Default Drawing on Transfer papers

Well I am using Avery Light Fabric Transfer papers on white t-shirts and I heard I could write on these, so with that information I used Crayola Markers to draw/color my designs on the paper, everything went smoothly and the design was on the shirt.

But when I washed it The colors begin spreading throughout the shirt. The design is perfect but the colors used in the turned parts of the shirt into that color and now its ugly i hope you guys know what i mean

So here are my questions

what if i used a permanent marker this time or a sharpie to draw on the paper will the colors spread around the shirt or stay at the same spot

Does ink do the same thing as markers or are they permanent?

do i have to use a printer?

You heard you could write on them from? Avery?

The paper does not water seal in the design. So if you use a water soluble medium, it will not work very well.

Permanent markers would work better than crayola. Although the paper is made to be used with an inkjet printer.

thanks for your help, but i don't see the difference with a printer or not because all the printer is doing is laying the ink on top of the paper i would be doing the same thing if i drew on top of it

actually i saw it on a video from youtube she used color pencils

The ink that is used for transfers is a pigment ink. Some markers are dye based. Crayon can be heat set with an iron. You draw directly on the shirt. If you do a google, you should be able to find something on the process.

Alright thank you so as long as I print using the ink the colors should be set on to my shirt if the heat is on high enough?

Yes, if you follow the heat set instructions for the paper, inkjet ink, whether pigment or dye based will hold. All will fade, but will certainly last better than crayons.

MSP Soft Jet Light says it can be used with inkjet or Crayons, Markers and coloring pens.

I am not sure what the real paper is. Michigan Specialty Paper sells it.

I think its a jet pro paper but not sure.

Attached is the pricing paper. Its old tho.

Good Luck
