Important (20/05/22) *
The manufacturer of Jet-Pro SofStretch - Neenah Inc - is unable to access all the raw materials they need which is affecting their ability to manufacture heat transfer paper. This issue is likely to continue until at least Autumn 2022.
However, we have managed to arrange a supply of Jet-Pro® SofStretch heat transfer paper from a supplier in the US. Note: This paper is in US sizes which are slightly different to the UK:
|A4||210 mm x 297 mm||216 mm x 279 mm|
|A3||420 mm x 297 mm||432 mm x 279 mm|
You can order this paper now on this page.
Finally, if you are only able to work with UK sizes, we do have a small quantity of an alternative paper which you can order by visiting alternative HTP for light fabric.
Jet-Pro® SofStretch™ heat transfer paper is designed for transferring all types of images onto white and light coloured cotton and polyester fabrics. It is one of the thinnest heat transfers on the market.
Simply print your image with a printer, cut out your design with a contour (plotter) cutter or scissors and press onto your chosen substrate with a hand iron or heat press.
You will need an inkjet/sublimation printer, a digital cutter or scissors, a hand iron or heat press, and silicon or teflon sheets.

What is the difference between the Jet-Pro® Sofstretch™ and yolö inkjet papers?
Jet-Pro® Sofstretch™ is manufactured by Neenah in the USA and yolö inkjet is sourced from Asia. Jet-Pro® Sofstretch™ is one of the thinnest and softest transfer papers on the market. yolö Inkjet is not just as soft but colours appear slightly more vibrant.
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.
I have purchased a roll of this paper. What side do I print on?
When using rolls of Jet-Pro® Sofstretch™ print on the outside surface of the roll.
