Default Using inkjet transfer paper with sublimation ink

Is it possible to use sublimation ink on an inkjet transfer paper and then press it on a cotton shirt?


If not, is there a transfer paper that I would be able to purchase so that I can print sub ink and then press it on to a cotton shirt?


Kind of like this?

I say "kind of" because the person that posted the video didn't come back and answer questions. Also I couldnt find the paper that they used. Video is from 4 yrs ago.



Is this possible? thx in advance.

Here is that transfer's website https://www.xpres.co.uk/subli-dark-t...a4-pack-of-100

It looks to be more of a printed vinyl rather than a transfer paper.

Siser has something similar: https://www.siserna.com/easysubli/. They say its only for Sawgrass printers but others here have successfully used it with other non-Sawgrass sublimation inks.

It is a printed vinyl.


Works OK, but not very long lasting, with a very heavy hand. OK for short term use ( partywear), but not good enough for long term use ( workwear or fashion)
into the T likes this.

Thank you. Let me see if I can find some wash tests on these things.

I have heard some good things about the siser printable vinyl mentioned above, though I have yet to try it.


It is suitable for Epson printers. Even though in the US it is marketed as Sawgrass media it is not sold as such in other territories.

Yes you can. I have some vinyl that can be sublimated and pressed onto any fabric.
I tried it one time.
There was nothing in the resulting decorated T that I was willing to sell (with my name on it) to a customer.
Buy the right ink, get some refillable carts, and suddenly you have a lot more printing agility.

Is there a problem with using the right tool for the job? We have really good results with printed vinyl, cut vinyl and plastisol transfers. We even have a clear heat transfer material that works with our VersaCamm that gives photo prints on light garments with almost no hand.
