What factors promote dye sublimation printing walking forward?

Sublimation transfer printing appeared in the 1930s-1970s, and swept Europe,the United States and Japan,etc regions. from the historical data, its development process is rather special, out of many people's expectations, neither as optimistists predictions, sublimation printing didn't has an absolute market share in the textile printing, nor as the pessimists said that slow development, or even stagnation, decline down. dye-sublimation transfer technology in China has developed rapidly, the application is very extensive. In addition, due to its small investment equipment, printing outstanding results, pollution-free, saving resources and other reasons, causing great concern to the relevant government departments.
At present, the real large-scale commercial and industrial digital printing technology is mainly sublimation transfer printing technology. With the introduction of the domestic price advantage of sublimation ink (sublimation transfer ink mainly in Korea and Italy, the quality of the most famous (Italy quality J-TECK ink, Kiian; South Korea quality InkTec sublinova ink), and printing technology Of the digital, dye-sublimation transfer technology applications become more extensive. In summary, the dye-sublimation transfer technology has the following four characteristics:
1.Good printing result.
Adopting sublimation transfer printing technology, fine print fabric, colorful, rich and clear level, high artistic, three-dimensional sense, which is difficult to realize by the general method of printing, and it also can print photography and painting style of the pattern.
2.Soft touching feeling and long lifetime without fade.
Sublimation transfer is the biggest characteristic of the dye can go through into the polyester or fiber, finished prints will be very soft and comfortable, the basic feel the presence of ink. In addition, since the ink in the transfer process has been dry, making the life of the image and the clothing itself as long life, will not appear printed graphics wear and tear, affecting the appearance of the fabric, and it cannot fade.
3.Simple steps of dye sublimation printing, high flexibility
4.Save resources and environmental-friendly
Different from traditional textile printing, sublimation transfer printing operates without steaming, washing and other post-processing process, save a lot of water resources, and no sewage, can save resources and protect the environment.

The requirements for sublimation transfer paper on heat transfer printing

Transfer printing Printed transfer paper,good quality sublimation paper will affect transfer prints on textile, so the use of transfer paper should have the following characteristics:
(1) Have sufficient strength;
(2) The affinity of the ink color is small, but the transfer paper on the ink to have a good coverage, which mean good sublimation paper should have great ink absorbed capacity.
(3) Heat transfer paper in the printing process should not be deformed, crisp and yellowed.
(4) Transfer paper should have appropriate moisture absorption. Poor hygroscopicity can cause color ink color; moisture absorption is too large, will cause the deformation of the transfer paper. Therefore, the production of transfer paper to strictly control the filler. To use the paper industry, semi-filler is more appropriate.
According to the above requirements, the transfer paper should meet the following standards:

  • Hygroscopicity 40 - 100g / ㎡
  • Tear strength of about 100kg / 5x20cm
  • Permeability 500 --- 2000l / min
  • PH value of 4.5 - 5.5
  • Dirt does not exist


The transfer paper is preferably made of softwood pulp. One of the chemical pulp and mechanical pulp production method better each half. This can ensure that the paper in the high-temperature processing Bu Zhiyu crisp, yellow.
About storage:
In order to protect unused sublimation paper, it is recommended to store it in its original packaging, in the poly bag at 68°F -82°F( 20°C -28°C) and 40-60% RH.

Simple steps to make customized T-shirt

There are five simple steps that you can adhere to if you aim to easily make you own t shirt. The skill in printing iron-on transfers is necessary if you are aiming to put up a custom t-shirt venture on your own. Some entrepreneurs are intimidated by this, not knowing that it is actually very easy to learn how to do so. You will be surprised how iron-on sublimation transfer printing can be an easy and non-technical skill that you can instantly learn and be an expert about.

You can design your own t-shirt and instantly proceed to make your own t shirt, whether for business or personal purposes. It is important to note that before you design your own t-shirt, it is necessary to set your mind about the goals and targets in the venture. You need to also prepare several equipment and materials, like an inkjet printer (this can be of any brand), iron-on A4 sublimation transfer papers, an electric iron (the one you use at home), a shirt where you want to print the design and spare pieces of such shirts for test fabric.

After preparing the equipment and materials, you can proceed to design your own t-shirt. You can use a little creativity when doing so. You can have your own concept or adopt an existing design based on anything, from paintings, to logos to other art pieces. Produce your own design, use an image-editing software or any iron-on transfer computer program. When printing your design on a test print paper, remember to print a mirror image, so that the real image orientation will be printed on the shirt. The second step as you begin to initially make your own t shirt is to print the design or image on the iron-on transfer paper.

