Heat Transfer Paper FAQ's

What is Iron On Transfer Paper

Iron-on transfer paper, also known as iron-on transfer sheets or iron-on decals, is a type of specialty paper that allows you to transfer designs, images, or text onto fabric or other compatible surfaces using heat from a household iron. It is commonly used for creating personalized t-shirts, bags, pillows, and other fabric items.

How do you use heat transfer paper?

  1. Design your artwork: Create or select the design you want to transfer onto the fabric. You can use graphic design software or choose from pre-designed templates.
  2. Print your design: Load the iron-on transfer paper into your inkjet or laser printer, depending on the type of transfer paper you have. Ensure that you're using the appropriate print settings recommended by the transfer paper manufacturer for optimal results.
  3. Mirror your design (optional): Some iron-on transfer papers require you to reverse or mirror your design before printing. This step is necessary when your design includes text or if you want the final transferred image to face the correct direction when applied to the fabric. Check the instructions provided with the transfer paper to see if mirroring is required.
  4. Trim the design: Once you have printed your design onto the transfer paper, carefully cut around the edges of the design, leaving a small border if necessary.
  5. Preheat your iron: Set your household iron to the appropriate temperature setting recommended by the transfer paper manufacturer. Make sure to choose the setting suitable for the fabric you're using.
  6. Position the transfer: Place the fabric item on a flat, heat-resistant surface. Position your printed design onto the fabric, ensuring it is placed in the desired location.
  7. Apply heat and pressure: Place a thin cloth or parchment paper over the design to protect it and the iron. Firmly press the iron down on the transfer, applying steady pressure. Move the iron around the design, ensuring that you cover the entire surface area. Follow the recommended heat and pressing time specified by the transfer paper manufacturer.
  8. Allow it to cool and peel: After the specified time, remove the iron and allow the transfer to cool for a few seconds. Slowly peel off the backing paper, starting from one corner and pulling at a 180-degree angle. Be careful not to disturb the transferred design.
  9. Finalize the process: After removing the backing paper, check the transferred design for any imperfections or incomplete transfers. If necessary, repeat the heat transfer process using additional heat and pressure.
It's important to note that the specific instructions and recommendations may vary depending on the brand and type of iron-on transfer paper you are using. Always refer to the manufacturer's guidelines for the best results.
