How to Apply Iron on T-Shirt Transfers

This is just a quick guide on how to iron on your T-Shirt transfer, this guide wont be helpful for people that want to put transfers on hats or other akaward shaped items. If you havent got a T-Shirt Transfer check Redemption Vinyls T-Shirt Transfers if you cant find what your looking for email Lets get started there are a few things you will need to have to make this happen:

  • An Iron
  • T-Shirt or hoodie
  • Transfer
  • Chopping Board, Drawing Board or similar
  1. First of all your going to need put your chopping board underneath your t-shirt, so where you want to put the design is in the centre of the chopping board, and just give this a quick iron to make sure its all flat.
  2. You just what to double check the transfer and make sure the sticky side doesn’t have any thing stuck to it. once that is fine you need to place the transfer sticky side down on the t-shirt where you want it and firmly rub the transfer to make sure its flat on the t-shirt. Now you will need to make sure the transfer is straight and where you want it, if its not shere you want to pull it off and stick it down again.
  3. Ideally if you have a heat press set it to 150oC but if you only have an iron then it is best to set it to the lowest cotton setting your iron has. now with your design where you want it and your iron up to temperature you will need to firmly iron the design, do not left the iron for too long in any one spot. it should take between 5-7 seconds. if the transparent plastic starts to warp then its getting to hot and you should turn down your iron.
  4. Now you just need let your t-shirt cool down. its important that you let it col down the hot glue on the transparent plastic will stick to your t-shirt and it is a real pain to get it off. once your t-shirt is cook slowly peel off the transparent plastic if glue is being left behind on the t-shirt let it cool down some more. the transfer should be on the t-shirt now as you peel the transparetn plastic off, if part of the design comes off with it then just stick it back down and iron it for a little longer.
  5. Once the transparent plastic if off put your t-shirt on and enjoy.
