  1. Hi. I have been looking for a Cricut machine for transfers. The cricut joy looks ok but is it able to do the same as your cricut video ?

  2. I don’t have printer..if I printed the paper from somewhere and then after some hour I use it in the heat press machine, will it be printed successfully?
    thanks in advance

  3. Im.tryig to start my business i got my press i got an inkjet printer when I print an image the colour looks fine but when I press the image to the shirt it looks darker than what the original print is there something I’m doing wrong or what can I do to make it look more colorful?

    1. @juan paredes Thank you. What temperature, pressure and duration are you using with your heat press? It will be super helpful to see an image of the outcome. If you can get in touch via the channel from which you bought, that would be great. Thanks again

    1. Hi , the transfer works best on cotton fabrics. Other fabrics may work, but you need to ensure that the heat from the transfer process won’t damage the fabric. Thanks for the comment!

  4. Is there any way you can please tell me a list of materials I would most likely need to start a tshirt business of my own?

    1. Hi, you only need a printer, iron or heat press, transfer paper and plain t-shirts. Thanks for the comment!

  5. If i wanted to make raised letters on the shirt, like you can feel them when you rub your fingers across, how would i do that?

  6. Just a question, Im also using the PPD paper for printing, when I put it face down on the shirt with the grid facing up, I clamp down for 20 seconds, when I peel the grid off, the image still stuck on the paper? Then I left it on for another 20 seconds and peeled off the paper, it was completely white, as if the image had been heat pressed down onto the shirt and the back of the image is showing blank white like when you peel off a sticker?

    1. @Unphogivable Correct! That is at least the case with the PPD Transfer Paper. Other makes may have different colour terminology. Thanks for the comment!

    2. @Unphogivable Hi, red grid is light transfer paper. Are you use you bought the PPD Transfer Paper? Our dark transfer paper has blue grid/logo on the back. Our instructions say 13 second not 20 second. Please get in touch via the channel from which you bought the PPD Transfer Paper so we can check what product was ordered and what was supplied.

    3. @Photo Paper Direct Yes I use the dark transfer, it says on the front page, the paper with red grid at the back is for dark fabric, it also says the temp at 380f for 20 secs, i also did 380f for 13 secs, but i had to peel off the print from the grid and put the image face up on the fabric with the wax paper on top for 13 secs and it worked, the way you showed in this video doesnt work for me

    4. Hi, make sure you are using the correct transfer paper type. Light transfer for white fabrics and dark transfer for all other fabrics. Also, 20sec is not the correct setting. Use 13 seconds at 190c/375f with high pressure so the clamp is very hard to shut. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, the image will feel a bit stiff but after the first wash it will feel smooth and part of the fabric. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, if you followed the washing instructions and the t-shirt still cracked, it is likely due to the transfer process in terms of insufficient pressure, duration or heat. Thanks for the comment!

  7. i must ask for curiosity, what happen when you inverse things, put light paper over dark and vice versa ? i dont want to try this ahahah
    very nice product btw, i use it for my very all merch <3

  8. This Is Literally . The Easiest Thing In The World To Do , Like It’s Unbelievable. I’m Starting Mines Now & The Money Is Flowing

  9. Thank you all. I have been searching this up since I had one. I’m am a 12 year old African American and I have started selling shirts and now make 1000$ every week. Thank you. You helped me and my family a lot.

  10. hello , i have been considering a business where i print shirts using a shirt press , and so far i did not know that it required a printer with it (i thought it was a printer in itself ) i just wonder what kind f printer and ink and paper to use or what is best for lasting results , and if the quality of the shirt fabric matters to the longevity of the paint job , i would appreciate if you answer this , and i appreciate any additional advice you might give, i want to do quality over quantity and establish a good name for myself , especially in my country where people don’t really get this kind of work

    1. Hi, the PPD Transfer Papers suit any Inkjet printer using any inks. For best results, use 100% cotton fabric. Thanks for the comment!

  11. So im looking into doing this commercially.
    My question is:
    How do i mass produce the templates?
    Thanks for any reply.

