dye sublimation paper

Sublimation is a process that uses an image that has been digitally created and then printed onto transfer paper using special inks called sublimation inks. The printed paper is then placed on a synthetic material (polyester) and heated at approximately 400 degrees for approximately 35 seconds. Under heat and pressure, the polyester molecules open and the sublimation dye turns to gas which will then penetrate the surface of the polyester. After the heat is removed, the polyester molecules will close and permanently trap the sublimation dyes or image into the polyester substrate.

The second type of sublimation transfer paper is High Release paper.  This paper is engineered to achieve very high percentage of dye release from the paper into your substrate.  This paper is ok for hard substrates, but works really well for fabrics,and allows you to achieve a very vibrant image quality on fabric substrates such as apparel and fabric covered blank sublimation products such as mouse pads.  This paper does not work with the Ricoh printers because it does not dry fast enough to keep up with the speed of the Ricoh printers.The last type of paper is tacky or thermal paper.  This paper is specifically engineered for fabrics.  Fabric materials have a high tendency to ghost.  Ghosting occurs when you sublimate a product, and the sublimation paper shifts as the heat press opens.  This causes a second image slightly off center from the first image because the sublimation dyes still off gas because everything is still hot.  When tacky paper is closed in the heat press on your fabric substrate, ittacks to the fabric so that when the press it opened, it cannot shift.  That allows you to peel off the transfer under controlled circumstances for a perfect image without any ghosting and without ruining any shirts orother fabric items.The tacky paper works really great for fabrics but it can only be used in a roll form.  Since it is slightly tacky to the touch even when cold, it will not feed in a sheet form in the desktop sublimation systems.
