There are various items that can be printed using dye sublimation. Heat transfer papers are wonderful innovations that allow printing on various surfaces. This can be used to print on a variety of surfaces and create wonderful designs on T-shirts, bags and other materials. They are very economical and make the entire printing process cost effective. There are different types of papers that can be used on different surfaces.
The most common heat transfer papers are inkjet transfer papers. These come in two types - for dark colored fabric and for light colored fabric. Heat transfer papers for dark color fabric are white in color. Unlike normal, where the transfer paper is put so as to horizontally mirror the image, here it is printed the way it is. The image is simply put on the white background and printed. All the colors will be printed as they should be. In heat transfer paper for light color fabric, where the paper is transparent, white cannot be printed. The color of the fabric will show where it should show white. A fabric that is printed with inkjet is not as easily washable. Washing instructions need to be carefully followed if you want the fabric to last longer.The second type of heat transfer paper is dye sublimation heat transfer paper. A dye sublimation heat transfer is used to print on white or light colored fabric. For dye sublimation printing, the substrate must be polyester or a mix of cotton and polyester with the polyester percentage being at least 50%. Microfiber and nylon substrates can be used too. In this process, a dye sublimation printer is used with sublimation ink. The advantage in this form of printing is that the printer ink directly transforms into gas without going through the liquid stage. So, there is no time needed for drying. Any material with a polymer coating can be used for this type of printing.
When polymer coated items are sublimated, the finishing is so good that the print is not even felt when a hand is run over it. Sublimation printer ink cartridges is translucent. As a result, white substrates emit the right colors. Ash gray color also makes a good substrate for dye sublimation printing.One of the latest technologies involves using a color laser printer heat transfer paper. This is a new technology and some success has been had in this form of printing.
These days, many manufacturers and printers using this to create and design stuff that are being sold at huge profits. The cost involved in printing is quite less than normal printing and that is why this form of printing has become so popular in recent years. More advanced technology will surely follow but till that time, heat transfer papers will rule.The best printing method on clothing is dye sublimation printing because there is no ink buildup that will prevent wicking of moisture away from the body. On fabric graphic displays, or art reproductions that are used indoors, the colors are guaranteed to last for 30 years or longer because they are encased in the sealed polymer cells.
