Working with Vinyl: Tips & Tricks

Here at Pro World we have customers at all cutting levels, but regardless if you are new to custom goods or a seasoned pro it’s always good to learn a new trick or two. So for today’s blog post we’ve compiled some of our favorite tips and tricks when working with vinyl!

working with vinyl

What’s, What?

When you save your vinyl scraps it can get confusing as to what vinyl is used for what type of application. Here are a few tricks to know what’s, what!

  • HTV has a shiny plastic top so you cut the back, adhesive vinyl has a paper on the back so you cut the front.
  • Need to tell the difference between your EasyPSV adhesive vinyl? Grey grids mean permanent, mint grids mean temporary!
  • Oracal Adhesive vinyl usually has a number on the backing which helps tell it apart. Here’s what the numbers mean: Oracal 651 is shiny and permanent, Oracal 641 is matte and permanent, Oracal 631 is matte and semi-permanent

Cutting Tricks!

  • Always test cut your design to make sure that it is cutting as it should!
  • Place a rectangle around your image before cutting to help you weed your design.
  • If you have an intricate design slow down the cutting speed.
  • When cutting multiple vinyl colors on your silhouette machine you can make cutting easier by cutting by color fill.
  • Want to cut multiple images of the same design with your Silhouette? Use the fill page button

Application Tips

  • When layering adhesive vinyl use guides to help line up where the vinyl goes. You can do this by adding small rectangles to the outside of your project. Line up the rectangles and your image is as it should be.
  • Occasionally the adhesive vinyl won’t stick to a surface because of the way that it was treated. You can usually make it stick by spraying an adhesive spray onto the hard surface.
  • Use a pressing pillow for HTV for an even pressing area.
  • Combine heat transfers and HTV for a luxury result

How To Heat Press Bumps & Bulk

Applying transfers, sublimation and HTV to a garment is simple with a heat press. As long as you know how to position your garment.

how to press

When you have a garment with buttons, zippers, pockets, or bulky seams, it can be challenging to position your garment flat on the heat press platen, which is why you would thread the garment. Threading means you put the bottom platen between the shirt so that just one layer of fabric is on the press instead of laying the garment down flat. Doing so helps you create a smooth surface to apply your design!

Want to see threading in action? Watch our past Facebook Live.

Another option besides threading is using a pressing pillow or a perfect pad.

When you use a pressing pillow you insert the pillow into the garment, so that the bulky obstacles sinks into the pillow (for instance a zipper won’t stick out causing printing issues) and eliminate the pressure points creating a smooth area.

Sof-fusion pressing pillows

Whereas when you use a Perfect Pad it raises the printing area to work around the bulky elements. When using the pad it should be inserted directly under the area where the design will go, and not under any zippers, buttons, seams or anything creating an uneven surface because the Perfect Pads purpose is to maintain even pressure.

 

Now that you know how to press bumps and bulk what are you going to press?
