Everything You Need to Know About HappyFlex HTV

HappyFlex HTV

As you get stuck into all your new year crafts, we wanted to take things back to basics and provide you with everything you need to know about our amazing vinyl.

This week we are talking all things HappyFlex!

Our best-selling flex vinyl offers a HUGE range of colours and prints including animal, chameleon and even stretch. Whether you’re a mega fan of the leopard print (who isn’t?!) or love something with a bit of shimmer, there’s something for everyone.

All of our flex vinyl is well suited for application to cotton, polyester and poly/ cotton blends and can be easily cut with scissors or your favourite cutting machine including Silhouette, Cricut and Brother Scan N Cut. HappyFlex stretch is the perfect option for those wanting to add HTV to more elastic fabrics such as jersey and elastane as it stretches with the fabric.


  • Pre -press your garment for two to three seconds to eliminate residual moisture and creases. A plain surface is super important when fusing any of our vinyl.
  • HappyFlex fusing temperature is 15°C (or the two-dot setting on your iron), with a fusing time of 10 seconds. It’s safe to peel the carrier plastic when it is still hot.
  • If you’re using an iron, make sure the surface is solid and flat. Pay special attention to the edges to make sure your design will stick to the garment permanently.
  • For a long-lasting print, let the garment rest up to two days before the first wash. The print is washable up to 40°C
  • If you turn your garment inside out before washing or ironing the colours will remain vibrant for a long time.

Our favourite HappyFlex projects

We created this personalised zip up pouch using our HappyFlex Animal HTV. We love the ombre effect with Turquoise and pink together! The Heat Transfer Vinyl film is super easy to cut and even easier to weed. With a matt smooth finish, your makes are guarenteed to look fabulous.

From a plain pair of leggings to something more motivating, HappyFlex Stretch is perfect for those stretchy fabrics as it moves with the material. HappyFlex Stretch has a semi-matt finish, a soft surface AND comes in 37 colours!!

Everyone knows that we at HappyFabric HQ love a polka dot! This was created using small and large HappyFlex dots in these beautiful sunny colours. What a great way to distract yourself from the winter weather! This was such a fun and easy project. What design would you add to your t-shirt?
