I want to try creating an iron-on transfer and then making a t-shirt.  I have some very basic questions.  sorry.

1. will generic ink produce decent results? 

2. I want to make several of one design.  I suppose I will have to use one transfer per shirt, correct?

3. any advice for a newbie?

1. If by "generic ink" you mean ink from an inkjet printer, then yes, they produce decent results. There are only a few types of transfers out there for laser printers.

2. Yes- you must make a seperate transfer for each shirt.

3. Always wash shirts with transfers inside out.
Hand wash if you can.
The t-shirt transfers that are meant to be for dark colors work well on ALL color shirts, while the t-shirt transfers meant to be for light colors ONLY work well on light colors.
Don't cut out tiny little pieces with the transfers or else it'll peel easier than usual.
Don't use steam with your iron when you're ironing them on.
Generally just follow the package directions.

I think that's all I got for now.

one day i'll be wondering how
i got so old just wondering how
i never got cold wearing nothing in the snow
this is way beyond my remote concern
