Black ugh!!!!

Recommended Posts

Every license plate I have done has turned out great until last night! I am trying to sub a black back ground on a plate and around the edges it looks like it's not subbing! I have plenty of bleed and I do not see this on other plates, do you guys have a opinion on this? Thanks

Maybe you dont have even pressure on your Press?  Try increasing the pressure some more, Black is one of the hardest colors to sublimate

Mr Bill by the heat gun my press is within 4 or 5 degrees on even heat! Now the temp that it says it's at and what it really is is off by 40 degrees. But I have figured out where 400 is and 320 and so on and so on!
