Often, we fumble inside our minds and sift through gift ideas to find an appropriate gift for a person. And on deciding the gift, we give in much time and mental labour, as well as consider many factors like age of the person, relation with the person, the occasion of gifting, the price or budget, the personal choice of the person, and finally availability of the chosen gift items.
This surely indicates how tough it is to select a gift for a person for any occasion, and so much of time, thoughts, and mental labour is given into this to ensure that the giver and gifted, both enjoy the gift. It is one big reason that the rise in custom gifts has been soaring worldwide, and people are nowadays growing more and more conscious about the several DIY and custom gift options. One such highly attractive and useful DIY gift and dressmaking process involve the use of Iron on Transfers.

Specific transfer papers like butter paper are there, and these are called Iron On papers. This type of paper can hold the ink from a LaserJet printer until the paper is heated. This means you can put the Iron on paper in the printer to print anything. And then you can transfer that print from the paper to any fabric of your choice. This can be done by simply turning down the paper with the printed side over the fabric, and ironing a hot iron over the paper smoothly and patiently, to transfer the ink from the paper to the fabric.
This is one of the simplest technologies that help create beautiful fabric and clothes in just a few minutes. Printing a picture or text or any graphic of your choice in a laser printer would not take much time, and just a minute. And then shaping up the paper by cutting through the image borders is another small step. Finally, you can put the paper over the fabric at the place you want the image printed, and simply iron on it. That’s pretty simple, but the outcome you get out of this craft job is awesome and eye-catching.
