What About Printable HTV Or Printable Heat Transfer Vinyl?

Typically, there are two kinds of printable HTV, one kind to apply to light colors, and another to apply for dark colors.


Printable heat transfer vinyl is used the same way as regular HTV but at a higher temperature and pressure. Normally, HTV requires a temperature of 305F or 320F. Printable HTV will require a higher temperature and pressure.

For dark materials:
Press at 350 Degrees for 30 Seconds under MEDIUM pressure
For light materials:
Press at 375 Degrees for 30 Seconds under HIGH pressure (heat press highly recommended)
Because of the higher temperatures, it’s highly recommended that you use a heat press and not an iron. Most irons don’t have even heat distribution, are small, and aren’t hot enough.

The Cricut EasyPress 2 can work with enough pressure, as it does have even temperature and can heat up to 400 degrees.

How Do You Wash Printable Heat Transfer Vinyl?

With any iron-on transfers, you want designs to stay intact wash after wash. The best way to wash your iron-on to make them the longest is:

Wash inside out
Use cold water
Tumble dry on low heat or hang to dry
