Transfer tape, also known as application tape or “pre-mask”, is a staple of digital graphics.Application tape is so called because it transfers your vinyl graphics and decals after you’ve cut them on your vinyl cutter. After the decal has been cut and weeded, it has to be transferred to a substrate. Some vinyl like 6mil Chalkboard or printable wall vinyl, can be transferred by hand. But for most vinyl graphics jobs, transfer tape is essential.
Adhesive Vinyl require clear transfer tape and Siser TTD high tack mask tape is required for Siser EasyPatterns and StarCraft Dark Transfers.
