Fun with FeatherLight and Summer Fashions

Keep it light and breezy this summer with lightweight, wearable, and high-performance heat transfer vinyls from USCutter.

5 WAYS LESS CAN BE MORE ON ALL YOUR SUMMER FASHIONS:

1.) Thin Vinyl Looks Better on Thin Fashion Fabrics:

New FeatherLight by Siser, exclusive to uscutter.com, is only 1.6 mils thick! Compare to EasyWeed at 6 mils, FeatherLight is almost 75% thinner(!) and sticks to Lycra/Spandex stretch fitnesswear!

FeatherLight designs are lighweight and feel great!

2.) Thin Feels Good on the Skin:

FeatherLight is very similar to Stretch in appearance, and works on materials besides cotton and polyester like thin stretchy fashion fabrics. It is mostly matte with a muted sheen like EasyWeed but its feel is more rubbery vs. papery. The biggest difference you’ll feel is on the inside of the shirt. Lightweight decals made from FeatherLight just feel more wearable and natural on the skin.

3.) Save Money on Materials with Spare Designs:

Use of thin details and negative space not only looks really sharp, it’s economical. The hat pictured here, crafted with thin FeatherLight vinyl, has a spartan look and feel to it, but will invite attention as people mentally fill in the rest of the image.

Fun Alternate Uses for Oracal Frosted and Etched Glass Window Films

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, who’s the most elegant & functional of them all?

Oracal 8510 (look of etched glass) and 8810 (frosted glass) are privacy films often found in corporate offices or restaurants to provide light-blocking and filtering opacity on glass surfaces as well as elegant understated cut vinyl graphics and lettering.

Chic and private glass coverings provide an elegant secluded ambiance.

And while that might be the most common use for these films, it really is just the tip of the iceberg.

There are a host of other decorating and functional possibilities: imagine soft mint-green light slanting in through your kitchen skylight like stained glass, for example. Vinyl “Etched Glass” effects are temporary and removable, which is not the case with real glass-etching techniques that require permanent corrosive creams. Your vinyl installation can be as temporary or permanent as you need it to be.

Check out this blog from the Silhouette School which explains how to cut designs and apply the material, as well as shows amazing uses for it from temporary parental warnings to “BRUSH YOUR TEETH” on the bathroom mirror, to “Glitter” designs on phone cases and bracelets, which are all the rage in the garment heat-transfer-vinyl marketplace.
