How to Print T shirt at Home using a Flat Iron

You can start your cool T-shirt design for free using either Canva or Placeit or even Envato Elelements. Alternatively, if you prefer using a stand alone software you can download to your computer without eating up your wallet, then, my favorite is Art Text Design for Mac, though you may still use softwares like WordArt or simply check out Envato Marketplace for some cool and affordable products that may be used for the same purpose. You may also use free print-on-demand websites like Teepublic to sell items with your artwork designs printed on them and make some cool money from that.

  1. What kind of paper you used to cover the printed paper before ironing it???😊
    cuz i thought it was just a bond paper and it doesn’t work.🤣

  2. can i use any kind of sublimation transfer paper? because there are iron on transfer paper. Will i be able to use those without “iron on” in their description thanks!

    1. You can use sublimation paper if your shirt is polyester, if your material is cotton, you should use light transfer paper(white shirt) and dark transfer paper for dark T-shirt’s, I assumed your printer has sublimation ink.

    1. Yes, but not all deskjets are convertible to pigment ink.. better to ask the ink supplier..if your deskjet is suitable…

    1. @Lam-ang Hi, I don’t think it will affect the quality of the image. it will only print what you have in your monitor. quality of the image will depend on the file itself and not in the printer.

  3. You said in your video, you’re using “sticker” paper. Is it the same as a transfer paper? Amazon has vinyl sticker paper and a transfer paper. Maybe that’s why some people failed because they used sticker paper.

  4. Pwede pong malaman anung tawag saa sticker na ginamit nyo po. Suuper galing nyo poo,salamat and Godbless po.

    1. Hi Johan, salamat po sa feedback… transfer paper po ang papel.. waterproof sya using pigment ink(water proof ink din.)

    1. hi Jundee, first, ordinary paper is not suitable as it is not waterproof. in this tutorial i am using a transfer paper(for tshirt) and pigment ink. sublimation is another story. you can also use this process but your tshirt should be polyester material because it will not work in cotton. In this process, your ink and paper should be suitable for sublimation.

    1. Hi Umar, it will be cleaned… hehehhe just kidding… bro if you will use the right ink and paper and if you will transfer it properly.. more or less 30-40 washes..

    1. hello po di po ako sure kung pede palitan ng pigment ink yung printer.. mas ok po kung mapacheck nyo muna sa supplier ng ink kung pede ung model ng printer nyo…

    1. Ahhhh salamatt po triny ko po yan kaninaa d po kasi nag work haha ordinary printer lang po kasi gamjt ko

  5. this is very helpful indeed! but I’m just wondering, what type of sticker paper did you use sir? glossy or matte? hope you read and answer this question hihi.

    1. Hi Lauren, I am using a transfer paper for tshirt. It is waterproof and I am also using a pigment ink.

    1. I’m using po Epson L805 with pigment ink(cotton), Epson L805 with sublimation ink naman for sublimation

  6. This is very helpful to start a small business for t-shirt. May I know what kind of paper you is that? Thank you

    1. Hi AJ, sublimation will only work for polyester material, if you’re using a sublimation paper, your ink should be sublimation as well and you cannot use this in cotton. Pigment ink works well in cotton.

    1. Hi Leverie, in this tutorial i used pigment ink. Pigment Ink and Sublimation ink are the 2 common types.

    1. Hi Rocio, i have a supplier nearby. I am in UAE. better if you could try to check some tshirt supplier to your place. cheaper but good quality.

  7. HINT*** if your printing on a white t-shirt no need for cutting around since the white paper won’t have an effect on the white shirt🙏🙏

    1. Yes, correct if you’re using a sublimation. I am using pigment ink that’s why i cut the edges.

    1. @Rodelyn Hernandez we cannot use ordinary printer because the ink will vanish if you will wash it… in this tutorial I used pigment ink.

  8. Is the transfer paper useful for drawing or it’s only for printing!!!
    I wanna put my draws on T shirts is that possible

    1. @JohnTed TV yes sir pede naman….just make sure na you will use the proper materials for paper and ink..

    2. Ok naman po kahit anong tshirt… basta pigment ink and transfer paper for pigment ang gamit…diinan lang and tagalan para mas kumapit sa tela

  9. Can i buy that transfer paper online or can u send me the link
    By the way i loved your video❤️

    1. Hi Baburao, thank you for your feedback, yes, you can buy paper online but you need to check first what type of ink you’re using. your printer should be using either sublimation ink or pigment ink.

