How to Sublimate on 100% Cotton!

Today’s video is another sublimation video. Did you know you can sublimate on 100% cotton? You can!

I used this basic white 100% cotton sweatshirt to create this super cute, vibrant sweatshirt using my SG1000 sublimation printer, and my 15 x 15 heat press.

Look how vibrant it turned out! The secret is in the use of PolyTPlus. It is a spray sublimation coating for cotton. Essentially, it sprays polyester onto your cotton products, which gives the sublimation ink something to stick to. Pretty neat, huh!

Keep in mind that sublimation works best with Polyester. The more polyester, the better your results will be. This product simply adds a polyester coating to your fabric. Eventually, the results will fad somewhat. I’ve used it on several shirts for the grandkids and after many, many wash cycles, though they still look great, they are not as crisp and bright as they were when I initially made them.

There are a few things you need to get the best results with this product. I have created a video walking you through coating your cotton surface and how to press. If you want to watch an even more indept video using this product, check out my earlier video here.

Thanks for stopping by!
