I haven't used the Inktra (Stahl's I believe). Not sure if it was their take on IronAll for darks, but IronAll for darks is another good brand.

...I have a "sample pack" of the SHAHLS "INKTRA OPAQUE" here in my hand....
On the back it's TRUE name is......

"Jet Opaque II" manufactured by Neenah.
(orange lines or an orange grid)

I buy mine from Tshirtsupplies.com("JetWear Dark") and get a great price.

It has never "bled" on me and presses great.

.....but remember.... there are always "different" batches out there!

When I purchase any pack HT paper I take a sheet from the top and a sheet from the middle (towards the bottom) and "test" it.
Then I know whether to keep it or send it back for an exchange.:)

Jetwear Dark is a good paper and absolutely you want to test the paper when you receive it. I have not tried Iron all for Darks so really can't offer any input there. I have been lucky enough to not have any issues with bleeding but like to think it's either luck or the testing I'm doing. :D LOL

I tried the ultra gold,no good results. I tried it on 50/50 cot/poly, What was suppose to be white on black turned out to be gray on black tee.I even tried preheating it several times hoping over come dye. Should i be using 100% cotton only? Lost in a black hole, will look into the jetwear dark. Bobalou5
