Need glitter iron on letters for an upcoming project or the kids sports clothes?
While you could cut them yourself using an electronic cutter like the Cricut Explore Air 2, you might not be in a position to get one yet. You can buy iron on glitter letters and numbers pre-cut and ready to press with an iron.
Scroll down below to see your options.
Iron On Glitter Letters & Numbers
Glitter iron on letters and numbers can be applied using:
- an iron (as you’d expect!)
- the Cricut EasyPress
- a heat press
If you have an EasyPress or heat press you’re probably going to have a cutting machine as well, and not likely looking for pre-cut glitter letters. Find out more about these machines:
But for now, I’ll assume you’ll be applying Glitter Iron On numbers and letters with an iron.
Glitter Iron On Letters
Sei 3-inch Gold Classic Glitter Letter Iron On Transfers comes with every letter of the alphabet (plus double ups on vowels) and some symbols (#, &, ?). You’ll need to buy multiple packs if you’re after more than one of the same consonant. Also available in Silver.
Linpeng Iron on Glitter Letter Transfer Sheet Set comes with 55 glitter letters made of iron-on crystal vinyl. The size of the letters is 20mm high. The size of the transfer sheet is 6.5 x 7 inches. There are 5 sheets per pack. Also available in Black.
Glitter Iron On Numbers
Momenta Gold Iron On Numbers is a pack of 32 iron on glitter numbers and symbols. Easy to apply onto all sorts of fabrics (not silk). These numbers are approximately 1.3 inches tall. Also available in Silver.
Wrights Silver Glitter Iron-On Numbers are 8 inches tall. These are large glitter iron on numbers for kids sports uniforms. However, you can use them for anything really. Also available in Pink Glitter Iron On.
How To Apply Pre-Cut Glitter Iron On Letters
These products will all come with their own instructions, so make sure you double check and follow those first. Here is what you can expect to be involved though:
- Set your iron to between cotton and linen on the dial
- Lay your t-shirt onto a hard flat surface
- Iron out any wrinkles
- Lay out your numbers or letters on the garment
- Cover with parchment paper or a thin protective cloth
- Press down over each section of the design for 10 – 15 seconds
- Remove the carrier sheet from the back of the decal
- Re-press the design for another 10 seconds
How To Make Glitter Iron On Letters
The best way to get glitter iron on letters and numbers, in my opinion, is to make your own! How do you make your own glitter iron on transfers? Here’s what you need:
Once you’ve got the equipment you can choose from thousands of free fonts to make your own vinyl numbers and letters.
It does take time and effort to learn how to use cutting machines like the Explore Air 2, but then you’re not going to be limited to simply glitter iron on letters. You’ll be able to cut anything and everything out of a wide range of heat transfer vinyl.
