Sublimation Transfer Application Instructions

Heat Press ONLY. Household irons will not work.

**Sublimation requires even heat (400º) and medium pressure for 30 seconds up to 4 minutes depending on the substrate you are using. It is advised to follow the instructions for your substrate.

Sublimation Transfers work best with 100% white or light colored polyester fabrics. For t-shirts, most makers use tees made of at least 65% polyester which produces a vintage look. Sublimation Transfers will not work on 100% cotton and we suggest researching how to apply sublimation transfers before using our transfers. We suggest 100% Polyester for the best results.

White and light colored fabrics work best. Transfers will not show up on dark fabrics. The printer does not print white. Any white shown in the design will be the color of the fabric.

Sublimation Transfers are NOT:

  • HTV (Heat Transfer Vinyl
  • Screen Print
  • Home/InkJet Printed Transfers


  • Sublimation Transfers CANNOT:
  • Print with White Ink
  • Be Pressed with a conventional home iron
  • Be Applied to 100% Cotton Material

  • Products that are at least 65% polyester or specifically coated and made for sublimation. Dollar Tree products do not work.

There are no refunds on transfers. We are not responsible for incorrect application. Please research Sublimation to familiarize yourself.
