Oh we do love to make a statement with our T’s and many celebrities are no different.
Follow in the stylish footsteps of Molly and Cheryl by saying it all with this season’s essential printed T.

But what better way to own the perfect t-shirt than to make one yourself. Iron-on t-shirt transfers are the best options for t-shirt enthusiasts.

You’ll need a commercial heat press or a hand iron to do the transfer, a hard surface, a printer, and any bold-colored t-shirt.
Black or white work well, and you can experiment best on these colors. You’ll also need white paper, transfer paper, and a pair of scissors.
You may also want to check out Sublime t-shirts to see some products of iron-on transfer.

Iron-on t-shirt transfers are easy and economical. Follow these steps to make them a success: Print a preview copy of the image; flip, mirror, or reverse the image in your computer; use the appropriate type of transfer paper; make sure to print on the right side of the transfer paper; remember that white colors don’t print; do a trial on a scrap fabric; set your flat iron or heat press to its hottest setting; and carry out the iron-on transfer on a hard surface.
Never do the transfer on an ironing board, glass, bare wood, or any metal surface because it doesn’t hold the heat.
It is advised to carry out the transfer on a plain hard surface, such as Formica, because it doesn’t disperse the heat.

Don’t expect a perfect output on your first try. Just practice and have fun.
