Hello all!
So, after pressing onto my garment (JPSS paper, Epson printer) I like to finish off with an 8 second press with parchment paper. I feel like it helps smooth out the design and take away the texture or shiny look that you sometimes get. BUT I've noticed that part of my image tends to transfer onto my parchment paper, enough so that I don't use the same side twice for fear that it will cause ghosting on my next project. I find that I am just going through parchment paper like crazy and it just feels so wasteful. Any other ideas for achieving the end effect of parchment paper but without the waste? Thanks in advance for any help or insight! :D

It seems there may be a heat issue for the 2nd press. Try cutting the press time a bit. Some recommend a 2nd press to better push the ink into the shirt but I've never tried it. I'm not certain it's necessary.
