Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV)
Heat transfer vinyl is an ultra-thin polyurethane film with a clear backing layer. The design is “cut out” using a specialised plotter which cuts through only the vinyl layer (approx. 1/4 of a mm) leaving the clear layer untouched. The unwanted areas of the design are removed, leaving only the design on the clear backing paper. This is then transferred to the garment using heat and pressure.
