Which Paper should I use?

By admin news
Conde has 4 different paper types for sublimation. The selection of paper is an important step in sublimating a quality product. If too little ink transfers to some products your products can look faded and dull. With some products, you will have a problem with ink “blow out” and hazy products if you apply too much ink. Standard Sublimation Paper is a general sublimation paper that will work for any substrate. That would be our "DyeTrans" brand. HTR “Jetcol” Paper or High Release Paper releases more ink during the transfer process. This paper has a 95% ink transfer yield to a Polyester surface. The results are superb evenness and it gives fine image details and excellent contour. This paper works great with soft substrates and will provide a more vivid image. This paper is slow to dry and is not recommended for Ricoh Printers. TexPrint-XP Paper or Medium Release paper will release more ink the Standard Sublimation Paper but not as much as HTR. This paper will give you crisp images on both soft and hard substrates. This paper is slow to dry and is not recommended for Ricoh Printers. TexPrint-R Paper is a medium release paper that was designed specifically for the Ricoh Printers. The Ricoh printers print much faster then the Epson printers. It’s virtually the same as the TexPrint XP however the ink will dry faster enabling the Ricoh printer to use it effectively. In addition, you will find informative videos for configuring color management by the support team at Conde by visiting Conde TV, Conde Facebook Page and Conde Twitter. Look for more upcoming videos and informative blog entries to be added for successful sublimation and maintaining your Conde DyeSub System. If there is something that you think would be better said in an instructional video or blog posting, then we look forward to hearing your ideas.
