    I got my transfer paper at Staples and it is for ink jet printers, made by AVERY and it is called DARK T-SHIRT TRANSFERS. There are 5 sheets in a package but I was able to get 4 logos on each sheet. I really like the way they came out - there are some horizontal lines that I notice (I think from the printer) but I don't think anyone else will notice them. I followed the dirrections inside the package and it was really easy to do. No special tips needed.

    On a side note.....
    my FI got really excited about the way these turned out and now he has started monograming everything in sight to see what else we can do to put inside the OOT bags. He tried to put the monogram on the old navy flip flops - it didn't look so hot since the foam of the shoe kinda turned a different color. He also tried one of our old beach towels - that didn't work either since the fabric isn't smooth - towels are all nubby.

    We ordered the black polo shirts for the guys in our group that will be embroidard with our monogram so they are taken care of. But for the girls we are going to do regular tee's from old navy. I think the logo with the iron on paper will work great on these. I went on the website today and was able to get the girls black shirts for $3.97 each and it was only $5 to ship them all to my house. You have to check them out online if this is something you are looking to do. They also had kid sizes too.

    SORRY for the long post but I was excited to share with you ladies! Let me know if you have any other questions....

          You inspired me - I just order my OOT bags from Cheap Totes! Is that where you got your black bags from? I really wish they showed all of their colors - but I just went with natural.

            Okay Sarah, those look amazing. Did you make the logo yourself on your computer? If not, Anny, do you know how to do that? Also, I too want to know where you got your bags from, I love the black, it looks really nice.

              Sarah -
              Those look AWESOME!!!

              Question - Did you cut out the logo as a circle or square?

                I got my black bags from this site - LALA posted it before in another thread. Wholesale Blank Bags - Tote -BlankShirtStore.com

                I my logo into a circle and then ironed it on - you really can't tell where the iron on paper starts and stops on the black bags. LOVE IT!

                My monograms were designed by aylee and she does them really quick and is cheap - totally not worth me trying to do my own when she can do it for next to nothing. Tell her you found out about her services on here - she should really be a member of this board...here is her link

                any other questions let me know - I am happy to help

                  I'm dumb Sarah. I need more explaination.
                  So, you printed 4 logos on one paper. When you cut them out, did you cut out right around the circle or did you just cut the paper into 4 squares with the logo on it?

                    I printed 4 logos on one sheet and then cut around the circle of each one - as close as I could to the line of the logo but not too close that I cut off the design.

                      Those look great!!! I was a little nervous about the idea of using a black background, but after seeing your bags....the nerves are gone! Those look fantastic and your logo is adorable!!

                      You are way ahead of the game girl!! ....I'm starting to think I need to get movin'..... you and Natalie are both on the ball (OOT Bags, table runners, chair sashes, luminaries, t-shirts)......I'm hoping that you two are ahead of schedule and that I'm just on schedule! I feel like I need to get busy!!
