Can I print on navy and black shirts and mugs with the same kind of heat transfer paper?

Answer

There are different types of transfer paper used to print on hard surfaces and specific transfers for printing on dark garments. A popular application for printing dark garments is a two-part heat transfer paper system, while laser heat transfer papers are designed for use on light colored garments. There are also textile foils and metallic materials for darker garments that make an image pop—a transfer paper is used as the adhesive that enables the foil to adhere to the garment.
