Default Re: 3G Jet Opaque

Hello everyone, I purchased a roll of 3g jet opaque, and I printed on Yellow shirts and it came out beautifully, just like a screen print. But, I wanted to put an image on a black shirt and you can't even see it. I contacted the company I bought it from and they said that if it didn't leave a white background, it was not the 3g jet opaque and told me to send it back. I loved the way it printed on the yellow so I want to keep it, but they cannot seem to tell me what I have, so my question is: Can anyone tell me what I may have. Here is a description: The paper is printed right reading, then it is peeled away from the backing paper, it is very, very thin. It is so thin, that I have to place it on the shirt away from the heat press because the heat radiating from the press causes it to start softening and curling before I can pull the lever of the press down. if I try to arrange it while on the platen. It is white on the unprinted parts, but when heat pressed on black, the white is barely visible. It was wonderful on the bright yellow, but, I did notice that my blue bill did turn a shade of green. I was printing a black and white barcode symbol on a black shirt. Does anyone have any idea what paper I have?
