Default Anybody notice a difference between inkjet film brands?

Hello all,

I want to know if I'm the only one who noticed this and am crazy, or if its in fact actually an issue y'all have faced before.

I have two brands of inkjet film. one is for 8.5" x 11" for smaller designs (and seems lesser quality) than my 13"x19" film. Both are waterproof inkjet, yet the 8.5"x11" waterproof inkjet film often doesnt print as dark and has to be doubled...not so much with the 13"x19" which doesn't give me any issues.

Glad to have any input, cheers,

I've always used stuff made for screen printing and haven't had an issue. I get mine from Films Direct; Fixxons is the other brand a lot of people use. The stuff from the office supply store is likely to disappoint.
