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.
