T-shirt Printing, DTG Or Sublimation Printing?

   When it comes to t-shirt printing, there are many equipment, and the most common devices are DTG printer and sublimation printer. Then, what’s the differences between them?DTG printer

   DTG is pretty much like using a printer to print on fabric. Because it works like a printer, it can support the most detailed design, with as many colors as you want. The printer can only print one garment at a time, which makes it perfect for printing one-off t-shirts.

   Sublimation printing is the process of printing onto a special sheet of paper, and then transferring that image onto fabric. The ink is heated until it disintegrates into the corresponding fabric. That makes the ink long-lasting, and you’ll never have the unfortunate “peeling” effect of a well-worn t-shirt.

   If you want to print on cotton t-shirt, then we suggest you choose the DTG printer. If you print polyester t-shirt, then you can choose a sublimation printer.

   1. The first coating: pre-coating
   As we all know, it is hard to guarantee the evenness of the base paper, sometimes you can see some impurities or holes on the paper. Because of that, the surface of the paper will not be smooth, and even hurt the print head when sublimation printing. The pre-coating is a process which can help us make the surface of paper become smooth.

   2. The second coating: sublimation coating
   This is the most important step, and also the essential step for making sublimation transfer paper. This layer are used to absorb the sublimation ink when inkjet printing.

   3. The final coating: back-coating
   Many paper manufactures will choose back-coating, because it can help the paper become more hard, and then become anti-curl. One of the headache problem for sublimation printers is the crimp of paper, this problem will not only affect the quality of printing, but also harmful for the print head. The back-coating can help you solve this problem effectively.
