- Stick this paper with t shirt by tape, so it can not move during process
- Press the sublimation paper for 2 – 3 Minute
As the electric press machine is heat the sublimation paper at that time ink and garment is react with each other. When heated to high temperature ink convert into gas and pores of t shirt is open up allowing the gas to enter. As we remove heat pores of t shirt close up trapping the ink inside of the item. So we get our final image on t shirt.
