A method that transfers designs from rolls of paper to polyester or other thermo-plastic fibers. Designs are pre-printed with disperse dyes on paper, and under high temperature are transferred onto fabric when both are passedthrough a heat transfer printing machine.

Disperse dyes are the only ones that can sublimate and therefore are the only ones that can be used.
