Tips

Choose the Right Sublimation Paper

Decide from a handful of options to achieve the intended look.

Choose the right media for the right application to ensure superb transfer quality. Standard paper provides image clarity and color on hard substrates such as ceramic tiles, award plaques, name badges, and coffee mugs.

High-release paper is designed to release more sublimation ink in the transfer process, resulting in vibrant transfers on soft (thirsty) substrates including T-shirts, mousepads, towels, and tote bags.

Also consider pre-cut mug paper. This simple change can help digital decorators at all levels of production eliminate paper waste and drastically reduce the time and effort involved in producing mugs in an oven or traditional mug press.
