Which Type Of Transfer Paper Is Right For Your Business?

Transfer paper, also known as sublimation paper, is widely used in the textile sector and which type of paper you choose is very much dependent upon your business and desired effect.
 
Here’re the types of Transfer Papers:
 
1. Inkjet Transfer Paper
 
This is the most popular transfer paper for home or small business use; providing a cost-effective option for one-off jobs.  It is perfect for transferring an image, text, graphic, design, logos, etc., using inkjet or laser printers.  The inkjet transfer paper works best on cotton and cotton blend fabrics; however, it can also be used on synthetics.
 
2. Sublimation Transfer Paper
 
Sublimation paper is designed to be used on polyester, polyester blends and other synthetic fabrics.  In the sublimation paper process, the ink ‘sublimates’, or become a gas without liquefying first. The process lays down varying amounts of primary colors, plus a clear coating onto the paper.
 
3. Plastisol Screen printed Transfer Paper
 
Also known as hot-split or hot-peel, this method of transferring produces a finished product that is almost identical to screen printing. During the printing process, the image is transferred on to the plastisol paper using a screen printer.  A heat press then transfers the image onto the fabric.
 
While this method is cheaper than sublimation printing, it does require investment in potentially costly equipment such as screen printers and heat presses.
 
With sublimation paper, there are two key considerations to be pay attention to, when choosing the most suitable paper for your business:  how the paper absorbs the ink and how it releases the ink on to the substrate.
 
Sublimation papers look very similar, and work on the principle of a polymer layer and release agent, but the process can vary substantially from one type to another. It is therefore very important to select the transfer paper that will work best for you.
