  • dye sublimation problems

    Hi, new to the world of dye sublimation printing.

    We are trying to profile an Epson 4000 printer with BASF dye sub inks using Photoshop 6.

    Hoping to figure out an inexpensive way other than countless hours of trial and error.

    Any help appreciated. Hope I am posting in the right place.

    best regards,

    Noel

    It isn't just a matter of profiling the printer but also taking into consideration the material you will be sublimating to and the carrier you are putting the ink on. Have you contacted either BASF, Epson, or your media supplier for ICC profiles?

    Your other option is to chart PMS colors and swap em. Images will need to be calibrated to custom curves though. More trial and error.

      These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

      I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

      Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.

      The fee still works out to about...
