DIY graphic tee // DIY

This is a quick and mini blog post for those of you who love quick DIYs!

The first step is to buy T-shirt transfer paper. I got mine on Amazon and you can just look at the types and choose which one you think is great - I don't think there are major differences between different brands though. 
The next step is to make a document with quotes, images, etc. (really anything you would like to have on you t-shirt/shirt) Print the document on the transfer paper and cut out your texts and/or images. Don't forget to flip the images/text if the instructions for your transfer paper say to do so.


Next, it's time to prep your t-shirt. All you need to do it is find it, and then iron it. Afterwards, figure out where you want to position your cut out(s). If you have text, you can use a ruler to make sure the word(s) are lined up. 





Next, follow the directions on the package in which you received to see how you need to iron it. If there aren't clear instructions then take the safe route like I took below and keep a very thin piece of fabric in between your t-shirt and iron just in case.


And that's all you have to do! Just print and iron on!
Disclaimer: depending on the quality of your paper and inkjet printer (usually I've seen that the instructions tell you to use inkjet only) the quality of your overall t-shirt with the graphics may vary. In my experience the quality isn't always as good as store bought t-shirts but it is satisfactory and cheaper than a lot of store bought t-shirts. Also, it is a great DIY if you want a very specific quote or graphic - it makes a great gift too!


Hope you liked this quick and easy DIY!
