Custom Vinyl and Glitter Vinyl Shirts Indianapolis

Custom (Glitter) Vinyl

What is it: A type of vinyl with and adhesive backing that can be cut, weeded, and applied to a variety of fabrics.

Equipment: We have two Roland GX-24 vinyl cutters that cut vinyl, and a Stahl's heated weeding table to weed (the active of removing access material not part of the actual design) the vinyl in mirred form.  The vinyl is then heat pressed onto the garment and the transfer paper is then removed.  Each layer of vinyl (if using multiple colors) is applied seperately.

 Artwork: We require vector art for creating vinyl designs.
-File types: Corel Draw (.cdr), Adobe Illustrator (.ai), .svg, .eps, and in some cases, .pdf files.  Please DO NOT use Photoshop and save it as an EPS is not the same as a vector art .eps file made with vector art software.
If you don't have professional graphic design software, you can use our online designer, or have us create something for you.  We can also convert rastor images to vector art for $30 each.

Print Locations and Use: We can attach vinyl to almost any area of a garment.  Vinyl is generally used for creating one or two color, one-off decoration, like small and simple company logos, name and/or numbers on sports jerseys, and prototypes for larger screen printed orders.

Printable Fabrics: A variety of fabrics will work for vinyl, including, but not limited to: 100% cotton, 50/50 cotton/polyester blend, tri blends, 100% polyester, mesh, spandex, and vinyl.  For vinyl to be securely attached to a garment, a hot heat press is required.  The fabics being decorated bust be able to withstand the high temperature and pressure of a heat press.  Never washed or worn apparel is recommended.  If previously worn apparel is to be decorated, it is recommended the garment is washed five times in water only prior to remove any detergents from the fabric.  Chemicals/detergents remaining in the garment could burn when heat pressed.

Vinyl Colors: While a wide variety of vinyl exists in different colors for use on different fabrics, we stock vinyls meant for cotton, polyester, and cotton/polyester blends: Athletic Gold, Black, Cardinal, Grey, Fluorescent Pink, Flourscent Green, Gold, Kelly Green,  Lemon, Navy, Orange, Red, Royal, Silver, Vegas Gold, and White.  In glitter vinyl, we stock: Black, Blush Gold, Green, Lavender, Navy, Purple, Red, Royal Silver, and White.  Vinyl in many different colors for use on these and other fabrics can be ordered on request.

Curing: The adhesive backing on the vinyl used to bond it to a garment is very high quality.  When attached with a quality heat press for the proper time and temperature (like the ones we have), rhinestones can last for years.

Garment Care: Once you have your garment, proper care is necessary to achieve a normal garment and print life. For all garments, we recommend cold-water washing inside out and hang drying. You may tumble dry on fluff (no heat). Never iron over the decoration. Following these steps will help you acheive the maximum amount of life for your garment. Remember, no garment or print is designed to last forever!
