We have about 300 pieces of Opaque paper that is about 8 months old. We've used it in several tests and there was no obvious difference between the fresh Opaque papers and these. Rather than simply recycling something that could be useful we thought we'd offer it at a discounted price. We love transfer paper, but 300+ sheets is a bit much for us to use up on our own!
This product is your first choice for transferring images onto dark fabrics. Take any image on your computer, print it on this paper with your inkjet printer, then press the image onto a pre-shrunk shirt or other clothing item and voilla! Unlike our basic transfer paper, Opaque paper always works much better with our great new discounted heat presses, so if you are in production, we highly recommend you get a press! It could change your life! Easy and lots of fun! This paper requires lots of heat and pressure, and home irons just don't do it very well.
Allows you to put white or color images on black or dark fabrics and not have the fabric show through. (Our other Inkjet Transfer Paper allows the fabric color to show through the blank or light areas of your image.) This paper has an opaque white background so nothing shows through. Any area of your image that is not printed upon will remain white. Therefore, it's best to trim your print close to the image if you don't want a white background or border. Works great on all of our black stuff.
Please note that transfer paper DOES have a shelf life; it lasts about 6 months depending upon storage. It must be kept sealed in its plastic bag. High humidity or dry conditions can shorten its shelf life.
It is also handy to know that this paper can be distinguished from other types by it's blue stripe along the back of each sheet.
