Cricut Transfer Tape was specifically designed to make transferring vinyl designs to project surfaces a cinch. The clear film with grid makes it simple to position your design right where you want it.
Choosing the right Transfer Tape is easy:
|Transfer Tape||StrongGrip Transfer Tape|
|For use with most vinyl types, especially those with a smooth, non-textured finish.||For vinyl that has a textured finish, such as Glitter Vinyl, Shimmer Vinyl, and True Brushed Vinyl.|
Important: StrongGrip Transfer Tape is too strong for use with other vinyl types.
Note: Both types of Transfer Tape will work with Textured Metallic Vinyl.
What you need:
- Vinyl cut, weeded and ready to transfer
- Transfer Tape or StrongGrip Transfer Tape (see table above to choose the right one for your vinyl type)
- Scraper or other burnishing tool
Apply Transfer Tape
- Peel liner from Transfer Tape.
- Attach a small area of Transfer Tape to your design. This can either be the center or one end of your design.
- Use a Scraper to burnish Transfer Tape onto your design, working outward from where you attached the small area.
- Turn your vinyl over and burnish the back side.
Apply to project surface
- Make sure project surface is clean and dry. Use rubbing alcohol to clean plastic and glass surfaces.
- Peel vinyl liner away from Transfer Tape and design.
- If vinyl doesn't separate from the liner, simply burnish liner back onto the vinyl and peel away again.
- Attach a small area of design onto your surface. This can either be the center or one end of your design.
- Use a Scraper to burnish design onto your surface, working outward from where you attached the small area.
- Peel Transfer Tape away from design.
- Work carefully. If vinyl peels up with Transfer Tape, simply burnish Transfer Tape and vinyl back down to the project surface and peel away again.
- For best results, peel Transfer Tape at an acute angle.
