Some distributors have already checked the quality of the paper when receiving the paper, but the transfer effect cannot reach the best effect.
This is most likely due to their improper storage of the sublimation paper. The storage conditions of sublimation paper require attention. What is the best way to store sublimation paper?
There are certain standards for the temperature, humidity and environmental quality of the sublimation paper for storage.
The rest of this article will explain a few topics related to this question in great detail. we will introduce you to the storage conditions and the best way to store sublimation paper.
What factors should be paid attention to when storing sublimation paper?
There are many factors that affect the storage time and paper quality of sublimation paper, the main ones are temperature, humidity and so on.
Now, let’s take a look at how these factors affect paper quality.
Perfect condition for paper storage is related to Humidity
First, let’s discuss the effect of humidity on sublimation paper. Your sublimation paper can retain a lot of moisture, so exposing it to moist air is like putting a sponge in a pool of water.
Too much moisture in the paper is not a good thing and can cause issues such as color shift (loss of color accuracy), image bleeding, and uneven transfer of solid fill areas.
Therefore, please store the digital heat transfer paper in a clean, dry environment, and do not stack it against the wall.
Sublimation Paper can be placed in a constant temperature
Avoid hot environment. Pay attention to the temperature of the storage environment.
If the temperature is too high, the strength of the paper will decrease, so the temperature of the storage environment is also critical.
Storage environment can not be bad
Keep the environment clean and hygienic. The dust and impurities in the air should be avoided to contaminate the sublimation paper, causing printing failure and even damage to the printing nozzle.
Sublimation transfer paper should be placed in direct sunlight
Keep the paper out of direct sunlight. UV light can affect the color of some coatings The sides of paper may turn yellow exposed to direct sunlight.
Don’t stack too many layers
In particular, it is important to note that stacked layers should not exceed the outer carton marked the 8th floor.
Stacking too many layers will also affect the subsequent printing effect of the sublimation paper.
What is the best way to store sublimation paper?
Now that we know these influencing factors, how to avoid the influence of these factors? How to store sublimation paper? Here we will give three sound suggestions.
Store in plastic bag or zip lock bag.
Store in plastic bag or zip lock bag can reduce the effect of air humidity on paper quality.
Generally speaking, we will have outer packaging when we ship. To a certain extent, this also protects the sublimation paper from direct contact with the air.
In addition, storing the sublimation paper in an airtight bag also prevents airborne dust from contaminating the sublimation paper.
Store on a shelf or pallet, not on a concrete floor.
Humidity stored in concrete can penetrate the packaging even if stored in cartons or zip lock bags.
Therefore, we can use storage boxes and storage racks to avoid direct contact between the transfer paper and the ground and wall.
However, pay attention to the stacking layers. When storing sublimation paper, it should not be stacked too high. This requires us to choose storage boxes and storage racks reasonably.
In this way, the effect of humidity on paper quality can be reduced to a certain extent.
Store Air-conditioned room.
If possible, store sublimation paper in a temperature and humidity controlled environment.
The temperature and humidity are controlled artificially, so that the sublimation paper is stored in the most suitable environment. This can greatly improve the storage life of sublimation paper.
Of course, It can be used with the above two methods at the same time. In this case, the storage effect is better.
In general, sublimation paper is susceptible to factors such as temperature, humidity and even sunlight.
We need to choose the appropriate storage method according to the actual situation, and avoid the direct contact of the sublimation paper with the air when the temperature is suitable.
Also avoid direct contact of sublimation paper on the ground and wall. Reduce the influence and damage of these factors on the sublimation paper.
If you want the final transfer effect to be good, many details cannot be ignored. It would be a shame if the transfer failed because of improper paper storage.
I hope every distributor who wholesale transfer paper from A-sub can find the best storage way of the sublimation paper.
