What Influence the Sublimation Printing Quality?

   What will influence the quality of the sublimation printing?Here are some common reasons.sublimation ink

   1. Temperature and time
   The sublimation transfer process requires the temperature to be controlled in the 180℃~230℃, the time is about 10~30s, at the same time pay attention to the reasonable allocation of temperature and time.

   2. The sublimation ink
   Dye sublimation ink should have good transfer rate and permeability. and reach a certain fastness index, the molecular weight is 230~380.

   3. The pressure when heat pressing
   When the pressure is not enough, there will be a big gap between transfer paper and fabric, this will lead to poor result. If the pressure is far to enough, it is easy to produce deformation, which will lead to failure printing.

   4. Other factorssublimation printing

   The sublimation paper quality should be taken into consideration, the sample test is essential before bulk production, and make sure the sublimation paper and fabric are close enough when heat pressing.

   There may many other reasons. But as long as you pay attention to the whole process, you will learn a lot of sublimation printing.

Something about Large Format Sublimation Printing

   With the development of sublimation paper, manufacturers have developed more and more sublimation paper we don’t have before. As we all know, it is hard to find the low-weight sublimation paper with 3.2m width, because for large format sublimation paper, the lighter, the easier to crimp. But now we overcome the difficulties, and you can find the low weight 3.2m sublimation transfer paper in the market. For us, the weight of 3.2m sublimation paper can range from 50g to 140g.3.2m sublimation paper

   Then what can we do with 3.2m large format sublimation paper?

   If you have bought the sublimation printer before you will large format printerfound that the 3.2m sublimation printer is not common in the market, and most of them are made in China. Such as our Oric inkjet printer. And 3.2m sublimation paper are designed for this kind of large format printer.

   With large format sublimation printer, the production speed can be improved a lot. For example, you can print 2 images at once when you use a small format inkjet printer, but you can print 4 or more images at once with 3.2m sublimation paper, right?

   Besides when you want to print on large format textiles like bed sheet, curtails, you do need large format sublimation paper and large format sublimation printer.

As most of you know, there are lots of unique ways to create printed tees. And while many of them are great for a variety of reasons, today, we are focusing on sublimation printing.

sublimation printingWhat is Sublimation printing?

Sublimation is the process of printing a special sublimation ink onto special sublimation transfer paper using a sublimation printing technique. Instead of traditional inkjet transfers which print ink on top of the shirt or item you’re working with. Sublimation ink actually becomes a part of the substrate you’re printing on. Once the ink from your sublimation transfer paper is heat pressed onto the item you’re printing on, it opens up the pores of the fabric that you’re pressing heat onto. Once you press the paper onto your item and release pressure, the heat will cool and the ink will turn back into solid form. The pores will close permanently and encapsulate the ink within the polymer coating of your item. So the ink turns from a solid to a gas and them back into a solid.

Benefits of Sublimation Printing

This process works wonders in our eyes because it ensures that the image you transfer onto your item won’t fade over time. The finish is also smooth, soft, and stylish because it literally becomes one with the substrate. This is perfect if you want to keep the soft-hand feel of the original garment. Another reason we love this process is the fact that it allows you to print full color transfers and heat press them onto your shirts instead of setting up tons of screens for traditional screen printing.

Sublimation-Friendly Garments

sublimation printing

When doing a sublimation print, only the polyester yarns in a garment will hold the ink. It leads a lot of people often think sublimation only can only be done on items that are 100% polyester. However, we’ve seen customers get great results on our poly-blends! When you do a sublimation print on a shirt that is not 100% poly, you’ll get a print that looks vintage or distressed—which is very popular right now. Keep in mind that sublimation inks are transparent. That means that it’s best to print on white or light colored substrates so your image is transferred properly.

We FeiYue Digital Technology Co., Ltd mainly manages sublimation paper, inkjet printer, digital printing inks, calendering machines and accessories, operating this industry has been more than 10 years experience. After continuous improvement of the product, to ensure product quality can also be profit at the same time to the minimum, to ensure that customers enjoy the best price and the best quality products.
