Default Specialty Burn Through Paper ?

Somewhere I thought I had heard of a specialty paper that was thin and transparent ? and could be used for patterns using an ordinary ink jet printer.
The purpose of it was to fasten it right onto the wood and burn through the paper onto the wood which saves the time of tracing the pattern first with graphite paper using a red ink pen like I have been doing .

Is anyone here aware of what I am referring to ? If so, I would like a link to a supplier of it . .
and a name of what it is called so I could check with local stationery stores.

Hi Bill

you can use t-shirt printing paper
You just use your wife's door stop ( iron) and it put's the image right on the wood..from just about any office supply outlet..

Comes in many sizes..and you use your printer..to make the pattern..

Hi Bill

Here's a old post,,you will see I use the t-shirt paper, the one in the snapshot was a pattern but the iron was to hot and it stuck to the board but it comes off real nice if done right,, I did about 40 or so..don't forget you must print it backwards if you have letters in it..

Thanks for the replys.
Someone also mentioned the pyrography paper that is shown on Amazon.com

Amazon.com: Pyrography Paper: Home Improvement

OK, I checked out the pyrography paper at Amazon.com and even called them because it looks like it is thin and transparent in the picture they provide . I was concerned about getting paper jambs in a printer. He said it is not transparent and it is not thin . It is white like ordinary printer paper but is treated so it can be burned through.

I would think it would only be used for outlining and not used for shading and delicate areas ? ?

I would like to know what the majority of burners do. Do they just trace the picture using ordinary printer paper with graphite paper under it and a fine red pencil for tracing ? or do they use a shortcut with special papers etc. I don't want to waste money on buying stuff that won't work as good as the time consuming tracing I am doing now.

The same supplier that has the pyrography paper also has an electric transfer tool . It has a smooth rounded end on it for transferring a pattern printed on ordinary paper on to the wood. I understand an iron works for that but that transfer tool might be more convenient ? ? ? . How many here have used that method and what are the pros and cons of it.

Hi Bill. For small letters I print my text on my computer. Then I reverse it. I take it to Office Max and print it. Regular inkjet ink will not transfer with heat. Only toner ink will transfer. I use the heat transfer tool to put the image on the wood. When I do large lettering for signs and placques, I use blue transfer paper that get from Saral Paper Co and trace my images on the wood. Blue transfer is easily eraseable on the wood. Saral Paper Corporation: Products and Uses

Thanks Gary.
I do have a older Sharp A-800 laser copier that uses a toner cartridge as well as my ink jet printer which I use more often because the toner cartridges cost about a hundred bucks. .
Perhaps I should give that a try .
Without wanting to purchase the transfer tool before knowing if it would work would an ordinary clothes iron (no steam of course) work ? ?

Bill an ordinary iron will work and it covers more area. Try it!

Thanks Gary.
I will give it a try then . I have never inverted a picture like needs to be done for that but I'm pretty sure I know how. If I can't get it flipped I will let you know.

I have not been able to get at any more burning because of the time of year with getting honey-do stuff done and family arriving for Christmas etc but if I don't get a chance before Christmas I surely will after that.
