Iron-on or Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) is used to adhere vinyl to a project or material with heat.  This could include anything from t-shirts and bags, to wooden signs and leather earrings.  

Iron-on vinyl is very versatile. 

To apply iron-on vinyl, you would want to have a heat press of some sort.  I personally use the Cricut EasyPress 2 for all my iron-on projects.  Head here to learn more about the Cricut heat press.
