Reality is that one cannot sublimate onto cotton. One would be sublimating onto a plastic transfer paper and then attaching that plastic to the cotton shirt. Whereas sublimation on a polyester garment directly dyes the fibers of the garment without adding a plastic layer.

In the end, "sublimating onto cotton" has all the same characteristics as a regular inkjet transfer onto cotton. The only advantage I see is if one is already setup with a sublimation printer and inks and does not want to purchase a separate printer and inks for cotton garments.