    1. Hi, the PPD Transfer Paper is suitable with a domestic iron (over 1500w) or an heat press. The pack comes with instructions for both. Thanks for the comment!

  12. Yea but how long do they last cuz ive buy some shirts from places and they start to crack and peel really quik

    1. Hi, the transfer should last for 20 washes. If the transfer peeled before, it is likely that not enough heat or pressure was applied during the transfer process. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, Absolutely. As long as the fabric won’t damage from the heat you can transfer onto shirts, pillowcases, aprons etc etc. Thanks for the comment!

  13. I would have liked to know how to make the transfer in the first place… unless you have made a video showing this.

    1. Hi, yes. As long as the fabric won’t damage from the heat, you can transfer onto shirts, pillowcases, aprons etc etc. Thanks for the comment!

  14. Hi, right after watching your video I subscribed your channel the way you teach and explain its amazing 👍
    I want to ask about the sticker which you place on shirt. From where I can get pasting stickers or I can design by myself and print !!! Please let me know I’ll be very thankful to you.

    Thanks,
    AQ

    1. Hi, to transfer your design onto fabric, you need Fabric Transfer Paper. The video description contains direct links to the PPD Transfer Papers. Thanks for the comment!

    1. @Living with laughter Thanks. Can you get in touch via the channel from which you bought the PPD Transfer Paper from and include a photo of the transfer not peeling? This will help us to provide a solution. Thank you.

    2. @Photo Paper Direct i dont think its due to less heat either its of overheat or maybe i m not giving sufficient time to cool what do u think??

  16. what ink do you use to transfer it onto the paper and whats the best paper to use, like do you need a certain type of printer of can you just use a regular one

    1. @Naomi Pancake hi, the PPD Transfer Paper suits any Inkjet printer. As long as the printer uses inkjet inks, any brand or model is suitable. Thanks for the comment!

    2. Hi, in this video we’ve used the PPD Transfer Paper. It works with any Inkjet printer using normal inks. Thanks for the comment!

    1. @glennclash You’ll be very happy with the PPD Transfer Paper. If anything doesn’t work, we’re here for help. Thanks for the comment!

  17. A trader with so much ambitious goal towards his clients, a man with love and care for others.You’re magnificent when it comes to investments,contact this great Manager at instagram @Charles_forex09..

    1. Hi, to transfer onto fabrics, you will need transfer paper, printer, an iron or heat press. Thanks for the comment!

  18. Thank you ~ this was super helpful! How many times are you able to reuse that silicone sheet? Does it protect the transferred image better, when used? 🤔

    1. Hi, the silicon sheet is reusable, there’s no limit on the number of times you can use it. It helps make the transfer more durable. Thanks for the comment!

    1. @ellisgrren Hi, if you’re transferring using an A3 size paper, you’ll need an A4 printer. Thanks for the comment!

    2. @Photo Paper Direct thank you, so a3 is a size ? also would i need a printer to send the design for shirt pressing ?

    1. Hi, the PPD Transfer Paper works with any make and model of Inkjet printers using any inks. Thanks for the comment!

    1. hi, yes, you can transfer onto any fabric provided the fabric won’t damage rom the heat. This includes shirts, grow bags, pillow cases etc. Thanks for the comment!

  19. How does the transfer paper work? Do you put it on a printer and add an image to it and then u can add it to the shirt? Im a little confused

  20. God bless you all. The Gospel is 1Corinthians 15:1-4, Ephesian 1:13, 2:8-9, Roman 3:23-26. Without blood there is no life and without Jesus BLOOD no eternal life. Faith in Jesus BLOOD and his finished work at cross.

  21. I want to create my own design and print. I do not know what kind of paper we use and printer for the paper. Can anybody help me ?

  22. What material T-shirt is best to use ? Watch some other channel, some say 100% cotton while some said 100% polyester ? A little confused.

    1. Hi, 100% cotton is the most suitable fabric with the PPD Transfer Paper. Best long term results. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, you’ll need: Transfer Paper, an Iron or Heat Press and an Inkjet printer. Thanks for the comment!

