    Sublimation Paper different types

    Currently using rolls of Truepix which has always been superb. That said I'm wondering if we can get good results from cheaper papers to help bring costs down.

    Looking to try Texprint XPHR 105gsm and also Subli Print heavy and Subli Print Thermo, when Xpres have stocks.

    Anyone using these papers currently that can give feedback?

    Depends what your substrate is. We had the same thought last year as use truepix 24" rolls and bought others to try. We print mainly hard substrates with some textiles being totes and tea towels. Results with other papers were terrible compared to truepix. Fine detail completely lost. Kept other paper for door mats which do not need fine detail but stayed with truepix and realise you pay for quality.

    I have used the texprint xphr. Fantastic paper, very good blacks and rich colours onto fabric. The only reason I changed to s;race was because no one stocked it in A3+ ( although xpres do now).
    TBH I slightly prefer the s;race, even though the price is high. Strangely, it doesn't work out much cheaper to use rolls instead of sheets.

    For textile i cannot really comment but texprint xphr was the worse for fine detail we found but this was on hard substrates mind.

    I found rolls of Coldenhove JetCol high speed to be the best paper, but I can get InkTec's paper so much cheaper I went with that. Not to say it's a bad paper, just colours aren't quite as good, and it doesn't take as much ink as well, so had to have racks for transfers to dry before using them when we used the 9600 printers, but now we have the HP Stitch which has the inbuilt heater to dry the transfers after printing, this isn't an issue - I suppose also with it being a heat process in the HP head to fire the inks, this probably helps too.
