I am new to this. I am just doing it for fun and have something to help me pass the time. Old ain't for sissies. I do this for myself and for a few friends.

I have been putting transfers on shirts etc., using an iron. I have a Canon S9000 printer for photos and also an Epson Stylus photo R340 printer.

I am using Bestblanks transfer paper. It does an OK job, at least I am happy with the results. They look good.

Question - is there something I can spray these transfers with after ironing them onto the shirt that will make them more resistant to fading in the wash?

Or anything else to make them last longer?

Any helpful suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Durability?

The key for making the transfer adhere to the garment is uniform heat and pressure (heat press, NOT an iron) along with a commercial grade transfer paper such as JPSS. Good luck and happy pressing. ......JB

Re: Durability?

The paper from best blanks does fade and bleed a little, even with good inks. I would use JPSS like was said above.. :)
