I tried it first with the sticker method and because the wording is so thin and contoured around it is very hard to handle. I was able to do it very carefully, but I have handled 500 of these things. There is NO WAY a customer would be able to and they would screw it up 90% of the time guaranteed. The other problem is as you all know that have created a decal the hot fix tape gets so stuck to the decals you can also not apply it like a regular vinyl decal because it would stick to the surface it the bond is stronger on the Hot fix tape. This is why everyone is including myself is doing dense designs. Single line fonts are difficult to apply. But, I have some stuff coming in this week I think may work? Who knows. I hope so. I just sent out a few samples to Victoria Secret yesterday. A rep contacted me about some stuff they want in their stores. If it works, ALL of their stores! LOL
