sublimation Inks

Recommended Posts

on the sublimation ink you can tell when you get there because the colors are really washed out looking on paper.

Did you remember to remove any protective plastic covering? if it didnt have any of that did you clean it off with rubbing alcohol? For some reason I do that and seems I get better prints. Nice license plate and yeah every photo I take of things I do don't show how great it is either.

Ahhh ok see the output will change when you get the right paper. You couldn't wait hmm sounds familiar to everyone who gets into sublimation.

What are you talking about?

I waited............as long as it took me to get the printer set up, the 10 printer head cleanings it took to get the ink worked through and all the stuff sorted and ready to go.

It was a very long wait. LOL!

 

Oh yeah Macon, that came out great!

I bet you where going nuts waiting too right so technically if you had everything but paper you would have tried the regular inkjet paper lol.

I wouldn't have except I watched a video on YouTube where the guy was using regular paper.....Figured what could it hurt, worst case I would waste a blank....But no, had to turn out pretty decent and make me spend more money on all kinds of other blanks....lol

Made this tag for my Brother today....I realize it has some copyrighted content but does the infringement happen when you try and sell the product? I am really asking this as I want to know the actual answer......

The initial infringement occurred when you clicked "Print" and created an unlicensed, physical copy.  It may even have occurred when you downloaded the original file, but it's unlikely you would be sued for just downloading.  The part that is most likely to get you sued is when you transferred the item to another party - whether it was for free or for pay.

 

There are no hard rules of when exactly you will be be sued for copyright infringement, especially since it's up to the copyright owner - they can choose to let Bob down the street make 5,000 copies and not do anything, and then close you down after you make one.

The best way to be safe is to just not do it and if anyone ever asks if you can make copyrighted items, the answer is always "NO".   What you do between your family and close friends is your business, but if anyone ever calls you out of the blue or stops by your shop unannounced and starts asking, the answer is always "NO".   Don't post copyrighted items on display in your shop - if you make something copyrighted for a friend or family member, don't post pics of it on Facebook or your website - and tell them not to do so as well!  If your friend drives a race car, don't cover it in copyrighted brand logos and then put a big "THIS VEHICLE SPONSORED BY ILLEGAL COPYRIGHTED DECAL DESIGNS MADE BY ME" decal on the hood.

Don't ever believe a customer that tells you they have permission to violate copyright - get it in writing.

Remember that "fair use" and parody are legal defenses - meaning that after you've been sued, you can discuss those in court - it does not stop you from being sued!

If you can't stop yourself from violating copyright, then get the kit to create an LLC (Limited Liability Corporation) and transfer all of your equipment and materials to that corporation before you start - that way if/when you get sued, they can't take your house, car and everything else...

unfortunately that does not protect your assets either - loved business law classes and remembered just enough to look this up

There is a pretty good argument for personal use (I do tons of stuff for myself) but giving it out to anyone is no longer personal and they could argue that you are diluting their market. Trademark law protects that part. I actually tried to get a limited license to produce a couple hoodies for my kids and a very large syndicate told me that wasn't going to happen but that if I was capable of creating my own stuff for myself they had no legal right to stop me. Now, if I started trying to sell them I was going to have a problem and I believe, although they did not address this particularly, if I was to start handing them out to people I would also get in trouble from the dilution clause.

It is never a matter of right or wrong but who can afford the ungodly sums of money on attorneys. I can't but Harley, Disney, Monster Energy among a few have very deep pockets even if they are not right they'll bankrupt you proving the point.

Based on that, it sounds like the LLC can protect you from criminal and contractual issues, but not Tort issues.  I'm going to go out on a limb and think that criminal copyright infringement is a criminal, vs. a tort issue - but I could be wrong...  IANAL - nor do I play one on TV.
