The more layers involved, the harder it is to match up each to achieve the end result. Heat transfer vinyl cannot be used for full-color pictures or anything with gradients. There are other applications for those options. Heat transfer vinyl can be used to create special effects with its glitter, flocked, holographic, glow-in-the-dark, and 3D puff options. The layering of these types of vinyl is dependent on the type of vinyl used. Heat transfer vinyl is available anywhere from small sheets, to large “master” rolls, that can be up to 60″ x 50 yards. Typical sizes are 15″ and 19″ wide rolls in 1 yard, 5 yard, 10 yard, 25 yard, and 50-yard lengths.
