i have heard some where is another paper is like a transparency film and the prints comes out like screen print feeling.

is that thru and what are they exactly called and were can find prints with a paper like that?

Warm regards Newbie
You a probably refering to DST transfers. DST stands for Digital Screen Technology.
A full colour digital image is laser printed (in reverse) onto a transparent (or white) film and a white 'mask' is screen printed over the back.
When pressed the whole thing has the feel and durability of a screen printed transfer.

As yet the Danish company behind this method doesn't seem interested in moving this down from an industrial scale process to the small scale shops. They want to sell the complete printing line, not just the film and ink.

But are you saying one way is to use BOTH white coating PLUS black coating (plus adhesive)? What would be the point of the black coating?
White for opacity/luminescence, black for a dye blocking layer on problem fabrics.

The ones I have used are very durable in the wash and have a better hand than plastisol or solvent transfer.
