What is the difference between the Jet-Opaque® II, 3G Jet-Opaque®?
Jet-Opaque® II and 3G Jet-Opaque® are both manufactured by Neenah in the USA. 3G Jet-Opaque® is the latest generation paper and is the softest of the two. It is especially recommended for 100% cotton where as Jet-Opaque® II is recommended when transferring onto cotton/polyester blends.
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?
Jet-Opaque® II 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.
