Heat Transfer Printing vs Sublimation Printing(2)

Heat Transfer Paper vs. Sublimation

    By now, we hope you have the gist of heat transfer paper and sublimation, so let’s get down to the nitty gritty and compare these two garment decoration methods in a few important areas.
 
    Startup Costs and Equipment Requirements
 
    Garment decoration via heat transfer paper is one of the least expensive methods for starting out. To get started, you will need an inkjet or laser printer (which you may already have), a heat press, heat transfer paper, and the shirts or garments you’d like to decorate.

   Sublimation carries a higher   start-up cost than heat     transfer   paper, but that cost   has greatly come down in   recent years. Sublimation   starter packages such as   contain everything you need   to  start sublimating – minus   the heat press – at a very   affordable price. This includes   the sublimation     printer,  sublimation paper,   essential software and a   sample pack of products you     can sublimate. Outside of this,   all you need is a heat press
 
 
     Durability and Feel
 
 
 
    Sublimation uses a process where the ink becomes part of the fabric rather than adding a layer on top.
 
    This results in a transfer that is unmatched in both durability and feel. On the other hand, heat transfer paper adds a layer on top of the garment. This additional layer can be physically felt and is less durable than sublimation and can become faded and cracked over time with numerous wash cycles.

     It is important to note that heat transfer papers are not created equally, and you will find some that offer a softer feel and greater durability than other transfer papers. For folks just starting out with an inkjet printer
