It's fine for making somebody a one-shot "Happy 30th Birthday" shirt that will fade in the wash and end up in the trash the day after the party.

agree with Randi....transfer paper from the stationary/office supply stores are not the greatest and should be used only as a hobby type...To do commercially viable shirts,you need professional grade paper AND a heat press. To do the press correctly you need consistent temp/time/pressure across the entire transfer

Avoid the stuff for darks--unless it's changed in the last few years, it's practically unusable with a regular iron, just ruins the shirt and leaves a molten layer of torn-up plastic behind. The light will make a serviceable quickie. :)
