Default One more way to transfer a pattern

I was going to use Barb's wintergreen oil for my latest project but I didn't have the oil or a laser printer and was too impatient to wait until I had everything ready. I had some ink jet t-shirt transfer paper and decided to give it a try. I printed out my pattern (text) and ironed onto the wood with an iron on the high (cotton) setting. It worked well for my needs but Barb's technique is MUCH less expensive. Three sheets of the t-shirt transfer paper was almost $10 at my local craft store.

OUCH but a good backup technique, Oliver. Ya know, inkjet is water based.
There HAS to be a way to get it to transfer easier that the iron. I'm gonna
do some searching. Inkjet doesn't get hot like laser... It's water-based and
smears when wet... DAMNIT!!! It WILL come to me if I gotta dig all the way
to China!!! UUUUUUUUUGH!!!!!!

I tried the T-shirt transfer long ago, and it just flat didn't work for me. Think I've still got some floating around here somewhere.

Believe it or not, it wasn't plywood I tried it on.
