How Do I Seal My Cricut Vinyl?

If you are a fan of crafts, then you know that Cricut Vinyl is one of the most popular vinyl materials for decorating a variety of projects. This versatile material can be used to create custom stickers, labels, signs, and much more.

But once you have created your masterpiece, how do you seal in the design? Sealing your vinyl is a simple process that will ensure your design lasts for years to come.

Choose the Right Sealer

The key to sealing Cricut Vinyl is to use a sealer that is specifically made for vinyl. It’s important to choose a sealer that won’t damage the material or cause discoloration over time. A good option is Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Sealer which provides an invisible protective finish and won’t yellow with age.

Prepare Your Surface

Once you have chosen the right sealer, it’s important to make sure your surface is clean and free from dust or dirt particles before applying the sealer. Use a damp cloth to wipe down the surface and let it dry completely before continuing.

Apply The Sealer

Once your surface is prepared, it’s time to apply the sealer. You can either use a foam brush or a spray bottle depending on your preference.

Apply an even coat of sealer to the vinyl in long strokes. Make sure not to saturate the material with too much sealer as this can cause bubbling or warping of the vinyl.

Allow Time To Dry

Once you have applied an even coat of sealer, allow it time to dry completely before touching it or using it in any way. Depending on how thickly you applied the sealer, this could take anywhere from 1-4 hours.

Sealing Cricut Vinyl is an easy process that will help keep your designs looking like new for years to come. All you need is some Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Sealer and some patience while it dries!
