Which Type of Sublimation Ink is the Best for Sublimation Printing?
If you are searching for a high quality sublimation ink for business, there are some brand I can recommend to you: Kiian, Inktec, Sublinova, J-teck, Sensient, Epson and Chinese Sublistar ink. How to distinguish the quality of the sublimation ink? You can refer to the following tips:
1. Color Reduction
A good quality ink, it must have a very high”color reduction”. Otherwise the transfer result is not vivid. Our high quality sublimation ink ,could restore the original color more than 90% percent.
2. The size of sublimation dye particle
The smaller the particle, the better the quality of the sublimation ink. If the particle is too big, first it will block the printing head. Second the printing result and transfer result will not be fine and smooth,you could see some small particles through magnifying lens.
3. Pure Color
For dye sublimation ink , a very big problem is that the black color is not black enough. If the color is not pure, no doubt it could not restore the original design to your substrate.
4. Ink composition
Some clients often complaint that after printing, the dye sublimation paper dries to slowly. They think it is the sublimation transfer paper problem. Actually the drying time also has something to do with the sublimation ink. Some clients buy the cheap sublimation ink, which the major component is water, not sublimation dye, so in fact , you are printing water to the sublimation paper rather than sublimation ink, no doubt the paper is drying too slowly.
Although we don’t want to admit it, I still have to say that the higher the price, the better the quality.
