Image Transfer Paper

Image Transfer Paper

The progress in Inkjet printer technology in recent years has allowed printer owners to use their printer in a far more creative manner. This includes the use of image transfer paper that allows the transfer of an image, text or both onto a wide range of textiles. Perhaps mostly widely known as t shirt transfer paper, the image can be transferred onto a wide range of fabrics such as cotton, polyester to name just a few as well as non fabric surfaces.

The transfer paper that is used has a special coating that can accommodate ink (normal printer inks are fine) and using heat from a domestic iron or heat press machine, the design can applied onto a number of suitable surfaces of light or dark complexion using light transfer or dark transfer paper. These include fabrics (t shirts, baby aprons, pillow cases) as well as wood, mugs (using tattoo paper), candles (using tattoo paper), and many other surfaces provided that the surface can handle the heat generated by the iron during the transfer process.
