Sublimation printing, also referred to as dye sublimation printing, is a printing method for transferring images onto a substrate (usually a cloth material such as polyester). Sublimation refers to a process where a substance moves from a solid to a gas state without ever being in a liquid state. Sublimation printing normally involves the use of a digital printer to produce mirrored images on sublimation transfer paper that has been specially coated with a transfer material.
I will introduce some steps to your guys how to DIY sublimation clothing for yourselves.
1.Firstly, we should have sublimation transfer paper.
2.we also need inkjet printer,such as Mimaki / Roland / Mutoh / Eposn / Ricoh / Starfire / Konica / China-Made printer with Epson DX5 / DX6 / DX7 / 5113
3.Print your image in reverse, and be careful not to touch the sublimation ink. It will stay wet until the next step.
4.Carefully lay it down on the fabric where you want the graphic and iron it down. Make sure your iron is set on NO steam. I ironed about 60 seconds to make sure everything was in place.
5.After you’re ironed down, put the runner on a hard surface (like a table) and use something to burnish down the paper even more. I did it with and without this step – it really does make a big difference! Just rub, rub, rub and make sure that you’ve went over all of the graphic.
6.Then peel off the paper – and you’re done! The ironing makes the paper grab to the fabric, so it’ll be a bit like peeling off tape.
7.At last,the perfect work done!
Enjoy your DIY time.
