Ask the Expert!

Tanya Asked : "
Hello Seam Team, I am new to working with heat transfer vinyl, and want to do a design with multiple colours. Can I Layer Heat Transfer Vinyl? I wanted to use regular Heat Transfer vinyl, and maybe glitter or flock as well. Thanks!"

Expert Answer: "Hello Tanya, great question! You absolutely can layer Heat Transfer Vinyl quite successfully but it takes a little bit of planning. First take into account the type of vinyl. For now we are going to be talking about the vinyl carried here at That Sewing Place.

Premium Plus is happy to be layered. It is not complicated, just be sure to shorten the time you press the garment, so that as you apply more layers, the first ones don't get overcooked. Shortening the time by about 3 - 5 seconds is usually good, just be sure to check to make sure its stuck to the fabric before removing the carrier.

Glitter can be layered, but only if it is the top layer. If you try to layer on top of glitter it will not stick.

Flock can also be layered, again only if it the top layer. If you use flock underneath a layer, you will get a ghosting effect because it has extra thickness.

Specialty vinyls like metallic, glaze, and such may be able to be layered, but it's best to always do a test run with the materials you have to be sure, because they are all unique.

Puffy Foam can be layered, but because it is thicker it isn't the first choice for layering.

Foil can be layered, and with some really cool effects! Be mindful though, because foil doesn't stretch, it doesn't like to be layered with other vinyls that do on a garment with stretch. Best to layer foil of different colours, or put it over top of another vinyl.

Now you know which vinyls can be layered, you can plan our your design!

Don't forget to use Thermo-Tape to secure each layer in place before heat pressing, as well as your cover sheet to protect your Platen (the hot part of your heat press or iron) and your design.
