  • What settings do I need to set my cutter at?

    Below are starting points for some of the most popular cutters. You may need to adjust the blade, speed and force depending on the cutter and sharpness of the blade. Please keep in mind that there are too many cutters for us to list them all, but the below information is a great starting point.

    !!YOU MUST HAVE A STRONG GRIP CUTTING MAT!!

    Cricut: Set the cutter to custom and choose the setting felt with backing.

    Cameo: Speed: 3 Thickness:40 and Blade: 8

    Graph Tech:
    Lace: Knife Depth about 1.0mm out of the holder, Speed to 10 and force at 25-27 CBU-15-45 blade

    Fabric: Knife depth about 1.5mm out of the holder, Speed to 5 and Force at 30 with CBU-09 Blade.

    Roland GX-24: Use a 60 blade with 120 down pressure speed 10. (this is a starting point some have used a 45 blade and more pressure.)

    You want to put the white release paper down on the Strong Sticky Mat - Fabric Up.

    Laser cutter: Each laser is different but you will find that it does not take much power and the speed is medium.

  • How do I apply the bonded fabric to my project?

    Once you have cut out your desired design, peel the white backing off, and place the design, adhesive side down, onto your material. If ironing lace, please use parchment paper to protect your iron from the adhesive that can seep through the netting of the lace. Iron setting should be set to cotton, please do not use steam. Please use caution as the iron is extremely hot. Iron directly onto the lace using firm pressure for 45 seconds or until adhesive has melted. Pressing instructions are to be used with most fabrics (excluding spandex.).

  • How do I care for my Hotfix Adhesive™

    Once the fabric is applied it can be washed in the washing machine and we recommend hanging to dry.
