Printing T-shirt Logos?

Postby Rikhardr » Tue Sep 01, 2015 6:09 am

Where is a source of how to make transfers for T-shirts?

My grandson, JD, told his boss about my ability to do T-shirts and

I have an order that will pay off my new Cricut!

What exactly are you thinking of for t-shirts?

There are several ways to create t-shirts, one method I really like is using HTV or heat transfer vinyl.
You just cut your image using your Explore or Cricut and iron it onto your t-shirt.

Let me know any specific questions and I will try and help you out.
How many do you have to make? What is your timeline?

I believe that it will be HTV.

A small two word company name on the front left pocket area

and a larger same two words centered on the back.

HTV would be your best bet. I just got an email this morning from Vinyl Outlet for 20% your entire order.
They are super fast with their shipping.
Here is a link to their website
http://vinyloutlet.net/
The discount code is FALL.

I have also ordered from Expression Vinyl and CraftVinyl.

I always wash the shirts first and had not had a problem with the vinyl coming off.
I have heard others so not wash first so that is up to you.
Make sure when you iron it on you are ironing on a hard surface, like floor or wooden table
or something and press very very hard and keep the iron on each spot for 20-40 seconds.
How many do you have to make?

Boy are you going to like the October Frankenstein challenge :!: ;)

Wow that's great Rikhard. You will love working with HTV, it is addicting.
If you order from Vinyl Outlet you will probably have your order by Saturday

Here is what I will be making.

How much space should I leave between each two logo set?

The words will be deleted before cutting as they are per order info for the customer.

I will be making 31 sets and not sure how much vinyl I will need?

I don't do this HTV stuff.. so I may be way off the mark here.. but if it comes in regular 8.5x11 I would think the smaller one you could cut 2 wide and 10 deep.. so 20 per page?? and the larger one 5 per page. Just something to consider.. you may have some extra space along the sides..so think ahead to stuff you might want for your own use and you can always throw small designs into those spaces so you can make the most of the material when cutting. :).. and of course you will need some extras for incidentals and practise :)

Yes that is the correct stuff. I have ordered from Nick many times, he is great
and has the best prices.

Do you have a 12 x 24 mat so you can place the whole sheet of vinyl on there? Otherwise you can cut the
piece of vinyl in half and put it on a regular mat.

Did you know that Design Space has a "canvas" where you can set a t-shirt so you can see
placement and sizes. I love using the canvas. Will try and take a screen shot and post it

Here is a screen shot of the DS screen with a t-shirt canvas set up.
After you chose a canvas on the right hand side you can pick type
and size. HTH

OK, I found the canvas T-shirt patterns!

Since I'm making so many and have not done this before

do I leave the vinyl together after cutting or should I peel off around the letters

before delivering them to where my grandson works?

Are you just cutting out the letters and not applying them to the shirts?

I would cut out each phrase as many times are you can on your vinyl
leaving enough space in between each phrase so they can be cut apart from the
others to be applied.
I would weed out the extra vinyl and leave the backing sheet (clear part unless sisser is white) because that
is what you iron on top of to apply. Hope this makes sense.

Plus I always cut one of of cheap paper first just to check sizing and how it
looks before I actually cut it out of vinyl so I don't waste any.

And don't forget to MIRROR your images because you are actually cutting it from the back
and flip it to apply.

If you have any more questions just let me know
