If you’ve been working with Siser® heat transfer vinyl for a while now, you may have ventured further than our most popular HTV, EasyWeed™. While Glitter offers sparkle, Holographic has shimmer that can’t be beat, plus a special translucent HTV that changes hues depending on the color it’s applied on. Sounds pretty cool, right? Unfortunately, we can’t include a sample of Pearl on every. single. possible. background. color in our Color Guide or App. So a lot of the time people don’t realize how unique this special effects vinyl is!




That’s where the Siser Blog comes in 😉 We pressed Holographic Pearl on white, gray, black, and red to show you just how different Pearl can be! Pearl is considered a Holographic HTV because the cutting, weeding, and application are the same.

Press Holographic Pearl for 15 seconds with medium pressure at 320°F. When the vinyl is cool to the touch, peel the carrier. If you peel the carrier while it’s still hot, some HTV may lift with the carrier and not bond to the fabric.

On white, Holographic Pearl appears pink and yellow. On black and gray, Pearl takes on cooler hues of green, blue, and purple. While on red, Holographic Pearl looks almost yellow.

Since Pearl is translucent the color of the garment will influence the HTV.
