Most users choose 100% polyester shirts. I've read some post that stated as long as it was at least 65% poly it would work. Some have sublimated to 50/50 shirts to get a retro faded look. But most use 100% poly. Hope this helps

Yes, sublimating flat hard substrates is just as easy as sublimating garments. Each comes with its own instructions regarding time and temperature.

There's a technical definition you can Google but essentially it's the surface you lay your dye sub paper on to imprint.

Hard substrates are bag tags, license plates, etc. Soft ones would be garments.

I could have just as easily said 'surfaces'.

yeah agree with you..Most users choose 100% polyester material. but you also can use mix material such as polycotton as long as it was at least 65% polyester... most order use mix material are usually riders, reunions, classes etc.

hello all,
I am looking for an Epson wide format printer that has an eco tank feature. When I say wide format I mean up to 11x 14 or 17. I don't need anything larger. This printer would be for dye sublimation only.
thank you

They're not cheap. ET7750 is one. Check Epson's webiste for others.
