Re: Is there a "no-stretch" substitue for JPSS?

If your intent is to NEVER print on black cotton then sublimation and transfers are the way to go.
Be aware if you intend to print white/light cotton, blends and poly, you will need printer(s) equipped with sublimation and pigment/die inks.

Stretching after pressing, just like trimming after mowing, simply creates a better end product. Transfer and sublimation have their own little 'better product' disciplines that could very well become tomorrows issue for you.
Best of success.

From what I understand, there are sublimation transfer papers for 100% cotton now.

Thanks, Ed. She's been wanting to do some mugs, too, so maybe I'll get her set up for that.

The stretching is a good idea but not absolutely necessary. You will be limited to 100% polyester with sublimation but it will allow you to also print the 100's of other products that are available for sublimation.

My ex-wife just can't do the post-press stretching. Maybe use 50/50 blend tees?

Or maybe just switch to sublimation?
