looking at their site, looks like a whole bunch of different types, too.

you can select your store and see which ones have it in stock. looks like almost all of it is in stock at the michaels closest to me.

Yup - any of HTV rolls that are 36” long including metal, glitter, puff and flock.

Worth mentioning tho that flock is not laser safe, contains pvc.

Some of those are normally $24.99. I might have left the store with 17 19 rolls…

WTG Siser! I should write and ask them to do settings for EasyWeed Stretch, that stuff is GREAT.

Fun with my Michael’s purchases and some PG.
The closest color Aura PG settings work great on the Siser :slightly_smiling_face:

This is cute and was a great idea. I purchased white so I could put decals on tumblers. I hope it works :crossed_fingers:t5:as well as yours.

Just so you know…if you’re using an Aura…it won’t cut white or light colors.

I have the GF Pro. It’ll be my first time using any type of vinyl transfer.

This only applies to acrylics and other thick plastics.

Aura cuts white and light colored HTVs just fine including the clear carrier sheet.
There’s both white (used in the jacket above) and a pastel set of PG Eco Iron.

Aura also cuts/engraves any color paper or wood product.

Do you have a tumbler heat press? These Eco Irons and other HTVs aren’t self adhesive like sticker/decal vinyl. They need heat to transfer from the carrier sheet.

Thank you…I didn’t know that. That’s what happens when one assumes… :slightly_smiling_face:

Would a heat press work for iron on like that? Would the result be any better than self-adhesive vinyl from a craft cutter? I was reading a conversation in my work’s makerspace group earlier about sublimation printers. I can’t justify getting one for myself just to make the occasional novelty mug, but I still did some fantasy shopping, and I noticed you can get something like https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CG166NWM for fairly cheap… and I already have a Glowforge.

That’s a good find!

I haven’t personally tried putting HTV//Eco Iron on hard surfaces yet. Given that there’s a ton of new GF graphics in the catalog shown on mugs, etc it seems like they’re encouraging it?
A heat press is definitely helpful for fabric items.

Whether it’s better than adhesive vinyl or not, I cannot say, but since you can’t put regular vinyl decal in a Glowforge…
