  • The Significance Of Grids On Our Transfer Tapes

    The grids on our transfer tapes are an indicator of their different tack levels. It also serves as a visual guide, aiding the precise alignment and positioning of designs. It helps prevent misplacement and ensures accurate application of decals, letters, or graphics onto appropriate surfaces. The grid assists in maintaining consistent spacing and orientation, resulting in a professional finish and reducing the likelihood of errors during the transfer process.

    The Yellow Grid: This is the transfer tape with the strongest tack level. It is excellent to use with glitter vinyl or anything with texture on it. Though it has a strong tack, it is not difficult to lift once the design is transferred and it does not leave any residue behind.  

    The Gray Grid: It is a notch below the yellow grid tape in stickiness. It works well with specialty adhesive vinyl films like reflective vinyl and opal vinyl

    The Purple Grid: This transfer tape has medium tack. You can use it when working with our amazing 001 series of matte and glossy adhesive vinyl. The dark-colored grid lines help in the placement of the vinyl design accurately. 

    The Red and Black Grid: These are exactly the same as the purple grid transfer tape with one exception, the backing of the red and black grid tapes is semi-translucent and helps in layering the designs. 

    Matte Transfer Tape: This is also low-tack tape with no grid lines. It also helps in transferring layered designs.

    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. 

    Once you have cut the design 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 paper backing and place the transfer tape on your vinyl so that it sticks to it. 
    2. Smooth it out with a squeegee removing any creases or air bubbles on the transfer tape. When you are sure it has adhered, slowly remove the backing of the vinyl.
    3. 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.  
    4. 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. 
    5. 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. 

    Tips For Effectively Using Our Transfer Tape

    In the future, for sure, you’ll have plenty of custom-printing projects coming your way. In this case, you need to be equipped with the proper ways to use transfer tape in order to avoid any errors and waste of materials. Here are some tips you should remember when using transfer tape:

    • When cutting the transfer tape, make sure that the size is slightly bigger than the adhesive craft vinyl design. To give you an idea, the transfer tape should be ½ inch bigger than the vinyl design from all sides.
    • Always clean the substrate. 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 return 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.
    • Vinyl sticks best to smooth and flat surfaces. It is hard to transfer vinyl into textured surfaces like unfinished wood or walls.
    • If you’re working on curved surfaces, cut a small portion of the corners of the transfer tape to ensure proper transfer.
    • Stock up with transfer tapes of different grip or tack types. As mentioned, there’s a specific type of transfer tape for different vinyl films. That’s why if you expect to work on various kinds of projects in the future, it is best to stock up on different transfer tapes. Using the wrong type may lead to wasted effort.
