Iron On Fun

My new Polka Dot Racing Team logo doesn't pass Cafepress' acceptable use policy. And I can't really disagree with them so I have to resort to the old-fashioned (as of ten years ago that is) way to produce my shirts: Iron On Transfers.

I've tried two brands and one of them works out OK so production started over the weekend. I'm going with two styles: plain white tees and cool "ringer" tees. Here's the view with the official new Polka Dot Racing Team Motto:




I'm not going to give up my quest to find somebody that will print these with better quality and/or I might actually learn to silkscreen but until then this is our shirt!

Now that is funny...the whole "fast faster fasten" takes on a whole new meaning when affixing an iron-on...Thank you claus.

Google "velox ocius pango". You're a frigging powerhouse.

Jarrett,
Since the dawn of time man has searched for the answer to your questions...indeed, what is a god? And is he/she a reliable product?

Of course I'm caught trying to make it sound like I did a ton of research on these iron-on transfers. I really just bought the paper for dark shirts and paper for light shirts and like the paper for light shirts better.

Now, if I get into silk screening, I might be able to talk about mesh-counts or something.
