Stahls' High Build 3D HTV Application

How To Apply Stahls' High Build 3D HTV

Add an extra dimension to designs with an extra thick rubber, fashion look

At 1mm (1000microns) this is the thickest vinyl we have. If you are looking for an extra raised look on bags, caps, hoodies or jackets. Then this is the vinyl for you.


Step One

Cut out your design in the Heat Transfer Vinyl using a cutter. In this video we use the Graphtec CE-7000-60.

Cutter Guidelines for Graphtec:

Blade: 60°

Force: 24-26

Offset: 0

Speed: 30cm/s

Step Two

Once your design is cut, it's time to weed. To speed up this process we have a range of products available including the Stahls' LED Weeder (used in this video) and the EZ Weeding Table which is perfect to really speed up the process if you are weeding from an entire metre or roll of HTV.

Step Three

Before you fuse your HTV always Pre-Press the garment! 5 seconds with a Hotronix Heat Press will remove any creases on the garment and ensure any moisture is gone before the transfer is applied.

Step Four

Fuse your HTV to the garment using a Heat Press.

Glitter HTV Application Instructions:

Time: 10 Seconds

Temp: 150°c Pressure: Medium (4-6 on a Hotronix Heat Press)

Peel: Hot
