T-Shirt on demand

My daughter wanted a special T-Shirt for a sorority event – they are very involved with several charities throughout the year. She found a picture online and asked me to whip one up! Ha ha ha, I said. But I did it anyway. And since I was working on vinyl and getting the heat press all warmed up, I also made a T for me. I was absolutely amazed at how tiny I could get the letters to cut.

Steps:

  1. Create the design in MTC.

  3. Cut the design using the recommended blade and settings.
  4. Weed the excess HTV.
