Tell the world how you feel with these easy ways to put your message on a shirt, bag, or whatever you want.

Hi, everyone! If you want to put the NMG slogan I created on a shirt, it’s super easy. All you will need is a shirt, scissors, an ordinary printer, an iron, and iron-on transfer paper that you can find at lots of stores such as Target or OfficeMax as well as craft and fabric stores such as Michael’s or JoAnn’s.
I got T-shirt transfer paper at OfficeMax. Any brand you get will be fine, too. Depending on the selection at your store, you can choose transfer papers for dark OR light-colored T-shirts. You can use the transfers for dark T-shirts on light shirts, too, so it might be smarter to get that transfer paper even if your shirt is light-colored. The instructions for all of them are very similar. Just be sure to read the instructions before beginning, and follow the instructions. Ask your parents for help if you’re not sure how to do it, or need permission to use an iron.
First, go to the NewMoon.com/transfers-and-stickers to choose the NMG transfer you want. You’ll see that you can pick my slogan in either a green or yellow background. Pick an image that is either normal or flipped. You’ll need the flipped image if your instructions call for the image to be flipped when you iron it on. Download the image you want, and print your image on the transfer paper. Follow any instructions about trimming the edges.
Now you should iron your shirt so it’s smooth. Then place the transfer onto the ironed shirt and iron as instructed.
When you’ve finished ironing, follow the instructions about removing the transfer paper backing. Be cautious about touching the paper when it’s really hot.
Let the shirt cool for a few minutes, and then you can put on your new NMG shirt!
