This question can be taken 3 different ways, so I will give 3 different answers.
1) If you mean: How do I use my iron to transfer the image, (and I apologize if this is not what you meant), this product is not an image transfer product and is not used in this fashion. Instead, a photocopier is used to copy an image directly onto the fabric sheet, which is inserted into the paper feed tray of your copier.
2) If you mean: How do I iron the image once it has been photocopied onto this printable fabric and used in my specific craft application, the answer provided with the product advises the following: Use a simple household iron, preheated, set to medium or high heat, NO STEAM, and press entire area for 5 seconds. Reposition the iron as needed to press the entire area. From personal experience, I would advise waiting several hours after the image has been copied before ironing, and using an up-and-down pressing motion, NOT a side-to-side motion (the image might smear if not set properly). Understand that ironing will activate the glue side (glossy side) of this product, making it stick to whatever is underneath it (such as your ironing board cover!!); therefore you might need to consider a lightweight 100% cotton backing that can stick to the backside of this product when ironed.
3) If you mean: How do I activate the glue so that I can adhere my copied image onto something else (such as another fabric, cardboard, wood, or some other bondable surface), just follow the steps in answer #2.
