Currently, it seems to be Jet Pro SoftStretch: jpss related topics at T-Shirt Forums

Usually pigment ink is recommended (like from an epson c120 or c88), but others have used HP inks with JPSS.

I don't know. You should go into the stores and ask them :)

The plus size t-shirts usually cost more than other blanks, so it might be hard to get them all under $5. Best place to search is our wholesale t-shirts section of the forum here: Wholesale T-Shirts and Other Imprintable Products - T-Shirt Forums

A good place to start is the search box at the very top of this site. If you type in inkjet transfers, or transfer recommendations or blank t-shirts wholesale or any of the other questions you have, you'll find that many of your questions have already been answered in previous posts that have been made here :)

I am not a big fan of the Avery Transfers, but I do use them when I have to.
I get mine mostly from the Midwest Paper Group. They have the Best prices for transfers!!

You can print the pictures you want on the transfers yourself.

The best place for cheap tshirts online that I have found is Jiffy Shirts. I order from them all of the time!

www.jiffyshirts.com


Also, if you have a CVS pharmacy, a Rite Aide Pharmacy, and a Walgreens Pharmacy where you live, I get tshirts from them all of the time for $2 to $2.50 a piece! I also get some at Hobby Lobby Craft Store and A.C. Moore Craft store, then as a last resort, I go to Wal Mart! :)

You do not need a sealer for iron on transfers.


I hope this helps some!

I ran out of my JPSS today and had to do 3 shirts. I went to Walmart and noticed that they are carrying Avery Softstretch heat transfer paper. I bought some to check it out and it appears to look and feel like Ironall with a bit of a texture to the print surface of the paper.

I seemed to print find and the backing paper pulled like butter. It was almost like the backing paper "fell off" the ink....VERY little resistence when removing. The image felt soft but have no idea yet on washability.

I have already tried those and it ruined in the wash. I washed it inside out, in cold, no softeners or anything, and al of the color was gone when it came out! So, I wouldn't recommend those. (At least for for doing inket prints to put on tshirts..lol)
The JUNE TAYLOR brand dark tshirt transfers located in the fabric department at Walmart work VERY WELL!! But you only get 3 in a pack for $6.97. I think it is ridiculous how much transfers cost!
