Can I use normal printer for sublimation?
No, normal printers cannot be used for sublimation. Sublimation requires sublimation paper, sublimation ink
, and a specially designed printer. The ink in sublimation printers has a higher heat capacity than in normal printers.
Can I sublimate on regular paper?
No, sublimation is not used on regular paper because it lacks the required coating, which is necessary for sublimation, and thus there will be no transfer of ink on the paper.
What are the advantages of sublimation over thermal transfer printing?
Sublimation prevents the cracking or fading of prints because it becomes part of the surface. It can produce fine lines, subtle colors, gradients, and continuous tones. It can be used with different compatible materials like ceramic, polyester fabric, metals, etc.
