Create your own Design Squad T-shirts using an inkjet printer, iron-on transfer paper, and a downloadable logo below.

Pre-made Design Squad T-shirts are available for purchase at

Here's how to make your own Design Squad t-shirts!

  1. Purchase iron-on transfer paper at a craft or office supply store (We like HP and Epson brands and suggest using light or white colored t-shirts.)
  2. Read the directions that come with the transfer paper and check the features of your inkjet printer to determine whether to use the right-reading or reversed/mirror image. Do a test-run first to ensure you're set up correctly.
  3. If you are printing in color, adjust your printer settings to get the most accurate image color. (On our printer, the "graphic" setting worked best.) Do a test-run to find optimal color.

Have some fun and be creative! Consider personalizing t-shirts by ironing or writing names onto the back.
