Still a newbie and just started using JPSS transfer paper to do some shirts. I have used the advice to put logo and such in a circle or oval filled with color, so you don't get the yellowish tint where white should be. I have had a request to do some light blue shirts with dk blue and other color lettering. Can I use the regular JPSS as it is a "light" blue shirt or should I do something else? They only need 7-10 shirts with a saying and 2 logos? Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Tim

I am using JPSS on light blue now. It is a picture of a founder of an institution and mostly black and white. The white in the picture is coming out on the blue side but the customer likes it. (go figure) I would not use JPSS on anything but white or light gray. I have text also but doing that in vinyl. (royal blue) Do a sample and let your customer make up his mind.

Excellent advice. ALWAYS show the customer a sample of a similar product to make sure he understands the limitations of using transfer paper. It's a good idea to have them sign off with their approval.

JPSS is good for whites and ash grey, but for many other lights, the shirt color shows through wherever their is white in the design. Use heat-applied vinyl or contour-cut opaque paper with a cutter.
