Default T-shirt transfer printing.

Hi,

Got a quick question, and I should probably know this, but... going to printing an image on some paper that will allow it to be put on a t-shirt. Unfortunately, it's nor clear by looking at the paper, or the instructions which side to use it says in the instructions. Print onto the white, unprinted side of the paper.

Looking at the paper, it looks white on both side, and look no different, the only real difference I can tell, is that one side feels rougher than the other, does that make sense.?

is the side you print on, the smooth side is the transfer side, with heat like an iron.

I would say the smooth side its the plastic for the transfer, take an print a copy of what you are going to transfer, try and watch which way it comes out, it might take a test run or two. I was printing address labels early on today and goofed, didn't 'see this till I print the labels themselves.

I hope this helps. I haven't don't it in years. My sight is a lot weaker then it was last did something like that, hope it helps.

Are there any arrows or anything like that on the edges of the package? Sometimes if you look at some papers you can make out shadowy markings on one side. Have you tried angling it under light to check? I know that sounds lame but it would be better than wasting a sheet.

No its not lame, but on some general stuff, I had some mark which end was the non-print able side, for I was unable to tell. For to me they look alike, not much to go on. I might know some who know more with things half packed for our moved, I am having a hard time finding things. I hope it well work for you.
