Glitter Vinyl Issues

edited December 2016 in Tips and Tricks
Hello! I'm sure this has been discussed before, so please feel free to direct me! I'm new to the vinyl world and have been working with my Silhouette Cameo and all has been going smoothly. I recently picked up some cricut glitter vinyl and it has been a mess. I can't for the life of me get it to stick to the transfer tape. I have changed my cut pressure, used the clear transfer tape that comes with the glitter vinyl and used transfer paper that came with my Cameo and the glitter vinyl either doesn't stick AT ALL or comes off-with some of the white paper backing attacked. I'm wasting so much vinyl! Any tips?

    @DTJB ; I just recently used some of that vinyl and I found that I had to use the transfer tape that was supplied with the vinyl and I had to brayer it hard and well before it would stick to the transfer tape supplied with the vinyl.

    I've never got cricut vinyl to stick either. I guess the only thing you can do is to rub over it hard and fast. I just threw mine away and never tried again...oracal is so much easier.

    Thank you for responding! It seems like I cant press hard enough or I press too hard! There is no in between. So frustrating.
