Hi there, I'm a newbie and I just started reading around on different types of transfer papers. I'd like to buy the kind that doesn't leave the white background on when applied...

Does that even exist? :confused: Where could I buy some?

Thanks for your help!!

Are you asking about transfer paper that ONLY the graphic goes on the shirt ?
Are you using your own printer to make the transfers ?

Hi there, yes exactly, transfer paper which only the graphics stay on the shirt. I'd be using my inkjet printer to print on the transfer.


Hope that kind of transfer paper exists!

Thanks for your help!

the photo trans image clip paper does what you are descibing for light colored shirts, but it requires a laser printer. The miracool / ironall / softfeel paper leaves a very unoticable film on the shirt, that is soft and not unpleaseant.

For dark color shirts, if you dont want a window on the shirt, you will need to do one of the following:
1. Opaque transfers with optical eye vinyl cutter to die cut on the printed sections
2. die cut heat transfer vinyl
3. plasticol transfers

nope.
May be one day.
For now you would need to get a plastisol transfer maker to make them for you or you could go out and buy screen printing equipment and learn the trade. Not complicated but it will take time to learn the Trade and money (not cheap, cheap). :D