Third, prepare the test shirt or fabric for initial printing or image transferring from the iron-on transfer paper. Lay down the fabric on a hard surface, as if you are ironing a cloth. Now put the iron-on transfer paper with the design on top, the design facing or touching the shirt. Put a paper bag or cardboard beneath the front and back portions of the shirts so the design will not be transferred on both sides.




Finally, iron the image onto the shirt. Use the iron machine's hottest setting to ensure a smooth and hassle free
transfer. While the shirt and paper are still hot, peel off the iron-on transfer paper and allow the shirt to cool down. Now, you have succeeded in your effort to make your own t shirt. Look at the product and see if you can appreciate it before marketing it or giving it away.

How to DIY sublimation fashion clothing


Sublimation printing, also referred to as dye sublimation printing, is a printing method for transferring images onto a substrate (usually a cloth material such as polyester). Sublimation refers to a process where a substance moves from a solid to a gas state without ever being in a liquid state. Sublimation printing normally involves the use of a digital printer to produce mirrored images on sublimation transfer paper that has been specially coated with a transfer material.

I will introduce some steps to your guys how to DIY sublimation clothing for yourselves.

1.Firstly, we should have sublimation transfer paper.
2.we also need inkjet printer,such as  Mimaki / Roland / Mutoh / Eposn / Ricoh / Starfire / Konica / China-Made printer with Epson DX5 / DX6 / DX7 / 5113
3.Print your image in reverse, and be careful not to touch the sublimation ink. It will stay wet until the next step.
4.Carefully lay it down on the fabric where you want the graphic and iron it down. Make sure your iron is set on NO steam. I ironed about 60 seconds to make sure everything was in place.
5.After you’re ironed down, put the runner on a hard surface (like a table) and use something to burnish down the paper even more. I did it with and without this step – it really does make a big difference! Just rub, rub, rub and make sure that you’ve went over all of the graphic.
6.Then peel off the paper – and you’re done! The ironing makes the paper grab to the fabric, so it’ll be a bit like peeling off tape.
7.At last,the perfect work done!
Enjoy your DIY time.

DTG digital printing VS Sublimation heat transfer printing


DTG: It's like an inkjet printer that prints directly on the shirt. The upside, you can print on cottons, and it's no more costly to make 1 shirt than it is to make 100 (the 'per shirt' ink cost and time are fixed). That being said, it's not cheap. The ink costs can range from 1.60 a shirt, to 6.00 a shirt, depending on how often you use it, and how much ink you're blowing through by constantly cleaning the lines, print head, etc. It's a very new technology, and there's still a lot of bugs to be worked out. We looked into developing a DTG printer a few years ago, and our findings were that the technology just isn't ready for the kind of quality and reliability our customers expect from us. It's neat, but that's about it.

It does require the use of a heat press to set the image, so it's similar to dye sublimation in that sense, but that's about where the similarities stop. Dye sublimation uses a normal Epson inkjet printer, outfitted with a special print head, and bulk ink system, to print sublimation inks on to a transfer paper, this transfer is then used in the heat press to "sublimate" the image onto the product. Basically, it turns the ink from a solid, to a gas, bypassing the liquid state, and the gas ink dyes the material, hence the 'dye' in dye sublimation. It's a super-slick way to print photos or anything else on to shirts, license plate frames, clocks, plaques, mugs, or anything else that is sublimation-ready.

How to heat transferred image on pure cotton fabric with sublimation paper?

As we all know, sublimation transfer paper has a limit for its substrates. before, sublimation transfer paper can print on polyester or polyester-based fabric,and its disadvantage is that it cannot print on 100% cotton fabric.
As a professional sublimation paper manufacturer in inkjet digital printing, Fei Yue Paper Inc. always keep Innovation for digital printing, and we develop new method to make up with this problem.

Before, if we want to print on cotton fabric. we choose T-shirt heat transfer paper for Light/Dark cotton t-shirt. but now, today, i will introduce a new technology---subli-cotton paper, which can help sublimation paper print on cotton fabric, and get a higher print result.

All of this innovation is based on subli-cotton paper, which like a film coating polyester powder. put subli-cotton film on cotton fabric, then heat by heat press machine, then you can find this film has penetrate into cotton, so it like polyester coating layer on cotton fabric, then print picture on sublimation paper with sublimation ink; finally, heat transfer images from sublimation paper to cotton fabric. it's done.

How to Dig potential Dye Sublimation Printing Market?

