Its just opaque transfer paper. I think it was inkjet paper, but could have been laser. Anyway, you can buy most of the transfer papers in 8.5x11 and 11x17.
I have used alpha gold for darks (printable vinyl) in 8.5X11 sheets with the claria inks that came with my epson 1400 and they worked great. I need a cutter to contour cut the images so I won't have a white outline around any of the transfers. Other than the cut out problem ( my problem, not the paper/vinyl )it hasn't bled or ffaded after numerous washes
I fordet where, it was a sample pack that a lot of members have gotten. Someone that got the sample pack with the alpha gold, green JPSS and red? chime in and let Ken know where, PLEASE. Not being able to do a good job of trimming yet is why I haven.t ordered more. Its true I don't like the feel but hey, I'm getting a vinyl cutter to put vinyl on shirts and uniforms so that sounds kinda hypocritical doesn't it. But the three shirts I have done used it on are not loosing color or anything. The documentation I have with the packet has a web site Heat transfer paper, tutorials and heat presses to start a business. Good luck.Terry, where did you buy the Alpha Gold for darks? I have the epson 1400 as well and I have a Roland GX24 cutter. The inks bleed and fade on the paper I have now. Thanks, Ken
