Sublimation Tip: Anchor the transfer

Find out how to master this essential step in the sublimation process.

Always anchor the transfer. Heat tape and Pro Spray make it easy to align and secure the printed transfer to hard and soft substrates for consistent, ghost-free results. Ghosting is a result of the printed transfer shifting/moving during the heating process. When applying Pro Spray, it’s wise to spray over a large trash can or dedicated cardboard box to prevent a sticky work area.
