    Hi guys,

    I am planning to surprise my DH with the tshirt for our holiday...

    I have create a really simple logo for the front with 'Brattan-Wilson on tour - 2010 at the back.

    I am planning to give it to him on the day of our holiday but we are going to the private lounge so not sure if they like this kind of clothing sigh....

    What do you think of the 'logo'.....

    Also do you know of any online tshirt company (street tshirt is quite expensive)

    IT's actually quite easy to do it yourself. Just get some iron on transfer paper and then you can iron on the design to the tshirt of your choice. I've done it several times now. Let me know if your interested in doing that and I'll send the directions

    If you want to put it on a dark tshirt, they have special paper for that too.

    Instructions:

    1. Find or create an image you want to use for the transfer. You can scan an image into your computer, find one on the internet, or create one in a software program.

    2. Manipulate the image. Using basic image editing software, you can resize your image, add effects, change colors, or do whatever you want until it's just right. Use your editing program to mirror the image so that it comes out correctly on the fabric you transfer it to.

    3. Print the transfer. Print a test page on plain paper, and when you're sure it's how you want it, print it onto a piece of transfer paper. Make sure to load the transfer paper so that the image will print on the correct side (this should be clearly marked).

    4. Lay out the fabric. Place the t-shirt (or other cloth to which the image will be transferred) on a hard, flat surface, and smooth out any wrinkles. The work surface should be heat resistant and should be large enough to accommodate the entire area of the transfer with a little room to spare.

    5. Place the transfer image-side down on the fabric. Put the transfer on the cloth precisely where you want the image to be. Be sure you have the image facing the fabric.

    6. Place brown paper inside the shirt directly under the transfer paper. Unless you want the image to be printed on both sides of a shirt (if that's what you're transferring the image to), you'll need to put something between the front and back.

    7. Iron on the transfer . Carefully read the instructions given with the transfer paper. Set the iron to the designated temperature, and wait for it to warm up. Move the iron in large circles on top of the transfer paper. Start by focusing on the outside of the image, and gradually move toward the center. Be sure to apply adequate pressure for an adequate amount of time for ten seconds (see the transfer paper instructions), but keep the iron moving to prevent scorching.

    8. Wait for the image to cool. Turn off the iron when finished and let the image cool for a few minutes.

    9. Remove the backing from the transfer paper. Gently peel the backing off of the fabric.

    10. Care for your project properly. Wash and dry the cloth on a cool setting only. If the transfer was done to clothing, turn the article of clothing inside out before washing.
