Default Re: Sublimation printing on dark garments?

Saw the Sublimation on Cotton at the AC ISS Show.

All smoking mirrors. Basically, they're using a transparent background transfer. So if you don't mind printing on a transfer you're good to go.

The demo guy played it off like it was no big deal. Awe, that's just a backing support! he said. He had a big crowd around him.

I really don't see why you wouldn't just print on a transfer, and cut the image out with a Silhouette Cameo or vinyl cutter.

Better yet, a DTG machine with white ink. I really liked the Free Jet, FreeStyle, and Neo Jet. The freeStyle doesn't do white, but it doubles as a screen exposure system. You print your design right on the coated screen with the FreeStyle DTG. Than you pull the drawer out from underneath and expose it. Than off to the wash out. You can screen print on light colors, sorry no white right now. Probably look into buying one of those three.
