How to Use a Heat Transfer Pen

Using a transfer pen takes a few things, a great pen with a fine tip, tracing paper, heat, and pressure.

This video will help you get reliable results each time you transfer your images. One of my favorite references for anything embroidery-related, I check out with Sublime Stitching suggests. I know this video is a little long, and I promise to update it once I have some help and don’t have to do it all on my own.

But for now, this is a great way to know or learn how to use a heat transfer pen for your embroidery creations; heat transfer pens can be fine-tipped or bold and broad. I love the fine tips due to not wanting people to see the transfer under the stitches.

Heat Transfer Pen –

There are many types of pens; my go-to is the Sublime Stitching.  However, the Sulky pens are also an excellent pen to use and be careful with pressing too hard and damaging the pen tip.  The tracing paper I love is Bienfang Tracing and Sketch paper from Amazon; I am using it in the video. I also love the Sulky brand transfer pens; they have all kinds of colors and tip sizes to ensure that you get the finish you want!

Try different supplies and find the one you like the best; there are so many brands. I tend to try a few methods and brands; I will say so far, my favorite is the Fine Tip Iron-On pens that I got from Sublime Stitching. Jenny knows her stuff when it comes to embroidery.
