K-Sub is a very high quality white HTV developed specifically for sublimation with excellent colour vibrancy, durability & washibility.
There are 2 options for application –
1. Manufacturer Instructions: Run the K-Sub directly through your printer as a Print & Cut – print, cut, weed, use heat transfer film to move your design onto your item, then press 160degrees for 8-10 seconds.
2. Cut, weed, transfer the BLANK K-Sub using heat transfer film (160 degrees for 10seconds). Press a printed sublimation image over the transferred K-Sub (160 degrees for 25 seconds or to suit your setup)
My Note: I applied this both ways during testing, with the results impossible to distinguish between. When using the Manufacturer method, make sure your sub ink is completely dry before applying the heat transfer film – otherwise the wet ink will stick to the transfer film instead of sublimating the product during the press.
Print onto the rough side of the K-Sub – if you print the wrong side, don’t worry, use a tissue or similar to wipe the ink off (its plastic), print the other side & continue as normal.
K-Sub care instructions:
Wash & line dry inside out
Washing temperature 60degrees Celsius or less.
Do not soak, bleach, hot tumble dry, iron, or wring dry.
**As for ALL sublimated products – keep out of direct harsh sunlight to reduce fading – sublimation ink is not UV protected**
