... that you can print on your color printer? I think Avery puts them out. Are they hard to do? Do they work? Do they wash ok? What's the skinny?

I cant help you Lisa but I am also curious, I wanted to make shirts for Fathers day gifts.
There was a thread if I remember about this before christmas.

OK, I saw Gen use these on Trading Spaces not too long ago and they seemed to work pretty well. I've never tried them, though, so I'm not speaking from experience.

One of my co-workers made us all t-shirts using these transfers. I'm sorry to say that I've never worn the shirt or washed it, so I don't know how they hold up.
I did make one for my Dad. Well, I've printed it out, but have been procrastinating about actually ironing it on the shirt. I'm afraid I'm going to mess it up. So once again, I don't know how well they last after washing. I will say that it was very easy to print on though. There are a couple different brands. I believe HP makes some as well.

My SIL made some T-shirts for xmas w/the iron-on transfers from her computer. I don't know how they wash, but I'll ask her on Monday. I'll let you know what she said about them.

i have used the trasferes for my sorority t-shirts. they work wonderfully!!! We used a basic black outline design onto a red shirt and I have had my shirt since 2000, and thru countless washings and spit-up (thanks to my neice) it has just now started showing signs of wear. In my opinon, they kick butt. :)

We used the transfers to create t-shirts for my husband's band and they worked great! Just be sure to read the instructions carefully because there are some tricks to printing them out. But, they look good--even better after the first washing. Mine has held up fine so far (it's only been a month). I would highly recommend them.

I've used them several times and I think they are great! When my third child was born I made "best big brother/sister" t-shirt as gifts from the new baby. I've also made personalized school bags with the plain canvas bags you get at the craft stores.
They do fade a little when washed, but over all, I think they held up fairly well.

I used them at Christmas to make totebags for my MIL and mom. I was most impressed with them and will be making a "Big Sister" tshirt for DD to wear to the hospital after our new one is born. I have a Hewlett Packard DeskJet and used the HP transfer paper.
