What is the difference between the Jet-Pro® Sofstretch™ and yolö inkjet papers?

Will this paper work with my inkjet printer?
Almost all inkjet printers are compatible with this paper but there are just too many models on the market for us to test. We recommend testing the paper before production or attempting to print several sheets at once.
What ink is best to use?
We recommend pigment inks for best washability but you can use dye-based, sublimation or pigment inks. Most printers come with standard dye-based inks but some Epson printers come with pigment inks as standard e.g. Durabrite or UltraChrome. Leave the printed image to dry for 10-20 minutes before cutting or pressing.
What print settings should I use?
Our inkjet transfer papers will usually work well on normal paper and image quality setting. Experiment with print settings until you find a setting which prints the best quality image. Avoid using the best image quality settings as too much ink can cause colours to bleed.
Do I have to cut out my image?
Cutting around your image before applying is recommended as unprinted areas of the clear film may be visible on the fabric. You can cut out your image with a craft knife or scissors but contour cutting is recommended for best results. If contour cutting, set the blade to cut through the film layer only.
What colour(s) of fabric can I transfer onto?
This product is recommended for white or light coloured fabric. The fabric colour shows through the clear film so you cannot transfer a colour lighter than the colour of the fabric itself.
Why do the printed colours change after pressing?
As with all transfer papers, there will be some colour changes and unfortunately we are unable to provide specific profile information for individual printer models and inks but feedback on Epson Durabrite inks indicates that decreasing yellow by -20 and increasing magenta and cyan by +5 will improve colours so you may want to experiment using this as guidance.
Can this paper be hand-ironed?
Jet-Pro® Sofstretch™ can be hand ironed, however, some household irons are not able to reach required temperatures for this paper. Heat press application is recommended for best results as due to the lesser amount of pressure and heat, ironing on the product will not be as durable when laundered. If you intend to use a hand iron for this transfer paper then please purchase a sample pack to check you are happy with the results.

Great product! - The best inkjet heat transfer paper I've used yet. It is soft, stretchy and has a minimal background polymer.
Absolutely amazing heat transfer paper, the best so light fabric. Amazing stretch ability and beautiful smooth vibrant colored transfers.
Looks just like screen printed designs. Washed a shirt with it on 15+ times and still looks fresh and new.

Absolutely fantastic! This paper is great for any white, grey or other light colored garments! Would definitely recommend it!
I wouldnt use any other paper on lights. I have tried many but nothing touches this.