    1. Hi Lhyn Bel, for ink, i used a pigment ink and a transfer paper for tshirt. We cannot use ordinary ink and paper…

    1. Maybe you can ask some shop to print it for you.. just make sure that they are using a pigment ink

    1. Hi King, in this one i am using a pigment printer, but you can also use a sublimation printer though it will not last that much compare to pigment…

    1. With proper wash it will last maybe by 40-50 washes… some people advise not to use washing machine so can prevent the print…

    1. may supplier malapit sa amin sir.. mas ok ung makapatanong ka ng supplier na malapit sa inyo para mas mura.. at makapag recommend sila ng mas magandang papel..

    1. hi maita, i am using a transfer paper suitable for tshirt printing. it is like a sticker and it will stick to your shirt once you applied heat on it.

  10. What is the minimum and what is the ideal type of printer for light transfer paper? Is it inkbased and what brand and model. Thank you.

    1. I am using epson L805, i think it is depend on your location.. like in uae, L805 is the cheaper one. I prefer to buy sublimation printer because you can also use this fir mug sublimation, mobile caee and many more.

    1. I am using a transmax brand since that is the only brand available here..transpaper will depend on your ink… what is your ink?

    1. paper and ink should be water proof… i am using a special paper(for tshirt) and ink. we cannot use ordinary paper and ordinary printer.

    1. It will not stick on the shirt..it is a special paper.. it will stick on the shirt once heated..

    1. yes, but check with your ink supplier if the model of your printer is ok to convert to sublimations… not all printers are capable.

    1. Light transfer paper po… nasa uae po ako may supplier dito. Try nyo po magcheck ng nearest supplier sa inyo.. para mas makamura..

    1. Hi, winielyn, what kind of sticker you’re using? Im using a light transfer paper. Did you iron your shirt for a couple seconds first before you put the sticker?

  11. Thanks for sharing this wonderful t-shirt prong.your tutorial so easy to too.God’s blessings to you more to come.thank you.good job.

    1. Hi Ice, as much as possible put some pressure.. and make sure that you’re doing it evenly… i am using a sticker for tshirt…

    1. Pede kaso mas matagal. Sublimation kasi may certain temp.. na requirements and ang iron di natin. Mamomonitor ang temp. So need natin tantyahin… and Pag cotton ang damit. Mabilis mag fade… mas ok kung polyester po…

    1. Hi Tali, if we’re using a pigment ink and light transfer paper, yes it is washable, maybe at least 30-50 wash. Some suggest not to use washing machine to make it last a bit longer…

  12. This is very helpful as I am planning to start home based biz. What Epson printer model, heat transfer paper and ink do you recommend. Appreciate your response.

    1. Hi Zaki, thank you for your feedback. I am using epson L805(more cheaper). i dont have specific brand, so i recommend that you visit the nearest sublimation printing supplier, for sure they will have different options. just like when i bought my printer, instead of buying the original ink I just bought a sublimation ink.

    1. You used a dark transfer paper for the design and then the light transfer paper to cover it before you iron? Am I right?

    1. Hi Ayesha, you cannot use photo paper, it is a special paper cold light transfer paper that fit tshirt printing…

  13. Sir i do by keeping the paper over the tshirt and then ironing but when I try to peel off the paper after ironing the paper that should peel off sometimes sticks with the print intself in the tshirt y it happens and what is solution

    1. @Dot360 Printing Tutorial i don’t use any paper i just keep thr transfer paper and iron over it

    1. in depends…maybe 30+ some people says it is much better not to put this in washing machine.

  14. Thank you for this video i sure learnt from it. Can i please ask what printer you use to print out the images. Thanks

    1. ​@Rob Bashar Hi Rob, i don’t think an ordinary laser printer will work, as it is not waterproof. I don’t think you can also convert this to Pigment ink(waterproof) since Laser printer use a toner.

  15. Thank you for this video, very helpful. My family is from Cuba and I am trying to start a printer t-shirt business (cotton and polyester) for them there. I would like to start sending to them designed transfer papers, they have a heat press, no computer yet. Please what kind of transfer (vinyl and sublimation) do you recommend buying with average quality (not very expensive) to start the business and where can I buy that? Thank you so much.

    1. Hi Nancy, it is my pleasure, i dont have specific brand, for me it is just the same, as long as it is for heat press, what matter for me is the process of transferring your design to your shirt. it should has the right combination of Heat and Time.

    1. Hi joshua, Normal ink will not last because it is normally a water base, much better if you will use pigment ink.

    1. @HUJJAT GAMING ZONE bro aside from using light transfer paper, you also have to use sublimation ink or pigment ink… you cannot use ordinary printer…

    2. @Dot360 Printing Tutorial from which shop can i get this paper and what should i ask the shop retailer to get this paper

    3. @Dot360 Printing Tutorial bro is it sublimation paper???can you give me a link of this paper from amazon or daraz app
