    not to burst your bubble but the transfers dont work that great and if something is not a cutout design then you will have a whitish glue reisdue. Its best if u use images that can be fully cutout

    It also depends on the shirt he is using. 100% cotton could lead to the glue residue, but if you go to any hobby store, you can pick up a 50/50 polyester and cotton blend, it could work much better.

    Ebay:
    sometimes local copy shops and do screens and put it on a t-shirt. a new screen cost like $75 but the shop holds on to it and you can get as many as you want, and it'a like $12 or so for a t-shirt.

    I just remembered that there is a small Kiosk in the mall that does shirt designs and they will print off and iron on a design of your choice, as long as you bring the file with you. Cost me only $18 to get a shirt done there once.

    Just got back.
    No transfers,
    No ink (i need 6 ink carts and they had all but 1 =/)
    No white t-shirts? (that i dont understand)

    So i got a grey 50/50 t-shirt...Will this work?
    I will cut everything out...thinking about making a red frame around it like the old school shirts from back in the day.

    Will try again tues/wed. =/

    The paper came with only 5 transfers and i wasted 3....Oh well.

    White shirt came out perfect.
