Printing fabric with sublimation paper
Types of Sublimation Transfer Paper
Please carefully choose the type of transfer paper you need; either textile or rigid/super dry substrate paper. Textile paper is for printing fabric or t-shirts for example. Rigid or Super Dry paper is for hard objects that accept sublimation printing. Please ensure your dimensions are correct and you've selected the right type of transfer paper for your project before proceeding to payment. Typically, transfer paper will be printed within 1 hour of placing your order.

Transfer paper works best on white fabric, if you use an alternative fabric your colours will be impacted. The print will still transfer, however you will find that the colours are not a perfect reproduction. The white area on the transfer paper is plain, there is no ink or dye to transfer onto the material. This means that any area which you leave white on your design will appear the colour of the material that you are using.
We offer sublimation paper in A1 to A5 standard sizes or in your own custom size. The different paper options come with different maximum sizes.
Textile transfer paper: max 159cm wide

Disclaimer: As stated above, our transfer paper is designed for use in a heat press only. If you want to use an iron or an alternative means of the press, we advise you to do so at your own risk. Perfectly transferring an image using transfer paper is a delicate process, and you must take into consideration the type of fabric, temperature, pressure and positioning. If you're using the paper at home, please be aware of and accept these risks that accompany it.
Your Transfer Paper Colour
You'll notice your design will be pale when you first receive the transfer paper. However, this is not how your finished pressed fabric will look. Once the ink has been heat transferred to your medium, the inks will come to life and reflect the colours in your design. This is normal and nothing to worry about as your design will look fabulous once heat transferred.
