  • Injet Tranfer Papers – Waste of time? or getting better?

    Posted by dannymac on September 17, 2004 at 10:35 am

    Hi there,

    Im currently a screenprinter, mainly printing plastisol inks onto cotton. However Im looking to find a cheap solution for printing small run transfers onto tshirts.

    I dont really want to go down the sublimation route, as all my stock is 100% cotton (dont you need a polyester content for that to work?) and sounds like I’d need to invest too much for it to be worth it.
    So I wondered if anyone has any advice on the inkjet transfer papers you get (for light and dark fabrics) I’ve bought a few brands and some seem better than others, especially if you use a heat press rather than an iron, but none are really that acceptable.
    Does anyone have any experience with these? and does anyone know of any products out there that give a professional result?

    Might be worth looking at the colour laser stuff too, I use Magic Touch papers with a Panasonic laser printer and results are good. It is posible to print onto a special white vinyl(?) for coloured shirts. Magic Touch can give you chapter and verse on all the different papers and materials to print on available – virtually all require a heat press.
