The principle of sublimation Offset Heat Transfer ink balance is minimizing the amount of wetting liquid in advance of layout is not dirty. Many dynamic variables in the printing process changes are easily lead to ink balance broken. The offset printing machine operator needs to actively check, prevent scrumming. Layout priority detection should be the most easily strumming parts:
a. Small white text and lines turn to be dirty easily, especially when the plate no level. b. The darkened part of the level version is easy to paste off. c. The plate edges are more easily dirty due to their position.
What is said above is mainly aimed at some problems that should be paid attention to the assessment of vision. The qualified factory should check together with control strips and instrument checks to achieve the best effect. The control strip has the function of amplifying for this imperceptible printing fault visually, but placing the control strip must use larger paper, which increases the production cost. The density and chromaticity detection is not affected by the environment and subjective factors, and the results are more objective in terms of value, which is an indispensable standard production tool. The measurement sensitivity of dark parts by density meter is superior to the visual assessment of ink of the deep parts of the light. Therefore, when printing light color field, it is mainly based on the visual evaluation. While printing a dark color field, try to use a density meter to detect auxiliary.
Flock is a unique heat transfer vinyl that gives your design an added dimension given a raised, soft, and textured suede/velvet feel that is a perfect alternative to embroidery. This makes it great for children's garments (ex. onesies) as well as adults (ex. team sweatshirts).
Whether you’re looking for that alternative to embroidery or going for a retro look, flock can help you achieve this. Siser StripFlock, as well as Chemical UpperFlock, can even be layered on top of itself! With a wide offering of colors, you’re sure to find the perfect shade to complement any design for children or adults.
Flock Heat Transfer is a non-permanent flocked paper for producing single colour flock transfers. Transflock is distinguished by a constant and dense flocking and a uniform length of flock fibers. Designs can be transferred without leaving any unwanted flock fibers on the textile.
Sublimation Transfer For Clothes is an indirect printing process. Using sublimation ink-jet inks the image is printed on a special transfer paper and, with heat, the image is transferred to the fabric. The term sublimation describes the direct transition from a solid to a gaseous state – this happens without the usual in-between liquid state. When heat is used for this process, one refers to thermosublimation. This is a process that has been being used for a long time in the textile industry. The actual process starts with the printing of a preferably cheap, special paper. Until recently this was done using traditional gravure printing – simple transfer papers printed with standard printing patterns and graphical elements.
Reflective Heat Transfer Printing is the process of combining heat with a transfer medium to create personalized T Shirts or merchandise. Transfer medium comes in the form of vinyl (a coloured rubber material) and transfers paper (a wax and pigment coated paper). Heat transfer vinyl comes in various colors and patterns, from solid colors to even reflective materials and glitter materials. It is most commonly used to customize names and numbers on jerseys. Transfer paper has no limiations to colors and designs. Individual artwork or images can be printed onto the medium with an inkjet printer to create shirts with your design! To finish off, vinyl or transfer papers are in a cutter or plotter machine to cut the design’s shape and transferred onto a T-Shirt using a heat press machine.
Advantages of Sublimation Heat Transfer printing:
– Allows for different customization for every piece e.g. name customization
– Shorter lead time for smaller quantity orders
– Cost-efficient for small quantity orders
– Able to produce high quality and complex graphics with unlimited options
Heat Transfer Printing For Leather was introduced by John Sadler and Guy Greenway back in the 1750s. The technique was first developed to decorate ceramics, mainly pottery. The technique was well accepted and it quickly spread to other parts of Europe.
Back then, the process involved a metal plate engraved with decorative elements. The plate would be covered in ink and pressed or rolled over the ceramic. The process was slow and tedious compared to modern-day transfer printing, but it was still way quicker than hand painting on ceramic. Later in the late 1940s, thermal transfer printing (a technique more commonly used today) was invented by a corporation called SATO, based in the US.
