Hey anyone know where I can find the transfer paper to press an image on a shirt? also if I can just use an Iron to press? I am looking for a B&M place actually not an online one as I want to be able to get it in the next couple of days.
P.S. I am not sure which page to put this in as it is not exactly loking for a deal, I just want to know where to get one fast...

I've screen-printed my own shirts before. It's really not that expensive, either.
You need a wooden frame, a clean screen and the ink/paint. I made the design in Illustrator and printed it onto a transparency. Using a floodlight, the photo-reactive goo that you put on the entire screen hardens where there is nothing printed on the transparency. So when you finally put paint onto the screen, the mask keeps the paint where it needs to go. Pretty simple.

You don't need a pack of 250. Any office supply store, Wal-mart, Target, et al will have packs of 5 or 10 sheets for $10 - $15. It's by the printer paper.

I just take mine to the screen printers. It costs about $20 for them to make the screen, and then they charge by the shirt.

It only works on light colored T-shirts! Dont try a dark one.
