Load your heat transfer into your Silhouette. Heat transfer is lined, so if your piece is large enough, there is no need to use your mat. But, if you have a smaller piece, place it on your cutting mat and load.

Before you send your design to your Silhouette, make sure to MIRROR IT. Don’t forget or all of your text will be backwards. The easiest way to do this is right-click your design and select “Flip Horizontally”.

Choose “Heat Transfer” in the Material drop-down in the Send panel and manually adjust your blade to the recommended settings shown, unless you use AutoBalde. Send your design to your Silhouette.

Once your design is cut, unload it. Weed your design. That is, peel off the extra vinyl and leave your mirrored design on the clear backing.

After the design is weeded, place it on your desired surface. Use an iron (or a heat press) to adhere the vinyl. We recommend using a piece of light-weight fabric between the iron and the vinyl.

That’s it! If you placed it on something you are going to wear, make sure to turn the garment inside out when you machine wash it.
