Q: Does the HTV Anything go on the top or the bottom of the regular HTV?
A: HTV Anything will always be your bottom or base layer. Think of HTV Anything as your T-shirt that your are pressing your heat transfer vinyl too. You are just turning your HTV into a dishwasher safe sticker or decal. You also press to the SHINY side.
Here is a heat pressing example:
You are making a custom glitter name to go on a tumbler with HTV Anything, Hot Pink Glitter HTV, and White Glitter HTV.
Step 1: Press the White Glitter HTV to the HTV Anything material at 315 Degrees for 3-4 Seconds.
Step 2: Press the Hot Pink Glitter HTV to the White Glitter HTV at 315 Degrees for 8-10 Seconds.
Step 3: You decal is now completed. When ready to apply you will just remove the back carrier sheet of the HTV Anything Material to expose the Adhesive and apply to your smooth flat surface.
Q: What cut setting should you use when cutting htv anything on a cricut maker? Also is it better to cut the same image on the htv anything or just the outline?
A: For the HTV Anything on the Cricut Maker I use these custom settings in Design Space:
Cut Pressure: 240
Multi Cut: Off
Blade: Fine Point Blade
When cutting the HTV Anything you want to create a offset or Contour of the Heat Transfer Vinyl Design to make it easier to line up correctly. I normally do about a .06" Offset with the HTV Anything
Q: What is HTV Anything used for?
A: HTV Anything is a unique material that The Rhinestone World manufactures to turn regular heat transfer vinyls into a dishwasher safe sticker/decal. So you can use a product like a beautiful Siser Glitter HTV that you would normally use for t-shirts and heat press it to the HTV Anything material to make a custom decal. You can also layer the Glitter HTV as much as you would like to have multiple colors. The HTV Anything material has a special adhesive on the back to then apply it to any smooth flat surface you would like for your customers. Examples are Tumblers, Cups, Cell Phones, TV's, Walls, Windows, and much more.
Q: What are the best cut settings for HTV anything on a Silhouette Cameo 4?
A: Our best results are:
Remember to always do test cuts as the life of your blade can impact your cuts.
Q: What if you are using for a tumbler and you don't have a mug press?
A: That is the amazing part about the HTV Anything Material. Your tumbler or product is never exposed to any heat. You are heat pressing the t-shirt HTV directly to the HTV Anything material to make a adhesive decal. You can then apply that decal to any smooth flat surface like a tumbler or mug for your finished product.
Q: Do I have to seal the HTV Anything Material to make it dishwasher safe?
A: No, you do not have to seal it with anything. The adhesive we use on the back of the HTV Anything is strong enough to hold through the dishwashing cycle. Make sure the tumbler or cup is also dishwasher safe as well.
Q: Can you place Rhinestones directly to HTV anything?
A: Great question! No, you cannot press rhinestones directly to HTV Anything. Instead, you can press rhinestones directly to our Bling Anything decal material.
Q: Can this be used to glitter and rhinestone the maars skinny acrylic cups also?
A: Great question! ColorSpark HTV Anything is the product we are using to decorate the Maars skinny acrylic cups. Our ColorSpark HTV Anything can turn htv into a dishwasher safe decal. If using rhinestones, please be sure to have htv as your bottom layer and do not try to press rhinestones directly to HTV Anything.
Q: Can you cut HTV with scissors like the Bling Anything? Or do you have to size and cut it with the Cricut?
A: You can cut it with any craft cutter or scissors.
Q: HI! We have a few rolls of HTV anything and some have a thin layer we have to peel off and one roll doesn't have that layer. Does that sound right? Is there a chance this roll is mislabeled? They were purchased by myself or Michelle Blakeslee. Thanks!
A: Hi there! The HTV Anything had started off with that thin layer, but we have since had it manufactured without the extra layer. We have been adding labels with instructions to remove the cover sheet on the rolls that had the cover sheet.
Q: HI, HTV anything is sold out, will substituting with HTV Bling anything work just as well or do you recommend/suggest I wait for the HTV anything to come back in stock? I want to purchase what will work best for cups that I plan to sell with and without rhinestones. Thank you for your help!
