  1. 1

    Place a sheet of iron-on transfer paper into your printer's paper feeder. Put it in with the filmy side of the paper facing downward.

  2. 2

    Open your computer's paint or photo editing software. Start a new, blank template. Use the text tool to create your initials or words in large, coloured font. Center the image in the print preview option of the template and print it out on the paper. Cut around the design you created.

  3. 3

    Remove the film from the surface of your design and place it sticky-side down on the part of your Speedo that you want to customise. This can be the front, back or sides or wherever you choose.

  4. 4

    Plug in the iron and let it heat for five minutes. Press it firmly to the back of the applied transfer paper and use upward strokes to embed it into the fabric of your briefs. Unplug the iron and let the briefs sit and cool for five minutes.

  5. 5

    Peel away the paper backing to reveal the fresh transfer of the custom print you have created on your Speedo swim briefs.

Tips and warnings

  • Use fabric paint as an alternative to iron-on transfer paper. You can handwrite by using fabric paint tubes, or use stencils to create designs.
