You must try the new and improved onesJun 10, 2007
They have a sticker on the packages saying the colors are brighter and they won't crack. I tried those first and they are beautiful. I bought some more, but they didn't have the sticker on them. Those must be what everyone here is reviewing. The old ones are indeed waxy with okay colors. I hope they don't peel like everyone says. But those improved ones are wonderful - brilliant colors and nice feel, not waxy at all. Trust me, there is a difference. I haven't washed the new improved ones yet, but they do look like they are durable and will withstand the wash. Wish there was a way to tell if the package we are getting from Amazon is new or old. I think the stock number is the same.
UPDATE: It has been an entire year since I've done some thirty or so transfers using various brands. Those new and improved Avery transfers are the best. One year later, through repeated washings, the new and improved ones still look bright and beautiful. The others are old and faded. Look carefully on the package. If they are new and improved Avery, that's the one you want.

Mine crumbled apart after one washing.Jul 02, 2007
I pre-washed my shirt. I tested my art by printing it out on a plain sheet of paper before using the iron-on sheet. The iron-on sheet came out looking great! I followed the instructions to transfer the image, and again, everything went perfect and looked great.
The trouble came when I washed the shirt. The transfer did not survive. It came out of a gentle wash cycle looking VERY crackled and even peeling off a bit. I was crushed. I wear my crackled shirt around the house, but it's not fit for the public. The dark shirt transfers seem to have gotten much better reviews, but I'm scared to try them because of how horrible this one came out.

It DOES CRACK, right AWAY! FOUR HOURS of work DOWN THE DRAIN!Jan 30, 2008
By Barbara L. Benac
I am sick. I just bought the package of the Avery transfer with that encouraging sticker, affixed it as per package directions (ironing with firm pressure for a very long time, allowing to cool before peeling, etc. )to some prewashed cotton muslin, and spent four hours and lots of money sewing the transfered picture into a luxurious fabric frame with lots of expensive trims, making a gorgeous pillow to give as a prize at an annual party I host for the volunteers and staff of the museum where I work. As I was finishing the last touch, I noticed the thing was already cracking off the fabric. It is RUINED. Where can I find a transfer paper that works? This is a disaster . Obviously, I advise all to steer absolutely clear of this product. What a dud!

Spectacular ProductAug 18, 2010
By M. Culver
I have used this product many times. T-shirts and quilts. As long as you iron the product to cure the ink, you should be fine. And when you wash your finished product you may want to air dry your garment. I never did, some of my items have lasted four years. Others have faded over time. Again, air drying your garment may save the fading of the ink. Great, great, great product.

I Think They're Lousy.Feb 08, 2007
By Kathryn VanLandingham
I wouldn't waste my money on these again. The transfer ironed on just fine, the paper backing peeled away smoothly, but there was a waxy, plastic like coating on the transfer itself. It felt stiff and unpleasant, but I thought maybe it would be better after washing. No such luck. Now the waxy coating is peeling and flaking off--the front of the T-shirt looks like a giant Frosted Flake.
I'm very disappointed with this product.
