What is "self-weeding" heat transfer paper?

Self-weeding heat transfer papers are laser printer compatible papers that transfer only the printed image. This eliminates the need to trim away the background.

Most papers for light substrates are a single step process. The sheet you print on already has adhesive and is ready to press on your substrate right away. Papers for colored or dark substrates require more adhesive because they need to be opaque. Self-weeding paper has a two-step process: the sheet you print on is not coated and the adhesive comes on a secondary sheet.

JPPlus has a wide selection of printers from iColor, the leading name in heat transfer printing.
