Dye Sublimation Printing is different from other types of printing in that it uses dyes rather than ink, like inkjet or laser jet printers do. Inkjet printers use the CMYK color spectrum (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black), which is the print industry standard for most printing worldwide (RGB color spectrum is used for most video, in contrast).The printing process uses the CMYO spectrum, where the "O" represents a clear overprint which becomes the black when exposed to heat and pressure.

When printing using the sublimation process,What kind of paper do you use for dye sublimation printing?The type of paper used for is typically called "dye sublimation transfer paper," or just "dye sublimation paper." Sublimation printing process is  also known as heat transfer dye sublimation, first, the image is printed to a transfer paper using the CMYO ink set, then, once the paper is removed from the printer, it is matched up to a polyester fabric and place on a pressure rolling machine with heated rollers (around 400 ºF / 204 ºC) and slowly rolled between the rollers until it comes out the back side with a perfect (hopefully) image sublimated to the fabric.Then,what is large format dye sublimation printing?if you want a large format sublimation print, you simply need to find a dye sub printer that has a 3.2 meter printer (just over 10 ft.), and they will be happy to print whatever you need printed and as large as you want it.
