This was when I turned all pro last year. Sort of.
After having lots of trouble with bad quality chain store transfer paper, I decided to do a better search (thanks to t-shirtforums.com for this, they’ve got a complete set of discussions on every t-shirt subject) and go for better paper. This tee was done with the 3G Jet-Opaque heat transfer paper I bought as sample from the closest (EU) and cheapest store I found online, yolö.
It was the first heat transfer I did on a dark color t-shirt, completely different process (thick kind of sticky paper, white background, no mirror image required etc). What I wanted to create was a reproduction of the famous Warp logo t-shirt (probably the best electronic record company worldwide, you can find the original tee at their online store, bleep.com, if you’d like to buy it. Was kind of expensive for me).
Used an iron again, no heat press or anything like that. Trying to cut a round shape with scissors didn’t work that well but it looks ok, no visible corner cuts (that’s probably why most people use a scalpel knife). Had some slight discoloration aswell after washing a couple of times, but that might also be because of my poor inkjet printer and inks not used for a long time or high washing temperature. If you have any suggestions on these, please do share!
