What should you pay attention to when using transfer paper in sublimation printing?
As an indispensable part of sublimation, what issues should be paid attention to when using transfer paper? This article will tell you about it.
First of all, we need to understand what is transfer paper?
Transfer paper refers to the transfer of a pattern printed on paper, and the pattern of the paper can be transferred to other surfaces. Sublimation refers to the printing of patterns on transfer paper with an inkjet printer, and then transfer printing onto clothes.
Precautions for using transfer paper:
1. When the transfer paper is printed, the pattern is printed facing the garment, so the pattern must be set to mirror printing in the computer before printing.
2. The transfer paper is a coating technology transfer, so the blank space should be cut off after the pattern is printed, so as not to transfer to the clothing and affect the appearance of the overall pattern.
3. When printing patterns, the printing temperature of the thermal transfer paper is set to about 190 degrees, and the transfer ink time is set to 25-30 seconds. The printing time is different for different inks, and the specific temperature and time depend on the situation.
Thermal transfer technology is now very common in digital printing, so users must understand the relevant technology in advance before buying a digital printing machine, and prepare the supporting thermal transfer equipment, then our Textek sublimation printer is a good choice.