    1. You can find images on Etsy for a small fee. You have to get permission from the original artist to use their designs for commercial purposes. Hope this helps.

  24. I’ve had to put my business on hold sadly because my iron isn’t getting the full job done. This is definitely the machine I need and FAST! Thanks so much for the video

    1. Hi, the PPD Transfer Paper works with any Inkjet printers using any ink. The settings for printing transfer paper are medium or low quality, so the cheapest Inkjet printer will perform the same as the most expensive one. Thanks for the comment!

    1. good morning… I am selling an 8 In one 15′ by 15′ heat press along with a silhouette camio all together for 1000 us dollars… with these together u can start printing the moment you buy them

    1. hi, absolutely. The only thing to pay attention to is the fabric. The fabric must be ironed at max temp without damaging. As long as the fabric is suitable (for example Cotton, Viscose, Silk, Linen), the process will work the same as if it was a t-shirt. Thanks for the comment!

  25. Hi. We got the paper from PPD, we use a heat press, and… we are not happy with the way t-shirts look after transfer. If you stretch it, it doesn’t look good at all. After washed at 30 degrees, the t-shirt looks horrible. Do I miss something?

    1. Hi, I am sorry to hear that. Please send us a photo via the channel you bought it from. Having looked at the photo, we will be able to help further. Thanks for the comment!

  26. This is one of the most helpful heat press videos I have seen. Thanks, bro! Can’t wait to make some shirts!!

    1. Hi, the transfer will last for around 20 washes, even longer if you re-appeal the silicon sheet part of the video from time to time. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, you print the image onto transfer paper using any Inkjet printer and transfer the design onto the fabric using an iron. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, sorry, we only sell the transfer paper. Check Amazon and eBay for heat press machines. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, the PPD transfer paper range works with any make and model of Inkjet printers. As long as the printer is an inkjet one, the process will work. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, the PPD transfer paper range works with any Inkjet printers incl HP OfficeJet Pro 8710. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, in the video, we’re using the PPD transfer paper. The design was made using MS Word. Thanks for the comment!

  27. i have just used this product, ppd light transfer paper, followed application instructions, wash the garment the next day and its starting to crack what im i doing wrong?. the only thing that was not done was to turn the garment inside out .
    Please advise

    1. @Darren Wilkes Thank you. Make sure you are using the press for 12 seconds only at 190 degrees Celsius / 375F and high pressure. If you have, experiment with 13/14 seconds in case the temperature control on the heat press is slightly off.

    2. Hi, turning the garment inside out is important for the first wash. Beyond this, it is likely that not enough pressure or heat was used during the transfer process. Are you using a heat press or an iron? Thanks for the comment!

    1. Yes. The PPD transfer paper works with an iron and heat press. The pack includes instructions for both. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, the PPD transfer paper suits any Inkjet printer using any inks. As long as the printer is an inkjet one, the process will work. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, place it central using your vision as best you can.When the t-shirt is worn, it is never centred and always moves around. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, the PPD Transfer Paper works with any make / model of Inkjet printers incl the Canon PIXMA TS8320. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Photo Paper Direct no. I was saying that you indeed answered the questions I had about using silicone paper even let me know I had some in my transfer paper box. Came in handy twice actually. Thank you so much. Was able to print my first thing ever after having the machine for over a month. Thank you thank you and I will check out that video. Can’t ever learn enough

    2. Hi, thank you 🙏 when to use the silicon and for how long will depend on whether you’re using the light or dark transfer paper. If you have a few min, take a look at this video which shows the process for the light and dark. It will help clear-up your questions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykb7I-pJDcI Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, we produce and sell our own brand called PPD Transfer Paper. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks for the comment!

  28. Now this machine cost $200. And I am interesting to purchase one to make my own art.

    But I wonder to ask: how to print full imagine on whole textile, what machine they are using?, where shall I find

    1. Hi, no app required. Prepare your design using image software or even MS word. Print on the transfer paper and iron/heatpress. That simple. Thanks for the comment!

