With 12 years development, Hanrun® Paper has grown to one of the leading international providers of digital printing solution company. As you work toward becoming an experienced dye-sublimation printer, you may come across one or more obstacles such as your transfer coming out blurry, dull or faded. Don't get discouraged! This is all part of the learning process, and most of our new sublimation customers go through a trial and error period. We've compiled some of the most frequent issues associated with dye-sublimation printing in case you ever experience one.

 

Why aren't my transfers coming out vibrant?

 

There are a few reasons why your transfers could be coming out less vibrant than expected. First, make sure that you are printing on the correct side of your sublimation paper, which is typically bright white. The other side is generally off-white. Next, ensure that you are printing through the correct color correction program.

 

Why is my image ghosting?

 

If you are seeing a second version of your transfer, like a shadow, slightly to the side of your image, you are experiencing what is known as ghosting. Ghosting occurs when the sublimation transfer paper shifts during the sublimation process, such as when you open or close your heat press. For this reason, it is recommended that you tape down your hard substrates to the sublimation paper using thermal tape. For fabrics, we recommend an adhesive spray to prevent the paper from moving. After pressing, make sure you remove the transfer paper immediately. For sublimation, we also suggest avoiding using an auto open press as these tend to pop open too fast, causing the paper to shift if not taped down well enough.

 

 

Few months ago, Hanrun R&D team has tested a new coating for 35gsm sublimation paper. Cause the special coating and thinner base paer, the transfer speed will twice as fast, and the trasnfer rate will be high, which means our 35gsm EVO Dye sublimation paper can help you to save your time, Save your time means save your money. And this paper also has the ability of no ghosting. 

 

Why is my substrate not accepting sublimation ink?

 

It is important to note that not all products accept sublimation ink. For dye-sublimation to work, your product blank needs to have a polyester coating (or be made of a polyester material). For fabrics, we recommend 100% white polyester for the best transfer. It is not possible to sublimate on 100% cotton - and your transfer will wash away in the first wash cycle. You can sublimate on poly/cotton blends, but the transfer will appear less vibrant and give a vintage look. In general, the higher level of polyester, the better.
