No Light? No Problem. ReflectAll has your athletic apparel covered.
Early morning jogs and evening dashes require some special running gear. Whether you avoid the midday exercise because of high noon heat or find that the beginning and end of the day are the only times you can hit the pavement, one thing is always a priority: safety. In the dark, most drivers won’t see runners until they’ve practically passed them on the road. By the time the driver realizes they should allow more space for the runner they’re a memory in the rear view mirror. Don’t go unnoticed. Make sure motorists see you while you work out by customizing your athletic apparel with ReflectAll.
ReflectAll is thin enough to layer without weighing down your garment. For this design I layered white ReflectAll over black EasyWeed™ Stretch.
I made the Siser Running Club design in Silhouette Studio and then created two separate boards to split between my ReflectAll pieces and my EasyWeed Stretch pieces. Always mirror your image before sending the design to the cutting machine.
Before cutting ReflectAll remove the plastic lining on the face of the material. Then place the shiny side of the material face down on the cutting mat. Load the mat into the cutter and send the design to the Silhouette Cameo. EasyWeed Stretch and all other cuttable Siser materials always go carrier side face down into the cutting machine.
When the Silhouette Cameo is finished cutting I can weed away the excess vinyl from the design. Use a Siser Weeder to remove small cavities and lift the corner of the extra material to peel it away from the carrier sheet.
When I have my vinyl completely weeded I can heat apply the design.
The heat press is set to 305°F with a medium pressure at 5. Always pre press your garment for a few seconds to remove any wrinkles and moisture in the fabric.
I set up my EasyWeed Stretch pieces, covered them with a heat transfer cover sheet, then pressed for 5 seconds to tack the material down. As soon as it’s done pressing I can peel the carrier sheet hot. Then I layered the ReflectAll over the EasyWeed Stretch, topped it with a heat transfer cover sheet, and pressed for 5 seconds. ReflectAll is a warm peel so I let the carrier sit for a few seconds before peeling. To finish it all I covered the design with a heat transfer cover sheet again and pressed for 5 final seconds.
ReflectAll paired with this bright pink moisture wicking shirt creates the perfect piece of athletic apparel that will stand out and keep you safe during low light runs.
