This is by far the best transfer medium I have used. Let me back up and start with I have been doing vinyl transfers for about a year and a half. Someone recommended I try the dollar tree clear shelf paper, called magic cover. Between that and regular old clear contact paper I thought I was a pro. Until one day I got to a spot on the roll and it wouldn't stick. At all. Not even a little bit. Panicked I grabbed the contact paper and it stuck, but wouldn't release my vinyl. It was stuck on there for good. So I cut it out again. And again and kept having the same issues with one not lifting, or lifting just enough but once put on my surface, I pretty much had to individually convince each tiny piece to go down. I might as well done it by hand. I wasted SO MUCH VINYL! I finally threw out the contact paper. I stopped doing vinyl for a bit because it was so stressful that my fun hobby became no fun.
So Christmas just came up, and my friend needed a bunch of small gifts. She asked me if I could make a few monograms for her. No problem! Let me just cut these out. Then I had to face the fact that my magic over wasn't sticking. Again. At all. So I read some reviews, ok I read a lot of reviews, and I figured Amazon has a great return policy right? 2 days later I got the paper transfer tape. I wasn't really sure I made the right choice. I mean it wasn't clear. It was see through enough. guess. I cut out a bunch of monograms. I made a couple extras and unrolled my new transfer paper. I started to smile, could this be easier? Then I cut out a few places and placed it on my vinyl and guess what? It stuck. I hadn't even burnished it, and it was stuck! I refused to give in, yet. I had to put this vinyl on a cup, just to see. And it stuck, and it peeled off so easily! You know how they say the right tools make a difference? This is the right tool for vinyl. This was by far the best product I had used so far.
I have waited a few weeks, and many applications before I gave this product a review. I even tried out another "popular brand" because I was so hung up on the clear without spending more. I can honestly say this made me love doing vinyl again. A few dozen ornaments and cups later, this is what made the biggest difference for me. I use mostly oracal 651, but have also tried it with both cricut and silhouette vinyl with the same great results. I will be ordering the clear next time in addition to another roll of the paper tape. And Angel Crafts, super nice seller. They actually reached out and email you to ask how you like the product. I love that. Thank you!
