Getting your girlfriend a gift that you pick off the rack is easy but giving her one that you have put your heart and soul into can make the day and the gift oh-so-special for her; one that she will remember for years to come. Here’s something that might just appeal you. Gift a T-shirt to her with a collage of some of the best pics you ever shot with your girlfriend imprinted on it. Also have a nice love note just underneath the imprinted collage. What say?
Wonder how it can be done at home?
Well, to make a collage is nothing big. There are software readily available, with which you can do so in no time at all. You can deploy anyone of them on your computer, and after a certain degree of hit-and-trial, you can easily create one with utter ease. You can also refer to online sources such as this to make the job a bit easier. Yet, to imprint it on a T-shirt on your own, that too at your home is the real deal. To unfold the suspense here is the thing. The secret lies in the printer that you require and a special type of paper called the “Transfer Paper” on which the printout needs to go. Once the Transfer Paper has the printout, all you need to do is to iron it on the T-shirt and your design gets imprinted on it.
And how much would it cost
After reading all this, the first thing that would come to your mind is, gosh! This printer-paper combo must be really expensive. However, to your surprise, it is not really the case. There are printers that are priced less that $100 that can print on this Transfer Paper, just like they can print on a normal paper. Even the paper under discussion is not that expensive. Normally sold in packs of various sizes, per paper cost varies between half-a-dollar to three dollars.
And what if I am scarce of resources required
You surely have a computer at home, don’t you? In case you don’t have the required printer, or in case you are unable to locate the Transfer Paper vendor off-line, there are various online vendors who can help you with this. You can select the T-shirt online, upload the collage, and make the payment online and the T-shirt will be delivered at your doorstep for no extra cost.
So, this valentine’s let your creativity take a ride and make your girl the happiest in this world.
