The manufacturer of 3G - Neenah Inc - is unable to access all the raw materials they need which is severely limiting their ability to manufacture heat transfer paper. They expect this issue to continue to at least Autumn 2022.
We currently have a small quantity of A4 and NO A3 in UK sizes. However, we have managed to arrange a supply of paper from a supplier in the US. Note: paper sizes in the US are slightly different.
|A4||297 mm x 210 mm||279 mm x 216 mm|
|A3||420 mm x 297 mm||432 mm x 279 mm|

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 will appear as a white background 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 bright or dark coloured fabric. The transfer has an opaque (white) layer to hide the colour of the fabric.
Can this paper be hand-ironed?
3G Jet-Opaque® 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.
I have purchased a roll of this paper. What side do I print on?
When using rolls of 3G Jet-Opaque®, print on the outside surface of the roll.
