Have you seen the funny Contract faces the éS team has been wearing everywhere they go? éS Team Manager Tony Evjenth doesn't go anywhere without his Contract stencils, so come to one of the éS demos or contests this year and bring a T-shirt. You'll get your favorite éS team rider's face spray painted right on it for free! You can even get Tony to sign it!
In the meantime, you can follow these easy steps to make your own Contract face T-shirt—it's easy, check it out! Be sure to experiment with different colors, too—get creative and have fun!
A computer (duh).
A printer for your computer: most printers work fine, just check the instructions.
Ink jet T-shirt transfer paper (available at Staples or any office supply retailer. We recommend using Avery ink jet T-shirt transfer paper for this project).
Download your favorite éS Contract face to your desktop (on a PC, right click on the image and enter Save to Desktop).
Place the transfer sheet in your printer so that the blank side will be printed on. (On top loading printers, place the sheet with the blank side facing you. On front loading printers, place the sheet with the wax sheet facing you).
Print your transfer. Allow it to dry for a few minutes before handling.
Trim image, if necessary.
Have your mom iron it on for you, just to make sure you don't burn yourself. Place the T-shirt on a flat surface (like a dinner table, desk, or an ironing board if you're cool enough to have one). Position your transfer sheet face down onto the T-shirt. The wax paper side should be facing up at you. Iron for three minutes, applying firm pressure to the iron. The more pressure you apply, the better the image will appear, so press hard!
Peel the wax paper backing off when the image is cool (approximately two minutes).
For the first laundering, turn the shirt inside out, wash in cold water and tumble dry on a warm setting. Wear your homemade Contract Face shirt to any éS demo, contest, or appearance and get special éS gear from Tony and the éS team! Now go skate!
