Default Self weeding Inkjet paper

Is anyone using self weeding inkjet paper? My shirts come out very low end and cheap looking, but once in a while one comes thru with little to no plastic window. I just press and peal but am reading I should repress after I peal?

There use to be self weeding for inkjet but the make discontinued it. Jpps leaves very little amount of polymer window. It usually washes off after few washes. But the polymer window will show on pastel shirts.

ImageClip Laser Light is the only true self weeding transfer for lights. It is ideal for white, light and even pastel because it does not leave polymer window. However, it has limitations. To overcome it the image has to be converted to halftone RGB color.

If you want to stick with inkjet transfer you have to contour cut around the image with vinyl cutter to weed out unwanted polymer.

Thank you for the quick reply. I have not seen laser jet transfers done, is it a huge difference?

Yes the process difference is huge. Imageclip inkjet light is done by printing the the inkjet image on the transfer sheet. Marry it to a mask printed with black toner on a blank printer paper. Peel the papers to remove the unwanted polymer the press the transfer on the shirt.

The image below was done with ImageClip Inkjet light. Double click to enlarge it. It is a shame the maker discontinued it.


With ImageClip Laser light the image is printed on A sheet. Marry it to B sheet. Peel the sheets to remove unwanted polymer. Press the A sheet on the shirt. Imageclip Laser light has limitations. To overcome it convert the image to halftone RGB color. It is vibrant, durable and has soft hand.
The image below was done with ImageClip Laser Light.


If you want to stick to inkjet transfer you can mask unwanted polymer with contour cut blank printer paper. I posted graphical step by step on how to create and use the mask. There is also transferred image on post #25:
