Ink Jet Printer Transfer Paper
This is very neat stuff - I've done it and it works great! Anyone with a computer and access to an ink jet printer should try this. You just put the paper into the printer and print. Then iron onto cotton or cotton/poly fabric. After that, it's washable and permanent. It's great fun and unlimited in what you can create. T-shirts and clothing are obvious, but try picture quilts, or team uniforms and sports stuff like caps, wherever silk screening is not practical. And check out the Puzzles! Comes with complete instructions. Easy and fun - try it!
