Inkjet printer iron on transfer paper
Easy cool-peel backing, just print, iron, let cool, then peel.
This is an amazing product for all you crafty people! My daughter took family photos from Facebook and printed them using this paper, she then ironed it onto fabric and made her baby a book about her family. This book has been well loved by the baby - sucked on, screwed up, covered in food etc but the images have lasted really well, two years later now and the photos are still clear and easy to see.
So easy to use, load in the paper area making sure the sheets are the right way up and print - please note when printing out words to print in mirror image so they will transfer the right way!
Then line up on fabric not gliding the iron, use more of a pressing motion to ensure the image does not move while it is being transferred, a medium heat is sufficient to create the transfer so this opens up a variety of fabrics that can be used. Press for 30 seconds, allow fabric and transfer paper to cool down then peel the backing paper away in a smooth, even motion. Care use is to leave for 24 hours before washing, then wash with image inside, use mild detergent and wash with light items. When ironing, do not iron directly on the transfer.
I highly recommend this product as a great way to personalise your creations!
This inkjet transfer paper is so cool! My daughter was given this as a present for her birthday it is quite expensive for a packet so I probably wouldn't of thought to buy it for her but after using it I would definitely buy it again now that I think I have figured out how to use it properly.
The cool thing is you can design any transfer you want as you just print out your own pictures on your home printer. We just used pictures from google but you could easily use your own photos. The one thing we wanted to do but couldn't figure out was how to do writing so that it was in reverse so when applied to the tshirt would be the right way around. Apparently you can do this in photoshop so if you knew how to use photoshop that would be pretty easy too.
As long as you have plenty of ink in your printer the images print out in great quality onto the transfer paper and when they transfer onto your clothing item they are still really bright and clear images. The paper the first couple of times was really hard to apply and I ruined a couple of the tshirts we bought to try it on. You have to really push down quite hard with the iron and do it bit by bit as if you just glide over the top it doesn't work.
Then the next tricky bit is carefully peeling the backing paper off, you have to go from the corner and go really slowly making sure it has stuck in all places, so if it hasn't you can go over that spot with the iron before you peel any further. It took me a few goes to get it right but am quite confident with doing it now. The trick is a hot iron a hard bench surface and a lot of paitence.
