Nope! No heat is used to apply the Waterslide Transfers.
What will these apply to?
Can be applied to tumblers, glass, metal, ceramic wear (decorative purposes), wood, furniture, candles, soap, model airplanes, die-cast cars,fishing rods, picture frames, book cover, albums, appliances, mirrors and more! These are just a few examples of where Waterslide Transfers can be used!
Are these permanent?
Absolutely! Once properly applied and completely dry, the Waterslide Transfers are permanent. If using on tumblers, a coating is needed due to the heat of a dishwasher cycle.
Do I have to seal the design or put a coating over it?
Our Waterslide Transfers are Laser Printed so they are considered permanent without sealing, UNLESS they will be placed in a dishwasher. If so, a layer of sealant is needed AFTER application.
