Dye Sublimation Printer For Sportswear Application


Why Dye Sublimation Printing is the Best Way to Print Sportswear?

The dye sublimation printing technique, also known as dye-sublimation, involves transferring dye into a fabric using the power of heat. This printing method uses a unique ink type that changes directly from solid to gaseous form when exposed to heat. It involves printing the graphics and images on a special transfer paper placed on the fabric and applying heat. Doing so allows the ink to be absorbed into the garment, becoming part of it.

Instead of sitting on the fabric’s surface, the graphics and images are embedded in the polyester fabric like other printing methods. As a result, sublimation creates vivid and long-lasting prints. Also, it leaves behind a more soft-hand and breathable feel on the sportswear. The best thing about it is that graphics, letters, and numbers will not wear off or peel when washed.

Another reason why dye sublimation printing is the best approach to printing sportswear is economical and sustainable. Sublimation print provides an unbeatable solution to adding a full-design imprint to polyester fabric. Polyester itself is durable and washes at low temperatures. Also, it dries quickly. This means that you’ll spend less on electricity to wash your sportswear.

Environmentally, polyester garments are recyclable. Using a suitable sportswear fabric (polyester) will have a less negative impact on the environment. Another benefit is that dye sublimation can perfectly match Pantone colors, making the sportswear colorfast.

Introducing the Printer That You Need for Sportswear Printing

There are numerous sportswear printer options in the market. However, selecting the perfect printer for the printing job can be challenging. Remember, a poor decision to choose the printer to work with means low-quality printing on your sportswear.

How Many Grams of Transfer Paper Is Best for Sportswear Printing?


With this model, you can use light paper (45gsm) when mass producing sportswear. A lower weight won’t present issues. It can print smoothly and save your costs to some extent.


Of course, you can choose the most suitable sublimation paper based on the humidity of your working environment, ink saturation, and cost, among other factors. Generally speaking, we recommend choosing a higher weight sublimation paper to ensure sufficient stiffness and hardness to avoid becoming damp in a high humidity environment. You use the heavier weight for heavy ink saturation and less weight for light to medium ink saturation. At the same time, the heavier weight of paper means that it may be more expensive. However, you achieve high-quality prints and long-lasting results if operating in a highly humid working environment.


The final choice on the sublimation paper to use may vary from person to person. Luckily, we offer a wide range of grams of transfer papers. We mainly deal with 35g /45g,50g/60g, 70g /80g,100g /120g fast dry sublimation transfer papers to cover your diverse needs.

How to Use and Maintain the MT-P1908A1 dye-sublimation printer?

The MT-P1908A1 printer uses the dye sublimation process. This process involves using heat to transfer prints onto the fabric. The MT-P1908A1 printer uses a three-step approach to print top-quality designs on sportswear. Here is how to use this printer:

Step 1: Printing on the Transfer Paper

First, you print the desired design or image on a transfer paper in a reverse format. When you run it in the key transfer machine, the ink on the paper is transferred chemically into the sportswear fabric. It uses a particular ink type that sublimates and dyes into the material, resulting in a durable sportswear print. Unlike direct-to-fabric printing, this printing style achieves more vibrant images, considering that you can also print fluorescent colors.

Step 2: Use a Heat Press Unit

The second step involves taking the transfer paper roll onto the heat press unit. This transfer paper roll contains the desired graphics or images printed on it. Load it on the top side of the heat press and the fabric at the bottom, ensuring that they go through the unit simultaneously. Doing so ensures that the printed ink on the transfer paper is fully printed into the fabric.

Step 3: Take the Transferred Fabric Roll to the Cutting and Sewing Department.

Once the graphics or image transfer is complete, take the fabric roll to the CNC fabric cutting machine and queue it up on the device. Add black dots on the transferred fabric roll around the print and a barcode to help the CNC machine know what size to cut the fabric. Doing so ensures that you get consistent quality cuts at all times. Once the fabric is cut, place it in its job bin with its job jacket and take it to the appropriate sewing station to be sewn. And there you have your printed sportswear.

Now that you’ve learned how to use it, it’s time to know some basics about maintaining this printer.

When you have acquired this value for money printer, you need to maintain it to maximize its lifespan and enjoy its long-term benefits. Worried about how to go about it? Well, check out our tips to help you maintain this printer model below:

1. Understand How the MT-P1908A1 Dye Sublimation Printer Works

Before starting to print using your newly acquired MT-P1908A1 sublimation printer, first understand its dynamics and how it operates. It is imperative to know which button to press when and other factors surrounding its operation. Doing so ensures that you take care of your sublimation printer because your actions are informed prior.

Regardless of the technique used by your printer, ensure to regularly inspect the dye delivery, head speed, and nozzles. Monitor frequent hardware issues like banding, streaks, clogs, and paper curls to foster timely repairs.

2. Do Not Skip Annual Cleaning

Dust and grime accumulation is unquestionably the worst enemies of your MT-P1908A1 dye-sublimation printer. If you leave it uncleaned, you’re putting it at an increased risk of creating blotchy, unclear, and blurry imprints. Such accumulations result in various hardware problems like jerky belt functioning and unsuccessful ink delivery.

Cleaning your MT-P1908A1 sublimation printer regularly facilitates seamless ink flow while keeping nozzle clogs away. Use low to medium-speed vacuum to remove dust from the conveyor belt, nozzle, and printhead. Cap the station’s extensive cleaning to eliminate any ink residue.

3. Don’t Let Your Printer Stay Idle

Run your MT-P1908A1 sublimation printer at least once per week. Doing so prevents it from losing its prime. If your MT-P1908A1 sublimation printer stays idle for three months, its lifespan is significantly affected. So, always keep it active.
