Cutting heat transfer papers with a Silhouette Cameo can be an easy and affordable way to create custom designs for a variety of apparel. Heat transfer papers are available in a range of colors and finishes, making it easy to find the perfect paper for your project.
Before you get started, make sure you have the right tools for the job. You’ll need a cutting mat, heat transfer paper, weeding tools, and a Silhouette Cameo machine. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure your cutting mat is smooth and free of debris before beginning.
Once you have all of your supplies ready to go, it’s time to start cutting! Begin by setting up your design in the Silhouette Studio software.
You can use any of the pre-loaded designs or upload your own custom design. When you’re finished designing, make sure that all of your lines are connected properly so that they will be cut correctly.
Next, load your heat transfer paper onto the cutting mat with the glossy side facing down. Secure it in place with masking tape if needed. Then load the cutting mat onto the Silhouette Cameo machine and select “Heat Transfer Paper” from the material type menu.
Now you’re ready to cut! Set up your desired settings for speed and pressure and press “Send” on the software interface. The machine will begin cutting out your design.
Once it’s done:
When the machine has finished cutting out your design, carefully remove it from the cutting mat. Use weeding tools to remove any excess material that was not cut out by the machine. Finally, place your design onto whatever fabric or garment item you would like it on and press down firmly with an iron or heat press.