  29. Hi, I’ve recently bought a T-shirt press and i’m having a little trouble, my transfer paper keeps sticking to the heated pad? could you tell me why this is happening and how to prevent it? Thank you!

    1. Hi Milli, make sure to put it with the active coating (the side that has to go onto the shirt) in the correct way up so the glue side ins’t on the heat pad. Let us know how you get on. Thanks for the comment!

  30. 1) How long or how many washes this heat press print lasts?
    2) Can I print the transfer paper in an ink tank printer like the Canon 2000 model?
    3) Approximately how much does it cost to print a t-shirt if you calculate the cost of heat press, transfer paper, printer ink, and power consumption as well as time to design (excluding the purchase cost of the t-shirt itself)?

    1. Hi,

      1. The transfer will last 20 to 25 washes, just follow the washing instructions in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mV59PsMIHms
      2. The PPD range of transfer paper works with any Inkjet printer using any inks. That includes Canon 2000 model.
      3. Cost will vary depending on the t-shirt cost and transfer paper cost. There isn’t a ballpark figure.

      Thanks for the comment!

    1. Why do idiots like you think the word “scheme” is bad? Read a dictionary dude. Scheme and schemer are two different things

    1. Hi, i this video we’ve used the PPD Transfer Paper. There’s the PPD light transfer paper for white fabrics and PPD dark transfer paper for dark and colour fabrics. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, there are two types of -t-shirt transfer papers, light or dark. Light suits only white colours, while dark suits all colours incl white, dark, bright etc. I hope this helps. Thanks for the comment!

    1. @Photo Paper Direct Fast answer thank you.
      So, what’s the best to print on polyester for you?

      Thank’s for your videos

    2. Hi, not really suitable for polyester. Perfect for cotton, linen and other fabrics that can be ironed at maximum temperature. Polyester recommended ironing temp is 148c/300f which isn’t hot enough for the process to yield good long term durability. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, you create the design using image software or even a word processor, feed the transfer and print. Thanks for the comment!

  31. Yo, what’s up y’all! Check my Clothing Brand on facebook. Hierarchy Co. The one with the triangle Logo! I was just starting and find out how it goes. Your help will be much appreciated, designs are coming out soon!

    1. Hi, the PPD transfer used here works with any regular inkjet printer using any inks. Thanks for the comment!

  32. Hi, first off I wan’t to say that this video was very informative and good, but I have some questions, what is the heat transfer foil you used in the video and is there any specific temperatur on the machine or do you have to set it up manually?

    1. Hi, we use the PPD transfer paper in this video. Are you going to use a heat press or an iron? Thanks for the kind words!

  33. Hi. How about the costs for printing each t-shirt? How much would it cost to print and press it for one t-shirt for example: including the papers, ink and materials used for a single t-shirt. Thanks

    1. Hi, you can prepare the design using image software, or even word editing software like MS Word. Thanks for the comment!

  34. What kind of printer do I need to print pictures for shirts and what all is needed I already have a heat press thank you!

    1. @Quinderella Diane hi, we sell the PPD Transfer Paper which I of course recommend 😉 There are however other good brands as well. Thanks for the comment!

    2. Photo Paper Direct ok thanks and can you use a regular heat press to place picture on shirts? Is there a brand that you prefer I want to print on both white and colorful shirts thanks 😊

    3. hi, the PPD range of transfer paper works with any make or model of Inkjet printers using any ink. Thanks for the comment!

    1. hi, the PPD range of transfer paper works with any inkjet printer using any inks. We’ve used a normal inkjet printer here with normal inks. Thanks for the comment!

  35. Hey, great video. I bought a heat press machine, and used it for a couple of days just for four cotton t-shirts. Using a inkjet printer and transfer paper. I have a problem, the smell while I use the press is unbearable, sort of toxic. Is it “normal”? Is it supposed to be for the first days of use? Has anyone the same problem? Thank you.

    1. hi, you’re not trimming the silicon sheets. Trim the transfer paper, leave the silicon sheets as is. Thanks for the comment!

