It’s finally here!
Octago’s Premium and professional-grade dye sublimation paper.
Our Premium Sublimation Paper is a professional-grade paper.
Our upgraded coating ensures extra absorption, using less ink in the process (which saves you money). It also has an anti-curl coating added to prevent printer jamming and smearing.
Once printed, simply use your heat press machine to press onto any polyester-coated material or polyester fabric. The maximum amount of cotton for use is 30%. Full polyester fabrics will sublimate best. It is used with sublimation printers (such as Ricoh, Sawgrass, and Espon) and requires sublimation ink for use.
Our sublimation paper also has watermarked backing so you can easily tell which side to print on. Instructions to press on different materials are also included inside.
Of course, if you have any questions at all – don’t hesitate to reach out!
1.Will this work with laser printers ?
No, it only supports inkjet printers with sublimation ink.
2.Can this be used for 100% cotton T-shirts?
No. It’s best to have <30% cotton and the fabric needs to be light in color. If you’re needing to transfer to dark fabrics or cotton, we recommend our Heat Transfer Vinyl!
3.Can this paper be used on dark shirts?
No, it is only recommended for light fabric. If you want to transfer to dark fabrics, we recommend our Heat Transfer Vinyl.
4.Which side is the printable side?
The blank side is printable. The non-printable side has a watermark for ease-of-use.
5. Why does it not transfer?
Please check your ink. You must use sublimation ink.
6. Can I use a household iron?
We recommend heat presses only. Irons do not get hot enough or sustain the temperature to a regular/needed temperature. It will result in a poor transfer.
7. I want to use this paper on mugs, glass bottles, ceramics, or stainless steel bottles – will the paper work?
Yes! But it must have a polyester coating required for sublimation to work.
8.The color is darker/lighter/different after printing on the paper, is that normal?
Yes, this is normal. Sublimation inks are very different than standard inkjet inks and will print differently than what you output from your computer. Once it’s transferred though, it will look great! We recommend doing a test and you’ll see how it looks when it’s finished.
