Sublimation HTV on dark shirts
Sublimation vinyl for dark fabrics offers a perfect solution for the limitations of sublimation paper when it comes to transferring designs onto dark-colored pure cotton shirts. With its advanced technology, Sublimation HTV for Dark Fabric is specifically designed for dark cotton fabrics, allowing you to create personalized and unique designs on various items like T-shirts, backpacks, hats, pillows, and more.
This dye sublimation vinyl enhances the sublimation effect on dark fabrics, ensuring vibrant colors are restored regardless of the cotton fabric’s color. The vinyl is equipped with a protective film that covers the heat-pressed film, providing strong adhesion and making it easy to weed and cut. Once heat pressed, the protective film can be effortlessly separated without any wrinkles or bubbles.
Sublimation heat transfer vinyl allows you to easily apply intricate and multi-colored graphics onto T-shirts and other wearable apparel. You can even achieve patterns with a hollow effect, and the transferred colors remain vivid and bright with excellent durability and washability. Whether exposed to sunlight or rain, the material resists fading or color change, ensuring long-lasting quality.
How to Use Sublimation on a Black Fabric?
Computer, printer, Sublimation ink, Cutting plotter, Tool set, Heat press machine,black fabric.
Obtain a pattern, import the pattern into the operating software of the cutting plotter, and print the designed pattern with sublimation ink through the software of the cutting plotter.
Print Mode: Mirror Print, High Quality Glossy Paper, Standard Print Quality.
Note: Record the size settings of the printed pattern.
Re-upload the pattern to the software of the cutting plotter (Note: The size of the pattern needs to be the same as the printed pattern), then click the offset and set the distance of the outline to 0.1mm and cut out the pattern (if the pattern is complex and small, the offset can be appropriately increased; if it is simple and the offset can be appropriately reduced).
Take out the sublimation vinyl, cut out the outline edge of the pattern by the cutting plotter, and then weed the extra parts. (Note: Cutting Mode:Mirror).
Transfer the pattern.
Set heat press parameters: Temperature: 185℃, Pressure: medium.
Put the sublimation HTV vinyl face up on the fabric, iron at 185℃ for 5 seconds, and remove the base film of the sublimation vinyl (Cold Peel).
Put the printed sublimation paper on the sublimation vinyl,Align and fix the pattern.Iron with a heat press machine at 185°C for 45 seconds, peel off the sublimation paper(cold peel).
Note: If the pattern is not easy to align during transfer, you can also put a positioning film on the back of the sublimation paper, and then use a cutting plotter to cut the pattern on the sublimation paper and then weed the extra parts,in order to align the pattern during transfer.
