Default I need some advice on inkjet transfers vs. laser jet transfers

After reading alot of heat transfering questions on these forums I have a few unanswered questions.

First off, i'm a screen printer. My only knowledge of heat transfers is when I was younger and I would put transfers on t-shirts with a hand iron.

I'm increasingly more and more curious with heat transfering. I would like to make some vintage style t-shirts for myself, but I don't want the shiney wax coating, discoloring clear boarders and cracking that home iron ons have.

I have an 11" x 17" Inkjet printer, and I'm looking for a heat press. But I have a few questions.

Is there a good inkjet transfer kind of like DuraCotton? I want a soft to the touch, non glossy, non crackable iron-on that looks good and last through washes. One that also transfers clear without cutting and discoloring boarders.

And lastly....whats the advantage of using oil based laser printed transfers over a good pigment inkjet transfer?

THANKS!
