Do they even make this? For laser printers that is.

All the Avery stuff (and some non-Avery) on Amazon seems to be for ink jet printers. The color printer I have access to is not ink jet, it's a laser printer.

I'd prefer to buy it in-store, so if you know of any chain that carries this, I'd like to know. I am near Walmart, Office Max, Hobby Lobby, Target, Michael's, JoAnn's (and I've heard there's a Hancock not too far away).

I just did some quick research on this, because your question intrigued me. Apparently most transfer paper is for inkjets as you mention; this is because inkjets use regular ink to print, while laser printers use toner and a heat-set process to set the toner on the paper, which would melt the iron-transfer part of the transfer paper and make a big mess.

There do seem to be some specialized transfer papers for laser printers - I saw some at and I did a quick search at, for example, and they don't seem to carry it in store, although this is something that an office supply store or somewhere like Michael's might be able to order for you.
