Default Printing on Cotton

I have tried to search for the answer to my question, but most of the ones I found have an older date, and I am thinking there are newer options available. I have about 20 light colored Gildan 100% tshirts that I need to press for a wedding in Hawaii. There is a name and a graphic for each one. I am wondering if there is a good quality self-weeding paper or film that I can use so that there is no residue left on the shirt in areas where there is no print. I have tried the Conde Reveal which is now discontinued and it does not look good at all. Here is the equipment that I have: Sawgrass SG800 Sublijet, Sawgrass SG400 ChromaBlast, Epson Echo Tank Inject 3700, HP Color Laser Printer, GeoKnight D20 Heat Press, Adobe Photoshop. Any and all help would be MOST appreciated as I need to get these shirts out the door by tomorrow.

You can't sublimate on cotton, it will wash right off. Stahls offers printed vinyl https://www.stahls.com/full-color-digital-transfer. I know that won't help today but it is a future option.

I'd go for the "FOREVER Laser Transparent" to be safe.
You could also try the Reveal-S sublimation paper, but I'm not sure if it is compatible with Sawgrass inks.

Tag poly transfer from JDS
We use it anytime we need a full color print on cotton or dark poly
