Any advice on the best vinyl to use on nylons. Some say they are only for UNCOATED nylon...how are you sure someting is "uncoated"? We would be doing nylon bags and jackets.
Thank you!
The tag should say whether the nylon is coated or not, but an easy way to tell is to sprinkle water onto the nylon surface. If it stays on the top on the nylon, then it is coated. If it sinks into the nylon surface after a few minutes, then it is not coated.

Most jackets and bags will be coated.

There are heat applied vinyls that will apply to some coated nylons, but I always recommend testing first.

test for sure.

I did some nylon bags and used the wrong stuff once and it came off pretty quickly.

I was using the least expensive stuff from signwarehouse.

Now we use Stahls almost all the time and love the thermo film-but not sure the use for nylon.

I only know for sure that the wrong stuff will come off.
