How do I know the sublimated color is going to be correct without using an expensive blank to test? – As we sublimation producers all know, the image on the printed paper never looks as good as the final transfer. Sometimes you have a project where you have a limited amount of blanks to try or you just do not want to ruin an expensive one. Here is a good way to see if your colors are going to be what you want without wasting anything. Print your file as you normally would then take that paper image and place the image side to a blank piece of paper. Next press the two together in your heat press for about five seconds. Remove the blank sheet, and now your transfer image has brightened up, giving you a good idea of what the final product will look like. The best thing is you can still use the transfer after the color test.
