What Is Adhesive Vinyl?

Adhesive Vinyl is used as a decorative vinyl for creating signs or craft projects. It has an adhesive back and can be applied to just about any hard surface. Adhesive Vinyl comes in three adhesive strengths – semi-permanent (631), permanent (651), and professional grade.

How Do You Cut Adhesive Vinyl?

 1 – When you cut adhesive vinyl you want to cut on the shiny color. Not on the paper backing.

Scroll down to learn How To Sublimate Ribbon!

customize ribbon with sublimation

You Need:

Here’s How! ;

1 – Design your ribbon print. We did this by measuring the width of the ribbons that we were printing on. Designed a few different versions to size and printed on the Sublimation Printer.


2 – Cut out your design.


3 – Turn on your Heat Press. We set the temperature on our Trans Pro to 400 degrees.

4 – Figure out where you need the design (this depends on what you are making). If you are making a hair bow you will need to print on different sides of the ribbon – see  this article!

5 – Adhere your sublimation printer to your ribbon. We used Adhesive Spray to hold the design in place!


6 – Press your design for 60 seconds and peel hot!


7 – Admire your results!IMG_8968

9 – Tie it up and you are done!


Did you know that you can print on glitter ribbon as well? Just make sure that the material ribbon is 100% Polyester and you are all set!IMG_8969
