What vinyl is best for my Cricut
Let’s talk vinyl for a quick second. “What vinyl is best?” is such a common question I hear on the blog or from posts on Facebook. My answer is always Firefly Craft Vinyl. Hands down this vinyl is amazing.
It’s owned and operated by a lovely family here in the USA too (I love that!). But the main reason I buy this brand is it’s the easiest to weed. Hands down! This variety pack I show you here is perfect to have on hand for those quick beachy SVG projects – like this tote bag we are making.
How to Edit the Colors on SVGs
Here is a quick tip on editing the colors on SVGs. Sometimes I don’t want to cut so many colors of the vinyl – they are cute – I’m just lazy. haha. Or maybe I don’t have the colors needed. This is how you can edit the colors.
Grab the items you want to edit, click the color box in the header and pick a new color – it’s that easy.
When using vinyl another question I get ALL the time is, “what temperature should I set my iron or heat press on?” This answer is simple but messy. LOL.
It really depends on the vinyl and the product your applying it to. I like to use my EasyPress from Cricut, I hung up their cheat sheet in my craft space to refer to.
To decide what setting you should use, make sure you know these two things:
- What type of vinyl you are using (most come with instructions)?
- What is the item your adding it to made out of?
These two factors determine your settings. I often ‘wing’ it when both align and then check the vinyl before I remove the carrier sheet. I can apply more heat if needed before I move on.
