Default new milford opaque transfer paper (blue grid)

Hello all,

I've read many of your posts and watched badalou's videos on YouTube and cannot find an answer to this question yet.

I have a question about the blue grid, one step opaque paper, from newmilford. For any of you that are familiar with this transfer paper, do you notice a "plasticky" feel to the transfer after you've pressed it? I have washed my "practice shirt" 4 times now and the image looks great, no cracks, no bleeding, just a plastic feel.

I know that with the IronAll transfers, many of you recommend stretching it immediately after pressing. Is the opaque, one step similar? Should I stretch the shirt directly after pressing it to get a softer hand .

I am pressing the shirt at 350 degrees and at medium pressure. Wasn't sure if that had an effect on it either.

I also had a quick question about IronAll transfers. Has anyone tried pressing both sides of a t-shirt with an IronAll transfer? Does the 1st image "brown" or "burn"? I'm not planning on making many double sided shirts at this point, but was looking a for few tips before sacrificing my new IronAlls.

Thanks for any, and all, help,

Toaster

I think the plastic-y feel is just the nature of the opaque transfers.
