So not only is this paper more expensive than jolee's so i thought i was getting more of a quality paper, but the product is pathetic, disgusting, ridiculous, paper, i bought this for something important i needed, followed the instructions in the packaging exactly and to my surprise! it turned out like garbage... took some researching online to find out exactly what i thought I was doing wrong but i didn't do anything wrong,. they put instructions for printing on light fabric(which i did) and the actual paper in the box turned out to be made for dark fabric (so long story short the wrong product was in the box, wouldn't have been so bad if they put the instructions for that paper in the box but they didn't).... There are countless terrible reviews for this and most avery products for t-shirts online and I guess its my fault for not doing my research. Lesson learned Avery, thanks for making terrible products and putting the wrong products in the box. I appreciate you greatly wasting my time and money, and printer ink.

    Comments about Avery Iron-on Transfer Paper:

    I bought this transfer sheets over 8 years ago and then printed the pictures 6 years ago. I never got around to transferring them to t-shirts. When I moved 2 years ago I packed them so well I couldn't find them until recently. I decided to give them a try but forgot the instructions on how to do them. Took a chance and followed instructions for a similar product. When I got done, I let it cool for 10 minutes then peeled the backing off. Had a little problem with it, but it did come off completely. The pictures and the colors were beautiful! They'd were of my niece's wedding and I made 2 shirts with those transfers, one for my niece and one for her mom. These pictures were not done by the photographer but were done by me and have not been seen by anyone but me. So these are very special. This was scary as I did not know if these transfers would work after all this time, but they did. Thank you for a great product.

    The Transfer Burned

        Comments about Avery Iron-on Transfer Paper:

        I followed the directions exactly as stated, I even used a timer to make sure. When done the transfer had brown burn marks all over it. Additionally, I did not know the background was going to be white... not clear. If I ad known I would have cut it out more precisely and not used rounded edges as suggested, nor would I have used white writing that didn't show up.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Avery Iron-on Transfer Paper:

                It printed out well. Since my design was a rectangle with rounded corners, I wanted to use our guillotine paper chopper to ensure straight cuts, and so I didn't leave a grab tab as the instructions said. Instead, I cut 3 of the 4 rounded corners, then used my thumbnail to separate the backing at the 4th uncut corner. This worked on all but the 3rd one. I actually separate the paper backing itself, so when I attempted to peel it, I left some of the paper on the design. I was able to separate it at a rounded corner, which was actually easier than the square corner.

                Using MS Publisher, I added straight lines on the outside of the design to show where to cut on our chopper. I made the lines as close to the purple of the shirts I could, to help ensure I didn't leave any white around my design.

                Overall, these weren't difficult to use. Slight issue with the backing on 1/5. Also, my purple guideline didn't match well on the first shirt, and our chopper needs sharpened/smooth out. I used extra time and pressure with the iron around the edges. As of this review, I have yet to wash them, so I don't know about longevity. I don't expect them to last years like a commercial shirt, but I was able to make custom shirts for about $6.16 each. I can this once a year, if I need to.

                    I made sure there was no water in my iron. I used a wooden board under the t-shirts and ironed with a hot iron for 20 seconds per spot. Turned out great. Follow instructions carefully, and wash according to directions.

                    I just used # 3271 to make photo pillows - which I have made before. This time the image would not stick along the edges well, which I figured I could fix using fabric paint to decorate the edges and help seal. BUT when I started stuffing it, the image started pealing and cracking in the center. Ugh, very disappointed as this project should have only taken me an hour and I have wasted time, ink and other resources trying to get this project done. Now I need to wait for my husband to stop and buy more transfer paper (probably a different brand) on his way home! I have used AVery before. But this box - ugh!

                        I read the bad reviews and they enhanced my diligent adherence to directions. I did exactly as Avery said and the transfer worked like a charm. The back came off easy for me. I left a tab and ripped a little bit and the back peeled off easily. Then I cut the tab off. Simple

                        Comments about Avery Iron-on Transfer Paper:

                        To all the people who can't peel the backing paper: the directions clearly state that you should leave a "grab tab" when cutting out your design. This way, you can work and wrinkle the product a little bit, to separate the layers without ruining your design, after which the "grab tab" can be cut off. Then we have the person who peeled off the paper, only to find that there was a white layer blocking the design. Did this person iron the transfer on, design down, and THEN try to remove the backing paper? You remove the paper first, and the white layer prevents the dark t-shirt color from obscuring the design. It reminds me of a saying my father had: The lousy carpenter blames his tools. There is nothing wrong with this product. It works great if you are able to read and follow directions.

