There’s so many freebie graphics that I see floating around the internet that would look awesome on shirts, canvas, and totes; but they are simply too detailed to use heat transfer materials. While I’ve seen some crafters tackle intricate designs with lots of heat transfer vinyl layering – you’ll never sell the finished product for enough money to compensate for the amount of time it takes to layer (and layer, and layer) deeply intricate multi color designs.

In the past, I’ve shared a series on sublimation. Sublimation is a great alternative to layering heat transfer materials in intricate designs. However, I know sublimation supplies are a big investment.

Another alternative to heat transfer materials with intricate details is to use an inkjet transfer paper like Jetpro SS. Here’s a quick tutorial which uses these floral letters.

Jetpro SS Inkjet Heat Transfer Paper Tutorial

  1. Design and print your mirrored design onto the Jetpro SS Inkjet Heat Transfer Paper. Using Silhouette Studio, add registration marks. Tutorial: Inkjet Transfer Paper & Print and Cut with Silhouette Cameo - by cuttingforbusiness.com
  2. Set Silhouette Studio to “Cut Edge” and cut around the outside of the design. (You can do the same if you are using Cricut Design Space.) This ensures that the blank part of the transfer paper does not transfer to the shirt. Tutorial: Inkjet Transfer Paper & Print and Cut with Silhouette Cameo - by cuttingforbusiness.com
  3. Place your design onto the apparel. Heat resistant tape or painters tape works well to keep the design in place. Tutorial: Inkjet Transfer Paper & Print and Cut with Silhouette Cameo - by cuttingforbusiness.com
  4. Press your design. I pressed at 380 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 seconds. After pressing, immediately peel off the paper. Tutorial: Inkjet Transfer Paper & Print and Cut with Silhouette Cameo - by cuttingforbusiness.com
  5. That’s it! Way faster than layering heat transfer vinyl, cheaper than investing in sublimation, and fun to do! Tutorial: Inkjet Transfer Paper & Print and Cut with Silhouette Cameo - by cuttingforbusiness.com
