please always remember.... The companies CAN(and some do!) switch out paper and call it the same name!!!!
ALWAYS ASK!!!! "is this "so&so" paper...what is the original name?"

If they do not want to say...... I always go and ask mike! (and I 99.9% of the time shop with him anyway!!) :)

i remember ordering some double green line transfer paper and recieving something different. i called and was told it was the same paper just didnt have the green lines on the back. i used it and it got the same results as the double green line..so i guess it was the same paper. this was years ago so i dont even remember where i ordered it from.

lol....AND....sometimes that "back-mark" is changed while the paper is the same!!!

...this makes it so hard and confusing to really KNOW what one is getting!!!

So far, LOU and Mike will call their paper what it is!!!
...AND if someone does not know and asks them.....they will tell them the truth as to what the paper is!!!
(thanks guys!!!) :)

re: Dark OPAQUE Inkjet Heat Transfer Papers Names - and the "other" names they are sold under. (pls help add to this list)

I use the Forever INK jet Dark. I have tried all the opaque papers in the coastal sample pack. I printed a shirt with each brand of opaque paper in that pack and one with the forever ink jet dark. I then let my wife wash them like she would any other laundry. after 8 months of washing and wearing them the only one that has survived in shape is the forever shirt. It has a slight wrinkling when it first comes out of dryer but as soon as you wear it a little a couple of minutes the print returns to normal. After 8 months it was still looking great until my wife washed some new black dress shirts along with the load and the ink on the dress shirts bleed causing the color of everything in that load to darken. I was bummed it was one of my favorite shirts. Oh well I will have to print another one. So yes I am happy with this paper and they have some great videos on the International Coatings web site.
