Default Transfer tape like for heat transfers?

Hi, I am currently printing out with neenah printable transfer paper and works great. My question is.....I have a titan 2 cutter which has the contour cutting feature. Now, If I print something that has letters or small objects....when I put into shirt I usually need to put a background on the image the color of shirt in order for it all to lift from the neenah paper and on to the shirt in one full image. I don't know if I am explaining myself correctly. What I need is like "transfer tape" like when doing vinyl decals to transfer the whole image at once and not have to use a background. Is there something for using on t shirts? I have one that was given to me by a friend, the image was transferred successfully but when heat pressed and removed from shirt it was way too tacky and a lot of the ink came on with the clear transfer paper. I also waited till it was cold thinking it was a cold peel but nothing. Am I doing something wrong, or is there any other product I am missing? thanks in advance
