First, the color changes, doesn’t mean the paper is bad.  When we want to deliver sublimation ink into the sublimation transfer paper, we use an inkjet printer. Printer is a machine that does not have brain, it does not know what to do unless we tell them what to do. So communication is necessary. But printer does not talk human language, so we intelligent human beings , could talk with them in printer’s language, that language is an ICC profile.

An ICC profile is a set of data that characterizes a color input or output device, or a color space,  describe the color attributes of a particular device or viewing requirement by defining a mapping between the device source or target color space. Simply put – a good ICC profile provides an accurate description of the characteristics of a digital device or working colour space. So tell the devices what to do, they will do the right job for us. ICC profile is necessary, do not ignore it.

Should We pay Attention to the Moisture in Sublimation Printing?

   If you are doing sublimation printing, you will know that moisture is an important factor which can influence your normal work. As a sublimation paper supplier, when our customers want us to recommend a suitable paper for them, the first factor we consider is the printing environment, especially the moisture. Then, how does moisture influence the sublimation printing?

sublimation printing

   If everything checks out, moisture may play a role in spotty transfers. Moisture can warp flat items and can act as a barrier between the surface and the sublimation ink trying to penetrate it. This step is not always listed on the instructions, but it is good practice to pre-press items for 5-10 seconds at high heat and light-medium pressure to let moisture escape and flatten out the substrate. For warped items, such as MDF boards, pre-pressing both sides may be necessary.

   If you don’t want to be influenced by the moisture, please let your sublimation paper and other materials keep dry.
