If you are new to Heat Transfer Vinyl and are looking to learn, Siser’s EasyWeed is the perfect choice for you. EasyWeed HTV is easy to pick up and very accessible, even for those who do not own a heat press. You can use your iron at home to press on your designs! There are tons of colours to choose from, which means you can create whatever you put your mind to!

This post will teach you the compatible materials for EasyWeed, the correct settings for your cutting machine, as well as the step-by-step process of transferring your design.


On top of being iron-friendly, EasyWeed is also:

  • Laser Friendly
  • Layerable
  • CPSIA Certified

Here is a list of materials that EasyWeed can be applied to:

  • 100% Cotton
  • 100% Polyester
  • Poly/Cotton Blends
  • Leather

*Before beginning, you will also want to ensure your cutter is set to the proper settings in order for your design to cut properly. Refer to this document to check for your specific cutting machine. A quick test cut will help you confirm whether or not your cutter needs any adjustments. 


Feel free to view our video instructional to follow along with the instructions below!

Home Iron Tutorial

  1. Firstly, ensure your iron is set between the cotton and linen function. Refer to the list outlining compatible materials before attempting to transfer your design.

  2. You will then want to cover your design with Kraft paper, or a non-stick cover sheet.

  3. Placing your covered design on a hard surface (your ironing board is not recommended), you will need to press down with medium, firm pressure for at least 10-15 seconds.

  4. If you notice any areas of the cover sheet lifting after application, you can cover your design and press down again for another 5-10 seconds.

  5. Finally, you can now peel the carrier off of your garment, hot or cold!

Heat Press Tutorial

  1. To start off with the heat press version of the tutorial, you will need to cut your design in reverse. After cutting, you will need to weed any of the excess material.
  1. Make sure your garment or material you are heat transferring to is preheated for at least 2-3 seconds.

  2. Next, apply your design at 305°F / 150°C. If you are an EasyPress user, be sure to add another 30°.

  3. Press down with medium pressure for at least 10-15 seconds.

  4. Finally, you should be able to peel the carrier off the garment hot or cold!

Laundering Instructions

Be sure to follow these laundering instructions so that your design can set properly without fading or tears. 

  1. Wait at least 24 hours before giving your garment its first wash.

  2. Machine wash with warm water using mild detergent.

  3. Do not bleach, dry clean, or use liquid fabric softener.

  4. Dry using the normal dryer setting.


By following these instructions, you will be a Heat Transfer Vinyl pro in no time! Always remember to do test cuts when reconfiguring your cutting machine, and to follow the laundering instructions so that your design will be long lasting.