                          I had a great design idea for t shirts but I needed dark transfer material. The print was great and it cut well but it was impossible to remove the paper backing so I could iron it on to my shirt. I wish I had read the reviews before I purchased the product. What a waste of money.

                            I would like to start by saying that I am a huge AVERY fan and use many of your products in both business & personal tasks. I have used your T-shirt transfers many times, but this was the first time to use the Dark transfer. I will say that NEVER again will I purchase these for use unless there is a re-design of the backing paper. The design printed beautifully & once I was able to get the backing off (never completely, there were always snippets of paper left on the design) they ironed on easily. The issue is the backing is not designed to peel easily. I made 4 shirts and it took over 30 minutes to remove the backing per shirt (2 hours total). I had to eventually use an Exacto and score the back enough that I was able to get it to lift in a small section, and once that was complete I had to rub the remaining paper with my finger to get it off the print. I still love the Avery products and will continue to use them, but not this particluar item!

AMAZING PRODUCT. As for the lady that complained about the white background....DUH! if it was clear, the color wouldn't look sharp. I know from experience what a clear iron-on looks like on a dark t-shirt, not good. This product did exactly what it was supposed to do! Thank you Avery!

                              I followed the directions. Printed beautifully. Very vivid sharp images printed. I used my heat press machine at 305 degrees for 30sec and it stayed on the shirt and looked really good. First shirt I burned, second I didn't mirror the image, and third shirt was the charm except that it cracked when I stretched it and started peeling the next day. I used it for a design I did for my 4 year old. The face of sadness and disappointment in her face was not cool. I tried 4/6 sheets from packet and I must say, I will not buy this type of transfer anymore, will try a different brand.

                              This product is very expensive, my pack didn't have instructions with it, and it didn't work. I have been transferring pictures for a long time, and I thought I might try this brand. Never again will I buy from Avery. I read all of the directions before beginning the process and followed each one to the a T, but when it came time to peel the backing off of the image, it would not budge. I waited the 2 minutes as directed and could not make any progress. I thought perhaps I did not apply enough heat so I re-ironed the image and tried again. Still no luck. I tried peeling while the paper was still hot, and did manage to reveal a small corner of the picture but I could not get any further. I cannot imagine that this was due to a lack of heat or pressure as I scorched the table under the project. I am very disappointed and will certainly not purchase this product again. I spent close to $60 on a few packages of this paper . I would never recommend this product to anyone else. If you are thinking of buying this product, don't. It's not worth the time, grief, or money.

                              I followed the directions and the transfer printed fine. It seemed to iron on ok, but the back would not peel off and when I did get it off only part of the transfer stayed on the shirt. The second one I tried none of the transfer stayed on the shirt. I followed the directions.... will not use again and do not recommend.

                                  Following the instructions carefully my product came out terrible. Took way longer to transfer and didn't even stick well and was not stretchable as it calls for and got all flaky and pieces were falling everywhere.

                                  THE BACKGROUND IS WHITE! I bought these to add text to navy T-shirts. It should be a clear label so the DARK SHIRT shows through. I am baffled that this even exists.

                                  There IS a learning curve with these, even if you follow the directions exactly. We underheated one, and it peeled off. We overheated one, and the whole thing had a yellowish hue to it. We expected to wreck a few of them in the process, though, so all in all we're super happy with the end results (the ones that turned out great). Our library is hosting a group of teens who are attempting to break a world record, and they designed a logo for a t-shirt. All team members are wearing the shirts (logos ironed on beautifully) as they attempt the world record. Give yourself plenty of time to learn, and a couple extra for the learning curve, and you should be happy in the end.

                                      The Avery Transfer Paper requires either software to flip the image or the printer to flip it.

                                      Yes, the image needs to be flipped before applying it to the transfer paper. This can either be done using a feature built-in to some printers, or with imaging software programs.

                                      I start at a corner and then slowly start to tear just like an 1/8 of an inch. the paper tears but the image does not. then just peel away.

                                      Product AVE3271 is a better fit for light-colored material. The product page has a video detailing the printing and ironing process.
