Iron Orchid Designs Decor Transfers $11.99 - $27.99
IOD / Iron Orchid Designs Decor Transfers are probably the most fun and instantly satisfying products they offer. You simply decide on placement, tape in place, remove protective back-sheet and begin rubbing (with tool provided). Find little air pockets to help the rubbing process along. By CAREFULLY lifting periodically, you can get small air bubbles and when you rub with the tool, you will hear a plastic sort-of sound. You will also see how the transfer appears more foggy on the carrier sheet - meaning that portion of the transfer is successfully released onto your project. Be sure to work in cool, dry spaces. You can place in fridge or freezer to easy release if you feel it may be a bit warm/humid to apply.
If you don't see your transfer as an option to buy, then we are out. It will appear again when in stock. Vintage IOD styles will slowly go away. When they sell out, we can not replace them.
Please plan buying 1 of any product. We can not sync our POS with the inventory on our cart. So, If a product shows up on the cart, we will have at least one in stock.

IOD Décor Transfers are a little delicate, need a little extra care, but are so worth it. With a little instruction, they are easy to use and add instant style to your projects. (Make sure to check out our new White Transfers for a beautiful design on your deeper richer colors! )
PREPARATION IS KEY.
Keep your transfer with its backing sheet until you are ready to apply. Keep free of dust or debris, which will interfere with adhesion. Do not allow the adhesive side of transfer to touch anything prior to application. When handling the transfer, avoid letting the adhesive side touch itself (don’t do in a windy environment). Do not store transfer in extreme temperatures or humid conditions, which can affect adhesion.
Start with a clean, dry, matte surface. If painted, make sure it’s well cured, and if you have sanded the paint make certain there is no residual dust. All of these things will interfere with adhesion.
Carefully remove the transfer from its white backing. Slowly and carefully lower the transfer onto your intended surface, making sure that it does not touch until the placement is correct. Use small pieces of low tack tape to hold it in place.
Using the provided tool, or one of your choice, start at one end of the transfer and rub firmly to adhere the image to the surface. Do this until the entire image is transferred. You are welcome for the free arm workout as well. If any parts aren’t transferred when you lift, simply lay it back down and rub more on that portion. After it is transferred, with a clean dry hand, smooth down any bits that aren’t flatly adhered.
We recommend sealing with a water based (or not harsh solvent based) sealer (waxes created for chalk type paints also work well if they don’t contain harsh solvents).
