Which Vinyl Should I Use? Determining What Vinyl to use Where


(upbeat music) – Hey guys, it’s Jessica
with expressionsvinyl.com and today I want to talk to you about what type of vinyl to use where. So, when you have a project in mind, I want you to think of
a couple of questions. What am I going to do with it,
will be the biggest factor. How much it’s going to be
handled, if it’s going to be inside or outside, there’s
several questions to go through. So think about what you’re going to be doing with your
project before you decide. We have a few options. So, over here, we have our
removable adhesive vinyl. It has a matte finish and it comes in a ton of colors, but it is going to be a removable adhesive, so it you’re doing something inside your
house or a decoration that’s going inside your house, this one is a great one. If it’s not going to be handled and you want to be able
to peel it off the wall or whatever you’re using it on later, the removable adhesive is a great one. If it’s outside or it’s
going to be handles a lot, like on a cup, and you want
it to last a long time, you want to choose something
with a permanent adhesive. So, we have all sorts of choices in that. All of our glitters have
a permanent adhesive. The plain colors have a gloss finish and then we have metal ones. So, if you don’t want it to come off, like if you’re doing
it on a car or outside, you want to choose permanent adhesive. The next question is, if
you’re using it on fabric or on clothing, you want
to use heat transfer vinyl and that does not have a sticky side, so you can’t, it’s not like a sticker, you have to heat it up
to activate the adhesive. So, those are ones you
want to use on sweatshirts, or on canvas or burlap,
you want to use the heat transfer vinyl or
it’s also known as HTV. So, if you guys want more
tips and tricks like this, subscribe to our video. If you have any questions,
