Thermal Vinyl Coach Guide
Use a sharpie to draw your design on shiny side of the heat transfer vinyl. This is the “up” side.
Use scissors to cut out your design. Use a hobby or safety knife if you have a detailed image.
Place vinyl shiny side up on your fabric. Lay cover sheet over it and apply iron on “cotton / high”
Check for bubbles under plastic. If edge releases, peel off plastic. It’s ok to heat longer!
While the shiny side is still warm gently peel away. Cover and add finishing heat to sticker.
Repeat steps to add layers of additional colors or details to your design! It can be laundered!
Clean up is easy - remember to turn off iron!
