1. Iron On Transfers

Iron on transfers are the best for novices and people that aren’t quite sure what they should do when creating their tee shirts.

Pros:
It is an easy method, so anyone can use it. You don’t have to have any machinery or special inks.

Cons:
The biggest con to iron on transfers is that the sublimation transfer printing paper you get in department stores are often very low quality. There is also no way to trim down your image so there is no background around it.

2. Silk Screen

Another popular process is silkscreen transfer. It is also the most common form of tee-shirt design.

Pros:
The process is very clean and bright. You can be sure that the colors will really pop on your tee shirt, when you are done.

Choose Appropriate Sublimation Printing Paper Based on Your Sublimation Ink

Many friends spend a lot of money on sublimation printing paper. Today, we will give you some tips on choosing appropriate sublimation printing paper based on your sublimation ink to decrease the production cost. Hope this article will be helpful to you.

1. Select the appropriate transfer paper weight according to the amount of ink loading:

Low ink ejection amount: For printing low ink content, 70g, 100g transfer paper should be choosed. As long as the ambient humidity control (air conditioning dehumidification or evaporation humidification) is between 40-60% RH, it can be printed smoothly.

High inkjet volume: For printing large areas of dark patterns, such as dark color block patterns, 120 grams of transfer paper should be choosed, and the ideal ambient humidity is between 60-70% RH. If the user only has 80g, 100g transfer paper, please be careful not to let the transfer paper get damp first. Secondly, please control the humidity of the printing room at 50% RH. If you do this, you can also transfer the paper with a low weight. Smoothly print high ink ejection patterns.

2. Select the appropriate transfer paper weight according to the relative humidity of the printing environment:

Low humidity: Printing under humidity less than 45% RH (no humidification equipment), 80 grams paper should be choosed. Because in a low-humidity environment, the paper shrinks and the entire printing surface is arched upward, and the absorption of ink wrinkles becomes more noticeable during printing, which is relatively stiff for 120 g, 100 g transfer paper. The arch is easy to rub onto the nozzle. The 80 g transfer paper is thin and flexible, which can alleviate the degree of arching and is more easily absorbed by the suction table of the printer without being too arched.

High humidity: Printing in a humidity higher than 70% RH environment (no dehumidification equipment in the printing room), 120 g transfer paper should be choosed. Because in high humidity environment, the paper will absorb moisture immediately, causing the paper to become soft and the stiffness will decrease, and the paper will slowly elongate. Therefore, during the printing, the paper exit shaft will slowly arch up on both sides, passing the pickup roller. The ribs will be pulled out to wipe the nozzle. Because 100 grams, 80 grams of paper in the high humidity environment is not stiff enough, so it will print difficult, 120 grams of paper is relatively stiff, in the case of high humidity, the back is not easy to arch. Even if it is a little arched, the pickup roller will not pull out the ribs and print smoothly.

Several Tips to Make Heat Transfer Paper Reach the Best State

Do you know how to make heat transfer paper reach the best state during the transfer process? Today, we will share several tips for you.

heat transfer paper1.Before a small batch of transfer, you must first make the transfer sample to determine the transfer machine temperature and time that affect the color.

2. Before the transfer, make sure that the transfer paper is dry. This will avoid incomplete transfer and stains.

3. Before the transfer, the pattern and fabric should be blew up to remove the paper and cilia attached to the fabric and transfer paper. It can avoid the printing defects between the paper and the fabric.

4. The occurrence of ghostingis usually due to the speed of separating the plate from the pressure plate too fast. And the air flow of the top plate is absorbed by the inkjet printing paper. At this time, the speed of the cylinder (or the oil cylinder) of the plate heat transfer machine should be slowed down by the small flow valve.It can avoid the transferred paper been sucked up then causes secondary sublimation transfer We can also dip the water into the four corners of the heat transfer paper to avoid sublimation ghosting.

5. As the backing material of the floor (cotton, sponge, cardboard and so on) can cause excessive water vapor in transfer printing after absorption of the moisture content of the ink. So the color of the pattern on the transfer print will get pale, and the local appearance of mist and water will appear. Therefore, before the transfer and during the transfer process, it is often necessary to heat and press the air several times to evaporate the moisture on the lining cotton cloth. If possible, the dry cushion material can be replaced in time to avoid this.
