Due to Covid-19 and weather issues, the Postal Service is experiencing delays. Shipping delays are OUT OF MY CONTROL. Every paid order is shipped IMMEDIATELY by Priority Mail (includes tracking and insurance), often on the same day depending on when the order arrives. If you are expecting a package and it is delayed, PLEASE use the tracking number provided and also located in your Paypal order to track the package and to contact your Post Office directly if you have concerns. Please do not contact me to search for a delayed package as I have no additional information beyond what a search using the tracking number provides.
All other concerns related to the paper (and not shipping) I invite you to email me as much as you like. I’m more than happy to assist you.
Please be sure to WATCH these video before you request to purchase.

In this following video I am conducting experiments looking for the best way to transfer images onto tile.
Find out what I feel is the best approach.
Print Using a Laser Printer. Excellent complete transfers using Laser prints. If you choose to use an Inkjet printer, you may end up with a less opaque transfer as inkjet printers use ‘wet’ inks that will react with the coating with some of the ink penetrating and staying with the paper itself rather than fully releasing onto your substrate. If you do not have a Laser and would like the best results, consider going to a big box stationary store like Staples, Office Depot, Office Max, etc. They have Laser printing services.
Feed the paper into the Laser printer ONE SHEET at a time and print. Don’t throw multiple sheets into the tray. Many printers also provide the ability to feed one sheet at a time. Use that feature if available.
Use a Brayer Roller. This is available at most art supply stores and online. Amazon sells several sizes with varying prices.
ALTERNATIVE QUICK METHOD (1 minute with hair dryer). This is one of my new favorite ways to transfer. Use on wood, paper, tile, whatever. Use GEL MEDIUM ONLY. What is nice about this method is that it is really fast, but you don’t have to rush. Just apply the Gel Medium, press with your brayer really well, feel free to clean up excess ooze out, and then when satisfied go right ahead and dry it with your hair dryer for just 30-seconds. In other words, it is your choice whether you want to be done within 1 minute or take an extra few seconds to another minute. Not an issue. See the video above “Lakers Journal” to see this method being used. If you choose to let it dry for several hours, it will work. However, it may require an extra peel or two as you moisten it. Peeling at the 1-minute mark or so is the best approach.
ONE MINUTE QUICK METHOD (1 minute). For transfers to smooth wood surfaces. However, it requires using Gel Medium only. This method is super fast, with the actual transfer done in 45-seconds to a minute. You simply apply gel medium (Liquidtex, Blick, etc.) to your smooth wood surface with your finger to make sure you have full coverage and enough that it is still wet when applying the paper. Any dry areas will not transfer and may cause paper to bubble (not stay down due to lack of adhesive). Press with a brayer to assure good contact during the 45-second wait. Then immediately moisten the back of the paper and peel. Done! You’ll get good results, but the Alternative Quick Method (shown above) has been demonstrated to help improve complete transfers.
HOW IT’S MADE
This is high-quality 25% cotton bond paper specially coated to do what it does. This paper is homemade and not mass produced. Each sheet is treated by hand, allowed to dry, then pressed. Much time and labor is put into making this paper. Yet, I have priced it to be really affordable.
