What should I do to properly prepare my materials for sublimation?

Tips before printing and pressing:

  1. Print on regular paper to check for sizing.
  2. Be sure your image is mirrored.
  3. Peel plastic (usually on hardboard and metal).
  4. Tape or lightly spray your image to prevent ghosting.
  5. Check that your printed image is placed directionally correct on your substrate.
  6. Always use a new piece of butcher paper per substrate.
