    Default Aluminium for sublimation printing

    Hi,

    Looking for some advice on what type of aluminium sheet I need to use for sublimation printing. I want to heat transfer an image, which has been printed onto transfer paper using a sublimation ink printer, to aluminium sheet. Can I use straightforward anodised aluminium sheet (as sold by Cooksongold), or do I need to use pre-anodised and unsealed aluminium (which is what I normally use when I want the aluminium to take a colour), or can I use both types?

    Thanks in advance
    Eva

    Don't know Eva. In the absence of any answers here and a blank from Google, why not try it for yourself? Dennis.

    Maybe try very lightly sanding (e.g. 1200 or higher grit) the anodised aluminium sheet before sublimation printing.
