Sublimation Transfers Printed and Shipped to you
These are NOT HTV nor Screen Print Transfers.
Sublimation Transfer Designs must be applied with a heat press, they can not be applied with a home iron, because a household iron will not reach the necessary temperature for the heat activated transfer process to work properly. These transfers need to be placed on items made of a minimum of 65% polyester. The higher the polyester content, the more vibrant your colors. Tri-blend gives a lighter, vintage look. 100% polyester material will give the most vibrant colors when pressed with the proper heat press!
Items should be light in color... white, white marble or athletic heather gray are best.
The transfers will not show up well on dark material and if it is applied onto black material, the image will not show up at all. The printer used for sublimation printing does not print white, so if you use a colored item (light blue, baby pink, etc.) where there is white in the design, it will not print those areas, and when pressed, those areas will show the color of the your item through. Also, using colored garments, other than white will change how the colors of the transfer appear when pressed. If you press pink onto blue, it may appear purple. If you press red onto yellow, it may appear dark orange.
There is no change to the feel of the garment after sublimation is applied. It's smooth and feels like your item did before adding the transfer and will not peel or crack. The ink, when heated to the proper temperature, turns into a gas and dyes the fibers of the material permanently.
-Heat Press (not household iron)
-White or Light Colored Material (white, white marble, and light athletic heather grey are the best)
-Garment MUST be at least 65% polyester, the higher % polyester, the more vibrant the colors will press (lower polyester material gives a faded, vintage look).
Instructions for pressing:
– 390-400 degrees F (Recommended 400)
– 50-60 seconds (Recommended 60)
– light to medium pressure
Sometimes TEMP and TIME are item specific, check the instructions from the supplier of the item you purchased to sublimate on.
Also, you might want to invest in a heat gun, you can get them on eBay or Amazon and they are not very expensive. You would use this to make sure that the actual temperature of your heat press matches what the digital display screen shows so you know if you need to adjust your numbers.
All measurements are approximate and will be sized according to the design.
Some of the pictures are mockup representations of the designs on products to give you an idea of how the transfers will look. This listing is for the sublimation transfer only and does not come with any of the products shown.