Anyway there are instances where wholesale companies send you some items that you can test with, especially if you are going to pay for the shipment. If you are ordering offshore, try to ask how the fabric substrate is made which would include the materials and processes used. In addition, remember that the lowest price is not always the best.
      The first thing to do is to determine your target market. Are you going for graphic designs on mouse pads? Try checking out that competition in that category. See what big Asian companies are marketing mouse pads for. They are going to be your main competitors. In case you'll steer away from them and target the smaller market within decent margins, study the local competition for the said product. Be sure to know what clients are going to benefit for the product itself.

       If you'll go with mugs, check again with the Asian market, especially China, to see prices and how the mugs are being sold. If you find the rate to be outrageously low, look over the local market. If it's okay with you to personally contact targeted clients in the local area, you can create your own market of clients who probably don't want to purchase loads of boxes of box, but may order a few hundred dozens. You might be able to compete in that locally targeted market. And then you'll require a really good and dye sublimation printing machine. It would depend on the product and target market you are looking at. If for mugs or mouse pads, you'll want the smaller printer. If for large format displays like banners, you'll need a wide format printer.

Some suggestion to choosing sublimation printing clothing

Sublimation - as related to chemistry, is defined as "To cause (a solid or gas) to change state without becoming liquid". For example, dry ice changes to gas without ever becoming liquid.

The sublimation process imprints images into polyester, or polyester coated objects by applying dyes that turn from a solid to gas when heated. When the sublimation dye is placed next to polyester and heated, at approximately 325 degrees the polyester molecules open. The sublimation dye, which at this time is a gas, will then be able to penetrate the surface of the polyester. After the heat is removed, the polyester molecules will close and permanently trap the sublimation dyes, thus the image, into the polyester substrate.Nowadays, more and more textile industries adopt dye sublimation printing technology for their garment printing, for its high transfer rate, long lasting,fastness and convenience.

Well there has to be a catch! The truth is, sublimation does have some restrictions. As a retailer you have to keep certain things in mind while choosing or ordering these wholesale sublimation clothing.
These are the things you have to watch out for:




1.White/Light garments only. Sublimated color blend with the color on which they are printed, so the best result comes from printing on white garments. As it is more expensive, you can choose to have an entire garment printed.

2.Polyester garments only. But the material should not be that heavy. The largest amount of modern performance fabrics, moisture-wicking fabrics, and the like are made of polyester. Comfortable, even cotton-like textured garments are being made in sublimation-friendly polyester.

3. Higher price per piece in large runs. There comes a point when a large enough run of sublimation will become more expensive than traditional screen printing. That said, even if the blanks are slightly more expensive, for small runs, the reduced setup fees often make sublimation more economical for full-color or photo-realistic designs.

How can sublimation ink work on polyester fiber?

Sublimation printing accounts for around 6% of textile printing in the world. It is mainly applied to Polyester fabrics and uses disperse inks. These inks have the ability to move from a solid to a gas directly. The inks are printed on lightweight paper which acts as a carrier.
Sublimation - as related to chemistry, is defined as "To cause (a solid or gas) to change state without becoming liquid". For example, dry ice changes to gas without ever becoming liquid. The sublimation process imprints images into polyester, or polyester coated objects by applying dyes that turn from a solid to gas when heated. When the sublimation dye is placed next to polyester and heated, at approximately 325 degrees the polyester molecules open. The sublimation dye, which at this time is a gas, will then be able to penetrate the surface of the polyester. After the heat is removed, the polyester molecules will close and permanently trap the sublimation dyes, thus the image, into the polyester substrate.

Polyester fibres are chains of molecules. Imagine that a single fibre is a made up of lots of strands of beads. At everyday ambient temperatures the beads are very tightly packed together yet pliable.

  • Polyester softens as it is heated and imagine that the tight strands of beads begin to move apart at temperatures between 175 – 220 C.
The Disperse inks, printed on the sublimation paper, at these temperatures move from a solid to a gas. They will happily move into the spaces in the open molecular chain.
  • Colour is trapped inside when the fibres cool down.

The fabric and paper are put in a machine at temperatures around 205C for 25 seconds. When the paper is peeled back from the fabric, exiting the machine, the design has been transferred onto the fabric.
The print moves from the paper to the fabric without water but by the regulated application of heat and dwell time.

