Care Instructions

CAD-CUT Glitter Flake has a textured surface that may cause some fabrics, such as polyester and cotton fleece, to snag or pill during laundering. Hand wash and hang dry for best results.

Cutting Notes

Always test cut prior to any production run. Cutter settings will need to be adjusted as the blade ages. For optimal cutting and weeding, maintain a line thickness of at least 1/16” for lettering & logos.

  • Mixing silver glitter flake with a darker silver color, such as black/silver or the light multi, makes the regular silver color look white.

Questions & Answers

Everyone has questions. Tell us yours.

My cutter won’t cut after the job was sent from my computer. What could be the problem?
Check to see that your cables are securely connected from the computer to the cutter. If that doesn't work, consult your owner's manual.
Why must I change my cutter settings when I put in a new color of material?
Although the product may remain the same, the composition may vary from color to color, making some thicker or thinner than others. We suggest doing a test cut each time a new roll is put into your cutter.
Why is it necessary to pre-heat a garment before heat applying?
Pre-heating your garment removes the chemicals and moisture that may be in the garment due to manufacturing. Also, pre-heating assures a wrinkle free surface for heat application.
What is the difference between CAD-CUT® Glitter and Glitter Flake™?
Glitter has a glittery appearance and smooth finish vs. the textured fabric-like finish on Glitter Flake.
