Looking for an easy way to print transfer a logo or image? Don’t have time to get transfer paper? Did you know you can use… regular paper? Turns out there’s a pretty awesome method that just uses Acetone to transfer the ink!
Using a laser printer, print off your desired logo or image. Don’t forget to mirror it! Place the paper onto the material you would like to transfer the graphic to, face down. It works best on wood and cloth, but can also be done on metal, glass and even plastic!
Tape the corners so it doesn’t move around on you, and then get out the Acetone. Wet a cloth with it, and gently rub the back of the paper over the logo. Continue doing this and letting the paper dry until the ink has fully transferred. Once you’re done you’ll have a permanent ink transfer on your new material!
We’ve shared toner transfer methods before, which can aid in PCB fabrication, but we don’t think we’ve ever seen this method before — certainly a handy tool though!
