Can you imagine how sublimation printing works with the help of dye sublimation ink and sublimation transfer paper?Is it the same as heat transfer printing?Wow! We may have good and related questions to the dye sub and heat transfer printing of fabric, one of my favorite ways to print fabric and other items, the following we will deal with related some question about polyester fabric.
First of all,we will introduce two types of sublimation printer to all of u. One uses ribbon so transfer color to a transfer paper, and the other is the same basic printing method as digital printing except there are differences between ink and dye. And the same printers can be used, although not interchangeably due to the differences between dyes and ink.Inkjet printing uses, typically, what is known as the "four color process" printing method. The four colors are also known in shorthand as CMYK ink colors. CMYK stands for Cyan-Magenta, Yellow, and Black, which in any combination will print almost any color, not including neon colors or metallic colors, but most colors in the photo spectrum.Because of the limitations of CMYK inks, additional colors have been added to some printers which are now known as 6 color digital printers, having added a light cyan and a light magenta to reach some of the harder colors to create in the printing process. Some printers have even added orange and green cartridges as well.
Dye sublimation printing is slightly different from heat transfer printing. The dyes used are similar to ink, but with some differences. The ink set for dye sub printing is also a four color process (also known in shorthand as 4CP), but the shorthand version here is CMYO, or cyan-magenta-yellow-overprint clear. Where is the black, you may wonder? It would be hard to create a full color spectrum without black!
