How can I add colors to a heat transfer design without adding weight?

Answer

If your customer wants to add colors to the design without adding weight, consider trapping the artwork. This is done by weeding out a layer where a different colored graphic will be and applying the second layer directly to the shirt. The next artwork consideration is the level of detail in the design. Small details and thin lines in the artwork make the weeding process more tedious. Most heat transfer vinyl makers direct their customers to artwork specifically designed for the vinyl cutting process. This artwork usually contains clipart and graphics with minimal cavities to weed out.
