Heat Transfer Vinyl (or HTV for short) is a type of decorative vinyl film that can be cut and heat pressed onto t-shirts, apparel and other fabric surfaces. Heat transfer vinyl is manufactured in a variety of styles including solid color, fluorescents, glitter, printed patterns, holographics, flock, reflectives and more. HTV is normally available in rolls, by-the-foot and in sheets of various sizes.
The equipment needed to apply heat transfer vinyl includes a vinyl cutter, a heat press, and a few accessories such as a heat transfer cover sheet and a "weeding" tool. Weeding vinyl is the process of removing the waste HTV from the cut design. Some heat transfer vinyl films can also be applied with a standard hand iron.
