Heat Transfer Vinyl

I’ve had several messages today asking me where I buy my heat transfer vinyl and how much I pay for it – I’m really happy to share information on this!

I buy a lot of vinyl, both heat transfer, and self adhesive vinyl from the following places: ALL OF THESE PLACES SELL TOP QUALITY VINYL THAT CAN BE APPLIED WITH AN IRON, WASH AND DRY WELL ETC.

Also, for most top quality plain coloured HTV, if you paying more than about £1.50 for aHTV sheet then you are being ripped off – I saw the Dalton Manor heat transfer vinyl show today on Create and Craft and the 12″x12″ sheets work out to about £4.50 a sheet – I’m sorry, bit that is a rip off price so check these websites below and do your price comparisons before you buy.

One of my FAVOURITE places is GM Crafts – http://www.gmcrafts.co.uk

they stock a WONDERFUL range of heat transfer vinyl – lots of starter kits and bundles, they stock plain colours, glitter, chrome, patterned, rainbow, metallic, inkjet printable vinyl and even light reactive vinyl which looks white indoors, and changes colour when you get it outside in the daylight. They also stock heat reactive vinyl which changes as you touch it (I have to try this vinyl!) as well as 3D bubble up vinyl, and glow in the dark vinyl. How fun is that! 🙂

They do 12″ wide vinyl as well which is perfect for use on the ScanNCut!

Check out and compare their fantastic prices which include free UK delivery! They have EXCELLENT prices on all their products, can you see why I love to shop on this site? 🙂

AND – GMCrafts have a downloadable cutting and pressing guide for all their types of vinyl – https://www.gmcrafts.co.uk/product-guides-media/

My next favourite is MDP supplies – https://www.mdpsupplies.co.uk/

  • large range of heat transfer vinyl – you can download a useful guide from the site telling you how to apply the vinyl, and whether it is hot peel, or cold peel.

They sell A4 size sheets, mini rolls, by the meter etc.

They also stock a selection of 12″x12″ sheets – https://www.mdpsupplies.co.uk/cricut

They also have a helpful guide for pressing every type of vinyl they sell – https://www.mdpsupplies.co.uk/datasheets/garmentfilmsettings.pdf

Hope this helps and have fun exploring all the different types!


Makers Superstore, MDP Supplies and GM Crafts update

I thought it would be helpful to post some information up on some of the most popular ScanNCut related businesses that are thankfully still able to operate safely at the current time – if you read through to the bottom, I have information on Makers Superstore (ScanNCut machines, accessories, kits and more) – MDP Supplies (vinyl) and GM Crafts (vinyl).


MAKERS SUPERSTORE: http://www.makerssuperstore.com

I’m subscribed to the Makers Superstore newsletter, and received this message which I wanted to pass on for others:

“Dear Makers,

I hope you’re holding up well during these unprecedented times. I thought I’d give you an update from Makers HQ. 
For the moment MakersSuperstore.com will remain open for business. It’s important to me that we are still able to support creativity through this time of social hardship and uncertainty.

However, to safeguard our team and to ensure we comply with the Government guidelines, the following operational changes have been put in place.

-All the Makers team now work from home.
-All internal and external meetings are now virtual.
-My ‘better half’ and I will be personally packing your orders, our office is a short walk from our home, we have no issue complying with social
distancing and all contact remaining within the family household unit. 
Our delivery partner DPD continue to pick up from our facility and as such we plan to maintain our next working day delivery. However, this may be impacted subject to localised network delays. 

Contact free delivery
DPD now operate a contact free delivery process recognising that some people may be self- isolating and unwilling or unable to open their door to receive parcels.

They have a range of delivery options for everyone:

You can download the DPD app and set your delivery preferences to leave in a safe place.

If you don’t have the DPD app you can now leave a note on your front door telling DPD where to leave your parcel and the driver will take a photo. Please note that without the ‘leave in a safe place’ instruction, the driver will not deliver the parcel.

I’d like to thank all those that have sent us messages of support. As a relatively new business with a small dedicated team it’s great to know the people are there for you. 
As mentioned in previous emails, Makers, let’s keep an eye out for each other, if we can do anything for you or you just want to share your boredom busting makes or tips, please get in touch through our social communities or email via team@makersretail.co.uk and remember you’re never alone in our Makers family.

Stay safe 

Tony and the Makers Team”
