An increasing number of people use sublimation paper. Because it is different with heat transfer paper, Sublimation is a process in which special inks are injected directly into a substrate and is a permanent and fully crack and peel-resistant image transfer method. However, it is more involved and more expensive.
And we all know that sublimation paper is used for light color polyester fabric, but today, we will talk about best sublimation paper for dark shirts, so I will recommend a special product for you, that is OBM Sublitextile. Also, I will introduce it for you from serveral aspects.

Our size is A3/A4 and 0.5x25m/50m, it can be apply for cotton, polyester and polycotton fabric. And it needs inkjet printer with sublimation ink. But before you use it, you also need use scissors.
How to use OBM sublitextile?
First, we need prepare inkjet printer with sublimation ink, sublimation paper, obm sublitextile, cutting plotter, but if you do not have cutting plotter, you can use scissors.and we have two ways to transfer it, let me introduce it one by one, Process as follows:
(1) Make an image that you like, then print image on Sublimation Paper in mirror mode.
(2) Cut out the outline of OBM sublitextile (can be with scissors or cutting plotter)
(3) Then set the temperature and time, we always use 180 degree and 40 seconds to transfer it.
(4) Tear off the backing paper from the OBM sublitextile and place it on the fabric to be transferred.
(5) Place the printed subliamtion paper on the OBM with the image facing down.
(6) Press down the heat transfer machine to complete the transfer. When time is up, transfer is down, you will get a very beautiful fabric.
This is the second way.At first, we need to print the sublimation paper in advance, please use mirror printing, then choose a piece of obm sublitextile, all types are ok, then transfer the image to the OBM sublitextile,please use 200 degree and 20 secons,but please do not peel off the backing paper of OBM sublitextile fabric, it is to prevent the glue from sticking to the board, it is best to pad it with oil paper on two sides. Then cut the obm with scissors, remember trim along the contour edges of the image with scissors. Next step is to transfer the OBM to the fabric, please use 200 degree and 10 seconds, do not forget to tear off the backing paper of obm, then the transfer is done.
Why do we use OBM sublitextile?
OBM sublitextile solves the problem that sublimation paper can not be used for dark cotton. If for cotton fabric, we have inkjet heat transfer paper for dark and light color fabrics, but for polyester, we only have sublimation paper and it can only be used for light color polyester, so we create OBM sublitextile, it can meet your different requirement.
So if you want to transfer dark polyester fabric, I really recommend obm sublitextile for you, it can make your design more becautiful and vivide.
