Vinyl Plotting: Decal Making & T-shirt Heat Transfer Basics

September 27 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Vinyl is a single colour roll of sticker paper material. It is durable, waterproof, and comes with a removable backing. After cutting, you separate the excess material from the backing and depending on the type of material you use, your design can then be applied onto walls, clothes, cars, and more!

This class teaches you how to design and optimize your file for vinyl plotting, and techniques for vinyl application.

Project: Heat transfer T-shirt and custom wall/car decal “5 in. x 5 in.”

Difficulty: Beginner

Age: 14+

Duration: 3 hours

Prerequisite: None. Though 2D CAD experience, drawing with vector programs like Illustrator or Inkscape is a plus!

**Please note registration closes 24 hours prior to class**

Come to our workshop if:

  • You have gifts you want to customize and personalize.
  • You have a design that you want to transfer onto multiple surfaces.
  • You have an idea that you want to turn into a physical project.
  • You like having simple machines create complex designs.

Skills Learned:

  • Creating your own vector designs
  • Setting up your files for vinyl plotting
  • Optimizing your workflow for easy cleanup and application
  • Running the vinyl plotter
  • Applying a design onto a t-shirt

By the end of this class, you will know how to design your own files for cutting, be familiar with different vinyl as well as their application types, and be able to successfully apply your designs on many surfaces!
