Can someone tell me if you can use the Roland GX24 to cut the JetPro SofStretch for light color garments? I know it works for the opaque but not about the light colors. Thanks, Connie

you cannot contour cut JPSS without a backing sheet. The reason it works with opaque is because there is a backing....to contour cut paper intended for light garments, you will need to have a carrier sheet

What type of carrier paper would one use? You would want to be able to remove the carrier before printing too wouldn't you? I have Port N Company ash with a big image and it turns dark where there is no ink. I don't want to hand trim 30 shirts for a customer. Thanks for the help. Connie

Okay I found a carrier paper that will work. Now my next question. I used Cut Studio but on the attached image it wants to weed out in the letters and part of the paper the boy is holding. I don't need that detail of weeding. How do you get a contour or is this design not able to do that. Thanks, Connie

I have to agree with Charles. You must be using 3G Opaque paper not JPSS.

This is a great idea, to contour cut this type of paper as well, but I would have to recommend a backing media of some type.

You will end up ruining your cutting strip if you do not use a backing media such as mask.

Also, there are papers such as our Inktra Stretch, that have a powdery printing surface that would make a mess if you tried to cut it on a vinyl cutter.

Not sure why you would want to contour cut JPSS any way. Just trim close with sizzors and you'll be fine.

They have to trim these as I mentioned in my eariler post the Ash shirts turn dark where there is no ink and it does not wash out unfortunatly. White is no problem with this paper. Connie

Sorry about that Connie. That's what I get for not reading everything. I have never done it but from what I read here, your best bet is to cut with a carrier sheet. There are different ones out there and I am sure that SOMEONE will chime in about what they use.
