Putting Logo onto T Shirts

I managed to get the logo from the transfer paper ironed onto some T Shirts with some assistance from family. The overall result I feel was successful, although I was surprised  at how the process was done as this is the first time I’ve ever dealt with a method of T Shirt printing.

The shirts we ironed on the logo consisted of different colours.


Grey T Shirt try on for males.


Blue T Shirt try on for males.


Pink T Shirt try on for females.




Putting Logo onto Transfer Paper

I spent this morning setting up an already made logo which will be used to put onto Transfer Paper. Merrian-Webster defines the term as ‘a paper coated with a special preparation for transferring a design or imprint to another surface by heat, pressure, or moisture.’

Transfer Paper Logo

In Adobe Illustrator, I flipped the original logo over by going to Object > Transform > Reflect which reflected it 90 degrees. Before putting this onto transfer paper, we printed out on normal A4 paper for a trial run.

After some adjustments to make sure the logo wasn’t cut off during printing, the transfer paper printing begin and it turned out okay, taking only a matter of seconds to complete.


Here is how the logos looked printed on Transfer Paper.

Printing Logos and Putting on Shirts

The logos were printed out on a sheet of paper and separately cut out. My family assisted me throughout this process. This is a trial run to see if a logo would be suited to a shirt.

Here is a photo of some men’s shirts with the logo placed on the top right corner. In my opinion the logos are the correct size and blend well with the shirt colours.


This time we took a photo of some women’s shirts with the logo in the same place. As with the men’s shirts, the logos are the correct size and blend well.




Buying T Shirts and Logo Design

After ditching the Flappia and Gary shirt designs, I decided to take a different approach to the T shirt design. This morning I took a trip to Sports Direct in Isleworth and bought 6 polo shirts (x3 3xl shirts for boys) and (x3 medium shirts for girls).

Geeky Golf Logo

Next off I created another logo, this time making a shape similar to the putting green on a golf course. I like the design of this logo as it has content relating to golf (the colour white for the golf ball, green for grass and flag which you would find a golf hole).
