Many users have had great success with sublimation; they have achieved consistent results every time. The images are bright, vivid, and match the colors that they have desired. A few users have had some problems with their images and here are some of the most common mistakes made when using sublimation. We have duplicated mistakes purposely so that you can compare with our results!

Nozzle Check problems
If the color of your image is off. For example, if your image has a red tint, or other color tints, there’s a high chance that it is because your nozzles are not firing properly in your sublimation printer.Everyday, I always print a nozzle check before I start printing as this will ensure that all nozzles are firing. We suggest daily nozzle checks to prevent virtually all clogs

Printing on the wrong side of the paper
You may be printing on the wrong side of the paper. As stated above, the coated side of the sublimation paper is brighter than the uncoated side. So be sure to print on the brighter side. If you are printing on the wrong side of the paper, you will get the same result as when you use plain paper.

What Are the Benefits of Digital Textile Printing for Your Business?

Digital printing technology has changed virtually every industry it’s touched. Through digital textile printing, you can achieve new levels of precision, and creative expression. Today, we are going to talk about the benefits of it.

How Does It Work?

digital textile printingDigital textile printing is ink-jet technology that can print designs directly onto a garment, a t-shirt or dress for example, or can be used to produce larger quantities of fabric. It’s similar to an ink-jet paper printer, really!

In the past, rotary screen printing was used to produce large quantities of printed fabric. In rotary screen printing, each run usually produces several thousand yards of printed fabric. One of the advantages of  textile printing is the ability to make smaller runs.

Different inks are used depending on the type of fabric (polyester, lycra, spandex, etc). During the printing process, fabric is run through rollers, while ink is applied to the surface. After this, heat and/or steam is used to cure the ink, and “set” it into the fabric.

Designs can be created digitally, using any graphic design software, like Photoshop. Existing images can also be used, whether scanned or found online.

What Are The Benefits?

There are several benefits to digital textile printing, including:

1. Virtually endless creative freedom

If you can create it digitally, you can print it! Digital textile printing means a world of creative possibility.

2. Small batches

You can make runs as small as one yard, versus the several thousand usually produced in traditional textile printing. This is helpful if you just want to create a few garments, or if you want to customize each run.

3. It’s fast

You can have your finished prints within days or weeks, depending whether you have a printer onsite.

4. It’s environmentally friendly

Digital textile printing uses precise measurements of inks and dyes when printing, resulting in little to no waste. Everything is printed “on-demand.

How Can We Avoid Humidity Affect Sublimation Printing?

Many things may affect the effect of sublimation process, including substrate and sublimation paper. Let’s talk about the common situation:

1. Color shifting (colors lose accuracy)
2. Image bleeding
3.Uneven transfer of solid filled areas of a design.

It will be very low and the worse situation is caused by paper touching the printing head. Most of customers may have this problem. Therefore, it is very important to control indoor humidity.

I suggest each customer should have a hygrometer to measure temperature and relative humidity (RH).

How can we do to avoid the effect of humidity of sublimation printing? So the followings are important humidity factors you should focus:

1.Avoid the moisture that comes with your clothes.

First you should restore your sublimation paper carefully. They should be placed in a cool & dry place to avoid direct sunlight. When dealing with your clothes, if you suspect there may be moisture in it, you can pre-press the clothes for about five seconds to warm it.

2.Control the indoor humidity

You should control the indoor humidity from 50 to 60%. The 50-60% humidity helps keep paper smooth printing, and also make sublimation paper and sublimation ink dry quick. If the indoor humidity is too high, you can open your air condition to create a dry room of stable humidity and temperature. But it may cost you a lot of budget.
