IMPORTANT SUBLIMATION INFORMATION:
- In a nutshell, sublimation is a type of heat transfer that is often applied to t-shirts and garments, but which can also be applied to many other substrates It’s one of the best ways to create t shirt designs with multiple colors.
- The term ‘sublimation’ refers to the chemical process that occurs when something turns from a solid state into a gas, without first becoming a liquid.
- It is quite different from using a product like heat transfer vinyl, because you are able to print more intricate, detailed, and colorful images.
- Sublimation inks can only bond to synthetic fibers and coatings. For clothing, this means polyester, while other blanks for sublimation are polymer coated products. Dark colored substrates are also no good for sublimation inks.
- THERE IS NO WHITE INK FOR THIS SUBLIMATION PROCESS so note that any areas in the listed image that appear as white, will not print and will be whatever color your background product is
- Cotton t shirts cannot be used for sublimation, and fabrics really need to be at least 80% polyester (some nylons are also suitable) for a vibrant transfer.
- There is a new product called Siser EasySubli which does allow you to print on cotton and dark fabrics. However, this is only because you are printing sublimation ink onto an HTV, and then pressing the HTV to your garment.
