Sorority shirts and spray Adhesives

Sorority Shirts

I have been working on some shirts for my friends daughter.  These shirts are labor intensive and  I'm glad that this is only for her and her friends as a gift for their graduation.   

I realize why they are so pricy.  It's not an easy task to get this kind of work done.. 

I have a blog on how to do this kind of work.. I learned  that cutting vynle and twill are not the same.. I had to get spray adhesive. 

Which do you get ??!!

I got four.  I hate going back to a store because what I got didn't work. 

Tacky spray

This one worked great I would spray fabric and place on cutter pad and the cutter cut the letters without the twill which is like vynle fabric lift and shift.  After the letter is remove it is still tack but dry quickly.  The price is 11.99. 

Scotch super 77

My favorite.  It gave me the ability to cut a lot of letters in one pass and there was no lifting or shifting.. The problem is it is real sticky and when I was working with placement on the letters it was gummy on my fingers.  Positive is when placed on fabric of shirt it was not going to move.. It did take longer to dry..  But it work great. 

Price was 15.99. Little pricy but works great. 

Scotch spray mount

This worked okay.  Wasn't as tacky and to cut one letter it if I tried to cut several letters the cutter would lift the twill and make a frustrating mess on the machine.. I waisted more twlll and jammed my machine because it wasn't sticky enough to hold the material down on the cutting pad.  

Aleene's spray-on decoupage adhesive

This worked well.  It was the cheapest of the bunch.  It was also on sale 5.99.  When it sprayed our it was stick and dried quickly. 

They all work but my favorite is schotch super 77.  It did help make my life easier.
