Ironing time varies according to the size of your transfer. We recommend 3 minutes for a full page transfer, 2 minutes for a 1/2 page transfer, and 1 minute for a 1/4 page transfer. First make slow, 20 second passes across the transfer, from left to right. Next make slow, 20 second passes across the transfer, from top to bottom. Use enough over-lapping passes to cover the image entirely. Allow your garment to cool for 2 minutes before peeling away the ironing tissue. View our Avery Dark Fabric Transfers demo to learn more.

      This review is from AVERY Printable Crafts and Fabric Transfers FAQs:

      I used the light fabric transfers on light grey and light blue.I got a white outline around both. Really didn't like.I used an Epson, cool peel transfer and liked it much better, but it still needs improvement.

          I needed this iron on (dark fabric 3279) completed tonight for an event tomorrow morning. I spent half the day trying to do it and wasted 4 pieces of paper (3 designs per page). Not once could I get the backing to peel off. I tried all the different tips that came with it as well as all the ones I found on the internet. I am so irritated and have wasted the $10 that it cost for the packet and can't participate in the event tomorrow. I have used other versions of these in the past with no problem so I'm not sure what has changed.

          Instructions are Wrong!

          By Amber

          from Lancaster, PA

          This review is from AVERY Printable Crafts and Fabric Transfers FAQs:

          I make shirts using iron on transfers frequently. I bought the Avery Stretchable Fabric Transfers 3302 for light fabric today. I followed the instruction to a T. When I tried to peel off the backing it was stuck and in areas where it did come off the image was not visible. It was just a white sheet. I then went to video instructions and again followed it to a T with the same results. The backing was stuck and the image was not visible.

          By the FOURTH sheet, I realized that the sheets provided were for dark fabric, even though the package clearly says light colored.

          I printed the image WITHOUT reversing it and followed the online instructions for the dark fabric transfers using parchment paper as the covering and it worked.

          Because the sheets/directions were incorrect, I wasted 3 of the 5 sheets in my package and ruined a shirt.

          I hope to get a refund for the product.

          Pictures are posted below.

              Me, again. I just used the light transfer paper we bought yesterday. All fabrics came out with a green cast with yellow on the sheet that is ripped off. Why would this happen? A print on white paper came out with the correct colors (no green cast).
              I used a heat press at 350 degrees for 30 seconds which is the setting we always used in the past with your product. What is is with this new pack? 3275 is what is written at the top of the pack, if that means anything. I'd like your "excuse" for this happening. Thanks-
