Take anything you print on an INK JET PRINTER and with a home iron or heat press, transfer the image to fabric, clothing, wood and most porous surfaces.
This is very neat stuff - Anyone with a computer and access to an ink jet printer should try this. You just put the paper into the printer and print. Then iron onto cotton or cotton/poly fabric*. If you are in production, seriously consider a heat press because it will save a lot of time and do an even better job. After that, it's washable and permanent. It's great fun and unlimited in what you can create. T-shirts and clothing are obvious, but try picture quilts, or team uniforms and sports stuff like caps, wherever silkscreening is not practical.
*It transfers best onto 100% cotton or cotton/poly blends or 100% polyester. It can be used on silk, but the transfer has a rather "plasticy" feel for a delicate fabric like silk. For fabrics like nylon, great care must be taken because the heat of the iron may shrink the actual fabric and make the transfer look funky (shrunken at the edges). For cottons, rayons, hemp, etc, it is always important to pre-shrink anything that is going to ever be washed before applying transfers.
Note: With this paper, any part of your image that is blank, white, or lightly colored will allow the color of the fabric you print on to show through. Try our Opaque Inkjet Transfer Paper if you don't want the fabric color to show through!

This paper was formulated to use with dye-based inks. Some of the new pigment Inks, like Epson Durabright, are causing strange results after the paper is heated, such as a distinctive green cast. Always test!
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 violet stripe along the back of each sheet.

Some newer pigment based inks may react differently with various transfer papers, causing color shifts after heat setting. As always we recommend testing products, processes, and techniques before you start a large project.
