Want to go straight to the correct settings? Here they are:
Create your design using your favourite design software.
Cut your design (always in reverse with HTV) using a cutting plotter. Make sure the glossy side is facing down.
Weed out the unused vinyl from the design.
Using a heat press or iron, apply the HTV to your chosen surface with the clear carrier sheet (shiny side) up using medium pressure for the correct amount of time.
Remove the carrier sheet whilst still hot (or cold for Glitter only).
Now marvel at your amazing creation and then share it for the world to see!
