Blade Depth: 2
For more details about our recommend cut settings please see the link below.
Q: Will the color change vinyl still turn color if under epoxy?
A: Yes, it will still change color provided that enough heat can get though the epoxy.
Q: Is the color changing vinyl dishwasher safe?
A: Yes it is dishwasher safe so long as the cup itself is dishwasher safe, but I would still recommend hand washing just for longevity.
Q: Does the hot change in sun and warmth of your hand?does it come in metallic.
Love your videos??
A: Generally this requires a higher heat to change (warm water, tea, or coffee will do), this vinyl changes color due to heat, not UV directly. We do not currently have a metallic variant of this vinyl but we do have a UV color changing version.
Q: Will the artic blue cold* show up(turn visibly blue) against your black reflective vinyl?
A: Being that this vinyl is clear when not color changing, the black background would effect the shade of blue and potentially not make it has visible as it would be on a white background.
Q: Do I have to let it cure on a Starbuck's cold cup? Do I have to seal it on a Starbucks cold cup?
A: We advise letting the vinyl cure for 24 hours before use. We used such a strong adhesive on the temperature color-changing vinyl, you won't need to apply anything over them. If you do have tiny details in your design that you're concerned about lifting, you can certainly add our ColorSpark Vinyl Shield over the top to ensure your vinyl stays beautiful and secure.
Q: how many Starbucks cups can you get out of one roll? 16 oz. and 20 oz
A: We only offer templates for the 24 oz Starbucks cups, which depending on how you align your cuts would allow you to get about 3 from this roll.
Q: Applied ColorSpark Temperature Color-Changing Adhesive Vinyl to my Starbucks plastic tumbler but the thin lines of the decal are already coming off, do I need to use something else with this? Will it not work since the cup sweats?
A: Generally thin decals may lift on their own with use anyway, there's less adhesive grabbing to the surface. One thing to try, esp on a heavily handled cup, would be to try drying the surface fully, for likely 24 hours even just to be sure there's zero moisture, then try laying our Vinyl Shield over the top to protect those thin cuts. Make sure to cut the shield larger than your decal so it overlaps, you want it to have a really good seal all the way around to "shield" the decal.
Q: Can you really put this in dishwasher and/or microwave?
A: Dishwasher yes, with Vinyl Shield preferably. Microwave, never. No vinyl should ever go in the microwave.
Q: Hey, I'm curious about your colour changing vinyl.. I was thinking about putting it on the side of a motorcycle engine, over the clutch. What temps would this vinyl work in? Do you have any high temp heat changing vinyl?
A: We do not have high temp vinyl for extreme conditions such as the side of an engine, but it would work great on a less intense area of the bike for sure, just like a regular car decal.
Q: Is the Clear on the Clear to Black Cold Color Changing Vinyl, totally clear or is more like etched look? I would be putting on clear glass, will it show up if it isn't cold? I can't find any pictures of it on something to see how clear it is.
A: Ever so slightly. Here's a video on the Arctic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJHYCbnjiZw&t=2107s
Q: Will the color change back to the original when the temperature changes? Or the color permanently change.
A: The color change is only temporary and it will change back to its original color when it returns to room temperature.
Can I use this on t shirt
A: No this cannot be used on a shirt, you're going to be looking for HTV if you're using vinyl on a shirt.
Q: hi how much heat does it need in celsius
A: This is adhesive vinyl, not HTV so heat is not required for application.
Q: Hi! What are the cut specs for the Color Changing C Adhesive vinyl? I have a Graphtec,
A: Hi there! We use a 45 degree blade, Speed 30 and Force 15-16.
If you have an intricate design, slowing down your does is helpful.
Q: Does this work on a Cricut machine? I’ve tried numerous times to weed and it simply isn’t working. Very difficult to lift vinyl around the letters. Everything lifts. Not satisfied at all
A: Please make sure you are using our recommended cut settings that can be found at the link below. If you need further assistance please reach out to our support department via the info in the second link below.
Q: Can you add Exopy and glitter to the color changing vinyl?
A: We do not work with epoxy, so we cannot verify if the color will still change, especially if you are applying this to a double walled tumbler or if the epoxy has insulative properties that could prevent the transfer of temperature.
Q: Hi is there a sample pack for the ColorSpark Temperature Color-Changing Adhesive Vinyl?
A: Unfortunately we do not have a sample pack for color-changing adhesive vinyl at this time.
Q: I am trying to make a tumbler with color changing vinyl for my daughter attending University of Michigan. Is the Lemon Yellow color too neon yellow? Any advice? The colors are blue and yellow. Thanks.
A: The lemon drop might be a little bit too bright for that application, but it could go with a brighter blue.

Q: My color changing dragonfruit vinyl quit changing colors and I have an order for a cup with this vinyl. Has this happened before do you know why this might have happened?
A: Extreme temps can cause this. Going through the dishwasher, or being frozen will effect it.
Q: Can this be used over the color-spark reflective adhesive vinyls?
A: It sure can! Layering multiple permanent vinyl's are ok!
Q: Do you sell assortment packs of heat changing adhesive vinyl?
A: Sheets and packs aren't available at this time, but be sure to check back in the future. Currently we sell by the 5 foot roll.
Q: Can this be cut on a Cricut 3?
A: A Cricut Maker 3 will cut everything a Cricut Maker can cut, and more! You can still cut using a mat for any other materials you’d like, including regular vinyl, iron on, cardstock, felt, leather, chipboard, basswood, fabric, and more!
Q: Does the color changing feature work when applied to double insulated tumblers? Will I still get the full color changing effect?
A: The ColorSpark Temperature Color Changing Adhesive Vinyl changes color when it is either warmed or cooled, depending on which one you're using. If the double walled tumbler does not allow heat or cold to seep through at all, the vinyl will still change color due to atmospheric temperatures. If it is cold or hot out, you'll see the color change even on the roll for those specific vinyls.
Q: Do the color changing vinyl come in sheets ?
A: They're 12 inch by 5 foot rolls.
Q: What size are the rolls
A: These are sold as 5-foot continuous rolls. They are each 3.5 mm thick and 12” inches wide!
Q: Is the color changing vinyl permanent
A: When it comes to adhesive vinyl, permanent or decal/temporary refers to the strength of the adhesive.
Yes, this ColorSpark Temperature Color Changing Adhesive Vinyl is permanent. We've used a super strong adhesive on these. While the adhesive is strong enough to be top rack dishwasher safe, due to the temperature color-changing properties, we recommend either handwash or be sure to not use a sterilize setting on your dishwasher.
Q: Hi. Do you have color changing black to white when warm?
A: Sorry, none of our Temperature Color Changing Adhesive vinyl changes to white.
In the little thumbnails, you can see the color it changes to is shown on the bottom half of the image. If there is a tiny hand holding onto the vinyl shown in the image, that means the vinyl starts off clear then changes to a color.
