When you own a cutting machine learning to work with vinyl is very exciting. And learning to layer heat transfer vinyl is a big step in that.

Now let’s talk about the process. The two most important things to remember when layering your heat transfer vinyl are…

Remember, you can use this technique no matter what type of heat transfer layered vinyl project you do. You can just do 2, 3 or even 4 layers of vinyl! I do not recommend more than 4 for quality’s sake.
