Re: question?

I'll attempt to answer. "Best" is a pretty broad term. If your trying to decide which color shirts give the best results for transfers, I would say white and very light pastels. They use transfer paper specifically for light fabrics and will not work on dark colors. Dark shirts, black, navy, brown etc will require paper specifically designated for darks. This paper is opaque and is applied by removing the release liner and placing on the shirt "right reading" before it is pressed. Just the opposite of transfers for lights, which are printed as mirrored, applied to the garment, pressed and then peeled to reveal the printing.
