I just found this place and I can't believe there's a whole forum for iron-on transfer fans!
I've been doing transfers for a little while, but am still learning. I also know now I need a better inkjet printer.
I'm considering the Canon Pixma ip3000 or 4000, but recommendations are welcome.
This is a favorite shirt of mine, and I've had to make one for two other people after they saw mine. A lot of people ask where I got it, and I get all proud when I say I made it.
Here's an artsy shot of me in the original Aqua Teen Hunger Force Meatwad shirt I made for myself (Sorry I can't find the original shot. The shirt is light blue):http://photos11.flickr.com/13738287_8ced7b675e_m.jpg
Here's the one I had to make for my friend Jerica:http://photos4.flickr.com/5979004_ce0e7bca0a_m.jpg
After over a year of wear and dozens of washings, my Meatwad shirt is only starting to crack now. I used the Avery dark t-shirt transfers on a cotton/spandex shirt.
This Morrissey shirt I made is from a magazine cover and I had to Photoshop out all the text. I think it worked out well:http://photos3.flickr.com/2913647_48ed8048cf_m.jpg
I make iron-ons for probably the same reason a lot of you do - because you can't find what you really want on a t-shirt in the stores!
I want to start getting a little more artsy with my designs. I'm so impressed by everyone on here!
