I believe Durabrite on regular transfer paper would work fine.

However, dye sublimation is a better print technology, so if you're printing on a light colour it might be worth seeing if you can get someone to supply you with some printed dye sublimation transfers that you can apply.

Dye-sub has fantastic results on 100% poly. You just can't dye lighter so your transfer colors need to be lighter than the fabric color.
