Do iron-on transfers last?

Recommended Posts

I've used this kind where you iron on the whole page

but not this kind where the image gets stamped on the material

I'm thinking about trying the type where the image is stamped on. The other type always comes off after a few washings.

 

Anyone have experience with these for something they machine washed?

I haven't used the stamp-on, but we use the other kind, but we buy avery brand. I make SEVERAL shirts for my daughter. She has a viking one I made that she wears EVERY weekend for the football game. She drools all over it, gets food all over it. And every week I soak it in baby oxy clean and wash it, and it still looks great. Here is a picture:

yes, this is the kind I was calling "stamp on" where the picture gets transfered to the material. with the other kind the paper remains stuck on the shirt. that is the kind that doesn't work well.

I'm glad this other type works. i'm going to order some. I ordered onsies just like the one your have with the gerber baby.

thanks for the picture!

I buy the stretchable ones so that when they are washed, or she pulls on her shirt it doesn't show lines where it was stretched. And the instructions say to iron for a certain amount of time, and then let cool and peel. I think it just cools back to the paper, so I iron the shirt first then lay the paper down, and iron til the edges roll up and then peel of when its hot. I think it looks alot better than letting it cool, plus if there is a part that doesn't just peel right off you can iron right there and it comes right up.

do you think I could iron onto a 6 pack cooler. I have been trying to find them online and I cant find them without having to buy like 100. So I thought about making my own. I dont know if an iron on would work on that type of material though.
