How About the Dye-Sub Paper’s Role in Digital Sublimation Printing Process
The transfer dye-sub process is known for impressive output quality, as well as the lasting bond it forges through sublimation between ink and fabric. However, it does require the added step of printing to dye-sub paper.
We often focus on the printing technologies and the inks that enable dye-sub, but here we look at the high quality heat transfer paper that makes the transfer dye-sub process possible. This media is coated to carry an image printed with dye-sub inks so that it can be transferred to the final media when heated.
Many considerations go into selecting the best transfer paper for a job, including weight and tacky, and it is often based on the end product, such as apparel or signage.
While the weight of dye-sub transfer paper can range from 45 to 120 gsm, the most common weights fall between 70 and 100 gsm. some dye-sub transfer papers also have a light tacky, which is activated by heat. This type of paper is ideal for apparel applications and can help prevent ghosting. it is important to remember that when sublimating, coated transfer paper must be used and the fabric needs to be 100 percent polyester for the best results.
In terms of cost, that the quality transfer paper will range anywhere from 10 to 12 cents per square foot—for non-tack, and tack typically runs about a penny higher per square foot. Using high-quality paper ensures consistent results and releases at least 90 percent of the ink.
