If you are looking for a versatile, durable, and less expensive material for your heat transfer projects, consider trying our GT5250 HTV (heat transfer vinyl), a low-temperature, fast-press heat transfer vinyl. GT5250 is designed to adhere to fabrics at lower temperatures than other HTV brands, which means you can use it on heat-sensitive materials like cotton, polyester, and spandex.  In this blog post, I will explain what low-temperature heat transfer vinyl is, how to use it, and what are some of the benefits of this material.

GT5250 heat transfer vinyl is a thin and flexible material that can be cut into shapes and designs using a cutting machine like a Cricut, Silhouette, Summa, Mimaki, or Graphtec. The material has a heat-activated adhesive on the back that bonds to the fabric when pressed with a heat press or iron. Unlike regular heat transfer vinyl, which usually requires a temperature of 305-330°F, GT5250 can be applied at 250°.

Using GT5250 heat transfer vinyl requires the same steps as other HTVs, but the press time is shorter, and the temperature is lower.  Easy, peasy. Fast and breezy!


What are some of the benefits of GT5250 heat transfer vinyl?


  1. It can be used on heat-sensitive fabrics that might scorch or melt at higher temperatures, such as polyester, spandex, and cotton.
  2. It can reduce the risk of damaging your fabric or your vinyl due to overheating or over-pressing.
  3. Better results when using an iron because of the lower temperature.
  4. It can save energy and time by using lower temperatures and shorter pressing times.
