The Captivating Variants
This amazing vinyl is available in the regular and puff variant at TeckWrap Craft. Glow in the Dark heat transfer vinyl is a fantastic material designed to create fascinating designs which give off a striking glow. How does it work? Like regular heat transfer vinyl, in which the adhesive can only be activated once heat and pressure are applied.
The base vinyl is available in many colors and often comes with a smooth matte finish. But what about the glow? Our vinyl gets its illuminating properties from phosphorescent pigments. The pigments are carefully blended with the base vinyl when the product is being manufactured. These pigments absorb ambient light and glow when the design is placed in darkness.
Both our regular and puff Glow in the Dark HTV have the same mechanism hence you will have to expose them to light during daytime so as to ‘charge’ them to perform in the dark. However, with the latter, the design also puffs up. This means when heat and pressure are applied to it, it expands and gives a three-dimensional effect. It seems that the design is protruding out of the fabric and when it glows once the lights are out, the overall effect is truly mesmerizing.
Our Glow in the Dark heat transfer vinyl is highly durable and long-lasting. When applied correctly, it lasts numerous washes without losing its vibrance and splendor. Though our HTV shows the best results on cotton and polyester, it can be used on other types of fabrics and surfaces as well. It is eco-friendly and non-toxic so you can apply it on clothing without worrying about health hazards. Kids love to have the Puff Glow in the Dark HTV on their t-shirts for the magic it entails.
Both the variants of our Glow in the Dark vinyl are available in a number of colors so you can choose the one that best complements your garment. These include neon shades as well. The 5ft roll is enough to make several superb designs to transform your wardrobe or gift to friends and family.
Ease Of Application
Our Glow in the Dark heat transfer vinyl is thin, lightweight, and stretchable - which means that cutting and weeding your design will be a breeze! The process for applying it to a surface is the same as the application process for any regular heat transfer vinyl. You’ll need a few simple tools: a vinyl cutter, a cutting mat, a weeding tool, a heat press, and a Teflon cover sheet.
Choose a design and finalize it on the software that comes with your cutting machine. Make sure to mirror it and adjust the dimensions according to the area on your fabric. You might need a measuring tape for this. Place a piece of our Glow in the Dark HTV, dull side up, on the cutting mat and load it into the machine. Once the design is carved, it’s time to weed out the negative vinyl.
You can use the weeding tools available at TeckWrap Craft such as the tweezer, weeder, or weeding pen. Take out the extra vinyl until you have your desired image. Place the design, shiny side up, on the surface, you want to apply it to. Cover the design with a Teflon sheet and press using a heat press machine.
The heat and pressure will activate the adhesive making the vinyl design securely bond to the fabric. For regular Glow in the Dark vinyl, the settings will be 300℉ to 315℉ (149℃ to 157℃) for 8-12 seconds with medium pressure. For our Puff Glow in the Dark vinyl, the temperature and pressure settings will be the same but the time duration will be 10-15 seconds.
Once the time is up, remove the Teflon sheet and slowly take off the carrier sheet after the vinyl has cooled down slightly. Your amazing design and a revamped shirt are ready to captivate!
