The first thing you need to do when you print a design onto transfer paper is to reverse or mirror the image.
This can be done one of 2 ways. First, you can simply do it in the graphic software you use to create the design.
Or you can actually do it through the print dialogue when you go to print. Most computer printers will have a
setting for transfers. It will be either called “transfer” or something of that nature. If you are unsure, consult your
printer manual for details on the printer settings and functions.
Once your transfer paper is printed, it is a good idea to let the transfer set for an hour. This will allow the transfer
to become a little more stable to work with especially when trimming. Be very careful when trimming or handling
the printed transfer.
You will want to trim the paper as close to the design edges as possible. Leaving a very small white edge
around the image will be fine. That “halo” will be barely visible as a ring around the design. Just keep it as
small as humanly possible.Now you are ready to press the transfer to the shirt using an iron or heat press.
This is where we should talk about the heat application of your transfer. The inkjet heat transfers featured are
made for usage at home with an iron. However, the quality of your transfer depends greatly on the application.
You can use an iron with these transfers but if you use a heat press the transfer quality, durability and longevity
will be greatly enhanced and increased. The amount of heat and pressure that the heat press applies is far
greater than that of a household iron. In fact I say that using a good working heat press with any transfer
material will improve the quality of the transfer material's performance. Thus making it look better and last
