And you just use any sort of paper?

It doesn't catch fire?

I'm really tempted to try it, but I'm pretty awful with an iron, and that terrifies me.

Embarassingly enough, I've burned almost two hundred dollars worth of dress shirts since I started doing my own ironing a year and a half ago.

Yup, I just used normal computer paper.  You should be fine as long as you keep the iron moving...hopefully.  I wish you good luck!   Wink

I just put it on the "cotton" setting.  Make sure the steam function is off...very important!  The directions on the pen say you should iron the design for about 30 seconds, but I like to iron for a minute or so just to make sure it's completely transferred.  Hope that helped!

All of them look great, but I especially love the Conan stencil. Could you post the pic or a link to it? I've been really wanting to make a Conzie shirt....

For my iron-ons I use printworks brand premium photo quality T-shirt transfers.  They cost about $10 for a pack of 5, but you can make several designs using one sheet of paper.  They work really good, but they recommend that your design doesn't have any sharp corners because they tend to stick up after they go through the wash.  That's what happened to my Conan shirt, but the other shirts I've made with rounded corners still look good after being through the washer/dryer.

Here's the Conan stencil that I made with Photoshop.  Feel free to use it, I trust you guys.  Wink
