OOT BAGS: Will an Iron on transfer on a canvas tote?

Recommended Posts

So I found some awesome white canvas totes that I would like to use for our OOT Bags and I definitely want to personalize them. However, every iron on paper I see says it would be good to iron onto T-shirts. If it is heavier than a T-shirt to use a heat press! Those things are expensive!!! So I am wondering if anyone has used an iron on transfer on canvas before and how it worked out.

Hmm.  I haven't tried personally, but the canvas fabric isn't going to be smooth, like a tshirt, which is probably why they tell you to use a heat press so that it adheres the right way.  Could you try buying one bag and one transfer and giving it a go?  Good luck!

meeshamillz - I saw iron on transfer paper at Walmart the other day (in Canada but I am sure it is in the same in the states).  They had 3 or 4 different kinds and when I read the back there was one that said transfer onto canvas! I would definitely check it out, it was in the office section right near the cardstock and labels!  

 

Hope this helps and if you go ahead with something let us know!! I will definitely be personalizing too!!!

 

Oh also, where'd you find your totes?! Post a pic!!!!

I will definitely try it and see what happens and let you know. I found the totes online. Another bride posted this link http://www.cheaptotes.com/ You may have to copy and paste it because the links don't always stick when I post to the forum from my iPhone.

You can definitely use Iron On Transfers on your canvas tote OOT bags. I did this as have many other BDW brides. It takes some practice to get it right & you may mess up a bag or 2, but you will get the hang of it.

 

If you do a search, you'll find tons of existing threads with Iron on tips & directions, as well as pictures of completed OOT bags.

Here are a few threads that I found. Hope this helps:

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
