Cutting & Weeding Glitter Pattern HTV

Unlike most HTV, our Pattern HTV is cut differently than you would expect. In fact, the application process is more similar to Oracal 651 adhesive vinyl. You see, because we print our patterns in-house, they do not come with carrier sheets, so that's why we recommend purchasing a TTD Hight Tack Mask to go with them. As a result, you're going to cut the pattern face-up and you do not have to mirror your letters like you would for Siser EasyWeed. If you are cutting an intricate design, we would recommend using a squeegee to make sure the pattern sticks properly to the TTD Hight Tack-Mask. You will then remove the backing sheet (white shiny side) before pressing it onto your shirt.

Heating Glitter Pattern HTV

Glitter HTV Patterns are considered a specialty vinyl, so we would strongly recommend using a heat press as opposed to a home iron when using this type of vinyl. Heat Settings for our Glitter Pattern HTV are 305° F (151.6° C) for 15 seconds. It is a hot peel vinyl, which means you are going to want to peel off the TTD High Tack Mask almost immediately after you press. Make sure you save your TTD Hight Tack Mask after you peel, because it is indeed reusable.

Our unique variety of Glitter HTV Patterns can only be found at Clean Cut Graphics along with other great HTV & Adhesive vinyl products.
