Features & Benefits dye sublimation heat transfer paper
Special coating provides brilliant transferred optical density on the fabrics/substrates. Unique anti-curl back coating for lay-flat property. Unique coating ensures true colors, no bleeding and sharp images on final substrates. Minimum ink-bleed on base paper to give high color intensity on transfer. Short drying time to achieve high transfer rate.
Compatibility dye sublimation heat transfer paper
Compatible with most aqueous dye-sub inks.
Compatible with most printers using piezo heads.
Instructions dye sublimation heat transfer paper
While printing, make sure that image is printed as mirror image. Cut the image borders if required. Place the paper on the hard substrate, such as ceramic, glass, etc, and apply heat press. Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form. The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time.
What is Dye Sublimation Printing & Why Do You Need it?
Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form (Just like dry ice).The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time. Hard items such as ceramic, fiber board, metals, etc. requires a special coating to accept the sublimation inks. You must purchase the mugs, tiles, metals, etc. with the coating already on them, it is not something you can just coat yourself. We carry a full line of these sublimatable blanks. When you apply to 100% polyester (i.e: our mouse pads and puzzles) you do not need any coating.
