The Graphics Lab

T-shirt Press

The Graphics Lab has a t-shirt press, but no longer has a color copier with the ability to make t-shirt transfers. However, if you have access to a Cricut machine -OR- an Ink Jet Printer (the district only supports LaserJet), then you can buy t-shirt transfers from Michael’s or Joann’s & print them on an Ink Jet Printer (rollers are low heat and won’t melt the transfers). There are two kinds of transfers: One for white t-shirts – image must be reverse printed (words look backwards) and then when it’s pressed onto t-shirt it looks correct. The other one is for dark t-shirts – image is printed regular (words are readable) and acts like a thin patch on the t-shirt. Bring printed transfers to the Graphics Lab to heat set onto t-shirts (bring your own shirts OR we have a bunch of white t-shirts ranging from $2 – $5 depending on size). No charge for using the heat press and it’s WAY easier than using an iron!
