T-shirts have always been a staple in my business. Let’s face it, with technology and startup costs a fraction of what they were eight years ago, we are all looking to reduce production costs. Anyone have thoughts on Cotton vers. Polyester? Vapor textiles are about three times the cost but Chromablast materials are more as well. How about marketing? My customers seem to prefer Cotton over Polyester. Thanks

I don't think you have much choice....Chromablast is for cotton...Sublijet for Polyester..both inks are pricey but Chromablast paper is much more expensive.... neither work on darks. I use either color laser for some prints and also farm out some for DTG. I do sublimation with sublijet. I gave up on Chromablast

Hey dudes, so about sublimation chromablast can be done with the printer without problems?. What i need is to print in cotton. So what do you recommend. Is the only way to do sublimation in cotton right?.
Correct. Chromablast will print and transer to 100% cotton. Prints from a inkjet onto Chromablast paper. There are some down sides. Cost and the discoloration left behind from the paper until washed. Don't cross contaminate the inks.

You can’t compare the two. They both have their place and totally different results. If cost is no issue and you want photo look, then print and press.

Surf around Sawgrass Educational. Start with this one.
