That means that there may be, at some point.

For print on demand type deals, I'm not sure if any of the stuff igorsk linked to is better or not. I just know that the quality of stuff that Cafe Press produces isn't very good. Nothing like an actual screen printed shirt.

I got a custom t-shirt made some years ago from tshirts.com that has held up very well, it's got about an 8X10 (inches) graphic on it.

'Course, they only do t-shirts.

You can buy 'transfer paper' that you use in an inkjet printer and apply with a hot iron on a white tshirt. Remember to mirror image your graphic before printing.

What about iron on transfers for a color laser printer? Do such exist?

If we can get a nice, clear image, we can print them to iron-on transfer blanks (I've seen them at craft stores and office supply houses), and then iron the logo on anything we wish.

This contest, simply put, was rigged. I really dont want to have to say it, but it was.

I know some people out there are probably going to call me a poor looser so I am going to honestly speak my mind. The logo that won was very creative, visually intriguing and well deserved. The tagline hit the nail on the head, and the two combined, will forge an effective, attractive face to mobileread.

But one cannot deny that the contest was so poorly held. Fake members, who ironically joined at the last minute, voted for themselves, and put all other entires who were fair and square about this contest, at an unfair disadvantage. The contestants didn't get to choose which ones of their logos they wanted to display (if they had multiple entires), and if they were displayed at all, they were converted to black and white. This makes no sense, because the color logo would be the logo everyone sees on the header. Further, many entries were made smaller, giving other contestants a visual advantage.

I dont care what anyone says about me or this post, but I know that many will agree with me when I say that it was simply unfair that other contestants influenced the course of the contest.

To those who didnt sign up fake members, or family and friends, congratulations on your entry. There were many high quality, creative entries.

We did take into account people joining just to vote and the winner was picked very fairly.

While the link you gave did work, the problem is the link after that about the laser transfers did not work. And all the other laser transfer links were either to some printer or some special toner.

What I am looking for is iron on transfer paper that will work with any color laser printer without any special toner or gizmo.

If it's any small consolation to you....I voted for your design! I reviewed all the designs as they were presented and when I was ready to vote I voted for yours because I thought it was very cute.

I'm sorry your design did not win. I'm a moderator at a different forum that has contests like this one and it is challenging to pick a winner when you are evaluating creative work product. I'm sure there were folks who tried to rig the voting, but I am also sure that the webmaster and the moderators filtered out most of those votes and made their best effort to pick the forum members' choice.
