yes.. but i feel like there has got to be an easier way to put the letters on

After cutting and  weeding, are you peeling the Heat Press Vinyl off the clear transfer sheet before pressing?

You should be pressing with the transfer sheet on and peel it off after pressing.

Something sounds seriously foo barred.  Maybe you have the wrong type of vinyl?  It has to be HTV.  I don't understand this folding your talking about.  A weeded HTV item sits right on the shirt, letting me move it around.  Maybe if I left it on the press with the press on for a day or two something bad might happen, but I've never seen that.  This makes me think you have something other than Heat Transfer Vinyl.

 

Don't forget to mirror image.
