I actually just bought the sheets at walmart, but I also wasn't printing a whole lot of ribbon either.

I just did a few bows with the school mascot on them at the high schools I do shows at. They sell like crazy, so I will be making more for next year. I just add $1-2 (depending on the area) to each bow, they still sell like crazy, one school I had 1 left (and that was a slow show) the other schools the bows were gone in the first few hours.

T-shirt iron on paper, you just find the image online, print it out on the iron on paper and then transfer it to the ribbon You can find it at walmart, here it is with the office supplies, but each store is different so who knows ???? the instructions are on the box

I tried this and didnt get very good results. I followed the directions. My ribbon ended up hard and kind of messy at the edges of the tranfers. If anyone has tips I would appreciate them!

Yeah, I had the same issues. It also almost felt a little sticky. I wasn't a big fan of doing it this way.