  36. sir, gustong gusto q iton nigosyo dto ako sa abudhabi mai plano ako mag for good poidi mo ba ako matulongan mag aral ako ng personal kahit mag vayad ako sayomatoto lang ako at bibili ng mga machine pra mag karoon ako buiness sa amim sa probinya kc wala itong buiness sa, kaya iton an gusto q pls, help

    1. hi, you can use any word processing software like MS Word. You’ll have an option to edit the images, text and even to mirror the text if required. Thanks for the comment!

  37. *This product works GREAT!💬>**share4.photo/sHeatPress?19つt **   I was a little hesitant at first because it is my first heat press. It is easy to use and instructions are very thorough. I would buy some teflon sheets to put on top of whatever you are heat pressing. If you use it without any cloth or teflon your product will mess up. Anywho I highly recommend this product! If you are gifting it to someone who wants to start up this hobby it would be a GREAT heat press to give to them.*

    1. @The Dar lee hi, the PPD transfer paper works with any Inkjet printer using normal inks. Thanks for the comment!

  39. What if I was to print an image of someone famous and put it on a t-shirt, were do I stand with copy right laws? Or would I be ok?

    1. gerald edwards I think you would actually get in trouble tbh, cause for example, imma go print a picture of you on a shirt without you knowing. I would have to get permission from you to do it, and I’m guessing it’s the same thing with celebrities. Contact their agents maybe, to gain permission

  40. Okay so ive noticed none of these videos really explain what you are using the transfer paper with…is a regular printed image that gets tranfered or specific printed images kuz im not tryna ruin w shirt if i dont have to…PLEASE HELP…if yall can thank you

    1. @lauradavid photoshop or Adobe illustrator to create the images. I believe that there is a way to screenshot on your iPhone, airdrop to a Mac and digitize it from there! I’m not that savvy with that, so I use fiverr or Etsy.

    2. @Loren Edwards thank you for the advice! I didn’t realize you could just use an ink jet printer to get these done on transfer paper. If I was creating my own images do you have any suggestions on how to get them on a computer without scanning?

    3. Hi, if you’re not savvy with photoshop, illustrator or procreate, you can make slogans in a word document and mirror the image for printing. If you are looking for specific images, try Etsy or fiverr to have them designed. Etsy has a sea of shops where you can purchase a digital download or have them shipped to you. Prior to purchasing the images, I encourage you to see what the specific requirements are from the original creator. Make sure that you can use them for commercial use. From there, you use your computer and a home printer to print. For white and light shirts you want to mirror the images. Google or YouTube can provide tutorials for that, if needed. When printing make sure that you don’t have the setting to “best” or set on “photo printing” because the ink will bleed. Also, you can go on jiffy shirts. Com and purchase a few white shirts for under $2.00 each to practice. If you have any additional questions, please ask.

    1. Hi, you can. The PPD transfer paper suits heat press or an iron. It is perfect with cottons. The pack comes with detailed instructions for both. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, you can transfer onto many items. As long as the fabric won’t damage/melt from the heat, the process will work the same. Thanks for the comment!

    1. You may find this valuable. List of supplies to get started.. thedivaspeak.ck.page/t-shirt-biz-supply-list

    1. hi, if you are using the light transfer paper and you have text in the design, you need to mirror the image before printing. Thank you for the comment!

  41. can you get the same affect from a corgi trouser press? I need to know off someone, I feel a might have to refund it.

  42. So for tshirt business you need, Computer, printer, lots of ink, transfer paper, heat press. So you’re looking at over $1,000 for necessary components.. some creativity and then people that want your tshirts…

  43. How is the feel of the design on the shirt? I’ve bought a few in the past and they felt very paper like and was a big turn away, I’m hoping the feel is similar to the shirt itself and doesn’t feel cheap

    1. try neenah jet pro soft stretch paper. I use it for my business and the transfer is so soft, especially after you use parchment paper to remove that harsh paper-like feeling

    1. Hi, the silicon paper is highly recommended for use with light transfer paper (help embed the design deep into the fabric) and required when using dark transfer paper. Thanks for the comment!

