Transfer Tape greatly facilitates the vinyl application process. Transfer tape comes into play after the vinyl has been properly cut (cut does not cut through the backing) and weeded (excess vinyl removed from design). The transfer tape will then be applied over top of the design sticking to the vinyl. Then, when the tape is removed from the backing, it brings the vinyl with it. This is greatly beneficial when working with intricate projects or designs with multiple pieces that need to maintain proper spacing and placement.
While all of our vinyl has a medium-tack adhesive, our NEW Opaque/Transparent Transfer Tape has an opaque finish that not only allows for precise positioning but is also repositionable. Known for it's exceptional lay-flat characteristics, it unwinds easily and resists tunneling and curling.
Available in 4 roll sizes:
- 6"x100 ft.
12X100 ROLL OPAQUE review by Caitlyn on 9/2/2016
It isn't as sticky as my cricut transfer tape. It picked up my 651, but not glitter vinyl. I'm new to all this, but not sure if I like this compared to the cricut transfer tape. I will keep using it because I can't return it since I've already used some.
Not a good transfer tape review by Melissa on 8/3/2016
This is the first time ordering this transfer tape and it is not recommended at all. The tape does not easily stick to the vinyl after weeding and once it does it will not "let go" of it to transfer it on to the project. I have ruined much vinyl trying to transfer it on to a project using this tape. It also rips extremely easily, therefore you are unable to reuse any of it.
Excellent transfer tape review by Rebecca on 7/20/2016
BEST. TRANSFER. TAPE. EVER.
Not sure?! review by MDR on 7/8/2016
I ordered this rather than the clear I generally use. At first it worked great, I was actually pleasantly surprised, loved it!!!! After a bit, it seems it has become overly sticky and is leaving a residue on my vinyl (and whatever item I'm adhering it to) once applied. Sometimes when i am unrolling it from the sheet to be used, chunks of the adhesive comes off from the part I am trying to get and leaves the residue on the top of the unrolled portion. Not sure if I got a bum roll or not, but I still have 90% of the roll to go and am afraid to use it with customers! I need more, but not sure what to get now . . . :(
Awful review by Jenna on 7/7/2016
Purchased the opaque transfer tape and it left a sticky residue once I transferred the vinyl onto my item. I literally had to rub the vinyl with my fingers to get the residue to ball up and peel off. Definitely will not purchase this type again.
Best Transfer Tape review by Eileen on 5/4/2016
I had previously purchased a roll of transfer tape after using contact paper and was pleased at how much easier it was to work with...Then saw that Expressions had discontinued their old and had a new replacement. I bought the new roll and couldn't be happier...just the right amount of stickyness, very easy to work with and love the new texture.....weeding and placement is now a breeze....Thank you, Thank You, Thank You !!!!
Ok on some vinyl review by Kristina on 4/16/2016
I got this and used it on a large permanent vinyl piece. It stuck to the vinyl so badly I ruined the whole 12x12 sheet. It worked fine on the indoor vinyl. Not happy I ruined a whole sheet of vinyl and wasted my time. Will only use on indoor vinyl projects.
Paper transfer tape review by Lyndie on 6/18/2015
I love it!!! It's very easy to use and works on everything!!! I use my Cricut and vinyl at school a lot, so I actually bought a second roll to use there!!!
This stuff is great! review by Nicki on 6/9/2015
When I bought my silhouette, I bought the contact paper they sell. It worked okay but not great, gave me trouble on different projects. The Silhouette School Blog recommended this, so I gave it a try. So glad I did. It makes placing vinyl on things so much easier, I love that I can see thru it for placing and its sticky with out being to sticky. Plus for the price you get a ton of it!
Perfect for 631 review by Justine on 5/12/2015
I almost only work with 631, matte vinyl, and this transfer tape is the best I've found for that material. I love the 6" width because it's less likely to bubble when placing on large cuts of vinyl. All in all, a great product. I'm very pleased with it.

Works Great review by Carrie Petit on 10/25/2014
I recently bought this transfer tape and it works great with vinyl! Very easy to apply and I have even re-used pieces a few times. I am definitely buying this again
GREAT STUFF! review by Stephanie on 2/11/2014
I have been using this to transfer all my vinyl to my canvases, the walls, and even onto CARDSTOCK! I was super happy it didn't tear the cardstock!
Paper Transfer Tape review by Patricia on 1/1/2014
This was a great product to use for a lettering project I did for an attorneys office in downtown Augusta. It pulled the cut letters off of the cutting mat superbly and the transfer process to the window went perfect. I will continue to use this for my vinyl projects.
12x100 roll clear transfer tape review by Cheryl on 8/30/2013
After buying a small piece of this product I came back for an entire roll. This is the only transfer tape I will now use. It's so easy since it's clear. I love, love it.
