HTV Puff 3D

Puff PU is a soft feel heat transfer vinyl for a t-shirt or any other garment decoration. Need to press only once to get the Foam Pop-up effect!

It expands under the heat press and gives your transfer a matte 3D effect/finish.

HTV Puff PU may not expand properly if the design/image is cut too large. For the best results, plain shapes such as rectangles, squares, or circles shouldn’t be more than 4cm in diameter.

Puff iron-on vinyl doesn’t flake or fade during washing. Make some fun look!

Product Information

A polyurethane-based foaming vinyl that makes a self-expansion by heating.

Before the transfer process, it appears as a normal heat transfer vinyl; however, it expands under heat.

When Puff HTV is applied to a pure polyester material, particularly lightweight material, the vinyl will rise more.


IMPORTANT: Instructions- for the best result heat press ( not a domestic iron), medium pressure.

Silver and Gold colour –  130 degrees for 30 sec.

Neon colours – 160 degrees for 7-9 sec

Standard colours – 160 degrees for 7-9 sec

Black and White colour – 160 degrees for 7-9 sec

* We recommend playing with temperatures to find the best for your specific heat press. Additionally, even pressure can make an impact on the result. The material of the garment also plays a role; in particular, a lighter material lifts the vinyl more, resulting in more significant puffiness. Furthermore, the pressure of the heat press must be aimed precisely towards the Puff Pu transfer. This tip is especially important when using a small heat press like a Cricut press.

HTV Puff, also known as 3D vinyl, you can buy in the following cuts:

• Formatted cuts of 20cm x 25cm, 30cm x 50cm and 50cm x 1M
