Hi Daniel. For most types of transfer, applying heat serves two purposes. To set the ink and to activate the adhesive which attaches the transfer to the garment. It is possible to use an iron, but you need to apply quite a bit of pressure and ensure all areas are well pressed.

The iron on transfers sold in shops like Staples, are more designed for 'one off' events such as birthday parties, reunions, etc. Very few will stand up to repeated trips through the washing machine, without flaking, peeling, or fading. Your better option would be to buy a better quality transfer, from one of the suppliers on the left.

Hope this helps.
