MLB (Major League Baseball) Iron-on transfers are a popular method for applying MLB designs, images, or text onto fabric using heat. Here's how they typically work:


Design Selection: You start by selecting or creating the MLB design you want to transfer onto your fabric. This could be anything from a MLB graphic or logo to text or a personalized image.

Printing: Once you have your design ready, you print it onto a special type of transfer paper using an inkjet or laser printer, depending on the type of transfer paper you're using. It's essential to mirror your MLB design horizontally before printing it onto the transfer paper, especially if your design includes text or any elements that would be reversed when transferred.

Preparation: Before you start ironing, make sure the fabric you're applying the MLB transfer to is clean and smooth. Iron out any wrinkles, and ensure the fabric is flat on a hard, heat-resistant surface.

Positioning: Place the printed transfer paper onto the fabric with the printed side facing down (the side with the design). Make sure it's centered and aligned correctly.

Ironing: Use a household iron set to the appropriate temperature for the fabric you're using (usually indicated on the MLB transfer paper packaging). Apply firm, even pressure with the iron over the entire design area for the recommended duration, usually around 30 seconds to a minute, depending on the specific instructions of the MLB transfer paper.

Cooling and Peeling: Allow the transfer to cool for a few seconds or as instructed by the transfer paper's guidelines. Then, carefully peel off the backing paper from the fabric. You should see your design transferred onto the fabric.

Finishing: Some MLB transfer papers may require you to cover the transferred design with a parchment paper or cloth before ironing again for added durability. This step helps set the design into the fabric and prevents it from fading or washing out prematurely.

Care: It's essential to follow the care instructions provided with the transfer paper. Typically, the transferred fabric can be washed inside out in cold water and dried on a low-heat setting to maintain the quality and longevity of the design.


MLB Iron-on transfers are commonly used for creating custom MLB T-shirts, tote bags, pillowcases, and other fabric-based crafts or projects. They offer a relatively simple and cost-effective way to add personalized MLB designs to textiles without the need for specialized equipment or skills. However, it's important to note that the quality and longevity of the transferred MLB design can vary depending on factors like the quality of the transfer paper, the type of fabric used, and the application technique.
