OOT bag logos - Done!

Recommended Posts

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:

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
