Sublimation Transfer Printing: Importance of A Testing

Are you already running your business of sublimation transfer printing or just start out it? There is a suggestion to keep in mind to make sure your business is running smoothly and avoid potential problems. Remember to make test before sublimation printing.

Actually, no matter how long we have been in the dye sublimation printing business, variables change all the time and sometimes overnight. A heat press machine that it has worked for 2 years without an issue may suddenly not heat up to the temperature it shows or apply even pressure. An item may be slightly changed in manufacturing requiring a heat/time adjustment which usually happens without warning, or it could be a brand new item you have never used before.

Luckily, we don’t need a ton of extra items to do testing of digital sublimation printing. All blanks can be pressed multiple times for testing purposes. Anything that is previously sublimated will fade out, but the coating can take on multiple presses and would not be affected.  The easiest way to test is with small black strips (maybe throw in a few primary colors). When over pressed and grey under pressed, black will look brown, so that is a pretty good way to figure out what combination of temperature, time and pressure produce the deepest black with sharpest edges. It is generally bad practice to test a full image on a final item and just hope it works right off the bat. That often leads to a wasted item with no extra white space that can be re-used for testing.
