Vinyl usage remains a hugely popular decoration method, whether print businesses are starting out or well established, due its cost effectiveness, versatility and ease of use. Stocking up on essential HTV materials is a great way of staying one step ahead to start the new calendar year.
One of the great things about HTV is that there are so many different varieties of colours and finishes - glossy, matte, flock and Special Effects HTV to name just a few. No matter what project you've got, there is a vinyl that's perfect for it, working on cotton, polyester, blends, and denim.
The possibilities then extend beyond the normal wearable fabrics and into the home or office. Some surprising surfaces that are receptive for HTV include canvas, cork and non-wearable fabrics. For example, why not try on dish towels, placemats, blankets, and even sports balls? The list of possiblities is longer than you think!
Take a look below at some of the possible uses for HTV.
