This heat transfer vinyl is SPECTACULAR! I could use it on everything! What is it? It’s Deco Film Paint Fx and it is truly gorgeous. Now, don’t get me wrong – I love GlitterFlex II and GlitterFlex Ultra, because I LOVE sparkle. My sister, on the other hand, is not one for the flashy look of rhinestones or glitter. But when she asked me to make some T-shirts for her new business, I wanted to make the logo stand out somehow and Deco Film Paint Fx filled the need with it’s subtle and elegant appearance!

I selected a font and created the poodle image from a photo of our dog, Simon. For the front of the T-shirts I created a 2″ x 4″ left breast logo and for the hoodie I created a 6″ x 9″ version of the logo to go in the center.
This is a series of photos so that you can see the car-like shine of this vinyl. What you can’t see is how soft and flexible this vinyl is – you can’t even tell it has been ironed on when you’re wearing it!
I cut the logo using my Maxx Air 24″ and applied the vinyl with my 15″ heat press using the settings above. After waiting for it to cool, I peeled off the carrier sheet and instantly fell in love with this vinyl.
And here is the small logo – don’t you love how vinyl can be cut to the most intricate designs?
Without using the flash, the color has more contrast and looks much bolder!
