So what is Siser Easy Subli?

 

In a nut shell, Siser Easy Subli is a printable heat transfer vinyl that is specially designed to work with sublimation printers and inks.

 

The product has been formulated in partnership with SawGrass, and the ink is produced by them for use with the SawGrass SG400 & SG800 sublimation printers.

 

Why is it a game changer?

 

1. It is applied at a much lower temperature to regular sublimation transfers

2. It is pressed for a much shorter period of time

Let’s see what’s so different about Siser Easy Subli!

 

Sublimation On Cotton

 

Siser Easy Subli allows us to use our sublimation printers to create sublimation transfers for dark shirts.

 

It can be used for:

  • light and dark cotton garments
  • light and dark polyester shirts
  • cotton/poly blends
  • even fleece!

 

Until now, sublimation was only for printing on white polyester garments. Also, sublimation transfers needed to be applied at high temperatures at long time periods.

 

Here is a 50 second run down on how Siser Easy Subli works – from Heat Press Nation.

 

 

Low Temp Sublimation Transfers

 

Siser EasySubli transfers are applied at only 310°F!

 

Usually, sublimation transfers are pressed at 400°F.

 

Usually, pressing sublimation transfers at 400°F really affects the garment that you are transferring onto. It is an extremely high temperature that can damage garments and other substrates.

 

That’s why it can’t be understated what an innovation being able to press sublimation transfers at 310°F is… your garments will thank you for it!

 

Fast Sublimation On Cotton T Shirts

 

Easy Subli Transfers are much quicker to press than regular sublimation transfers.

 

Regular transfers are generally pressed for 30 seconds, while Easy Subli transfers only need 15 seconds!

 

This is good because, again, your garments are not under heat and pressure for an excessive amount of time, possibly damaging them. But, perhaps even better, you’re saving tons of time doing transfers in half the usual time!

 

How To Use Siser Easy Subli

 

The best way to learn and understand how to use Siser Easy Subli is to watch the process. Check out these demonstations and tutorials for the full low down.

 

1. Guide to Siser Easy Subli

 

In this first video, Rudy from Siser covers:

  • what you can use Easy Subli on (basically everything!)
  • the pros of Easy Subli
  • how to make a transfer using Easy Subli, the SawGrass SG400, Silhouette Cameo, & a home iron!

 

 

 

2. Dye Sublimation on Cotton

 

In this next video, Joe from Siser gives us:

  • an overview of Easy Subli
  • how to use Easy Subli with Silhouette Cameo
  • a bunch of Easy Subli project examples (fleece, 50/50 blends, 100% cotton…)

 

 

 

3. Siser EasySubli vs. Sawgrass Sublijet-HD

 

In this video, Heat Press Nation have compared Siser Easy Subli ink with SawGrass Sublijet ink. You can see the difference on a range of substrates (caps, t-shirts, aluminum photo panel, 100% poly tees, etc.).

 

The results demonstrate that SawGrass Sublijet ink is better on all the usual sublimation blanks, but, of course, Siser Easy Subli is best on cotton and dark fabrics.

 

The Easy Subli Inks have been formulated especially for printing on Siser Easy Subli HTV, and that is where you get the best results. It’s a bonus that they can also be used for traditional sublimation.
