From the Manufacturer

Unlike regular transfers that only let you show off your creativity on white and light-colored materials, Avery 3279 Inkjet Dark T-Shirt Transfers are specially designed to work on dark-colored 100-percent cotton fabric. These transfers feed easily through most inkjet printers, and a special white layer helps your designs stand out against dark backgrounds. If you need design ideas, free templates and clip art images are available on avery.com to get you started personalizing T-shirts, hats, and tote bags. These unique, custom items make great gift items for family members, uniforms for sports teams, and everyday wear for creative kids.

I read a lot of good reviews and a lot of horrible reviews here, so I was very wary when using this product. There are some pitfalls that may get you, but if you are careful, you should be able achieve a beautiful result. I transferred images onto green shirts and got vibrant colors with no bleedthrough.

Assuming everyone followed instructions correctly, I think some of the problems people had might have been the result of either their printer or their iron. I happened to have access to an excellent high quality Epson R1800, 8 color, inkjet printer. If you have a low quality (or maybe just a different) printer it's possible that the colors might not end up as bright or as thick on the transfer. It's possible that even high quality printers might vary in how well they work with this particular product - I only have one data point, so I can only guess. Make sure you use the highest quality setting when you print! I did have one paper feed issue. One of my transfers got a little blurred on one end, apparently due to the transfer shifting position slightly while being printed. Luckily, it was not a critical part of the image.

I think some other problems people have described might have been the result of the iron temperature being too hot (bubbling) or not hot enough (peeling). I guess irons can vary. I think the hottest setting of my iron might have been just a little on the cool side. I found that I got better results by increasing ironing time. I got no bubbling or burning. If you're seeing bubbling, you might want to turn the iron temp down slightly or decrease ironing time. If at all possible, you should print several testing pieces and practice ironing them on scrap fabric first (I used an old shirt from the rag box).

I bought these t-shirt transfers after wasting time, money and t-shirts using other brands and even the Avery brand for white t-shirts were horrible. They smeared and when washed once the image was faded beyond recognition.

A friend recommended these (even for white t-shirt use) and they are amazing. They look completely professional, are easy to use and I have washed the items a million times and no fading has occurred at all. In my opinion, using any other brand is a waste. These are worth every extra penny you spend more than the kind designated for white t-shirts.

Some people are saying that the colors bleed through dark colored shirts but this only happens when you're applying too much heat or applying the heat for too long.

I know this because I ironed on a larger image, but incidentally I ironed the print unevenly. The outside boarders had the original color of the print rather than colors that bled.

I recommend either turning down the heat a bit or ironing the image more rapidly.

Good luck and happy printing/ironing.

I purchased this product along with the light and stretchy versions from Avery. I also purchased the Transformations version from a local craft store. After pre-washing a shirt, I printed the same design on all five transfers and applied them as per the instructions to the same shirt. I then waited the 24 hours it suggests before washing, and washed and dried the shirt with other laundry, regular cycle. The Avery products held up the best, the light and dark held their colors better than the stretchy version did, and the Transformations product was just a mess.

I created 15 shirts using the light, and 2 using the dark, all on white shirts. They work just as well on light shirts as they do dark, but the light has more per pack, so unless you are using a colored shirt, the light version is a better buy.

It has been 11 months now, and we are planning our next family vacation, so I just went out and purchased another 3 packs of the dark transfer paper as we are using blue shirts this year. I happened to come across last years shirts, which prompted this review. They still look fantastic. Mind you, the ripples and discoloration on the avery shirt is human error (left), when doing a full-size iron on to the back of a shirt that has a pocket on the front, you need to take extra precautions to put ample cardboard inside the shirt so you don't inadvertently push too hard on the other side of the pocket. The Transformations shirt (right) looks like garbage.

[...]

I do suggest a practice shirt, and they sell half sheets, so start with something small until you get the hang of it. I only did the one practice shirt, so I don't get why people are wasting 2-5 shirts and transfers to get the hang of it.

I have used the Avery transfers for white/light before with good luck on a white shirt. So, now I've tried this to put transfers on dark color shirts. They worked ok. The color of the shirt shows through the lighter colors on my design, so the colors are "off" from what I wanted. And the colors are a little dull. But I had no problem with the transfer itself and it went through one wash/dry well. For comparison, I tried the white/light transfer on the same dark color to comare, and the colors did turn out better with the dark transfer paper. I haven't used any other transfer paper on dark colors for comparison, but I was a little disappointed in the performance, but it's acceptable.
