The Jet pro soft stretch (JPSS) s the best inkjet paper for light Garments and the Alpha Gold/Jwtwear dark (same paper different name) is best for dark garments. I know there are some changes comming soon that will make the heat Transfer paper a more viable option. The announcement and availability will be made by the manufacturer soon. .... JB

For light/white shirts = Jetprosofstretch/JPSS

For darks = 1. Ironall Dark/Everlast
dark option 2. JetWear/AlphaGold

All work great with pigment ink. :)

What kind of t shirt are you using? Dye sub works best on 100 polys.

Pigment ink and inkjet heat transfer papers work great on cotton or cotton/poly blends.

im using cotton and cotton/poly.

You have to use 100% polyester or one of those special cotton shirts with the poly overlay that will accept those inks. I think Softlinks is one of them.

Here is a thread on it.. If you search Softlinks, you'll find threads on it, and more alternatives. They are costly compared to cotton shirts, but if you want to use a cotton product, you'll need to re-work your process to include something like this:

If your using dye sub ink,you need to have polyester garments to get the best results. I have used 50/50 with decent results and I have used cotton with a poly coated transfer paper. The results on coton or 50/50 are not reliable. ... JB
