Instructions to Create a Halloween T-shirt Transfer
STEP ONE: Begin by choosing a Halloween image or photograph from your computer. This image/photograph should be Halloween oriented and be of a large size. Try to find an image that is clear and contains bright colors. At the end of this article, you will find a list of resources that will guide you to websites that contain Halloween images and photographs to use for your Halloween t-shirt transfer project.
STEP TWO: Print the Halloween design on a piece of printable t-shirt transfer paper. If your image contains light colors, choose “reverse”. When printed, the image should be large enough to fill the front or back area of your t-shirt so that people can easily see your Halloween t-shirt design. Next, cut out around the image to remove any excess blank space. Try to get as close to the image as possible without cutting into the design.
STEP THREE: The final step is to transfer your Halloween design to your white t-shirt. Peel the transfer paper and place the image side of the transfer paper down face down onto the shirt. The transfer design should be positioned in the final area. Finally, use a heated iron to carefully iron the transfer onto the shirt. There are a number of types of transfer kits that allow you to create t-shirts. Always read the manufacturer’s directions and follow all directions.
Halloween Transfer T-shirt Tips & General Information
When your Halloween t-shirt needs to be washed, be sure to wash your item in cold or warm water. The t-shirt should also be washed prior to transferring the image. When washing your shirt, turn it inside out to avoid fading of the transfer design. It’s recommended to use dark colors as your Halloween design as these show up best on a t-shirt.
