    This has got to be one of the most confusing threads I've ever read!

    To the OP: What printer are you using for your mugs? What printer are you using for your t-shirts? What inks are you currently using in these printers?

    Until you answer these basic questions then I'm afraid you won't get any helpful answers.

    Ok. Thanks.

    If you are printing without a profile and getting excellent results then you're luckier than I am! :-)

    Yes, you can use sublimation inks on 3g transfers, I've done so myself, but only for tote bag designs which are rarely, if ever, washed. I've never tried this on t-shirts so don't know how they'd withstand washing.

    Why do you print your designs from the context menu? Why not print directly from PS or Coreldraw?

    The tshirts printed with 3g Jet opaque are totally washable no fade at all. I found the colours not great when printing from ps or cdraw.

    Yes I am using sublimation inks with 3g jet, should I not? And could I just use my epson dye based inks?
