Step 1

Choose your graphic of choice and make sure your measurements are accurate before sending to your cutter. I’m using a Cricut and will reference that. Make sure your image is mirrored or flipped in Design Space before you begin your cut. If not, the image will appear backwards on the shirt.

Step 2

Place your HTV on the Cricut Mat shiny side down. For Glow in the Dark HTV, remove yellow film and place shiny side down on mat.

Step 3

Set your heat press or iron to 310 degrees while your machine is cutting.

Step 4

Once your machine is done cutting, trim the excess vinyl away so you don’t have to waste all that scrap material! I like to cut away as much vinyl as possible. It’s just easier for me handle when I do it this way. I recommend weeding your vinyl while it’s still on the mat. 

Step 5

Place your blank shirt on your press and apply pressure for three 3 second bursts, this helps prep the material for the vinyl. Once the shirt is heated, arrange your design on your shirt.

Step 6

Place your smooth HTV on your shirt liner side up (vinyl down) and cover with a Teflon sheet. Press down for 10 seconds without a teflon sheet and then 15 seconds with a teflon sheet. Let cool for 10 seconds and peel carrier sheet away. Apply Glow in the Dark HTV to shirt. Apply press for 10 seconds. Wait 10 seconds and peel away carrier sheet.
