These special inks print onto silicone coated transfer paper. Then comes the transfer onto polyester fabric. The current category includes textile inks for all typically used Epson print heads in piezo printers – Epson, Mutoh, Roland, Mimaki, and others.
The inks saturation and chemical characteristics vary. This is based on the specific printing needs and the polyester content of the related fabric material.
For best results, the dye sub inks require special environmental humidity.
Important to know, the quality of the transfer paper affects significantly the dye sublimation printing result. You can finally see this on the printed fabric.
Therefore, a good combination of ink and paper, as well as good printing conditions, give the best performance and quality.
