Once the surface is prepared, you can place the transfer paper onto it. Make sure the transfer paper is facing down, with the design facing up. If you need to, you can use tape to hold the transfer paper in place while you work. Stiff/Heavy/No-fray fabrics: we use 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm Sublimation Transfer Paper– Sublimation transfer paper is used in a process called sublimation printing. This process involves printing the image onto the transfer paper using special sublimation ink, then using heat and pressure to transfer the image onto a specially coated surface. Sublimation transfer paper is commonly used on fabrics, mugs, and other items. Fading of transfer paper designs is a common issue that occurs due to various reasons, including low-quality transfer paper, exposure to sunlight, or washing instructions not being followed correctly. Here are some ways to troubleshoot this issue:

When it comes to transfer paper, preparing your design is a crucial step in ensuring that the final product comes out looking great. There are a few different ways you can go about preparing your design, including choosing the right design, printing it out, tracing it onto the transfer paper, and cutting it to the appropriate size. Choosing Your Design We always suggest testing on a small piece first, to ensure that you get the right amount of heat and pressure, before printing your full design. 12. What are the Pros and Cons of Sublimation? When you have successfully transferred your design onto your desired surface using transfer paper, it’s important to know how to take care of it properly to ensure it lasts as long as possible. Here are some instructions on how to care for your transfer paper designs. We advise that you use this on fabrics that are 85% poly or more. This is because it is the poly fibres that open their pores to accept the dye. You can use a lower composition, however, your colours will be affected. You’ll end up with more of a ‘vintage faded’ look. You can also print on hard surfaces with a poly-coating, such as keyrings, jigsaws, mugs and so much more. 4. What is Sublimation Paper?

For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine. If you are using an iron, set it to the appropriate temperature for the transfer paper and the surface. Place the protective sheet or parchment paper over the transfer paper and then press the iron onto the paper, applying firm pressure for the recommended amount of time. Laser Transfer Paper– Laser transfer paper is designed to be used with laser printers. It is coated with a layer of toner that is heat-sensitive and melts when heat is applied. Laser transfer paper is typically used on fabrics, but can also be used on other surfaces. After the transfer paper is in place, you need to apply heat and pressure to transfer the design onto the surface. The amount of heat and pressure needed will depend on the type of transfer paper you are using and the surface you are transferring the design onto.

Sublimation is best suited to white or light-coloured fabric bases. You can use it on darker shades, however, it will affect your colours. White ink is not used in sublimation printing. White parts of the design remain unprinted which shows the base colour of the textile. Next, you’ll need an iron or a heat press to transfer your design onto the fabric. An iron is a good option if you’re working with a small design or on a limited budget. However, if you’re planning on creating multiple designs or larger designs, a heat press may be a better option. We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation. Our design interface will have a quality marker next to the design that you have uploaded, this will change colour using a traffic light system and display a message. The message will let you know if the resolution is too low or if you have a good quality image. Medium Fabrics (101-200gsm): For medium-weight fabrics that fray, we use 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm Sublimation transfer paper works best on white fabric, if you use an alternative fabric your colours will be impacted. The print will still transfer, however you will find that the colours are not a perfect reproduction. The white area on the sublimation transfer paper is plain, there is no ink or dye to transfer onto the material. This means that any area which you leave white on your design will appear the colour of the material that you are using. SizesTo summarize, preparing your design involves choosing the right design, printing it out or tracing it onto the transfer paper, and cutting it to the appropriate size. By following these steps, you can ensure that your transfer paper project comes out looking great. Overall, transfer paper is a versatile medium that can be used in a variety of applications, from creating custom t-shirts to decorating ceramics and glassware. By understanding the different types of transfer paper available, you can choose the best paper for your specific project and achieve the best possible results. Heat transfer paper is also sensitive to humidity. The inkjet or laser printing is more prone to dotting and colour bleeding if there is excessive moisture in the paper, and as this form of printing applies a film, rather than being textureless, you may find that the transfer is not flat, or curls or peels at the edges. 9. Which is the right print side of the sublimation paper? Transfer printing describes two different types of printing: Heat transfer printing and sublimation. They both have their pros and cons, but they both tend to be more suited for different needs. There is still some ambiguity on sublimation and how it works, so we are going to take a look at the most frequently asked questions and try and provide a little more clarity. 2. What is Heat Transfer Printing? You’ll find that your colours look pale on the sublimation paper. This is completely normal and isn’t what the finished press will look like. Once transferred to your medium your colours will come to life! Another benefit of sublimation over transfer printing is that there is a much bigger range of colours. 10. Can thermal transfer paper be reused?

It’s crucial to buy the right type of iron-on transfer paper for the type of printer you’ll be using. Most iron-on transfer paper sheets are made for use with inkjet printers. However, if you don’t have an inkjet printer and have a laser printer instead, look for laser-printer-compatible iron-on transfer paper. These are harder to come by than their inkjet counterparts, but they do exist! Before purchasing transfer paper, it’s important to consider the type of printer you’ll be using and the material you’ll be transferring your design onto. Some transfer papers are designed to work better on specific fabrics or surfaces, so it’s essential to choose the right type of transfer paper to ensure the best results. Scissors or Cutting Tool To use transfer paper on metal, simply print your design onto the transfer paper and then place it face down onto the metal. Use a sharp object such as a pen or pencil to trace over the design, applying firm pressure to transfer the design onto the metal. Once the design has been transferred, you can use paint or other materials to fill in the design. Be sure to let the paint or other materials dry completely before handling the item. Glass The first step in preparing your design is choosing the right one. This can be anything from a simple logo to a complex graphic or image. When choosing your design, consider the surface you will be transferring it onto. Some designs may work better on certain materials than others, so it’s important to keep this in mind. Printing Your DesignOnce the design has been transferred, you can use paint or other materials to fill in the design. Be sure to let the paint or other materials dry completely before handling the item. Metal The first and most crucial material is transfer paper. This paper is specially designed to transfer your design from the paper onto the fabric. There are several types of transfer paper available, including inkjet and laser . Inkjet transfer paper is designed to work with inkjet printers, while laser transfer paper is specifically designed for laser printers.
