- Yes, please ensure to mirror or flip the image before cutting. When using a cutter, have the glossy side face up on the mat using the vinyl cut settings. Once desired image is cut and weeded, lint roll the pre-washed fabric and place on fabric glossy face down on the fabric.

Textured or rough fabric will yield a rustic/distressed look versus smoother fabrics would provide better transfer performance.

- Can you print something on this?
- No, the idea of foil transfer is that you cut a writing or design on the adhesive sheet
(You can use a scissor or if you have a cutter such as Silhouette or Cricut, peel the excess adhesive liner off and then transfer the adhesive sheet in a mirrored form on the fabric, then peel cold and cover now the adhesive which is now on the garment with the foil, iron it and peel again when cold and voila you will have a foil wording or design on your shirt.
- Does the NuFun Activities Foil Transfer Paper stick on mugs?
- We don't recommend using it on mugs, we only recommend it on flat surfaces where you can iron the adhesive and the foil layer evenly.
