Hi all,

I've been a frequent visitor (and now a member!) of this forum. I am enjoying and learning at the same time while reading every topic here. Right now, I am more interested in printing on white shirt (im just a starting hobbyist). I dont have a heatpress and just using iron (no $$$ yet). I have tried using an avery transfer paper and iron the design to my white shirt. Result is okay. My question now is this...Can I do Dye Sublimation (provided I have a polyester tees) using only iron as heatpress? Anybody ever tried this? :)

thanks
Einstein

I doubt it. Pressure is very important for dye sub. Heat and pressure are what fuse the dye into the polymers without it you will have a faint print.

mind you need to get the right iron setting and apply the right pressure
