How many layers of vinyl can you layer?
I’ve layered as many as 5-6 layers on 1 project. The thing to keep in mind is that your design gets thicker with each layer.
Also, some types of vinyl are thicker so it may take fewer layers to get to where it’s no longer attractive.
Can you layer vinyl on top of glitter vinyl?
Glitter has grains. For that reason, it is hard to layer on top of it. However, you can layer glitter vinyl over top of the regular adhesive.
I love a good and cheap project and this one will cost you less than $3 to make each 1! This vinyl decal will make you the talk of your local Starbucks.
Not only does it look great on a hot cup. With a few adjustments, it would be awesome on any Starbuck tumblers.
For these reusable cups, I just removed the design that was on the front and made it my own.
I can not live without coffee so these are some of my favorite things to make.
Well, I love doing cups in general.

You will place the second layer on vinyl right on top of the first layer of vinyl. Take your time because once it is down, it is almost impossible to pull up. And then not only will your top layer be ruined but also your bottom.
For best results, keep your design to four or fewer layers. With each applied layer, the design becomes thicker and stiffer and may not appear as desired. If possible, allow the liner area of the inner and top layers to be large enough to cover the bottom layer.
