For those who are looking for a quick and easy way to make tshirts, tote bags and more, the new Sister EasyColor DTV is an attractive option for sure. At its core, the EasyColor DTV is a printable heat transfer vinyl–no sublimation or special ink required. in fact, DTV stands for Direct To Vinyl, which means that you can print directly on this transfer paper with any standard inkjet printer. If you have a Cricut, it’s SUPER easy to cut out your designs using the Cricut Print then Cut feature, too!

We’ve tried other printable HTVs before, so we were curious how this one would perform. And we were extra curious if the price–which is a little higher than others on the market–meant that you got better quality. After testing it on light and dark fabrics (and running it through the washer and dryer), we can definitely say that we are impressed.

The one sticking point for a few makers that we ran into, though, was that it does have a shiny appearance if you use the transfer tape. However, we found a neat and easy hack to get a perfectly matte finish. We cover all of that and more in the video tutorial below!
