The Development Tendency of Sublimation Transfer Paper

   Transfer paper has been developing in the direction of better quality, wider width and lower weight. At the same time, it is also changing quietly in production methods and application functions.Sublimation printing

   1. Paper performance. By developing high-efficiency coatings to reduce the amount of paper coating, the paper surface is more flat, and it is also more suitable for applications in poor environments such as dry and high temperature environments. It can also be applied to various types of inkjet printers to effectively reduce customer inventory.

   2. Changes in production methods. At present, the production process of transfer paper is: purchase the basic paper first, and then coated the paper with a coating machine. The transportation cost is high and the loss is large. As the demand for transfer paper increases, the in-machine coating will becomes the development trend in the future , the off-machine coating will be mainly applied to advanced paper production and processing.applications of sublimation paper

   3. The function is more powerful. In the future, the transfer paper will also develop in a direction with higher quality and higher transfer rate, so the color is more beautiful, the operation is more convenient, and the VOCs emissions is less.

   Now the widest sublimation paper is 3.2m, and the weight range from 50g to 140g. If you are searching for such a kind of sublimation paper, welcome to contatc us.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN SUBLIMATION PRINTING BUSINESS?

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

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.

WHY POLYESTER WORKS SO WELL IN DYE SUBLIMATION PRINTING?

dye sublimation printingDye sublimation is an advanced printing method that involves transferring text or graphic images onto items. When it comes to picking a fabric for dye sublimation printing, polyester is the best choice. Here is why polyester works so well in dye sublimation printing:

1. Beautiful, lasting printed colors
Dye sublimation printing consists of the following steps:
1) A graphic or text is digitally printed on sublimation transfer paper.
2) The transfer paper is placed in a heat press. The heat press helps sublimate the print onto a fabric.

It’s important to test fabrics before dye sublimation printing. Due to high heat, with temperatures ranging from 380 to 400 degrees, a fabric may easily burn. Heat is used to convert the dye sublimation ink into a gaseous state.

Fabrics such as cotton, nylon, etc. cannot hold the ink during the heating process.  Polyester is the only material that can enable the bonding of the ink and ensure beautiful, long lasting colors. This is why national flags, banners and graphic t-shirts are made of polyester.

2. Fade-resistant
Printed graphics, text or logo on polyester fabric will not crack, fade or diminish. No matter how many times you wash it, the printed image won’t come off or lose color.

On the other hand, printed images on a cotton fabric can chip or peel off. Cotton is prone to fading, especially after repeated washing.

If you are looking for permanent printing then polyester is the best one. Printed images are embedded in the fabric’s substrate rather than printed on the surface.

3. Rich printed colors
Last but not least, polyester ensures rich printed colors. As sublimation dye is converted to gas during heating, the fabric’s tone blend into each other. The final product looks absolutely stunning.

4. Percentage of polyester in a fabric
It’s a good idea to use a 100 percent polyester fabric to achieve the best result. But, you can even work with at least 60 percent polyester fabric.
