HOW TO GET GOOD TRANSFER RATE FROM SUBLIMATION PRINTING
Category : Tips & Tricks
When we do the sublimation printing, sometimes we will meet that items coming to market have softer than normal polymer coatings. According to well placed industry source, some polymer-coated mugs being coatings so soft, the transfer paper melts into it during the heat press cycle. Not good. The same is true of polyester apparel. Perhaps in a bid to match cotton for its trademark softness and comfort, some manufacturers are turning out polyester garments that are so soft, the standard settings don’t work. It’s a good thing if your customer wants a really soft garment. Not so good if you can’t decorate it properly.
Fortunately there’s a simple solution. Sometimes less is more, even in chemistry. If you’ve been getting good transfers from shirts and you start seeing this consistently faded output, just reduce the temperature. We tried this recently with a batch of shirts. Normally, we get brilliant transfers from these garments by sublimating them for 40 seconds at 230℃. When we started getting consistently faded images, we backed it down to 230℃ for 30 seconds and vivid color! If you’re experiencing the aforementioned mug transfer problem, try pressing at 230° for 30 seconds. The other option is to use a different color mode or profile.
To reduce the possibility of confusing yourself or your staff, it’s always a good idea to start with the recommended industry standards. For polyester apparel, that benchmark is still 230° for 25~35 seconds.
