Many times we have received this question regarding the quality level of the sublimation ink that they use in their sublimation works. But if we regret "getting into this mess", we must consider some factors to obtain the best results.
First, the brand of the ink , with this we do not want to fill your head that buying the most expensive is the solution , but we refer to the sublimation ink that suits you. When buying sublimation ink, ask your supplier to show you images of the results, so you know the level of quality you are buying and if it is worth buying.
Second, the configuration of your printer , it is important to take into account that this affects the result of our image, some cases in which it can affect us are:
- If the colors are very saturated or overloaded with color, we recommend that you consider the type of paper , if the tones are not the best.
- Low quality images or lines , print quality , set to high .
- Check the color correction of your printer, we recommend this option if you are going to carry out tests, do not alter this menu without experience.
Third, check the sublimation paper you use, there are different types of paper, depending on the quality and result you are looking for in your work, we recommend that you try different papers.
Fourth, remember to give maintenance to your printer, if after a certain time with your equipment it starts to print leaving marks or errors in the image, it is important that you take maintenance into account; head cleaning or deep cleaning.
Finally, if at the time of using a sublimation ink you do not obtain and have taken into account all the previous steps, it is possible that the ink is expired .
