huh? You can see where the paper was ironed on, if you look carefully.

Yea, I saw that. How is the quality of the shirt though? Does it hold up in the wash?

(Assuming his stuff works the same as mine) It lasts a good amount of time, but eventually will start to wear off.

Nice! The only problem is that iron-on transfer paper tends to degrade and peel surprisingly quickly. Screen-printing holds up better, but this is SO much faster and cheaper. Unless you win a contest...

They make paper that you can print onto, and then iron it onto your shirt.