A: For cups, Bling Anything will work great. If you want to use ONLY rhinestones on a design, Bling Anything is the material needed. HTV Anything is a bit less expensive because it is designed to not have the layer that will hold the rhinestones by themselves.
Q: just like to know how to use this and when do i use it?
A: Our Award Winning ColorSpark HTV Anything turns HTV (heat transfer vinyl) into a decal.
To use this, we recommend using a Teflon sheet rather than parchment paper to protect the decal material as well as your heatpress or Easypress. You will sandwich the HTV Anything inside a sheet of teflon. The order goes: teflon on bottom, HTV Anything material, htv, then teflon sheet on top to fully protect your decal material. You treat the HTV Anything as you would if you were pressing htv to a shirt. Press to the SHINY side and align your htv. Trim the carrier sheet of your htv close to your designs so you do not have any carrier sheet touching the edges of your HTV Anything. Cover with Teflon and press for about 8 seconds. Open your Teflon "sandwhich" and peel the carrier sheet from your htv. You can break the typical pressing rules by layering glitter htv on top of glitter htv and even rhinestones on top of glitter htv when making a decal with our HTV Anything. After you have pressed all layers, trim the HTV Anything CLOSE to the htv but do not cut right to the edge of your htv. Peel the papery backing and apply your new decal to a hard, nonporous surface. Your decal is dishwasher safe and even car wash/weather safe. Please note, HTV is not rated for extended outdoor use, so htv decals will fade in the sun over time.
Q: How long does the HTV Anything need to cure before putting product in the dishwasher?
A: We have applied decals made with our HTV Anything and tested them in the dishwasher same day. This is another advantage to using HTV and HTV Anything over adhesive/decal vinyl on items that will be going in the dishwasher.
Q: When will this be available again?
A: We have an order en route, but shipping sometimes gets delayed, which prolongs the timing of when we will have it in. Please keep checking back, as it could sell out again, once we've restocked.
Q: When will this be back in stock?
A: We have an order en route and hope it will arrive soon. Unfortunately, shipping delays have caused a slight delay and we cannot guarantee the date it will be in stock at the warehouse. It's very popular and could sell out quickly, so please keep checking back to be sure you are able to order it when it is restocked.
Q: Can this be used with Iron on vinyl too?
A: Our Award Winning HTV Anything turns HTV (heat transfer vinyl) into a dishwasher safe decal. We recommend using a heatpress or Easypress to apply the htv (Iron on vinyl) to the HTV Anything. Using a teflon sheet, place your HTV Anything shiny side up on the teflon. Place your htv adhesive side down on top of the HTV Anything, making sure your carrier sheet is not near any of the edges of your HTV Anything. (The carrier sheet is sticky enough to pull up the edges of the HTV Anything when you remove the carrier.) Cover with the rest of your Teflon sheet and press. If you want to layer multiple colors of HTV for your decal, please remember to remove the carrier sheet in-between layers. ;)
Q: Can this be used to hotfix the maars skinny tumbler or the bling anything only should be used.
A: HTV Anything and Bling Anything both can be used to decorate tumblers. The difference between the two materials is that when using ONLY Hotfix rhinestones in a design, you must use Bling Anything. Rhinestones cannot be pressed directly to HTV Anything.
Q: Is this little rhinestones you can cut an apply as HTV?
A: HTV Anything is our decal material that turns heat transfer vinyl into a dishwasher safe decal. The only time you would use Rhinestones with this product is if you are layering hotfix rhinestones on top of your htv to create a decal. This material does not go on apparel. Our Bling Anything sheets are a different product which have 18,000 ss06 machine cut rhinestones imbedded in an adhesive backed material, which can be cut and applied to hard, non-porous surfaces. That product does not require a heat press and also is not used for apparel.
Q: Would I need the Vinyl Shield over the HTV Anything/HTV layer or would that be overkill?
A: You do not need Vinyl Shield over our HTV Anything ot our Bling Anything materials.
Q: Can I used have anything to make decals with foil?
A: Unfortunately, no. Foil will stick to the entire surface of HTV Anything.
