How Do I Create My Christmas Jumper?


Step 1:

First you’ll need to download and print your preferred design, make sure you have enough ink left in your printer, and ensure that you have a T-shirt or Jumper ready to transfer the design onto.


Step 2:

Turn on your printer and take out all of the paper in the tray, you can now replace this with T-Shirt Printing Paper.

Every printer is different, so make sure that the paper is the right way up for YOUR printer. You will need to Load the transfer paper so that the blank side receives the image.


Step 3:

Now that your design has printed onto your T-shirt Transfer Paper, you can go ahead and cut around your design. Next lay your Tshirt or Jumper flat onto an ironing board. Switch on your iron and let it get hot. Now, place the Transfer Paper image side down onto the fabric. You can now Iron over the back of the paper, transferring your design onto the material.

Top tip: Once you have placed your design face down onto your T-shirt or Jumper, lay a dry tea towel over the back of the paper before ironing over the back of your design. Having a tea towel sandwiched between your paper and the iron will stop anything from burning.

Iron for up to a minute, taking your time to cover the whole back side of the design


Step 4:

Remove the iron, switch it off at the wall and carefully peel the paper off of your Jumper or T-shirt revealing your finished design.


Step 5:

Wait for the transfer to cool and try your new Christmas Jumper or T-shirt on. Take a photo of your finished design and share it with us on Facebook or Instagram

Top tip: When washing your garment, make sure you turn it inside out so that the printed image is on the inside, this will lessen the chance of the image cracking or peeling. Wash on a low heat.

Printing Your Photos At Home: An Affordable And Reliable Option

We’re now taking more photos than ever before; it is estimated that by the end of 2019, as a society, we will have taken over 1 trillion photos. With the majority of people capturing images on their smart phones so that they can share memories and moments instantly, the option to print photos from the comfort of your own home has become an increasingly popular option.

Companies such as HP and Fujifilm have created products which allow people to print images on a small scale anytime, anyplace and straight from their pocket. But what happens when you want to print larger images that you can frame, share with friends or print at a greater volume? This is where your home printer can help!

Should I print my own photos?

There are many online photo printing companies and although they can be a great option, they can take anywhere from a couple of days to a week to print and send your order, this can be costly and there is no guarantee that your images will come back how you expected. Printing your own photos is not only cost effective, it’s almost fool proof too.

Many people consider a printer to be an investment, as the world of home printing can open many doors for those of us who want ease and efficiency.

The process of uploading and sending your images to a second party leaves opportunity for mishap during the printing process including image pixilation and poor production value.

If you want a quick turnaround and the ability to manage the quality, sizing and quantity of your images, using your home printer is the most practical option. 


How to print photos at home?

We know that printing your photos at home is an easy and quick option, but it’s essential to have the right materials before you start printing. You’ll need to have good quality photo printing paper, a guillotine or a pair of scissors, and a printer. Make sure your printer has enough ink before you begin!

For PC users, Windows 10 features a very good in-built photo printing tool, making it easy to print any image stored on your computer at the click of a few buttons. You can easily change settings for paper type, image size, print quality and much more from here.

You can also place your images into a word document and change the size to suit you, or you can use a template which will guide you on the correct image size, ensuring that no paper or ink is wasted in the process.

Many people also use the Piccollage app or similar (Available for iPhone, Android or Microsoft Store for free) to create a selection of snapshots or memories organised on one page for printing.

If photo printing at home is something you wish to get the best out of in the future, we recommend spending a little more on a high quality printer that can use several individually coloured cartridges. Canon have always been popular with photo enthusiasts due to their use of specialist grey and photo colour cartridges.


If you would like advice on printing your own images at home, or any other printing queries, please get in touch and one of our experts will be happy to help.

3 Common Printer Problems and How To Fix Them

It’s very common and frustrating to run into issues with your printer. Just when you thought you were back up and running, your printer malfunctions and stops working again.

We’ve rounded up 3 of the most common printing issues and solutions to get you back to printing in no time.


Leaking Ink Cartridges

Ink cartridges contain pressurised liquid and naturally this means they can be at risk of leaking from time to time. However, there are some precautions that can be taken to minimise the risk of ink leaking when opening and installing your new ink cartridges.

The main reason that an ink cartridge might leak, is when the nozzle cover is removed before the pull strip is taken off. You must ensure that where the cartridge features one, the pull strip is removed prior to the nozzle cover as this will allow the cartridge to release any pressure inside the ink chamber. If the nozzle cover is removed first, pressure is instantly released through the nozzles and this is when ink is likely to find an escape route!

Although cartridges might suffer agitation during their shipment to you, it is rare that any damage or leakage will occur. Please do not attempt to install any cartridge that looks like it has leaked in transit. Do get in touch with our friendly support team straight away and we’ll be happy to send out a replacement.

