Transfer tape is tricky! You want it strong enough to lift the vinyl from the liner, but also not too strong that it leaves the vinyl on your finished substrate. Therefore, transfer tape really depends on each person's preference.
Here's some tips and tricks!
- Apply your transfer tape, and burnish it well. Instead of peeling the transfer tape towards you, flip the design over so the liner backing is faced up, and peel the liner towards you.
- Ensure that you are not cutting too deep. If you cut into the liner backing, it will be very difficult to remove the liner. If you can feel the cuts in the liner, it's too deep.
