How to Iron Logos Onto a T-Shirt


Iron-on logos are a quick and easy way to get your business or organization's name onto a T-shirt. As long as you know how to use a high-quality printer, you can iron on a logo that will look just as good as if you had paid someone hundreds of dollars to do it for you. Keep in mind that if you are using a dark colored T-shirt, you will want to make sure that your logo has bright colors.

Things You'll Need

  • Hanger
  • Iron
  • Ironing board
  • Wash the T-shirt if it is not already preshrunk. Once the shirt is dry, immediately place it on a hanger and hang it up to avoid wrinkles.

  • Place your shirt on the ironing board. The front of your shirt should be facing up and be the only layer of fabric on the top of the ironing board.

  • Turn the iron on and set it to medium heat. Center the logo on the front of the shirt.

  • Place the iron on top of the iron-on logo and gently move it in a circular fashion across the logo. Continue ironing the logo for a count of 30 seconds.

  • Pull back one corner of the transfer gently, and check to see if the transfer is complete. If there is any transfer left on the paper, lay the paper back down and continue to iron to another count of 30. At this point your transfer should be complete. If not, continue to iron to counts of 10 before rechecking the transfer.

Tips & Warnings

  • Adding a small washcloth under the T-shirt where you are applying the transfer will help keep a thinner shirt from sticking to the ironing board.
