Default ? For those that print your own ribbon

I love the concept of this. I bought a file off etsy and got some inkjet printer iron on paper. I followed the instructions specifically and it just didnt turn out. Part of the image transferred to the ribbon but some did not. The pack of paper was the cheapest at Joanns (6.99 for 3 sheets). I didn;t really think this was a great price. They had some that was 12.99 for 3 sheets. Have you found that this is something that you get what you pay for? I'm wondering if this whole printing my own ribbon is going to work at all and if so, will it even be worth it....

I offer printed ribbon on my website. I don't use cheap paper. If you ever want any printed sheets, let me know. I can get them printed and sent to you. I use top of the line paper.

I use the brand Avery...I get the transparent sheets and I last bought it at office depot I think. Walmart has it online but not in stores. Its the red package. Its not cheap but it turns out better then several cheaper brands I have used. I love PYOR. I use it alot on m2mg and local High school sports bows. Hope this helped.

I have some paper that I bought at HL. I can't remember the price. I have ordered a new printer so I can get a great quality - we needed a new one anyway. I have bought several images. I can't wait to try it. I hope it works!! Any tips!?!?

What a great idea! Ironic that I just bought a new printer today. Now I can't wait to give this a try. I was hoping to make my own labels to go in my Kufi's and tutus but now I'm going to try ribbon too.

AM- I'm working on the popsicle one that I bought from you the other day. As I said, my first attempt did not go well. I'm trying again with a different brand of transfer paper right now. If all goes well, I'll be back for more!

I use
avery I purchased it a Walmart for $7.48 and it has 6 sheets. I tried printing and I think it came out ok. I believe my problem with not getting color rich images is my printer. I have a photo printer but im not using photo software that came with it to print instead in using the one microsoft has to print regular documents and use the t-shirt transfer feature. I wil try printing with the photo feature to see if it works better.

I use Avery Light Fabric transfers #3271. I buy it at Staples for about $8 for 6 sheets. I do all my graphics in Microsoft Word, resize images to be no bigger than .6 inches. When I print, this is what I do:
Select Print
Select Properties
Under Paper/Quality Change Paper Type to HP Iron On Transfer and Print Quality to Best
Under Finishing select Mirror Image
Print your images. Cut to size, I use a paper cutter and cut to just a smidge less that ribbon width.
When doing the actual "iron on", I use a wooden cutting board on my ironing board and some scrap cotton fabric. I do a quick press on the ribbon, then apply my iron on face down onto ribbon, do a quick pass with iron, THEN I cover with the fabric and PRESS HARD AND CONTINUALLY PASSING IRON OVER TRANSFER/RIBBON, NO STEAM. This is the key!! I have tried following their directions and I had problems with the image coming off. I go over it at least for 4 minutes. LET IT COOL COMPLETELY before trying to pull off the paper backing. try a small corner, you will see whether the image transferred correctly or not, but I don't have any problems. Hope this helps.
