Besides the blue grid paper that Lou suggested, the other opaquepaper I've seen most recommended is the paper from Transfer Technology; I believe they will usually send out a free sample sheet if you ask.

Personally, I do not find the quality of opaque papers I've seen to be high enough that I'd want to sell them, but others have had better luck. There are other options to printing on dark shirts (screen printing, vinyl/flock, plastisol...) which may work better, depending on what exactly you are trying to do.

What I need to print is a logo with a black and white gradient on the back with the company name on a dark red over the gradient and all of that printed on a black tee.

Also is there a ink specialised for heat transfer?
How many shirts like that do you plan on printing? If you are printing enough, your best bet may be plastisol transfers (which would be ordered from another company, and then pressed with a heat press by you).


There is an ink set designed for t-shirts - the Magic Mix from TLM Supply House. I don't know of any other t-shirt specific inks, though most pigmented inks (Durabrite, etc.) usually work pretty well too.
