Fill in the blank: My personal T-shirt slogan would be ________

By sMoRTy71 ·
Recently, I bought a Nintendo t-shirt that had a picture of a Gamecube controller with the text "I have control issues" above it.

I bought it for 2 reasons:
1. I love Nintendo
2. Well... I have control issues (there, I said it)

It made me think how much easier things would be if people just put some clues to their personality on a t-shirt.

So, if you could put a slogan on a T-shirt that gave a glimpse into your personality, what would it say?

Canon used to have a transfer material

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Hey raspark

That you could run through an Ink Jet printer and then iron on the transfer to a T Shirt or whatever. I don't know if they still have it and I've never used it so I don't know how well it worked but it looked like a good idea at the time when I originally saw it.

Though you would most likely needed to have cleaned out the printer after you ran any of this stuff through it.

I've been running a t-shirt business, with tie-dye and/or printed transfers. Text is a little trickier cos it tends to curl at the edges after a couple of washes. Also bright colours and whites seem to be a little no-no and handwashing better than machine.
A picture's worth a thousand words anyway.

Transfer material

There are two ways I know to transfer an image. There are a variety of heat transfer papers for both dark and light colours on the market. I find them most easily in any good craft store. Oddly enough, it is the same as printing to paper- no additional printer cleaning required.

You can also print to photo paper, let dry completely- I recommend at least overnight. Then use photo transfer medium to transfer to cloth.

The catch is that you have to remember to flip your text as it will tranfer reversed.

I used the transfer paper for my supporter tee shirts this year. Next year, I will have them done by a professional- they'll wear better.

Transfer material

by UnsaneT3ch In reply to Transfer material

I have the leisure of owning my own heat press, but you can get good transfers printing done at Kinko's. Find a supplier of transfer paper for color copiers (local paper supplier). The Xerox and Canon color copiers give the best color. Plus they can output 11" x 17". Also using a 50%/50% shirt produces the best image and lasting transfer. (100% cotton gets fuzzy and the image fades rather quickly)

Many Years Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Transfer material

I used to fix sewing machines to work my way through the Undergrad course at Uni.

I'm still one of the few certified to fix those multi head Embroidery Machines though I'll admit that even the thought of one of those sends a cold shiver down my back.

I was recently hit with one where the Microprocessor Board had failed just a little 16 head one but you should have seen me heading for the hills as fast as my little Ducati could carry me & that's very fast.

Now I only fix SHMBO sewing machine and overylocker and when my sister hits me when I can't escape. She got it down pat now as she sends in her kids who think that I can fix anything to ask me well actually tell me to fix something for their mother.

I don't know how their father takes this as anytime that anything breaks at their house they are all screaming out Quick Call Uncle Colin to fix it!

But having the motif properly embroiled will be much better and last far longer but you'll need to find someone who knows what they are doing as I've seen way too many instances where the right backing material wasn't used on the inside of the T Shirt and the entire shirt was ruined. If you can find one of those terrible people who inhabit Craft Shops they'll be able to do it free hand in a hoop which will not stretch or pucker the T Shirt. But as I now avoid Craft Shops like the plague here I'm safe from getting caught doing work I hate.

I don't think there is a single tech on the face of the planet that can not relate to that one.
