I recently bought a hardcover bound sketchbook to use as my journal. It is covered in a red fabric.
Is it possible to use an iron-on transfer to print an image onto the cover of the book?
Should I use a dark iron-on transfer because the book is a crimson red?
Thanks Smiley

I don't see why not. It's just the same as doing it on a t-shirt, or such.

I'd definitely do a darker colour. Black would be best.

i've done this before, on dark-colored books.  i used the opaque type of transfers made for dark fabrics, and they turned out great just following the normal directions.  i guess it depends on what type of look you are going for...
