The owner's manual is the first thing to bear in mind. Because each printer is unique, the tools and maintenance procedures may differ depending on the printer or its model. Therefore, check that you have read the owner's manual in order to solve any issues with sublimation printing.
 
The following are the crucial actions you need to take to acquire 
high-quality sublimation printing on your garments:

1. Regularly clean nozzle heads:

Clogging of print heads is a problem that affects all makes and models of sublimation printers. The maintenance of clean print heads is therefore crucial.
Let the ink run through the nozzle heads to simply clean the print heads if you frequently print. However, the sublimation ink dries in the nozzle heads after a few days and causes the head to choke.
Blockage issues with print heads:
Streaks on the printed picture are the most typical issue brought on by clogged heads. Additionally, low ink levels in the cartridges may be the cause of the same problem. Therefore, do routine inspections to avoid head blockage.
After performing the head cleaning, look for the printed pattern to make sure the problem has been fixed. In order to clear the blocked ink from the nozzle heads if necessary, repeat the head cleaning process.
 



2. Prevent Ink Wastage in a Sublimation Printer:
Ink is wasted excessively during sublimation printer maintenance. The cleaning machine requires a specific quantity of ink to be used each day. Using the ink flow to clean the nozzle heads is something we covered above. Trash collection tanks are used to stop ink wastage. To store all of the discharge ink, some printers include built-in tanks. As a result, you can keep a separate storage container or ones that are built in. To control ink waste, you must take the appropriate actions.
 

3. The effect of temperature on sublimation ink:

For safe and dry-free storage, sublimation inks require precise temperature and humidity requirements. The suggested range of storage temperatures for sublimation ink is between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius, with a relative humidity level of at least 35%. 
However, excessive humidity results in moisture buildup on substrates and transfer paper.
The image quality after sublimation is impacted when the substrate or transfer paper make touches the heat press, which causes moisture to transform into steam.
As a result, you must use an air exhaust system or another indoor moisture controller to keep the temperature and humidity in your workshop at an appropriate level.
 

4. Maintain your Workshop Clean:

Try to keep your workshop tidy and clear of dust, taking all necessary care to protect your sublimation paper, especially when printing. The print quality will suffer if any dust or moisture (as previously mentioned) falls on the transfer paper, resulting in a low-quality, dull, and in some cases, fuzzy image. The transfer paper can no longer be used for printing once it has fallen to the ground and collected dust.
However, problems occur when the transfer paper is soiled from accidentally dropping it on the floor. You must set up a cover or container that keeps the transfer paper in place and keeps it from making contact with the floor in order to be ready for such an event.



5. Be careful!

Refilling refillable ink cartridges requires extreme caution, so if you're using one, be sure to do so.
Dust: Everything is ruined when dust enters the ink cartridge. In addition to producing subpar prints, it could harm and choke your sublimation printing equipment's ink delivery mechanism.
 
Air bubbles: When manually filling ink cartridges, air bubbles can be a significant issue even if you are successful in keeping dust from getting inside.
The simplest technique to avoid air bubbles is to fill little amounts of ink and shake it up to settle and get rid of any air bubbles or spaces.
 
In conclusion, you must regularly maintain sublimation printing equipment by paying attention to the typical problems and remedies covered above. Additionally, if your current sublimation printing equipment has an automatic cleaning feature, it will be simpler to maintain. If you are not printing frequently, you must address the widespread problem of clogged print heads. Your sublimation printer will function well and maintain decent print quality with routine maintenance.
