Instructions for iron-on transfer.  I used this method successfully with my AVERY transfer paper.  I searched their site but couldn't find these after I lost the instructions that came with the package.  So, I found these on the web but in doc format from www.taxpayerbillofrights.com.  So thanks to them and a little bit of me they are in html.  Oh, and remember to reverse your image so you can read it in a mirror.  

===================================================

Make sure that you are using in INKJET printer. Laser printers will not work for these t-shirts. Insert an AVERY FABRIC TRANSFER sheet into your printer. Make sure that the blank side of the sheet is the one that the image will be printed on. You can cut out the image if you wish. 

DO NOT USE AN IRONING BOARD; use a HARD surface when ironing. Fold the pillow case in half, and place it on top of the hard surface that you will be ironing. Then, place the T-Shirt on top of the pillowcase, and center the sheet that you just printed.

Wait for your iron to fully heat up, and ensure that you ARE NOT using steam! If you use steam, it is more than likely that your shirt will not come out. Once the iron is fully heated, place it on one spot, and hold it there for twenty seconds. Then, move it to a spot adjacent to the one you just finished, overlapping just a little. After you have ironed the entire image, pull up a small corner of the image sheet. If the image appears to be transferring correctly, continue to remove the entire sheet. If not, repeat the ironing process until the image is transferring correctly. If you are doing a double sided t-shirt, wait for the first side to cool down, and then place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt to ensure that the first image is not melted.

Avery suggests that you wash your garment before wearing. However, it is completely up to you. I have worn my t-shirts almost immediately after they cooled, and they were fine.

When you wash your new t-shirt for the first time, it is essential that you follow every step to ensure that your shirt will not peel away. In addition to the instructions below, I have found that using fabric softener wears out the t-shirt faster, so if possible, DO NOT USE FABRIC SOFTENER.
