    Im looking to get into sublimation for making shirts, I've been using HTV for a couple years now to print my designs on shirts and looking to switch it up, weeding out every design is becoming a pain in the ***. I've read about Poly Spray (like this) and interested if anyone has had experience...

    Brand new to sublimation and haven’t had this problem until I started using Paropy Sublicotton and inkjet transfer papers. The color is lifting when I pull the backing off. I’ve been testing on both 100% cotton and 100% rayon (they state it works for both) and both tshirts are having issues...

    Can you sublimate a print onto sublimation paper? I am doing quite a few mock-ups for hard substrates and thought about this as a method to save some money. Wanted to check before I went out and bought some to try. Thanks.
  7. Dye Sublimation
    Hi, I am having an issue sublimating a bit of art work onto a t-shirt the most of the colours are perfect but a few are off and I am not sure how to proceed.

    Hello all, I am new to sublimation and have just been tying a few things and I have come across an issue and need some guidance.

    Hey everyone, I have a Sawgrass sg400 with a drive belt issue. It is about 5 years old, so with this going one, time to replace or pull an unused Epson 1400 off the shelf buy sub ink, and fire it up. But, I don't have an ICC profile for it, plus the pigment bulk ink could produce more clogs...

    Hello all! I'm very new to all this and honestly am starting because I wanted to make some custom stuff for my cosplays and figured I could probably do something similar for others if I got a decent setup.

    I am looking into getting a large format sublimation printer, I’m not sure if I should buy an all in one solution i.e. something like the Epson SC F6370 which has its own inks and rip software so I will not have to worry about colour profiles too much. Or get a good printer and convert it into a...
  15. Dye Sublimation

My understanding is that hdK is better for clothing but bad at hard substrates like ChromaLuxe. Whereas the nK variation is great at ChromaLuxe and good at...
  16. Dye Sublimation
    Apparently these have been around for a while. But I just became aware of it this morning. What is it? So, since it seems like that most often repeated flaw of dye sub is that you must print almost as frequently as DTG or risk clogging why would anybody use anything else? Of course I haven't...
