T-Shirt Design Software for Mac

Make Your Own Custom T-Shirts and Other Iron On Transfer Crafts


You can use almost any graphics or creative printing program to design iron on transfer artwork. Ideally the program will have an option to flip or reverse the image for transfer printing or you can manually flip the image in the document. However, there are some t-shirt design software programs specifically for creating personalized t-shirt designs and similar iron on transfer craft projects. These programs are for the Mac platform.

The label people have some design software for Mac that does labels, yes, but also iron-on transfers for t-shirts, greeting cards, business cards, and more. Import personal photos from iPhoto. It's for Mac OS X Tiger or Leopard.  Oh, and it's also a FREE download.
