Kelly: i don't know it looked legit. but i didn't buy it.
what do the blue and black lines mean?
some transfers i have have those lines but are from june tailor
Sorry, kb, I didn't mean to imply the seller is not legit. I didn't look at their feedback rating. They may be a perfectly good seller. For me, it's all about the paper.
When I see the name JetPro... knowing how popular the paper is on this forum, I immediately wondered if the paper was being sold under the guise that it is JetPro Sofstretch. I actually have nothing to base that on, other than the name.
For people who don't not know *how* to spot *real* Jetpro Sofstretch paper, that product "could" look like an ebay auction for Jetpro Sofstretch.
I wouldn't use the paper in that auction, I really like the real JPSS. There is a paper sold by the Paper Ranch that is called "Jetpro". It is not JPSS paper, just another paper with a similar name. I looked to see if this was the Paper Ranch, just selling thru Ebay, but it doesn't look like it. I didn't look past the name of the seller and read the ad, tho.
The blue lines on the back are the backprint on JPSS paper. There are blue grids, and the name Jetpro Sofstretch printed on the back of the real JPSS paper that we are usually talking about here on the forum.
There is a distributor who is allowed to mark the paper with a plain black line down the back. If it does not have the black line down the back, or the blue grids and JPSS name, it isn't JPSS. (At this time, these are the backmarkings on the paper.)
June Taylor may use blue grids, too. That is okay. There is actually another heat transfer paper with blue grids that is called Blue Grid. Blue grids are not exclusive to one paper, but for Jetpro Sofstretch, blue grids plus the name JetPro SofStretch is the backmark of that paper, other than when it has a black line. Possibly, even no line, I think I read someone once got paper with no mark at all... but... the packaging included paper that clearly stated the full name JetPro SofStretch.
Dealing with a reputable dealer will help ensure you get the paper you *think* you are purchasing. Paper can make such a huge difference in your finished product, that when you fall in love with a paper, you want to make *sure* you get *that* paper when you think you are buying it.
Hope this helps, sorry for any confusion I may have caused.
