I am planning to print my own iron on transfers for my OOT bags...


So I designed my own using images online and wording- I have it so one of the pictures has a white background so only the image pops and its background fades into the white page where I typed other words- when I print it, will all the other words print out and the white background of the picture show, or will it somehow look exactly how I have it on my screen? I am printing it on a canvas bag, so I dont want a big white square around my image. 


any advice from people who printed their own ?

I *THINK* that the white square may show up.  I know when I have done them before I did them in Photoshop on a translucent background.  Even then, there was a bit of a border just from the transfer paper itself.


I would recommend doing it in Photoshop on a translucent background, and when you print it, cut around the design to minimize any additional transfer from the paper!

Sorry i have no advice, the only time I did an iron-on transfer was on to white shirts so this was a none issue.  Seems like Kat2015 has a great idea for you, hope it works!!!
