What does "self weeding" heat transfer paper mean?

Self-weeding (no-cut) heat transfer papers are laser printer compatible papers that transfer only the printed image without the need to cut or trim away the background. 

Most papers for light/white garments are a one-step process, meaning that the sheet you print on already has a layer of adhesive and is ready to press on your T-shirt right away. Papers for dark and colored garments need to be more opaque therefore require a thicker layer of adhesive. These are a two-step process: the sheet you print on is not coated and the adhesive comes on a secondary sheet.
