Happy Crafters recently launched a new heat transfer vinyl product called Craft Perfect. They sent me a few samples so that I could share my opinions with you.

What is Happy Crafter’s Craft Perfect?

It is a heat transfer material that adheres to cotton, polyester, blends, spandex, and performance wear (but not nylon!). It has a matte finish and is priced at as low as $2 per 12″ by 12″ sheet if you order in bulk! Single sheets run $3 each.

What Colors are Available for Craft Perfect?

There’s a wide array of colors available: Lilac, marine blue, mint, neon purple, pineapple, pink champagne, razzmatazz, seafoam, silver plate, tomato, coral reef, gold crown, grassy field, henna, blueberry pie, jet black, and cloud white.

My Sample Pack

My sample pack of Craft Perfect included cloud white, pink champagne, neon purple, mint, and gold crown.

Cutting Craft Perfect

Like many heat transfer materials, Happy Crafter’s Craft Perfect comes with a built in carrier sheet. This means that you will mirror your image and cut it shiny side down. I used the preset for heat transfer vinyl (smooth) with my Silhouette Cameo 3. Weeding the material was also easy:

Applying Craft Perfect

There were no instruction sheets included in my sample and no heat press times listed on Happy Crafters – so I pressed with medium pressure at 300 degrees. The application was perfect! Craft Perfect can also be applied with an iron.

Overall Thoughts on Craft Perfect by Happy Crafters

I thought the material was easy to work with and was very thin – which I liked! Also, I noticed there was quite a bit of stretch to the material!

I’d recommend Craft Perfect and hope to see the line expand to other colors in the future! Shop for Craft Perfect at Happy Crafters at this link.

Can you really use a small font like on the leather bracelets? Thanks

Hello! The trick to cutting small fonts is to make sure your blade is sharp and your cut settings are set appropriately. You can cut fonts small in any vinyl.

They do have very detailed instructions on their website under the product. :-)

Would love to know how well this does when washed. Also how many washes do they consider their HTV good for?! Also is this CPSIA - would use on infant's shirts. Thank you for your review.

You'd have to ask Happy Crafters regarding both issues.
