How to Avoid Sublimation Ghosting When Digital Printing?
How to avoid sublimation ghosting?
One of the easiest ways to prevent ghosting is to make sure that the transfer paper remains intact and does move at all when you tap your panel to it. Despite tapping the paper to the panel, ghosting can take place when the air pressure develops under the transfer paper. Once the panel is removed from heat press, the transfer paper taped is supposed to be left as it is and wait for the panel to cool down. Once it cools down, the risk is reduced and the transfer paper is now safe to be removed. Giving sufficient time to the panel to cool down will avoid the duplicate image to be created.
There are some people who do the process a little differently. They separate the transfer paper as soon as they remove the panel from the heat press. In this case, it is important to be very cautious and also to remove the transfer paper vertically from the panel. Dragging it along the hot sublimated surface can ruin your work. Instead of pulling the transfer at once along with some fluid motion is sure to keep the panel ghost free. Give panel some time to cool down and then remove the paper quickly at one fluid motion. This will help you bring out a great product.
