Capitalize on Fall/Winter Business by showing heat transfer flock applications with your heat press.
Last week’s Tip Jar Tutorial taught you all about the offset setting on your vinyl cutter and when you need to change it. We mentioned specifically that you would need to adjust the offset when changing out blades to higher degree angles. The reason to switch to a higher degree blade is to cut the material that headlines this edition of Tip Jar – CAD-CUT® Flock.
So get your 60 degree blades out, adjust your offset to .40 if you have a Roland GX-24 cutter and let’s get crazy with a two color heat applied flock application. If you don’t have a GX-24, no worries – almost any type of cutter can cut this material.
This tutorial is jam packed with tips from none other than our newest CADCUTdirect.com team member, Ed Kent. Ed brings a unique style to our team and has designed this garment from start to finish. He reached into deep into his arsenal and brought out not one, but two heat press pillows to help with the application. You’ll see him do a two color sleeve print and also use the pillow to make the front of the hooded sweatshirt easier to heat press.
Ed also has pulled a Tip Jar first, you’ll see it at the end of the video along with his million dollar smile:)
