Actually it is not. I know your new so I know you missed a lot of the info about Iron All and Miracool and now softfeel papers. all give you the soft hand feel you desire.The problem is the paper is finicky and you need to learn how to use it. You can check out my videos and see for yourself. I use just this paper for all my white and light transfers if not then I use plastisol transfers which I have made for me from selected companiesis that limited to just big name producers.
