Step 1: Credit Card?!

Yes! Find a maxed out credit card or one with little interest.. just kidding, any card will do! You will use this for a squeegee.

Step 2: Wood Choice

The best wood that i found to transfer the ink is Maple! Either solid or plywood works great.

Step 3: Transfer Paper?

The best paper to use is sticker paper. The left over part after a sticker is peeled off is shiny and perfect

Step 4: Ink Jet Printer

Dust off your favorite ink jet printer. It has to be an inkjet printer.

Step 5: Sanding

The key to the transfer is using 120 grit sand paper. It is the best grit versus transfer that i have found

Step 6: Load Up

Now its time to load up your printer with the transfer paper

Step 7: Click Print

I like to use photoshop for printing because you can size the image and mirror the image for words

Step 8: Transfer Time

Next you flip the print onto the wood and using a credit card as a squeegee, transfer!!

Step 9: Clear Coat

You must use some kind of clear coat. My favorite is varethane.

Step 10: Let It Dry

Its ready! this really makes great gifts for friends and family!!
