Default Transfer Paper Question - walmart paper versus commercial transfer paper

Ok, so I have a question...

Say you go down to your local walmart and you buy the 'iron-on' transfer paper...then you come home and iron it on. You get that nasty yellow look where the transfer paper was...

so now, say i buy a heat transfer press and commercial quality transfer paper. if i dont cut that close to my design, will i see the same result (the nasty yellow color from the xfer paper?)

I know this is probably a no brainer but before I get into this I would like to know.

Thanks all... you are all very helpful.

In my opinion, the commercial paper is much better than what you can get at Walmart. You need to cut the design out to eliminate any unwanted backround. The yellow area you refer to usually disappears after washing, but I cut all my designs to 1/8" so there is no extra backround paper. Hope that helps you out a bit!

It is pretty hard to give a shirt to someone and say "that yellow box will wash away". I trim the transfers. The duracotton paper just needs a second pressing and it will come right out on white shirts.

The funny thing about the paper at local retailers is it is more expensive to go there than to buy it from a commercial source and you get a better product.

I don't believe I suggested to tell anyone that the yellow box will wash away. It was merely a FYI for LoiterLLC.

I didn't suggest that. I suggested that a shirt with an unwanted yellow box or any other color is hard to explain away. That's all.

On a tan bag you probably had a bit of the outline showing. Was the bag an 806 topper. I use a ton of those. I pretty much keep m my cut (by hand) within 1/8 inch.

so the outline is normal? i used a topper 800 15 *16. this is one of the flat bags that really don't have the seams that bulge. ok, i will use the 1/8 as a rule of thumb. appreciate your help. i read some other that you submitted about bags, so i plan to get the pillow or big mouse pad to stick on the inside when i press.

thanks again.

Yes the outline is normal. Yes if you have an office depot near you or a Fry's they both sell the large mouse pad. I think I saw them on Ebay as well. I got a couple and then cut one up for other uses such as placement in a pocket to do transfers without having the pocket seam get in the way of the press.
