Default ? about print your own ribbon

Ok Im interested in PYOR but im curious to how this works. Do you actually run the ribbon threw a special printer or do you print the images on transfer paper & then iron it on the ribbon? If you've done this what was experience with it good, bad, time consuming? I think the possibilities could be endless if its pretty easy to do!

I plan on attempting PYOR with transfer paper but I would definitely be into hearing other peoples experience with the process!

You can use transfer paper, but it doesn't come out as nice as if you were to print directly on the ribbon. Here is an awesome tut on how to do that for free, I highly recommend donating to this lady though even if it is only a couple of bucks. http://www.littlecubsboutique.blogspot.com/

you print it on transfer paper and iron it on, i just did some actually lol. i think it is a pain in the butt, but i love the options and still do it as long as i am just doing a few yards at a time it doesn't bother me but when i get into 10-25 yards at a time shoor me know lol. i like the transfer paper at hobby lobby more than the transfer paper at walmart

Awesome! I think this option is more my style. I totally agree about HL transfer paper. I made some Yo Gabba Gabba shirts for my boys with the HL paper & then I used walmarts transfer paper for some Blues Clues shirts. The YGG shirts lasted several washes where the Blues Clues shirts were only wearable the one time. Its such a better quality IMO. I think I will give it a try!
