1. Design Your Image
Your will need to decide on what material you want to transfer it with. For this shirt we used Iron on metallic vinyl but there are lots of different iron on materials like glitter, ink, and normal vinyl. Then you can use the appropriate software to create your design. This is the hardest part. If you have any skill creating graphics you can create the image on your Sillouette or Cricut or a pdf on other software. We have already done this and you can download our design below.
2. Print or cut your image
Purchase Our Digital Graphic $9.99
Once you have your design ready you will need to cut or print it out. Be sure to STOP AND READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. You will probably need to invert your image(print backwards) for it to turn out correctly. Also be sure to take into account your print size. Most cutting machines only print 12x12. We used the entire space. For a pdf it took a couple of test prints to make the image fit the transfer paper correctly. Once you print you will need to weed the cut to reveal the image.
I put a piece of wax paper to save my cut until I was ready to iron it on.
3. Iron on your image
This is the scary part! Just kidding if you are using vinyl this is the easy part it just feels scary. First with any material you should iron the shirt or bag first with no steam to make sure it is lying flat and to remove any moisture. Then follow the instructions on your transfer material to iron on your image.
