While it's marketed mostly as an alternative to sublimation for clothing you can do so much more with it - including applying to wood, canvas, flock, and glitter HTV.  Here are five of my favorite - and mind blowing - ways to use Inkjet Printable HTV. Read this and you'll see why I say it's a must have in every craft room! 

Starcraft Inkjet Printable HTV is my favorite and the one I use the most often for both lights and darks. I used the inkjet printable for lights for all of the examples below! 

Inkjet Printable on Wood 

If you're like me and you hate painting but you have multi-color designs you need to put onto wood which would require a lot of layers of HTV - use printable inkjet instead!  The process is as simple as print then press.
