How can I ensure color accuracy for sublimation?

Do not pick colors using your computer monitor. Because all monitors display color differently, referencing a monitor is not an accurate way to choose colors. The color on the screen will not match the finished sublimated color. Print and sublimate a color chart to use as a reference. Assigning colors within the design software based on the printed color chart will eliminate guessing and assure accuracy.
