Road to Sublimation Success: More About Sublimation Printing(3)

dye sublimation printing

Obviously, since we are printing on different material than paper, however, Dye Sublimation Printing works just a little differently as the dye is put onto the fabric. The design is translated backwards onto a special type of paper before the paper is attached to the fabric in order to transfer the image. The fabric and paper then have to go through a heat and pressure process that fuses the ink to the fabric. This is much different from screen printing, as with screen printing, colors go on one at a time to create the desired effect instead of all the ink being pressed to the fabric at the same time with Dye Sublimation.

Do I Need A Bigger Printer?
I think there are three reasons to consider the MS-JP7, whether it’s your first sublimation printer or you want to compliment your existing desktop printer(s): (1) wider and longer paper allows you to tap into exciting substrate opportunities; (2) fast printing increases production to the point of considering multiple heat presses; and (3) lower operating costs compared to desktop printers.
The Dk32: A Perfect Complement
A larger printer is fantastic, but how can you produce larger substrates without a larger heat press? I asked Aaron Knight at the Geo Knight Company to design a next generation heat press for this new printer. The result? The DK32: a 26-by-34-inch heat press that I think is a perfect complement to the new printer. Although a manual press, it can produce 8,000 pounds of pressure (essential for ChromaLuxe metal, natural wood and MDF).
Unlike other presses, it accommodates substrates up to 2 inches thick. The 41-inch diagonal press dimension is helpful for substrates like neckties, lanyards and ribbons.It’s All About The Substrate
