Using River City Foil Heat Transfer Vinyl is a simple process that can add a touch of metallic brilliance to your creative projects. Here are step-by-step directions to guide you through the application process:
Materials You’ll Need:
- River City Foil Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Cutting machine (with a compatible blade)
- Weeding tool
- Heat press or iron
- Teflon or parchment paper
- Garment or substrate for application
Step 1: Design and Cut
- Begin by creating your design in a design software program. Ensure that the design is the desired size and is mirrored (flipped horizontally) as you will be applying it face-down.
- Load the River City Foil Heat Transfer Vinyl into your cutting machine with the shiny side (foil side) down. Make sure the adhesive side is facing up.
- Adjust the settings on your cutting machine to match the recommended settings for the vinyl. Typically, a standard vinyl or heat transfer vinyl setting is suitable.
- Cut your design. The cutting machine will precisely cut through the vinyl but leave the carrier sheet intact.
Step 2: Weeding
- After cutting, carefully weed away the excess vinyl using a weeding tool. Your design should remain on the carrier sheet, with only the parts you want to transfer still attached.
Step 3: Heat Press Application
- Preheat your heat press to the recommended temperature for the River City Foil Heat Transfer Vinyl, typically around 305°F (150°C).
- Place the garment or substrate on the heat press and smooth out any wrinkles or folds.
- Position your weeded design (still on the carrier sheet) onto the garment with the foil side facing up. Ensure proper alignment.
- Cover the design and garment with a Teflon or parchment paper sheet to protect them from direct heat.
- Press the design onto the garment using medium pressure for about 10-15 seconds at the recommended temperature. Adjust the pressure and time according to your specific heat press and vinyl.
Step 4: Cooling and Peeling
- After the pressing time is complete, carefully lift the heat press and remove the Teflon or parchment paper.
- Allow the garment to cool down for a few seconds. You can expedite the cooling process by moving the garment to a cooler surface.
- Once the design has cooled, gently peel away the carrier sheet, leaving the metallic foil design adhered to the garment.
Step 5: Final Touches
- To ensure a lasting bond, consider placing a Teflon sheet or parchment paper over the applied design and heat pressing it for an additional 2-3 seconds.
- Wait at least 24 hours before washing the garment. When washing, turn the garment inside out and use a mild detergent. Avoid bleach or other harsh chemicals.
By following these steps, you’ll be able to successfully apply River City Foil Heat Transfer Vinyl and achieve a stunning metallic finish on your garments or other creative projects.
