Thanks to Cammy Rapson, who has made a brilliant logo for the campaign, you can now make a t-shirt or whatever you want. Here’s what to do…
Using a local print-shop
- Download the following file to a USB stick and take it to a local print shop, alternatively email the file (or the link to this page) to the print shop and they’ll be able to download it. Hi-Res_SMMT_logo.
- Make sure they know that the file is a .png file (with transparency layer) – a professional print shop should recognise this. I forgot to mention this to the print shop I used today and it all seemed to work out well.
- The going (Edinburgh) rate for a T-shirt seems to be £10 for 24-hour turnaround and £14 for 30-minute turnaround.
Print your own
I’ve never tried this and have no idea how good the results are but, if you have access to a colour inkjet printer then this may be an option. Here goes….
- Get hold of some “Inkjet transfer paper”, it may be available locally but not sure. A quick google search reveals the following results.
- Download the Hi-Res_SMMT_logo
- Follow the instructions given by the manufacturer of the transfer paper on how to prepare your file. This will probably involve flipping the image horizontally on your computer before printing – but please check! If you have any difficulty doing this please let me know on facebook and I’ll upload a flipped image.
- Pretty sure that you iron-on the printed image onto whatever item of clothing you have available.
