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.”
Duration: 3 hours
Prerequisite: None. Though 2D CAD experience, drawing with vector programs like Illustrator or Inkscape is a plus!
