Want to make custom t-shirts? I used iron-on transfer paper sheets for a surprisingly easy DIY customized shirt. Choose any t-shirt design & print it straight from your computer. See below for more details & check out the design software I use here →
Should you use dark or light iron-on transfers? I go over the differences between light & dark fabric transfers so you can choose the one that is best for your t-shirt design.

WHAT I USED:
– Dark & Light Iron-On Transfers BUNDLE –
– Iron-On Transfers For Dark Fabric –
– Iron-On Transfers For Light Fabric –
– Adobe Photoshop –
– Bella+Canvas Boxy Flowy Tee (8838) & Flowy High Neck Tank (8809)-
– Injet printer –
– Computer –
– Iron –
– Scissors/exacto knife –
– Pillowcase

STEPS FOR DARK IRON-ON TRANSFER PAPER:
1. Choose a t-shirt design and prep your graphic on a program such as Photoshop ( Add a stroke if your design is mainly white so it’s easier to cut out.
2. Print out your graphic on regular paper as a test. Once you have adjusted the size and design, print it out on the iron-on transfer paper.
3. Cut out the graphic from the transfer paper. If you leave any white it will be transferred as white so make sure your cut thoroughly.
4. Prep a surface to use by placing a pillowcase on it and ironing it until there are no wrinkles. Place the shirt on top and iron it as well. The surface should be hard like a table or hard flooring and make sure it is not heat sensitive.
5. Place the cut out transfer paper with the image facing up on the shirt in the desired area. Place the tissue paper that comes in the packet on top of the transfer sheet.
6. Iron on top of the tissue paper with pressure using back & forth motions & as every as possible. Be sure to have your iron set to no steam and remove all of the water. Continue ironing for the length of time according your the size of your graphic (full page- 2 mins, 1/2 page- 1 min, 1/4 page- 40 secs).
7. Finally, let the shirt cool for 2 minutes and then peel on the tissue off, leaving only the transferred image. & your custom print t-shirt is now complete.

STEPS FOR LIGHT IRON-ON TRANSFER PAPER:
1. Choose and prep your graphic on a program such as Photoshop ( You will need to reverse the image so that it is mirrored. Your printer may also have this setting.
2. Print out your graphic on regular paper as a test. Once you have adjusted the size and design, print it out on the iron-on transfer paper.
3. Cut out the image from the transfer paper. Anything that is left white will be transferred as clear.
4. Prep a surface to use by placing a pillowcase on it and ironing it until there are no wrinkles. Place the shirt on top and iron it as well. The surface should be hard like a table or hard flooring and make sure it is not heat sensitive.
5. Place the cut out transfer paper facing down on the shirt in the desired area.
6. Iron the transfer paper with pressure using back & forth motions. Be sure to have your iron set to no steam and remove all of the water. Continue ironing for the length of time according your the size of your graphic (full page- 3 mins, 1/2 page- 90 secs, 1/4 page- 45 secs).
7. Finally, let the shirt cool for 2 minutes and then peel on the transfer paper starting from an edge. & your t-shirt design is now done!

HOW TO WASH THE SHIRT:
– Wash inside out on a cold water cycle with low spin.
– Tumble dry on the lowest temperature possible or hang dry.
