Metal HTV: how do I apply it?

Make sure the t-shirt is wrinkle-free and moisture-free before ironing. In order to determine where the shirt’s center is, fold it in half and iron/press a crease line down the middle. Next, fold and crease Metal’s carrier, then align it with the t-shirt’s crease line (usually about 3 fingers down from the collar).

  • Heat Press
  1. On the garment, place the design
  2. Design should be applied at 130-140°C for 12-15 seconds (medium pressure).
  3. Cold peel carrier
  • Home Iron
  1. The garment should be placed on a hard, flat surface (an ironing board is not recommended).
  2. Use a cotton setting on the home iron. Steam is not allowed
  3. On the entire design, press firmly with the iron for 15 seconds. For large designs, press each section for 15 seconds
  4. Cold peel carrier
  5. For 15 seconds, cover with parchment paper and lightly move the iron across the entire design

HTV metal layering: how do I do it?

You can create a unique look by combining heat transfer vinyl with other colors and effects!

If you are designing with YGM Metal, remember that it can be layered only as a “top layer”, so ensure you don’t layer another HTV on top.

Here are some tips and tricks

  • To keep the Metal HTV as shiny as possible, do not press it a second time.
  • Feel free to re-press the Metal sections as well when applying the other HTV if you prefer the hammered look.
