Make sure, absolutely sure, you are printing on the correct side of the sublimation paper. Some paperes are plain on both sides.

Also make sure any coulour management is switched OFF in your printer driver and ON in your Graphics software (ie. Photoshop) and that the correct profile has been selected.

The polyester shirt mus be 100% polyester and white to obtain the best sub print. Any cotton in the mix and the prints will dull after washing.

Are you creating your art in RGB or CMKY?
If not RGB try that instead...these are RGB printers you will have better results using RGB.

I have not used Corel in over 10 years so someone else ,might be able to offer more specific info.

I can't remember what I did exactly, however, I had this problem initially with Cobra.

It came down to using the wrong profile and/or profile installed but not using it correctly.

There are a bunch of ducks you need to line up in terms of paper, profile and settings. I was using PS though, so not sure about Corel.

The have to ask questions....

They label their Sub ink CS-XX, is it the right ink?

Also was this printer used before you added sub inks or have only sub inks ever been added to it?
