Make sure it's no larger than 8 x 10.5. How about the fonts? meaning?
I reread your post. To answer your actual question, no you don't unless you need to print as a mirror image. If you are using paper you put face down onto the fabric when you heat press it, then it'll need to be mirror-imaged. You can do this in photoshop or even in GIMP (free, opensource photoshop type of software). You mentioned messing with fonts in your post...I think you are refering to converting all text to an outline. Thats only for shops that print your stuff for you just in case they don't have the same font file on their machines. If you are printing at home you just print it like it was a normal piece of paper- just make sure you put the paper in with the correct side up, I made that mistake the first time I did it.DO i need to do anything special to my design in order to print on 8.5X11 transfer paper? How about the fonts? Thanks guys.
