How to Use Iron on Transfer Paper
Buy transfer paper
You can buy transfer papersat most crafts stores, art stores, and big box retailers.
Create your own transfer
Find or create an image you want to use for the transfer. Google and Bing images are a good
place to start, just be careful of copyrights.
Manipulate the image
Using photoshop or any other image edting software, you can resize your image, add effects,
change colors, or do whatever you want until it's just right. Use your editing program to mirror
the image so that it comes out correctly on the fabric you transfer it to if doing a light colored
shirt using Light Heat Transfer Paper. No need to mirror image for Dark Transfer Paper.
Print the transfer
Always do a test print on a plain piece of paper. No need to waste time and effort, not to mention
money on a failed transfer print. Make sure to load the transfer paper so that the image will print
on the correct side.
Lay out the fabric
Place the t-shirt (or other cloth to which the image will be transferred) on a hard, flat surface, and
smooth out any wrinkles. The work surface should be heat resistant and should be large enough to
accommodate the entire area of the transfer with a little room to spare. Directions on pressing will
depend on the type of transfer paper (light or dark) that you are using. See specific papers for further

to clothing, turn the article of clothing inside out before washing.

better see where exactly you're putting the transfer on the fabric.
