I really do not like Iron-on Transfers, due to my mixed results with the paper used and methods. But, I got a new printer that came highly recommended to do t-shirt transfers well, and I decided to give it a shot this time around

Front and Back of tote has the image:


Inside (two pockets, one zippered and one open):


Zippered pocket:



The image is from an anime called Hunter x Hunter and I saw that it had nice beautiful greens within it, so I found this great green fabric that would go well with it. The lighter green just to give an offset and compliment the lining.   And I found this forest green webbing that was perfect.

I hope she likes it ^_^

Ok, what kind of printer is it?  The transfer looks great.  I normally hate transfers, too, but that looks nice.

the printer is Epson R260 - Photo Printer. IT comes with 6 ink cartridges. I was told that any Epson R series that uses the 78 series ink cartrdiges are good for PRINTING photos (on photo paper) and makes good use for T-shirt/IRON Transfer sheets. The ink doesn't fade (so good for archival use for photos) and on iron-ons.


The iron paper is from Hanes  (the tshirt company) but people swear by Avery brands iron-ons

That's fantastic!!! My daughter would adore it. Do you know where I could find good anime graphics or was it given to you? I want to try something special for the holidays for her. Thanks

That was supplied to me by the person who wanted it on the bag.

for good anime images? i just surf the net through google images.

however, its very rare you can find those that are at least 150 dpi (as they make the best prints).

I have used, and hate, the Avery brand iron-on paper.  I've never gotten sharp, clear results from it and after it is ironed-on, it looks like a cheap iron-on.  I'll have to try the Hanes. Thanks for the recommendation.

me too. i dont know why people swear by Avery. So far, four iron on prints by teh Hanes company iron-on transfers and not a single problem and clarity with it.

maybe since they are a tshirt company, they know what they are doing ^_^

Re:  Hanes transfer paper

Wow!  On the Hans2u.com product description for the Hanes T-shirtMaker Easy Peel Iron On Transfer paper:

Perfect transfers - every time!
If you goof up your design using Hanes T-ShirtMaker Transfer Paper on a first quality Hanes garment (underwear excluded), simply return the Hanes garment, transfer paper backing and receipt, and we will replace BOTH your garment and your transfer paper.


That's pretty amazing.
