Howdy folks,

I was doing a transfer for my husband when it came to my attention that our evil printer (stupid HP6122) doesn't honor the margins that are listed on the page--it starts printing BEFORE it's supposed to.  I was down to my last two pieces of light transfer paper (HP transfer--I've used successfully before with my old Epson printer), one of which was bent at one end and had something on it at the other.  Because the middle of the second sheet was fine and I didn't want to spring for another package of paper, I figured I could cut the image into two pieces, because there is a logo at the top and Chinese characters at the bottom.  Of course, my original instructions are gone, so I trimmed the rounded edge of my top portion right up against the edge of the image, not leaving the recommended quarter inch between.  As I was ironing, I noticed a slight bleeding of the image on that cut edge.  I don't want the image to bleed in the wash.  Are there any products or methods I can use to seal the image back up without damaging the original transfer underneath?  Thanks.

Pieces,

Joanne

Wow.  No ideas?  OK, does anyone know what product people use to preserve autographs on T-shirts?  Maybe that would work...I think it's a spray?

Pieces,

Joanne
