Hi. You cannot use sublimation to print onto cotton fabrics, as it relies on a chemical interaction with polyester fabrics. If you print on a poly/cotton mix, the sublimation ink will only adhere to the polyester component, it will wash clean out of the cotton component.

The two biggest limitations of sublimation garment printing, are that you are limited to using polyester fabrics and you can only print onto white, or light pastel colours. Sublimation garments undeniably cost more than cotton garments, but you do end up with a very high print quality.
