Heat Transferring Realistic Images Has Never Been Easier!
If you’re like me, you absolutely love using your heat press machine to make T-shirts and mugs and hats displaying your favorite photos on them. In fact, that’s one of my favorite reasons for even having a heat press machine. It makes providing Christmas gifts to everyone so much easier.
One problem that we’ve run into in the past is that the older heat press machines didn’t into that great of a job when their heat pressing images onto the garment. Yes, the image would end up transferring over. However, it wasn’t all that sharp and clear.
Maybe back in the day when everyone was using Polaroid in Kodak cameras and images always came out grainy it would have been okay. But today we are fully HD cameras in our pockets so there is no excuse as to why we can’t heat transfer crystal-clear images onto our T-shirts.
Luckily there is a new way in which we can put realistic images on our T-shirts.
Sublimation printing using a heat transfer machine has become one of the best ways in which you can put images onto your garments. Sublimation printing is great because it focuses on making the dive not bleed after the heat transfer is complete.
When you’re doing a heat transfer involving something simple like vinyl or heat transfer paper, you don’t have to necessarily worry about any kind of die bleeding all over the T-shirt. That’s because there isn’t any dye used when using a heat transfer paper or vinyl.
But using die is at the heart of heat pressing images onto your T-shirts.
Sublimation printing takes away any risk that your diet is going to bleed. This allows you to do a nice fast speedy image transfer onto your T-shirt.
What used to take many, many hours to do is now a process that can be done in about five minutes per T-shirt. And that is if you’re using one of the cheaper sublimation heat press printing machines.
The newer industrial sublimation heat press printing machines have an output of about one T-shirt per minute.
What’s awesome though is that everyone is going to be able to maintain a high level of precision when using this technique. This is regardless of what kind of heat press machine you’re using, assuming you’re just using a simple sublimation printing machine. It doesn’t matter if you have an industrial one or consumer one, any dedicated sublimation heat transfer printing machine is going to be able to do the job.
