How to Store Our Sublimation Transfer Paper?

Sublimation transfer paper is one of the main materials of the sublimation printing. In order to ensure the quality of the paper, we should to remember the following suggestions about how to store sublimation paper.

When receive the digital sublimation paper, we should first check whether the appearance of the paper in the transport process is damaged: First, whether transfer paper plastic packaging is broken and packaging cartons is damped. What is more, whether carton serious is deformed, paper roll is deflated. The last, whether packaging carton is piercing, puncture transfer paper, etc. Such a sublimation paper should be rejected.

No matter which type of paper is very sensitive to the humidity in the air, the water content of the paper changes with the humidity of the air. Therefore, sublimation transfer paper is preferably stored in a low humidity environment. And, the ideal storage conditions are relative humidity 40-70% RH, temperature 10-30 ℃, stacked on the stack in order to avoid moisture.

Stacking, such as the shape of the pyramid, or separated according to the width of stacked size, stacking layer should not exceed the limit marked outside the carton, generally not more than 5 layers.

Avoid Direct Sunlight
Paper contains lignin, when it through the sun after insolation, the moisture content of the paper will be evaporated. Then, the sublimation paper will be embrittlement or deformation.

How to Avoid Ghosting in Sublimation Transfer Printing

Ghosting in sublimation transfer printing can ruin an otherwise flawless piece and is particularly common on dark text with a light background. By exercising caution, we can eliminate the “ghosts” and get back to great sublimation. How to aviod ghosting has been a problem of our clients. Today’s article will share some tips about this theme.

The easiest way to prevent ghosting in the digital sublimation printing is to ensure the transfer paper remains stationary when taping your panel to it. Ghosting can happen anytime air or air pressure gets underneath the transfer paper — even when the paper is still taped to the panel. After removing the panel from the heat press, leave the transfer paper taped and untouched until the panel cools. Once cooled, there is no risk of ghosting and you can remove the transfer paper without any concern. Giving the panel time to cool off will help to avoid the duplicate image.

sublimation printing Some sublimators prefer to separate the transfer paper from the panel as soon as they remove the panel from the heat press. Be very cautious, and make sure to detach your transfer paper vertically from the panel. Do not drag it along the hot sublimated surface. You should pull the transfer off in one quick, fluid motion to keep the panel ghost-free.

By taking the time to let your panel cool after pressing it and removing the paper quickly with one fluid motion, you can ensure you’ll end up with a great product that’s ready to promote for any occasion!

dye sublimation printingQuick Tip: For those who are beginners in hard-surface sublimation, remember to conduct extensive research. Take the time to consider exactly what you want to do with dye sublimation printing, especially understanding the tools needed to make the final product. By taking the time initially to understand which tools will work best for your system, you’ll reach perfection with the product you’d like to offer more quickly and successfully.

Common Questions about A Heat Press Machine

Heat press machine is the machine that presses a transfer onto an imprintable substrate. Using high temperatures and heavy pressures for a certain amount of time, the transfer is permanently embedded into the product. Today’s article is going to share some common questions about a calender.

A transfer is made up of a carrier paper and inks. When heated to a certain temperature and pressed with a significant amount of pressure for a certain amount of time, the transfer inks are passed over to the imprintable material. Some inks are adhered and embedded to the surface of the material, while others (namely, sublimation) permeate the coating of the material.

heat press machine Transfers can be heat pressed onto fabrics (both natural and synthetic) using standard plastisol supplier transfers, color copier, or thermal wax & ink-jet computer transfer paper. Heat transfers can also be printed onto mugs, plates, tiles, mouse pads, ceramics, metals, glass and wood. For these substrates, sublimation transfers are used. The important factor when heat pressing with sublimation transfers onto non-natural fabric substrates is to be sure the material has the proper polyester synthetic coating, as well as a UV coating if protection from the sun and other rays is an issue. For this reason it is best to get the materials pre-coated from a supplier.

The following are some of the far more common items often heat pressed by a calender heat transfer machine. But, the list by no means ends here.

* T-Shirts
* Caps
* Ceramic Plates
* Ceramic Tiles
* Mugs
* Mouse Pads
* Tote Bags
* Lettering
* Jigsaw Puzzles
* Wood / Metals
* Paper Memo Cubes
* Rhinestones/Crystals
* Other Misc. Fabrics & Materials
