Instructions for Fabric Transfer

First off, here's a video if you would rather see a trasnfer in action.

http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-make-and-use-iron-on-transfers

Having trouble with the video? Check out these instructions.

Here's a description of how creating a fabric transfer works. These instructions are adapted from http://www.mcgpaper.com/ (they also make great transfer paper!) and information I've learned over the years.

Buying Stuff:

1. Buy transfer paper. You can buy this any place office supplies are sold.
2. Buy an image from me. Any image purchased from me can be used for fabric transfer.

Preparing your Image and Iron:

3. Open up the image you purchased on your computer. If you purchased from me, it was attached to an e-mail I sent you. Most people use image editing software like Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro. I also know customers who use Picasa and even Word to open these images.
4. Verify that you are printing the image correctly. What I mean here is, if there are words or any portion of the image is oriented in a specific direction, you need to reverse your image. I mail a reverse image with every illustration I sell, so more often than not, you'll want to start off using that right off the bat.
5. Do you have your image exactly as you like it? Now would be a good time to preheat your iron. Don't use steam. Most tutorials recommend you heat your iron for at least 8 minutes.

Printing and Cutting:

6. Load the fabric transfer paper into your printer. Please follow the instructions on the transfer paper package for printing, the manufacturer knows way better than me! Make sure you let the printed transfer dry completely.
7. Once you have your transfer printed, cut around it. Don't be afraid to cut very close to the image, if not you may have a border that shows up in the final product.

Ironing:

8. Use an ironing board, placing a pillowcase in between the board and your fabric. Make sure there are no wrinkles anywhere.
9. Go ahead and pass the iron over the fabric you'll be using for a moment or two to wick away any moisture.
10. Place your transfer face down on the fabric in the desired position.
11. Press the iron down directly on the transfer in several different areas for at least fifteen seconds. Don't slide the iron to a different spot, lift up completely and adjust your position. This sets the image so when you do move the iron later, the transfer ink doesn't shift around.
12. Once you have firmly pressed on the entire image, move the iron in a circular motion applying light pressure to the transfer for another 15-20 seconds.
12. Once the transfer has cooled, remove the backing.
