Are both type of these transfers only for printing on a home printer (I have a Epson R800)? If yes, is the end result high enough quality that you can sell the shirt in (high end) stores?

My dilemma seems to be if I should have custom transfers made or print them myself, but if I print them myself.

I want to make sure there are no loss of quality.

No, high end stores will not be interested in shirts printed with transfer paper.

So, no transfers at all unless you are going for the 70's transfer look?
Exactly. No paper transfers anyway - you could get some plastisol transfers in. Or sell to a lower end store at lower prices.

Lou, can you tell me the pro and cons of both Iron All and TransJet II paper? I’ve used Iron All, but am thinking of going to TJ II. Thanks.

Yup, I've been playing around with IronAll for the past few weeks, and the hand (after 1 washing) is zero. There is a slight fading after the 1st wash, but not much. The only issue I have is that you can see the outline of where you cut, even after several washes. With a few of the others I've used, you can't see the outline at all on white shirts. However, those brands have a more rough hand, and tend to crack a bit over time.

Has anyone else experienced (border showing) this with IronAll? If so, do you have a work-around? It's great stuff with the exception of the slight border issue.

What I've heard is generally this: IronAll is harder to use, but has a very soft hand. Magic Jet/TJII is easy to use and has brighter colors, but doesn't have as soft of a hand (feel) to it.

iron all is good, but not after the first wash. it may be soft and all, but im going towards another brand. besides they sent me a couple cracked up transfers that i couldnt use. I called several times, they promised they send some new ones, but never did. i think they operate at home, cuz i heard babies crying when i called. how un professional. im not ordering from them again. Maybe other people have better service or better outcome.

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience ordering, but I don't think operating a business from home is unprofessional at all. Thousands of successful companies started out that way and continue to run that way.

Yeah, working at home doesn't equal an unprofessional business - it's the other factors that do. It really doesn't matter where they are working out of, only the quality of service and product you get.

It does mean unprofessional if that home life is intruding into the business life though, as it sounds like it was in this case.
