Exclamation Re: a review of 8 different custom plastisol transfer screen printers - samples followup

I've read through all the threads and I still can't figure out which transfers to buy for printing my own art work for dark shirts. For example, I have a design that only uses green and yellow words in various layout. I can't seem to figure out which transfer paper to buy for a royal blue shirt that won't have the white backing on it. I'd like it to look just like a screen printed transfer. Is that possible? I have an Epson WF7620 and have printed many of my own designs already for light colors, but am still stumped on the darks. Thanks for the help. I have a HUGE order to do and really need to figure this out.

It's not so much the paper you need to figure out; any plastisol transfer paper will do this for you.

It's the ink. If you want to avoid using a white underbase, you'll need to use an opague plastisol ink.

Oh, not sure I can do that with this printer? I wish I had someone close that could walk me through it.

Give us details. What kind of printer do you have?

Sounds like you may be talking about an inkjet or laser printer, not a screen print which is what this thread is about.

I have an Epson WF 7620. I was able to contact Pro World early this morning, lovely being on the west coast and most suppliers are mid to eastern standard time. She suggested their trimfree paper. I'm feeling very lost.

You posted in the plastisol transfer thread. You can't make plastisol transfers with an inkjet printer. You can only make them using screen printing equipment.

The information you are looking for can be found in this part of the forum: Inkjet Heat Transfer Paper - T-Shirt Forums. Browse through the posts here and acquaint yourself with what's available.

Thanks - that was quite a while ago. I've since purchased a white toner printer and a dye sublimation printer.
