roll sublimation paper provides an inexpensive way to print your own customized full-color transfer paper.
What is roll sublimation paper?

Transfer paper and printable thermal transfer
Let us immediately understand that transfer paper and printable HTV are completely different! Printable heat transfer vinyl has actual vinyl in rolls. To use printable HTV, you need a wide-format printer that uses environmentally friendly solvents, solvents, or latex inks. These printers are expensive.

Benefits of transfer paper
Now that you know what equipment is needed to use transfer paper, let’s talk about the benefits!
As you already know, a cheap laser or inkjet printer is all that is needed. In addition, you don’t need any special ink! Use the same printer and ink as when printing documents at home.
The transfer paper allows single-layer full-color design. No need for multiple layers of vinyl, which means you only need to press once! In addition, you can get an appearance that is impossible with conventional heat transfer vinyl.
The transfer paper will be attached to your daily clothing such as cotton, polyester and blends!
Use transfer paper to get quite good washing durability. If you follow the correct care instructions, we are talking about 25-30 washes. Please note that when you approach the 25-30 washing point, you may fade and crack.
tacky sublimation paper is very cost-effective for making many garments. Prices range from $1 to $2 per sheet, depending on the size you use.
