Craft Jet Heat Transfer Paper is sometimes called printable heat transfer vinyl. Technically it is not HTV - it's made from synthetic paper, not vinyl. But there are similarities. Craft Jet Heat transfer paper is designed for clothing graphics and it applies with a heat press or iron.
The Light paper is for white or light coloured fabrics. It can be identified by the red grid on its backing. The Light paper retains its colours better during washing. The Dark paper is for coloured and dark fabrics. It has blue lines on its backing. Please be aware, the different papers have different printing and application instructions.
Craft Jet Heat Transfer Paper is compatible with desktop inkjet printers (aqueous ink). Additionally, the Dark option is compatible with crayons or markers. Create one-of-a-kind hand-drawn images. Do not use with toner/laser printers.
