Replacement is the sole obligation under this warranty.

IRON-ON TRANSFER I

PRINTING THE IMAGE
  1. Choose the image to print.
  2. Select a smooth, light colored cotton or cotton blend item. For more textured fabrics like canvas, we recommend our Iron-On Transfer II.
  3. Keep in mind that the transfer is slightly translucent and the fabric color will show through the image on your transfer.
  4. Load the transfer so that the blank side receives the image. Check your printer manufacturer’s manual for directions. Load only one sheet of paper at a time for best results.
  5. DO NOT reverse or mirror the image before printing.
  6. We recommend printing your image on computer paper first to test ink coverage, image clarity, size and placement.

TRIMMING THE TRANSFER
  1. After printing, trim around the image the way you want it to appear on your garment.
REMOVING THE TRANSFER BACKING
  1. Begin in a corner and bend it back slightly.
  2. Gently peel the backing from the transfer.
PRESSING THE TRANSFER IN PLACE
  1. Preheat the iron to Medium High (Cotton/Linen Setting). NO STEAM.
  2. Fold a towel in half and place it on a hard, smooth surface (not an ironing board). Iron the towel to smooth it out and remove the wrinkles.
  3. Place the garment on the towel. Position the transfer on the garment “FACE UP.” Place the parchment sheet over the transfer so that the entire transfer fits under the parchment. For a very large transfer it may be necessary to overlap two sheets of Parchment. (Direct contact with the iron will cause your transfer to melt.)
  4. With firm pressure, slide the iron along all sides and through the center of the image. Each side of the image should receive 15 seconds of constant heat to secure. Repeat, giving each side of the image another 15 seconds of heat. Allow the parchment sheet to cool about 2 minutes before removing. If the parchment sticks to the transfer as you attempt to remove it, allow the transfer to cool longer. • If, after removing the transfer, there is a side that did not stick, repeat the ironing process for that side.

IRON-ON TRANSFER II

PRINTING THE IMAGE

Choose the image to print.

Select cotton or cotton blend item of light or dark color. This transfer works especially well on smooth or textured surfaces such as canvas.

Load the transfer so that the blank side receives the image. Check your printer manufacturer’s manual for directions. Load only one sheet of paper at a time for best results.

DO NOT reverse or mirror the image before printing.

If you wish to pre-wash your garment before transferring the image, do not use fabric softener or bleach.

We recommend printing your image on computer paper first to test ink coverage, image clarity, size and placement.

TRIMMING THE TRANSFER AND REMOVING THE TRANSFER BACKING

  1. After printing, trim close around the image EXACTLY the way you want it to appear on your garment.
  2. Begin in a corner and bend it back slightly.
  3. Gently peel the backing from the transfer.

PRESSING THE TRANSFER IN PLACE

  1. Preheat the iron to Medium High. NO STEAM.
  2. Fold a towel in half and place it on a hard, smooth surface (not an ironing board). Iron the towel to smooth it out and remove the wrinkles.
  3. Place the garment on the towel. Position the transfer on the garment “FACE UP.” Place the silicone sheet over the transfer so that the entire transfer fits under the silicone. For a very large transfer it may be necessary to overlap two sheets of silicone. (Direct contact with the iron will cause your transfer to melt.)
  4. With firm pressure, slide the iron along all sides and through the center of the image. Each side of the image should receive 10 seconds of constant heat to secure. Repeat, giving each side of the image another 10 seconds of heat. Allow the silicone sheet to cool before removing. If the silicone sticks to the transfer as you attempt to remove it, allow the transfer to cool longer.
  5. If, after removing the transfer, there is a side that did not stick, repeat the ironing process for that side.
WASHING INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Turn the garment inside out.
  2. Machine wash on gentle cycle using cold water.
  3. Tumble dry low or air dry.
  4. If ironing the fabric becomes necessary, reuse your parchment sheet as a pressing cloth. Or, iron from the wrong side. Never apply heat directly to the transfer.

Note: If image needs to be resealed to the fabric following washing, reuse the parchment sheet and apply additional heat to the image to reseal.
