      Hi John! Metallic is actually not recommended for layering. However, you can still achieve a layered effect with the inset or knock out method. As for pressing time and temperature- you can split the difference between the two temperatures and go with 310°F. Press the other HTV first for 2-3 seconds to tack it down, peel the carrier, place the Metallic HTV, press for 15 seconds, and peel cold.

        Tatiana, Metallic HTV is not recommended for direct layering of other HTV’s. However, you can still achieve a layered look by editing your artwork (with the inset or knock out method) so that each layer directly bonds with the fabric and not the other HTV.

    Hi!

    Maybe, I’m missing something. Which side down do I cut this? Metallic side down? Do I need to have carrier pieces for this?

    Thanks in advance!

      Shiny side of the material goes down… reverse your design and cut on the dull side.

    What would be the difference between the metallic and foil. Is there a benefit to one or the other? I’m making dri fit softball jerseys

      Hi Venus! EasyWeed® Foil is softer to the touch and thinner than Metallic. For dri fit softball jerseys I would recommend the EasyWeed® Foil or EasyWeed® Adhesive paired with screen print foil (AKA Magic Foil, Deco Foil, etc) for best results.
