper

Peel off the backing paper from one side of the glitter iron on a vinyl sheet. Make sure you leave the other side intact so that you don't get any glue on your hands or fingers when pressing down on it later in the next step.

Here Are Some Tips For Using Glitter Iron-On Vinyl:

  • Apply heat evenly to the fabric. Use a low temperature setting and apply even heat to the fabric to prevent burning or melting.
  • Iron on glitter in small sections. If you want to cover an entire garment, iron on glitter in small sections and then stitch the pieces together.
  • Wash your garment before applying the vinyl. This will help prevent any bleeding or smudging of colors during application.
  • Use a good-quality heat press. If your heat press doesn't get hot enough or doesn't have enough pressure, you won't be able to transfer the vinyl to your project.
  • Prepare your project by cutting out the shape of your design. Make sure there's plenty of space around the edges so that when you apply the vinyl it doesn't stick to anything other than itself.
  • Remove the backing layer from the glitter iron-on vinyl, leaving only the adhesive layer intact. Place this adhesive side down onto the wrong side of your fabric or paper and rub it down with an applicator tool until you're happy with how it looks and feels in place.
  • Heat up your iron on high (no steam) and press down on the glitter iron-on vinyl for about 15 seconds with no steam. Until it's warm enough to melt through the adhesive layer but not hot enough to damage your project or cause any color bleeding from other layers of material that are underneath it.
  • Always use an ironing sheet when applying vinyl designs with glitter.

Conclusion

As we've shown you, glitter iron-on vinyl is a design material that you can use when you want something to stand out. While it's not used as often as ordinary iron-on materials, this type of HTV can be the perfect tool when you want to add some sparkle. The lightweight, adaptable vinyl will allow you to easily decorate your shirts to match any mood or occasion, and it's incredibly easy to work with.
