Heat transfer and other vinyl

So far I’ve been cutting mostly fabric with my Silhouette Cameo.  To tell the truth, I was a bit confused about vinyl as there seem to be so many different types. So it was time for some research and what better place to do that then on the Web. It seems we can find just about anything there. True enough, I found a terrific explanation at www.expressionsvinyl.com/specs.html. It is too long to copy it all here and I don’t want to bore you. Just click on the link if you are interested in learning about different types of vinyl. They also have a chart with the specific settings they use with their cutting machines. They do warn to use those settings as a starting point only and to always do a test cut first as there may be minor variations in machines and batches of vinyl.  There are charts for the Silhouette Cameo, Silhouette SD, Silhouette Cameo v3, and Cricut. Below is the one for the Cameo v3; the other charts can be found at www.expressionsvinyl.com/machine-settings.html .
