Laser Heat Transfer Paper

Laser heat transfer paper can create beautiful, vibrant transfers quickly and cost-effectively for your business! And due to the unique properties of laser printers, laser transfer papers are also able to create self-weeding options that take the leg work out of creating professional border-free transfers. Not all laser printers are able to run transfer papers however* and we strongly recommend testing individual papers with your printer.

* Not all home laser printers can run laser transfer paper due to them running too hot, and causing the paper to melt & jam within the fusing unit. Since all models and printers vary, please check with the manufacturer concerning the temperature the fusing unit runs at -- we recommend using a printer that runs cooler than 350F. We do not recommend using our transfer papers with HP or Brother brand printers.