We also recommend opening ink cartridges in a careful and controlled manner, away from any expensive rugs or clothing and not above your open printer as even when opened correctly, there is still a small risk! See our previous blog post for more help on cleaning up any ink spillages.


Blocked Print Head (Poor Print Quality)

If your documents are printing streaky, faded or have missing text, the chances are your printhead is either blocked by a minute amount of dried or congealed ink or there could be a small air bubble in the system. This can occur for several reasons and can happen regardless of the type of ink cartridges you are using.

To unclog your print head, we recommend you run the ‘nozzle check’ or ‘print quality’ tool first as this provides the best indication of the problem. If the test pattern features missing print in a certain colour, this also indicates the cartridge or nozzle that has the blockage.

The ‘clean printhead’ or ‘head clean’ function can then be performed from your laptop, computer or direct from the printer tools or maintenance menu. After completion, we recommend printing the nozzle test sheet again in order to compare the results. Some printers will prompt you to do this before asking if you’d like to run another head clean. Alternatively if the results are improved, you can end the process at this point.

If your print quality is not improved by 3 consecutive head cleans then a deep routed blockage may be causing the problem. Some printers feature a ‘deep clean’ tool which we only recommend using once if the regular clean fails to show any improvement (due to the high volume of ink used and heat generated during the process).

See our blog post on How to Fix Blocked Print Heads for further details on the possible causes, preventions and fixes to this particular problem.


Low Ink Error Message

If you’re using remanufactured ink cartridges, you might find that an error such as ‘low ink’ or ‘replace ink’ occurs, even straight after installation. This is because the chip on your ink cartridge is reporting low ink from the previous use before being remanufactured.

Because the chip can’t be reset on these cartridges, it will register as empty even after it has been remanufactured, refilled and installed in your printer.

This issue can generally be resolved by holding down the resume button (commonly the button featuring a circle within a triangle) on your printer for anywhere up to 20 seconds until you can hear internal movement. Overriding the ink monitor can vary depending on the printer that you have so this may not work for you. Again, please contact us if you believe this is affecting your cartridge and the fix above doesn’t work.

This is perfectly normal and unfortunately is one of the downsides to using a Remanufactured Ink Cartridge. If this is a reoccurring issue that is getting in the way of your printing and day to day tasks, we suggest using genuine OEM ink cartridges where ink monitoring is available. These cartridges can also be easily recycled so jump over to our recycling page for more information.



Printing issues can prevent your productivity and cause troubles with day to day tasks, with the problems outlined above being the 3 most common issues we receive queries about. If you have a specific printing problem you’d like us to cover in a future blog post, please don’t hesitate to let us know!

If you find yourself having printer problems, get in touch with us and one of our experts will assist you in getting back to printing.

Happy Halloween From INKredible


Happy Halloween From INKredible

Happy Halloween From INKredible

Steph here, one of Inkredible’s customer service team.

Halloween is one of my most favourite times of the year when we can express our creative traits and personalities. The million-pound question is what is your costume this year? Have you been inspired by recent box office films such as the creepy movie IT 2, or have you opted for a classic character like Frankenstein’s Monster. There is so much material to base our spooky themes on, but what is interesting to know is how this all came about.

The Celts, who originated 2000 years ago, believed that when summer met winter, the division between this world and the otherworld was at its thinnest allowing souls to pass through. This was known as the festival of Samahin and was celebrated by honouring Ancestors on the night of the 31st of October. Food was prepared and huge bonfires were lit in memory of them.

It was believed that harmful spirits also passed through this breach, so people wore costumes to disguise themselves from the ghastly monsters.

In light of the origin of Halloween, we have tasked our cutest ‘trick or treater’ to warn off some unwanted guests in our Darlington warehouse. These 8-legged residents do give a couple of our Inkredible packers a scare when hiding under pallets.

Print Your Own Halloween Masks

Halloween Mask Printables

Print Your Own Halloween Masks

After you've printed your favorite design to create a spooky Halloween Candle, why not complete your frightening look by downloading and printing our creepy Halloween masks!

We have 4 pre-coloured designs to choose from, in both full mask and eye mask variations depending on what you prefer. To keep the kids busy, we've also included each design in Black and White, so get the felt tips out and let their creativity run wild!

Simply click the download link below, print out the masks you desire, cut them out and attach some elastic through the holes at each side. Alternatively you can attach some old lolly sticks to use them as hand-held masks.

We recommend printing the pre-coloured masks on your printers 'high quality' setting whereas the Black and White uncoloured masks should be fine on a standard print setting.

We'd also use either 130gsm or 190gsm Matt Photo Paper for the best quality possible. This also provides greater strength than standard 80gsm printer paper and the mask is likely to last that little bit longer.

Halloween Colouring Sheet

If you've already downloaded and printed our Halloween Part Invites and plan on having a houseful of kids after 'trick or treating', why not hand out our Halloween themed colouring sheet to keep them quiet while you have a well deserved cuppa!
