Are their any companies that make a good opaque paper? I have not tried any yet, but have been getting alot of requests for dark shirts. I do a lot of text on my shirts and i hear text does not work to well. Just curious where everyone orders their opaque paper from?

Text is tough with opaque transfer papers, due to the amount of trimming involved. A nice alternative is the heat transfer vinyl and a hobbiest type cutter. You can get a cutter that cuts as wide as 8" for about $400.

I agree, with heat transfer paper you're going to run into 1 of 2 problems...

1. You're going to have to cut out each letter.
2. You're going to have a rectangle around your words.

For text we usually use Silver Mountain Graphics. They make plastisol transfers that work great for text. Good luck!
