Where to Buy Sublimation Transfers
If you aren’t familiar with what a sublimation transfer is it’s an image printed with sublimation ink on sublimation paper. It will come to you ready for you to press onto your mug or other items. This is a great option for someone who doesn’t have a sublimation printer or someone who wants a design that they don’t have the file for.
How to Use Sublimation Transfers
To use a sublimation transfer you are going to follow the directions from the site you order your sublimation transfers from. When I’ve purchased mine, before getting my sublimation printer, they always came with instructions.
You’ll apply the design to your mug with heat tape and press it per the directions from the company. For mugs, I would apply the transfer with heat tape and place it into my mug press until my mug press was done. I got flawless designs every time.
