What is adhesive vinyl? Adhesive vinyl is going to be vinyl that has a backing that is coated in adhesive so you can start attaching it to surfaces as soon as it’s cut. Vinyl itself is a bright and shiny material that’s versatile and thin. Once you cut out your design, adhesive vinyl will work similarly to a sticker or decal.
How can I tell if my vinyl is iron-on? You’ll be able to feel that it’s a different texture than a self-adhesive and instead of a white backing paper with gridlines it’ll have a clear plastic coating. You can also double-check the packaging and make sure to keep your self-adhesive vinyl separate from your heat-transfer.
Is self-adhesive vinyl permanent? Self-adhesive vinyl can last a very long time on surfaces with the proper care and placement. You’ll want to make sure your surfaces are clean and dust-free before applying the vinyl and you may even want to wipe down your surface with an alcohol wipe. Once you apply your decal, make sure to smooth out any bubbles so you’ll have a good surface to adhere to. If you carefully wash or wipe off the decal when it’s dirty, it should be able to last for a long time.
Is all vinyl heat transfer? No, only vinyl that’s marked heat-transfer will be able to be applied with heat. The adhesive is different from regular self-adhesive so if you weren’t using heat-transfer vinyl and adding heat, it could potentially melt or ruin your project.
Using vinyl is a great way to add a personal touch to your items like water bottles, laptops, cellphones, and more. Plus, you can throw your heat transfer vinyl designs into the wash, although we would suggest washing your designs inside out. The durable material will stay bright and scratch-resistant so you’ll have a design for a long time. If you don’t have a cutting machine, that’s okay! Simply grab a sharp craft knife and cut out your design by hand. The vinyl is thin so you won’t have any difficulty cutting through.
