You need bags (check out cheaptotes.com) and iron on transfer paper (you can get it at cheaptots.com or walmart or basically any craft store should have it).

 

Flip your logo so that it's mirror immage. Print it onto the transfer paper (don't use a lazor printer, it's too hot and will melt the paper).

 

Cut the image out of the paper leaving a little edge (try to round the corners).

 

And then follow the instructions from the package about how long to iron them.

 

Good luck!!!!

One more tidbit of advice - push really hard with the iron - you can't over iron a transfer - in my experience the paper backing is easier to remove when it is a wee bit cooler - so let the project cool a little. (we did family reunion tees with the iron on paper!)

Yeah, what Amarillis said!

 

My instuctions said to use a surface below waist level so that you get good legerage and put a LOT of pressure. It said not to use an ironing board, but maybe a table or something with a towel over it.

Here's what I think....

I found the "transfer to dark" iron on transfers to be easy to work with, and the color was AWESOME! compared to the regular iron ons. With the "transfer to dark" iron-ons, you do NOT need to flip the image, but you do need to cut out your image without a border (I used cuticle scissors and they worked great, but my design was a seahorse with lots of little curves)

 

I used colorful canvas bags i found at the craft store and the iron on transfers in the same aisle....Good luck!

I posted this question somewhere else before I found this thread! Has anyone done a light coloured transfer onto a dark coloured bag? Should I even bother trying this? How hard do you think it would be?

Another piece of advice - make sure your bags are cotton. If they are some sort of synthetic, they may melt with the heat required for the transfer.
