Iron on transfers are a popular method of heat transferring designs or images onto fabric. They are a convenient way to add decorative elements to clothing, create custom T-shirts, and personalise clothing.
Typically, iron-on transfers comprise of a printed design or image on a special transfer paper or vinyl sheet that can be adhered to fabric using heat and pressure.

Here is an overview of how iron-on transfers function:

Design Creation: To begin, create or select a design or image to be transferred onto fabric. You may utilise graphic design software, online tools, or for-sale pre-made designs.

We provide ready-made templates for football badges. Otherwise, we can create the design you desire, or you can email us the artwork for your insignia.

Using an inkjet printer, print the design onto iron-on transfer paper or vinyl sheets. Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer for printing on the specific type of transfer paper you have.

Our iron-on transfers are printed on vinyl, which increases their longevity.

Select the fabric you wish to transfer the design to and make sure it is spotless and free of wrinkles. Typically, it is advised to pre-wash the fabric to remove any sizing or chemicals that may interfere with the transfer process.

Trim the design on the transfer paper, leaving a small margin around the perimeter. Place the transfer paper with the printed side facing down on the fabric, ensuring that it is centred and properly aligned.

Applying Heat and Pressure: Protect the transfer paper from direct iron contact by placing a thin cotton cloth or parchment paper over it. As you iron over the design, preheat your iron to the appropriate temperature (typically indicated on the transfer paper packaging) and apply firm, even pressure. Be certain to adhere to the recommended ironing time for the transfer paper you are using.

After ironing, allow the fabric to cool thoroughly before peeling. Once the fabric has cooled, carefully remove the underlying paper or vinyl sheet, leaving the transferred design behind.

Some transfer papers necessitate an additional step of covering the transferred design with a protective sheet or parchment paper and momentarily ironing it again to set the ink. Follow any post-transfer instructions provided by the manufacturer.

Iron on transfers for clothing are a great way to personalise clothing.

How to Apply Iron on Transfers for Clothing

Printing onto clothing can be complicated, but here’s how we make it easy for you.

First, make sure that your iron is clean and heated to the right temperature. This will help the transfer adhere to your garment better.

Next, apply heat to both sides of the transfer using an iron on medium heat until they are fully adhered to their backing paper (this usually takes about 30 seconds).

Once they’re attached, simply peel away their backing paper while still holding them against your garment with one hand!

If there are any air bubbles or creases left behind after peeling off their backing paper, just smooth them out with a finger or coin before applying additional pressure with another piece of cloth over top – this should help smooth out those pesky wrinkles in no time at all!

Make sure the iron or heat press machine should have a temperature of at least 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

Also they should have a pressure of at least 15 psi (pounds per square inch).

Make sure that your iron/press is clean and free of debris before using it for transfer purposes, as dust particles may cause damage to your design once applied on clothing!

Iron on transfers make it easy to customise clothing with unique designs. You can print any design onto clothing, as well as other fabrics such as canvas and t-shirts. This makes them great for personalising gifts or creating your own unique style!

The most common question we get about iron on transfers for clothing is:

What is the Main Difference Between Clothing transfers and Screen Printing?

One difference is that you can use an iron to apply Iron on transfers for clothing.

Screen printed shirts are made by applying paint or ink directly in layers. This creates a more detailed design than what you can get from an iron on transfer.

Screen printing has some advantages over using an iron-on transfer: it’s generally easier for artists who don’t have much experience with design software; it’s cheaper because you’re not paying for the cost of creating digital files; and it gives you more control over how dark or light your image will be when printed onto clothing material (although this isn’t always true).

However, if you have access to a computer and know how to use basic graphic design programs like Adobe Photoshop then making your own custom designs for shirts is probably easier than finding someone else who does good work at reasonable prices! And once those files are ready all you need do is upload them into our system before ordering!

Clothing transfers are so versatile if you want to print a logo or badges onto clothing or other fabric items.

You can also use them to add personal touches, such as names or nicknames that represent the wearer in some way.
