What is Sublimation?
Some apparel decorators call it dye-sub, or dye sublimation printing, but no matter what you call it, sublimation printing is a versatile, digital printing method that opens up a world of opportunities to any consumer of decorated goods.
Sublimation is a process by which sublimation dyes are printed onto a transfer medium with a specially prepared inkjet printer suited with Sublimation Dyes. Thereafter, those dyes are then transferred from the medium ( sublimation transfer paper) to an object or garment under the heat and pressure delivered by a commercial heat press. Sublimation only works on garments made of polyester, or on specialty objects made of polyester or given a polyester coating and light colored object work best with white showing truest color. When the heat and pressure are applied, the dye on the transfer medium sublimates, or becomes a gas, and is then absorbed into the polyester itself; the print is actually a part of the garment/coating. It doesn’t fade easily, wear, or have any texture or weight. The product is washable and microwave safe. The whole process is of individually manual operation; therefore it is suitable for personalized gifts or promotional products. Naturally, its price is brought slightly higher accordingly than normal similar products.
YOU CANNOT SUBLIMATION ON BLACK OR DARK COLORED CLOTHING. A GOOD RULE IS YOUR PRINTED TRANSFER SHOULD BE DARKER THAN YOUR SHIRT TO SHOW.
3: Design the image or quote for your vinyl. Once you have it set, be sure to mirror the image then cut vinyl on your machine.
6. Once your heat press reaches the desired temperature, place your garment on the heat press, and then place your weeded vinyl cutout where you want it. Press for 15 seconds, making sure the pressure is adjusted properly.
7. Once it’s done, open up your heat press, peel off the vinyl backing. Then adjust the heat setting to 400* for sublimation.
8. Once your heat press reaches 400* place your printed transfer image face down over the vinyl, cover it with the non stick sheet, and then press for 60 seconds.
9. Once it beeps, lift the press, remove the non stick sheet, peel the paper off, and admire your work!
This is excellent choice for a customer who wants something on a black or dark shirt, even cotton shirt...
