Firstly, let me say, layering vinyl is pretty easy, people tend to overthink it. The trick is to use transfer paper to layer the design first.
Not to mention, I have made it extra easy in these Starbucks-Inspired SVG files. I made sure it has registration marks so you can easily overlap the layers.

The best vinyl is permanent adhesive vinyl or outdoor vinyl to make your layered vinyl decal. This will make the design permanent but it still will not be dishwasher safe.
Indoor vinyl is generally removable and you want a longer lasting adhesive if you are making a cup. My favorite to use is Oracal, however, I do like Kassa Brand too.
You can seal your artwork with epoxy, or even try dishwasher-safe Mod Podge to seal in the design.
For example, I am going to show you how to set up your SVG design in Cricut Design Space. Secondly, I am going to show you how to make customized Starbucks cups. Plus also how to use multiple colors to achieve the look.!
Nevertheless, these Starbucks coffee-inspired SVG files are the perfect way to learn about layering.
After all, you just have to follow the directions closely, and you will be layering like a pro in no time.
These would also go great on your Starbucks cold cups, they are perfected for putting in an iced pumpkin drink!

You will need to use acetone to make sure there is no grease or residue on the surface area.
You can use this method on a stainless steel tumbler. Just follow the instructions below to layer the image onto the transfer tape, removing the paper backing between each layer.
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.
