hi, ive never understood the logic with sub inks and JPSS, the inks are under a film, or am i missing something
but i'll leave them the 24 hours as per JPSS instructions for washing .. so fingers crossed etc etc
There are a couple of thoughts on using JPSS as a "prep" paper.
Yes you still have "film", but JPSS the hand is gone after a wash and the "box" effect is virtually eliminated if applied correctly and using a white tshirt after washing. Like sublimation, no hand and no "box".
So why use sub ink on JPSS when pigment inks on JPSS effectively gives the same result?
1. For someone that is mostly doing sublimation then if you use JPSS and sub inks you only need 1 printer. While you can swap between sub ink carts and pigment inks carts in a single printer it is more expensive due to ink waste when the carts are changed and less convenient.
So someone already using sublimation need not get a 2nd pigment based printer.
2. Pigment inks won't "pop" as well as sub inks do. If you want more vibrancy you can improve using sub inks.
