Steps To Test Sublimation Transfer Paper Samples

Sample testing is really important in sublimation. If you need a large amount procurement of sublimation transfer papers, we recommend you to get some samples and arrange a test first.

Sublimation is a family that made up with 3 important roles: Inkjet Printer, sublimation ink and sublimation paper. They stick tightly to each other,and can not work with the absence of any one, just like an triangle.

Since many clients don’t know exactly how to test sublimation paper sample and identify the quality of sublimation paper comprehensively. Following advises are given by our production technologists and researchers based on their profession.

1.Test Reports

Check the test reports of the sublimation transfer paper which are given by your supplier. The testing reports are made in the original lab by the researching people, it contains every vital factor of the paper, and all the datas are authoritative and credible.

2. Check the appearance of the paper when you receive the sample.

1) Smoothness: Smoothness could be identified easily by looking at the surface of the sublimation paper roll . With a good quality sublimation paper , the printing surface is very smooth.Because if the printing surface is too rough (sometimes you could see small particles on the surface in a bad paper), it will scratch the high-precision piezo print head and hurt it very badly.
2) Impurity : Check if there are many small dots on the paper. When you are
transferring pure color (only one color) , the dots will influence the transfer result seriously.

3. Test the paper with your equipment

1) Drying Time: When you are printing the paper, you could test the drying time.
A quick-dry paper will improve your working efficiency a lot.
2) Transfer yield : This is the MOST IMPORTANT. The transfer efficiency is ,First how much ink the paper could deliver to the textile during the transfer process, Second, the color restoration.
3) The final testing result is related with your printer and ink, when your firstly test the paper and the result doesn’t come very ideal, you’d better adjust your printing and transfer setting based on the sample.

How Do Base Papers Affect Quality Of Sublimation Papers?

In the market, there are two distinctive quality sublimation paper: the top notch one and the monetary one. One reason that reason the quality distinction is the base paper.

sublimation paper1. High Quality base paper

This sort of base paper is made up with needlebush pulp(softwood) and broadleaf pulp(hardwood), the proportion is 7:3 regularly.

The fiber is longer, it implies the intension of the transfer paper and the capacity of suffering high temperature is better, that will ensure the paper still have best intension in persistent creation process under high temperature, that could shield your paper from breaking which will cause severely impact to your generation.

Additionally the snugness is more noteworthy, above 0.9g/cm3, the air penetrability is littler. In the event that the thightness is littler, at that point the air porousness is more noteworthy, that implies during the exchange, the sublimation ink will infiltrate the base paper and spread to the rear, and impact the exchange result.

2. Economic base paper

This sort is made up with different sorts of blended mash of waste paper, for example, newspaper, pressing paper and so on from our every day life or mechanical waste paper. Regardless of the intension, the ability of suffering high temperature, the snugness, the air permeablility, it is flimsier than the up-grade base paper.

How to Remain the Color When We Change Roll Sublimation Paper?

One common issue in sublimation printing is: How to remain the same color when we change roll sublimation paper? As we all know, when changing a new paper, the color changes into the one that is different from before, or it does not show the real color you want, etc.

As a professional sublimation paper manufacturer, our job is not only providing quality material to our customers but also helping them solve the issues. So don’t worry, we are going to talk about it now.
When we meet this condition in the process of sublimation printing, we will be very anxious and worried, and our first reaction would be: the sublimation transfer paper is bad, I was cheated, I have to talk with my vendor now, right now! Actually, it isn’t the answer.

First, the color changes don’t mean the dye sublimation paper is bad.  When we want to deliver sublimation ink into the sublimation transfer paper, we use an inkjet printer, which does not have a brain. It does not know what to do unless we tell them what to do. So communication is necessary. But the printer does not talk the 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 color space. So tell the devices what to do, they will do the right job for us. ICC profile is necessary, do not ignore it.

Second, according to some customers, they buy the paper from the same vendor every time, but every time, the color is different. I inquired our engineer typically, his answer was: That’s because their base paper changes. When some customers pay more attention to reducing the price, some companies decide to use cheaper and cheaper raw material in order to win the business from them. In this case, it is because of the paper quality. Customers should pay attention to it.

Anyway, in the sublimation industry, if you are lucky in using the right paper, no problems occur; if you are using the wrong roll sublimation paper, many problems could happen, and the problems will be more and more.
