What Is Siser EasyWeed Vinyl?

 

This vinyl is differentiated from other vinyls in the market because it is high quality and easily weeded.

 

What Is Vinyl Weeding?

 

After you have cut a design into a sheet of vinyl, all of the excess backing vinyl must be removed, leaving only your design. This includes removing the cavities from within your design or lettering. A letter ‘O’ for example, must have its center ‘weeded.’

 

Siser have developed a vinyl that makes this process easier. Some vinyls will not cut well, meaning that when it comes time to weed, it is more likely you will pull up your design as well as the excess vinyl.

 

The trick to making this product even easier to weed, is to weed it on a warm surface. You can close your heat press for 2 or 3 seconds and then place the cut vinyl down on the warmed lower platen. The residual heat will soften the adhesive and make the vinyl very easy to weed.

 

If you are using a household iron you can run it over the ironing board for a few seconds and then do the same thing.

 

The EasyWeed starter bundle is a glossy vinyl that is safe to be used on children’s clothing.
