They have a great color range – 47 colors available
It cuts very well – I use the Cricut Explore Air 2 with the standard blade
It applies and adheres very well
Most Glitter HTV can be applied with any heat pressing device. This includes household irons, the Cricut Easy Press, or a heat press. I’ve been mostly using my heat press machine for applying Siser glitter HTV because it’s just a lot quicker and easier.
What Can Glitter Iron-On Be Applied To?
You can apply glitter heat transfer vinyl to a ton of different surfaces.
T-shirts, baby onesies, sweatshirts, or most cotton or poly/cotton blend fabrics
Canvas (for example, a glitter vinyl reverse canvas project)
Accessories like tote bags, purses, pencil cases, etc.
Caps and hats
Glitter Vinyl Sheets
Siser Glitter Vinyl comes in a huge range of colors. The 12 pack of glitter vinyl sheets pictured left, includes Black, Blue, Red, Gold, Silver, Purple, Grass Green, Neon Pink, Neon Blue, Black Gold, Light Multi (love this one!), and White glitter heat transfer vinyl.
Cricut Glitter Iron On Vinyl is another premium glitter HTV. You can always be sure that you are getting a quality product with Cricut. Available in a ton of colors with great names like ‘glitter grape’ and ‘glitter multi pink’.
And the last glitter iron on vinyl sheets recommendation is MAREA! A lesser known brand (that I haven’t personally used), that is well reviewed. It’s another great glitter HTV starter bundle with a range of colors measuring 10 x 12 inches.
I use the Cricut Explore Air 2 and I simply set my dial to ‘Custom’ and then select ‘Glitter Iron On’ from the custom settings. This worked well for cutting Siser Glitter HTV. I don’t tend to put my machine on fast cut though, especially when cutting more intricate designs.
Glitter HTV is so glittery that it can be especially difficult to see the cut lines when weeding your design. I recommend using weeding boxes in Cricut Design Space so that you can easily see where your design starts and finishes. Another option is to weed your HTV under a bright light or use a product like the Cricut BrightPad.
Applying glitter HTV is much the same as applying any other iron on vinyl.
It can be applied with:
a heat press
the Cricut EasyPress
a home iron
One thing that you cannot do with glitter vinyl that you can with many others, is layer it below another vinyl. Glitter vinyl can be layered on top of other vinyls (such as standard Siser Easyweed), but it should not be used as a base layer when layering.
Apply Glitter Iron On With An Iron
Set dial to between the cotton and linen setting
Place garment on a hard, flat surface to press (I use a wooden chopping board)
Pre-iron garment to remove wrinkles and moisture
Set design in position
Use a Teflon sheet or parchment paper to cover your design
Press down with iron with medium/firm pressure for 10-15 seconds
Repeat over each section of the design – it’s OK if parts get hit twice
If areas of the design lift after application, re-press for another 10 seconds
Peel carrier sheet away while warm
I usually replace the Teflon sheet and press another 10 seconds to be sure!
