Tacky sublimation paper is only one kind out of many, but it has some very useful properties that can make a printing job go much easier.
How can tacky sublimation paper help?
Tacky sublimation paper is, as you might have surmised from its name, sticky on one side. This is the side that the sublimation ink is printed on, so when you are ready to print your fabric or other product, you can stick the paper onto the product and reposition it as needed. There are two types of tacky sublimation paper; some are tacky to the touch and will stay put when you press it, while others have a chemical that causes it to become tacky once the heat of the heat press activates it. Once it is where you would like it to stay, pressing firmly around the paper will ensure it stays put if it is not the heat-activated tacky paper. It is tacky enough that it will stay put, without being so sticky that it is difficult to remove once the heat press is applied.
How do I know if tacky sublimation paper is right for me?
If you know that you will want to work quickly and accurately without worrying about ruined products, sticky sublimation paper may be right for you. Some people prefer the ease of movement that comes with the non-tacky paper, so it may take some trial and error on your part to decide which kind will best fit your needs. You also need to take your printer into consideration. Right now, tacky paper is only available in rolls, so if your printer is small enough that it only takes sheets, without upgrading equipment it is not likely that tacky paper will work for you. While some people have tried cutting up the sheets, most have found it difficult to store, as they stick to each other when stacked.
