#SortIT, Sublimation and Heat Transfer Paper Temperature and Press Time Guideline for All Fabrics
Let’s get into the basics of Heat Transfer Paper
So, what is heat transfer paper exactly? Heat transfer paper is a speciality paper that transfers printed designs onto shirts and other garments when heat is applied. The process involves printing a design onto a sheet of heat transfer paper using an inkjet or laser printer. Then, you place the printed sheet on your T-shirt and press it utilizing a heat press. Once pressing is finished, peel paper off slowly. You will see that your image will stick nicely onto the fabric.
How about Sublimation ink?
When heated, Sublimation ink converts from a solid to a gas embedding itself into the polyester fabric. It goes back to a solid after it has cooled down and permanently sticks onto the fabric.
Sublimation works on a variety of materials and surfaces such as polyester fabrics, poly-coating surface. You can also use sublimation to customize coasters, jewelry, mugs, puzzles and so much more.
