NEWBIE QUESTION: Printed colors look dull?

779 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Ripcord
I dont know much about dye sub at the moment but I printed this but it just looks so dull.

I dont want to waste any apparel etc so my question is does this brighten once its pressed or do I have a ton of more work ahead of me?

Dye sublimation transfers will look dull and the colors off as you have discovered. The magic happens when you press them item. The resulting image on your substrate should be bright, bold and accurate.

Yep. The first time I ordered dye sub transfers I was so disappointed that I called the company I ordered them from. They told me to press one and see how I liked it. It was like a miracle. I don't know where all that color comes from, it just appears out of nowhere.
