Default 3-g paper question

Applied 3G transfer paper with a blk background on a blk shirt and you can still see the outline of the transfer. What do I need to do different so there isnt a visable hard line? Do I need to use a different paper or is there a technic that will help hide the hard line?

Cutting around it is probably the only solution. If you have an inkjet printer then I recommend Image Clip Laser Dark - it is self-weeding so leaves no background polymer.

Tgal, I was under the impression you had to used a laser printer / toner type ink and something about a negitive. I would like more information on how to use it. Have you use it yourself and with an inkjet ?
Thanks for everones help.

I have heard that kiss cut paper is the best for inkjet but, it's a very tricky precise process and they say you need to use their inks.
After you wash them around 10-12 times the image start cracking and pealing although the colours stays strong!

No it's only for darks, definatly not for whites but, you can buy foils from them and heat press them on top of the weeded design.
That's the only way they would work on darks and only in block colours but you may be better off using vinyl and I have no idea of the results.