Solutions for solve color problems when inkjet printing

Inkjet printers have become the preferred technology for producing hard copies from digital photographic images. Inkjet printers produce these images by spraying ink droplets onto the paper. The droplets themselves are very small, between 50 and 60 microns in diameter, and the ink dries quickly. The finer the droplet ejection, the higher the resolution of the resulting image. The inks are contained in the ink cartridges and, when the cartridges are dry, they can be replaced by OEM printer cartridges or ink refill kits.

Photographers often complain that they use inkjet printers to print images that do not match the color of their digital photos. Why is that? Is there any photographer can do to synchronize two color profiles more closely?

The printed picture looks different from the image on the LED screen or the monitor because the printer uses subtraction to create the color. The printed colors are actually subtracted from the light of their printed white paper to make the other colors stand out. In order to do so, the primary colors of ink jet printer inks are not red, blue and yellow, but cyan, magenta, yellow and black(C M Y BK). Using these four colors, the inkjet printer can reproduce the entire spectrum of the other colors.

The color problem of an ink jet printer generally involves a mismatch between what the photographer sees on a computer monitor and what he or she sees on an inkjet printer. They can be resolved by calibrating the display's color profile to the printer's color profile. Most inkjet printers can print according to the specifications of the various monitor profiles, but if the monitor and the inkjet printer do not use the same color profile, the printer output will turn off.

A color profile should be created for each specific printer, heat transfer paper, and ink combination, as each of these three variables helps to print the quality of the photo. The color and absorbency of the paper are different and the resolution of the printer is different. You must also consider ink formulations in printer cartridges or ink-filled kits.

Photographers often blame the color mismatch they see on the printer settings, or the problem that often arises when they are in the room where the light quality of the room is being monitored. Daylight is the best light source for judging the true color of the print.

Why sometimes transfer lines appears when dye sublimation printing?

Transfer lines are where you end up with a faint line in the fabric that corresponds to where the edges of the transfer sheet were located during pressing. They are caused by the shirt fibers melting along the edges of the transfer sheet. If you are an Embroiderer, transfer lines look kind of like hoop marks, except they are permanent!

The white line is heat transfer line
Your first option for preventing transfer lines on apparel is to experiment with your heat press settings. Consider dropping the temperature down to 385℉ and reducing the pressure to a very light setting. You might also cut back the pressing time from 60 seconds to about 35 seconds. Changes should be made
gradually, as too much variance from the standard settings could affect image quality.

One important thing to remember with apparel, is that different garments may need different settings. Regardless of which approach you use, be sure to document your settings for future reference.


These are some of the most common issues encountered by Sublimators, and each of them is relatively easy to resolve. If you are still having trouble, then make sure you contact your equipment supplier to discuss. Don’t let production challenges slow you down or intimidate you. Most issues can be resolved over the phone! But first you have to make the call.

How does Moisture Issues affect Sublimation Printing?

The introduction of moisture into the sublimation process can cause unwanted results. During production with a heat press operating at 400 degrees, that moisture can flash to steam and literally blow away the ink from its intended target. Some of the problems that are attributed to moisture include: color shifting (colors lose accuracy), bleeding of the image, and uneven transfer of solid filled areas.

Under normal circumstances, a small amount of moisture can accumulate in your transfer paper and it’s usually absorbed directly into the substrate during heat pressing. However, hard substrates like metal and ceramic are unable to absorb excess moisture. Thus, it's important that you take steps to minimize the introduction of moisture into the process.
The first step is to protect the sublimation paper from moisture absorption. As a preventative measure, you should store your paper in dry place. Avoid using Zip-Top plastic bags as they can actually trap moisture within.If you suspect moisture, set the paper on your press for a few seconds. Do not press it. Just expose it to the warmth. The heat radiating from the press should help evaporate most of the moisture.

Another trick is to use newsprint or butcher paper instead of a Teflon sheet. The sublimation paper will help absorb moisture from the transfer sheet during pressing (Teflon will not). Be sure to use a fresh sheet of paper on each pressing.
If you are working with garments or fabric, it's also possible that the substrate may contain a bit of moisture. Pre-pressing the garment for about 3 seconds, should remove the moisture and any wrinkles as well. Do not overheat the substrate! Applying a sublimated transfer to a hot surface will start the gassing process prematurely, which may lead to ghosting.

In addition, you should focus on your work environment. If there is a high level of humidity present, it may be contributing to the moisture issues. A de-humidifier may be necessary to help control humidity issues. However, reducing it too much can have negative effects on the inks and your equipment. Thus, you should invest in a hygrometer and take some readings. The ideal operating conditions for sublimation are 70– 80℉ with 35% - 65% relative humidity (no condensation).
