Question The Best Dark Garment Transfer Paper UK

Hi Guys! This question has probably been asked a million times before butI'm gonna ask it again.....I'm looking to get some Dark garment heat transfer papers for printing my own image on and heat pressing on to T-Shirts.

I'm a total newby in the T-shirt printing game so I bought some sheets from ebay (50 sheets for £30) and they are unbranded and looked good to start with, but after printing and putting the image on to a shirt, the shirt was worn once and then washed just the once. But disaster struck!! The print peeled at 3 of the 4 corners and the print half washed off.

Now, I don't know what exactly happened as I didn't wash it, but, I guessed it could either be a too hot a wash or the papers were rubbish or could even be a culmination of both, but I'd really like to hear any advice you guys have about the best dark garment paper to buy and where the hell to buy it from!?

Any advice on brands would be great but Links to decent papers would be even better or even a point in the right direction for an existing thread on it, but it MUST be UK suppliers please!!

Just a bit more about what we are trying to achieve, if you are interested....

I work in a tattoo shop and have been given the full kit to print our own T's and we would like to start putting printed tattoo designs on them to sell at conventions and in the studio. We have a magicolour printer with sublimation inks, a heat press, a cameo and all the vinyls a bunch of light garment sublimation papers but we didn't have any dark garment papers, so it was left to me to find the right ones!

We have the means for vinyl too and I seem to be ok with those, like some sort of freak I really enjoy the weeding process, even really complicated designs! But boss wants his digital designs on the T's and they obviously need to last more than one wear and wash!!

Huge thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

but it says on that page: NOTE: This product is only recommended for promotional use, and not as a long-term, commercial solution.

so that's not going to last too long in the wash I expect.

try this one; Inkjet Garment Film | MDP Supplies

I've tried the Yolo transfer paper for dark tees. The image always looks awesome but you should be aware that the transfer won't stretch with the fabric and of course it has a plastic-type feel to it.

I've tried all of these and yolo were awful

The best by FAR is photopaper direct

You can buy in bulk and they regularly send promo codes to your email

I wouldn't ever use MDP or yolo their print on darks are very poor compared to photopaperdirect

Can anyone comment on the lastability of the dark paper from photopaper direct ?

I understand that you need to contour cut it as it transfers white...

The only print on dark transfer paper that doesn't print white is laser self weeding paper which is more expensive, more work and requires a laser printer, which can be expensive to run

the lastability is good, not had any major issues after washes. have more probs with vinyl

print at 160 for 12 secs
