How to add text to your item

I use to add lyrics to my felt board. I print the text on a special paper (you can buy it from like I did or from other supplier) and then I use the iron to transfer the writing on the felt. You can transfer in this way a text or pictures. If you go online on Avery, you'll find some templates and texts.

You need: special paper for printing, felt or a T-shirt or something else where you want to appear your text / picture, and an iron.

In Word:
-type the text 
-choose the size paper to be Hagaki card or Japanese Postcard (100 x 148 mm) if you want to print a small piece (like a normal Thank you card for example) not the whole sheet of paper
-for the first time use a normal paper to print the text and to check if everything is OK
-then insert the special paper, but first set your printer: go in Printer Properties, choose Finishig tab, mark Mirror Image - in this way your text will appear inverted; then print it. 

Place your special paper on the felt up side down.

Set your iron - no steam and then press on the paper for 40 seconds.

Peel the paper. The text will appear on the felt.

Cut and sew the text.


Enjoy it.