  44. We have great machine can print on shirts very easy and only sale 2200USD
    whatsapp me if you are interested in it 008615627868872

  45. How do you make a design to go on the shirt? Is the transfer paper a special material? Did you make that part yourself?

    1. hi, the transfer paper contains a release layer that will transfer the design onto the fabric. Follow the links in the description to purchase the transfer paper. Thanks for the comment!

  46. Awesome, really nice machine, I want to buy a printer machine from Bangladesh, no matter how many dollars us,,Thank You!

    1. Hi, if the design wrinkled after the first wash, there was a problem during the transfer application. Lack of heat, duration or pressure will cause that. Try applying more pressure and ensure sufficient heat/duration next time to ensure the design is deeply embedded into the fabric. Thanks for the comment.

  47. How big is the base? The square? And what size is preferable? I don’t want something too small… I found a machine 38cm by 38cm, is that big enough?

  48. Is there a guide to how many seconds for each type of material and to know how much pressure to have on it? I did my first shirt and part of the image didn’t transfer. I not sure if I had too much pressure or did it too long..I used light transfer paper 100% cotton tee at 350 degrees for 20 seconds (what I found recommended on google)

    1. @Josh m. Yes, any fabric provided it is the PPD transfer paper. 350f which is about 175c isn’t hot enough. Change to 375f for 13 seconds and high pressure. Heat press can vary in its accuracy (depending on the quality) so if the heat press is new to you, some trial and error might be required, but from what you told us, it wasn’t hot enough. I hope this helps!

    2. Hi, Apply the press for 13 seconds only at 190 degrees Celsius and high pressure. This setting is used for both the light and dark transfer paper types. Thanks for the comment!

    1. hi, that will depend on the size of the transfer (a3/11×17 or a4/8.5×11). If you opt for the bigger size heat press you’ll have more options. Thanks for the comment.

    1. hi, the manufacturer doesn’t claim that this transfer works on wood, however we have a number of customers who use this transfer on wood. Thanks for the comment.

  49. Where do the transfers come from that you heat press onto the tee shirt…..? They just “appear” in your video with no explanation – do you need special equipment to produce these ?

  50. You didnt stat from the start of the process which should have included where and how to get a transfer paper and the design that you want or even create your own custom made print???

  51. Great video, informative.
    QQ…How would I go about printing a white logo or white lettering on a dark t-shirt? 🤔
    Please get back to me when possible please.
    Thanks. 😊

    1. Lee Caulton u would have to make the background a dark color and then type out what u want in white…if that makes sense

    1. Hi, the PPD transfer papers suit all Inkjet printers using normal inks. In this video we have used a Canon printer, however you can use any Inkjet printer. Thanks for the comment.

    1. Hi, it’s call T-Shirt Transfer Paper. It comes in light or dark options. Light t-shirt transfer paper suits only white fabrics, dark t-shirt transfer paper suits all colours (incl white). Thanks for the comment.

    1. Andres pena i can help im starting my own too but one thing forsure is, it is going to be pricey. First things first have a goal on what you want to make preparation is key because if you dont know what to make then youll get stuck once you have all the equipment. One thing you need is a laptop i got a gaming laptop for 730$ it has good graphics and will work perfect for designing. Then look into heat pressing machines or you can do it old school if you dont have much money by using flat surface and an iron. Then you will need a printer for printing out images you want to put on shirts if you want to be very professional its prefered you get or buy a good program where you can edit a picture and let your mind be free and ofcourse fabric transfer paper. And just rewatch this video and you should be good to go think i covered most of it if i missed something just lmk or if you don understand and ill try my best to help

    1. @Photo Paper Direct thanks for your response!

      I’m going to sell Tshirts but i’m afraid that if people will iron their shirt after owning it for a while, they will destroy the logo.

      So if I use heatpress on the silicone paper it will make it so that it wont melt/ leak colors on the iron?

      Thanks so much!!

    2. Hi, when ironing the t-shirt after the transfer, simply turn the t-shirt inside out. Ironing again onto the exposed transfer will damage it, unless the silicon sheet is used. Thanks for the comment.

