Pattern Press include Iron on transfers in many of its published patterns. Where a transfer is included a black and white lightbox or master copy is also included for extra tracing or reference whilst stitching. Each transfer can be used up to 4 times (more if transferred lightly) and will not wash out of cotton fabric so the method of transfer must be followed. If done correctly very fine lines suitable to single thread stitching is acheivable.
The following instructions are included on every transfer sheet:
The transfers use a special ink. They will transfer several times onto 100% cotton fabric. They will also iron onto Polyester and poly/cottons.
Place printed side down onto fabric
(we recommend prewashing your fabric to remove any chemicals)
Use the transfer test on your sheet to determine your iron heat setting and pressing time as all irons differ.
Press firmly with dry iron for 5-10seconds. A hard or firm surface is best. If your ironing board is soft use a thin towel on a hard bench surface or similar.
Do not slide iron, lift gently and reposition. Sliding will slightly move your transfer sheet and make your lines thicker or even blurred.
Lift corner of paper to check before removing transfer sheet from material. The longer you press the darker the transfer.
Ink may wash out of 100% cotton fabric however we do not guarantee this due to chemicals used in many fabrics. I have not been able to completely remove the ink from any fabric yet although it will fade with repeated washings so follow the process carefully so that your lines will be as thin as the originals.
They will be permanent on fabric with any poly content
Correctly transferred fine lines are easily covered by a single strand of stitching thread.
Note that the transfer paper appears black but will transfer as a grey/blue colour onto your fabric.
Iron On transfer printing service
This service is offered by Pattern Press to businesses in the Stitching industry to obtain cost effective transfer sheets for inclusion in paper patterns.

The printing process uses a special transfer ink on A4 White 80gsm copy paper. It will transfer several times onto cotton or polyester/synthetic fabrics. It may wash out of some cotton fabrics but this is not guaranteed. The current colour used is Quilters Blue – a blue grey colour.

We recommend drawing with a .03 or .01 black pigma pen for fine clean lines or using a 1pt stroke in computer based drawing programmes.
Each transfer sheet will included transfer instructions and your business logo. This must be supplied in black and white printable format also if you wish it to be included. Copyright will also be added with your business or Copyright holders name and year of design.
