    Okay, not quite done. But I've got 19 of the 22 I need done, so I'm really close. And I really like the way they turned out!

    I used June Tailor Print n' Press transfer paper - 3 sheets for $4.99 at Michaels.

    Got my bags from InGreetings. Love them. The weight of the canvas is outstanding. Comes in several colors. We went with black/natural because FI thought that the singles guys might be more likely to use them again.

    The logos were tricky. Actually, the flip horizontal was tricky. When I flipped them as jpg, gif or any other image file they got really grainy and not so pretty. So I re did them in massive sizes - like 300x the regular size. Flipped each piece (there's the tree, the script, a white shadow behind the script, and the date info with it's white shadow) individually, then compressed the whole thing back down. The grainy-ness went away when I compressed it. In the end, I still couldn't convert it to a jpg without it getting grainy, so I just printed it as a powerpoint.

    The canvas is really thick and bumpy, so the tree ended up looking a little distressed. I actually really like the result. But I think if you want to have a totally clear, perfect image, you'll need to find heavier weight transfer paper.

    I printed them on normal rather than best. It saves ink and I couldn't tell the difference.

    I had the iron on each one for 2-1/2 minutes (yes, I used a timer, I'm a little retentive that way). I ironed them on a wooden cutting board. I put a logo on another bag while I waited for the paper to cool, and then peeled off the backing of the first one, so the backing was on about 3-4 minutes after I finished ironing.

    Here they are:
