A few days ago I had a design to transfer and the laser print did stick but whenn pulled off left an unclear transfer.
Then I thought of someones post a while ago. He said, let the transfer dry up and then wet the paper with water and brush it off with a finger.
It worked very well for this laser copy. Hope it is of interest for you.

The laser copy, silver plate etc.
Transfer taped onto the plate,
Transfer wetted with nailpolish remover (acetone)
How it looks whenn dry
Soaked in water and half rubbed away. Dont rubb to hard and wet often.
You can rubb fairly roughly but whenn the rolls of paper get bigger you should rinse. You can damage the transfer by rubbing too much. But if you don't rubb enough the left over paper fibers will be anoying at least. Do remind that this is a tip from someone else. Hope too find out who soon to say thanks.
I just put photo's to it.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Did you use any medium on the plate before placing the design on it? The resulting transfer is perfect!

Hi SG,
No medium just cleaned with acetone
I do think that that is one problem with this transfer method that when handeling shiny objects you get too much reflection.