    1. @Ilene Gonzalez hi, you’ll get the best results when using 100% cotton. The fabric of choice can include a wide range of garments such as Cotton, Viscose, Polyester, Silk etc as long as they do not melt under a hot Iron. Thanks for the comment!

    2. Thanks for the reply! I do plan to buy them hopefully today or tomorrow but can I use those transfer papers on a hooded sweatshirt 50% preshrunk cotton/ 50% polyester?

    3. Hi, the PPD transfer paper range featured here is suitable with any make of Inkjet printer using normal everyday inks. Thanks for the comment.

  52. Oh! Hmmm when will i also get this machine to start my own business. All my life as a young guy, my desire is to get this machine. But for so many years now, i have still not been able to get money for this. God help me.

    1. hi, yes, you can. The fabric of choice can include a wide range of garments such as Cotton, Viscose, Polyester, Silk etc as long as they do not melt under a hot Iron. Thanks for the comment.

    1. Hi, you can use any Inkjet printer HP, Canon, Epson, Lexmark, Brother, Kodak and others, using normal, Dye or Pigment based inks. Thanks for the comment.

  53. Imagine how many tee shirts & how hard you would have to work at this to replace your day job. This is a ghey idea brah

  54. Are you printing Directly onto the transfer paper?? If so how?? I am printing my images then “Marrying” them onto the transfer paper for pressing. Can I bypass the “Marrying” step somehow and print directly onto the transfer paper??

    1. Hi, the PPD transfer paper suits any Inkjet printer. Feed the paper into the printer, follow the setup instructions and your design will print onto the transfer paper directly. Thanks for the comment.

    1. Hi, in the video we’ve used the PPD Transfer Paper and it is suitable with normal inkjet inks. Thanks for the comment.

  56. Mine doesn’t seem to work and still get unwanted paper on my designs when on tshirt. 🙁 it is annoying me and done everything.

    1. Hi, it isn’t. It is suitable for fabrics that can withstand the heat from the iron/heat press without damage. Leather will damage. Thanks for the comment.

  57. Hello sir my lemon live in bangladesh plz help me and your phone nabar plz so your mechanics price please telk me

  58. Is it wash proof? I just want to know if the printed area won’t be easily peel off during washing the clothes.

    1. July 3, 2019—-I’ve used the heat pressed transfer paper that I got from Walmart a few years ago, along with new t-shirts for this project. Had been downloading memes that I liked. Bottom line is the paper WILL peel away (usually in bits and pieces) after multiple washings. However, I still like doing it this way. If you want a PERMANENT way, you’ll have to go the route of actually using screens with multiple paint colors being used. Hope this helps.

  59. I have an HP Officejet Pro 6968 All-in-One Color Ink-jet. I want to start printing on t-shirts so I just bought transfer paper and a heat press. What setting do I set my printer to so that I can print on the transfer paper?

    1. hi, the PPD transfer paper needs to be set to paper type on your printer of Matt Paper, High Resolution Paper, Plain Paper or similar. Thanks for the comment.

  60. A very helpful video. I have 1 question Sir. What is the name of the brand of your transfer paper? Can you share to us please. Many thanks.

  61. Hello sir, thank you for this helpful video. I have a few questions, what is the paper that you used and the ink and how did you print them? Thank you

    1. Hi, the PPD range of transfer papers suit any make or model of Inkjet printers (using normal inks). As long as the printer is an Inkjet one, the process will work great. Printing instructions vary according to the printer make, but the pack comes with full printing instructions for each make. Thanks for the comment.

    1. Hi, in this video we’ve used 100% cotton. You can use other non-woven fabrics, as long as the fabric doesn’t melt from the heat. Thanks for the comment!

    1. Hi, we do it by eye and if it is slightly out, it is unlikely to be a problem as the T Shirt and Body on which it is worn move. Thanks for the comment!

  62. From where we can get images ? how to make own design if needed such as advertising, sports tees or name on tees ?

    1. Hi, you need to use t-shirt transfer paper. This paper contains a release coating that will transfer your design onto fabric. Thanks for the comment!
