Hello,
So I've used dark transfer paper for a red t-shirt I have for printing a snowman and the white came out opaque and faded, so how could that be solved? Is it becahse I applied to much pressure and did it for too long?
Thank you

It is a 100% cotton shirt
Hmm... it doesn't look like 100% cotton to me.
What brand t-shirt is it, and what transfer paper are you using?

You can test the shirt fabric by using a hot iron set to cotton temperature.
If it's 100% cotton the iron will slide easy over the fabric. If it feels sticky, then it has polyester content.

I will test that to see thank you for the idea.
I tried another with less time and it worked but need to be sure if it is 100% cotton!
Thank you all
