Transfer Tape For Vinyl


Transfer Tape

Transfer tape is one of the most important tools in the arsenal of an avid crafter. It is a thin, pressure-sensitive film with a sticky backing that is used to transfer adhesive vinyl decals, stickers, and graphics to compatible surfaces. It comes with or without a grid and ensures perfect installation. TeckWrap Craft brings you its supreme quality product that will elevate your crafts to the next level. 

Our Range Of Transfer Tapes

At TeckWrap Craft, we have an array of transfer tapes to cater to different materials, applications, and finishes. They are not only available in different tack levels but also in varying sizes. Here’s what you can get with us:

  • Grid Transfer Tape: As evident from the name, this tape has a grid on it that helps in the correct placement of the design on a substrate. You will get two lengths in it with a 12” width, 10ft and 82ft. It is available in black and red grid. 

Ease Of Application

Our selection of transfer tapes is easy to work with, allowing for straightforward application, positioning adjustments, and removal of the backing. You should have the right tape according to the vinyl you are using and a squeegee to smooth it out. 

All the tools you will need for the perfect transfer are easily available at TeckWrap Craft such as the premium quality adhesive vinyl squeegee, weeding tools, and a cutting mat. Once you have cut the design on the automated cutting machine and weeded out the extra vinyl, follow the steps mentioned below:

  1. Cut the size of the transfer tape to at least half an inch bigger than the actual vinyl design. Remove its backing and place the transfer tape on your vinyl design so that it sticks to it. 
  2. Smooth it out with a squeegee removing any creases or air bubbles on the transfer tape. Turn the decal around and use the squeegee on the backing of the vinyl as well. Use slight pressure to ensure perfect adhesion of the design to the transfer tape. 
  3. With the backing of the vinyl facing up (the transfer tape facing down), slowly remove the release liner from the vinyl design at an angle making sure it has stuck to the transfer tape. If you see some of the design still sticking to its backing, reapply it, burn it with the squeegee again, and then remove the liner. 
  4. The design should now be adhered to the transfer tape. Place it on the substrate of your choice. Take into account the straight and accurate positioning. The grid lines on the tape will help you with this.  
  5. Place the design on the surface and smooth it out with a squeegee pressing from the center outwards. This will remove the creases and also help in the proper adhesion of the vinyl design to the blank you are using. Apply pressure to the design so that it sticks securely. 
  6. Once it is done, start at one corner and slowly peel the transfer tape at a 45-degree angle. Take your time and it will come out perfectly without leaving any air bubbles. You will see a nice and flawless design transferred onto your base material.

Tips For Effectively Using Our Transfer Tape

We present to you the proper way to use transfer tape in order to avoid any errors and waste of materials. Here are some tips you should remember:

  • It is important to use the transfer tape with the right tack level according to your design and the type of vinyl you are working with if you want a perfect application. 
  • When cutting the transfer tape, make sure that the size is slightly bigger than the adhesive craft vinyl design preferably ½ inch from all sides.
  • After you have applied the transfer tape to your design and burnished it with a squeegee front and back, let it sit for a minute before removing it to allow it to bond. 
  • Whether you’re custom-printing on glass or plastic, the surface should be cleaned with a cotton pad and alcohol before transferring the vinyl. Do not forget to dry it completely. 
  • Reuse the transfer tape 3-4 times as long as its adhesive is still intact. Make sure to reapply the paper backing of the transfer tape to maintain its tack level.
  • Work slowly when transferring the vinyl and burnish it properly. Pressure helps in adherence.
  • If the vinyl comes off when you are lifting the transfer tape after the work is done, stick it back and try burnishing again.
  • When removing the transfer tape after applying the design, work very slowly. Remove the tape at a 45-degree angle and do not lift vertically. Keep it closer to the surface. 
  • If you’re working on curved surfaces, cut a small portion of the corners of the transfer tape to ensure proper transfer.
