Default making shirt by ironinng on image from comp.

hey, i was wondering if anyone on here has made shirts by printing an image or words off the computer on special paper, and then ironing it to a shirt? i tried it and it made a yellowish box around the text i had.

P.S.-its a fishing shirt with our name and stuff on it

nevermind, i think that what i am seeing when i iron it is the dirt in the shirt, or how the shirt is faded, because it is like a yellow square where the paper was

I've had good luck with new shirts. I get them on sale from Michaels craft shops. They last awhile. I use Averyon an Epson printer.
