Not all transfer paper is created equal. In fact, the differences are great. Some companies continue to produce old-fashioned t-shirt transfer paper with outdated technology. The biggest problem with the old technology is that is doesn't produce a durable product. Nothing is more aggravating than creating the perfect shirt or tote and having it ruined in the first wash. Current technology allows our transfer paper to last longer for better results.
Yes, your inkjet printer really create great iron-on transfers. For best results use pigment-based ink. You may have experienced leaving an inkjet photo in the sun only to have it fade quickly. Water-based ink fades more quickly. Using a pigment-based ink will increase the longevity of your finished product.
White or light colored Fabrics
The technique for applying to white or light colored fabric is slightly different than using opaque transfer paper for dark fabrics. To use our product for light fabrics, you will need to mirror or reverse your image when printing. Most publishing software includes this feature. This feature is also found in most printer drivers. Simply design your project on your computer, print the t-shirt transfer paper with your inkjet printer, then iron or heat press to your white or light colored garment. Peel the backing when it is hot for a matte finish or peel it cold for a satin finish.
Opaque Inkjet Iron Transfer Paper is your choice for decorating dark fabrics. Print your design as you normally print (not in mirrored or reverse mode) and iron onto the fabric. Our Printz line of opaque is perfect for decorating all those dark colored shirts, jeans sweatshirts and more.
