3G JET-OPAQUE® (1 Step) For Dark Garment Printing in InkJet Printers. 3G JET-OPAQUE has a softer hand and drapes better on shirt. This Heat Transfer Paper is designed for transferring ink jet images to dark or other colored garments and substrates. The product contains an opaque layer to hide the color of the substrate and allow for photo-quality transfers. This product can be cut with a cutter/plotter, die and kiss-cut. Substrates include: T-shirts, sweatshirts, mouse pads, puzzles, and leather goods. Choose garments that have a tight weave.

IMPORTANT: Make one shirt and wash it by itself before producing your order. This will help you from making costly mistakes and will allow
you to take corrective action before you make a quantity of shirts. When the instructions are followed you will get excellent results!

STORAGE AND HANDLING OF HEAT TRANSFER PAPERS
Store Heat Transfer Papers in a cool, dry area and do not remove from carton or poly
bag until you are ready to use.

IMPORTANT
We thoroughly test each of our products on various substrates using different transfer equipment (including many different home irons). However, it is impossible for us to duplicate all variables using all substrates and transfer equipment. Therefore, it is essential that you test the paper prior to production using your equipment, methods, and substrate material. Heat presses vary in accuracy. Conduct tests to determine the best time and temperature to use with your equipment. The Seller’s and Manufacturer’s maximum obligation shall be to replace any paper that has proven to be defective. Neither the Seller nor the Manufacturer shall be liable for any injury, direct or consequential, arising out of the use of, or inability to use this paper.
