stamping on ron-on transfer sheets
has anyone ever stamped on iron on transfer sheets. i found a box of printer transfer sheets in my closet while cleaning it out. I was wondering if I tried stamping on them and transfering to a t shirt if it would work, but my main question is, do I stamp on the smooth side or the rougher side of the sheet?

I've used the Avery Ink Jet transfers and those work wonderfully. A few caveats:

1) Don't add too much ink to the transfer, because it will run when washed.

2) The ink will fade over time with washing...lighter colors will fade faster.

I have stamped with dye inks, sponged on ink and used waterbased markers. As long as you don't add too much ink, it works wonderfully. And if you are dissatisfied with the way you stamped them on the transfer, you can cut it apart and arrange it differently before you iron it on.

I find the Avery transfer work much better than any other brand, so I stick to them. Since you can't stamp words on the transfers (it would be reversed when you ironed it on), it's fun to print a quote or other phrase on your transfer using your printer, then stamp around it and add color to it before ironing it on your shirt.

And you add your stamping to the same side that the instructions tell you to print on.
