Ribbon not available

if this message appears only when you are trying to print, then most likely you have in the printer drivers a different ribbon set compared to what is in the printer.

Heat transfer mug without coating


Sublimation Printing is the most common printing method on mugs. By theory, sublimation is offset printing from a transfer paper to your substrate (which is your mug). Mug Coating is important since the coat is composed of Polyurethane paint which is where the Sub-Inks adhere into. Without a Polyurethane coat, the Sub-Inks will not stick to the surface of the mugs. What you can do in order to print on non-coated mugs is to coat those mugs yourself using Polyurethane paints that you can buy at hardware stores. These are usually used in automotive painting and may cause you a bit for each can.

You have to remember though that Polyurethane paints dries longer than enamels and prolonged exposure to these types of paints is hazardous to your health.

It would still be best for you to look for pre-coated mugs to save on production time and, well, efforts.

And yes, I have tried the above tricks personally as I am also engaged in crafts business...

I cannot understand why you are using sublimation paper on an LED printer which uses toner. I always thought that sublimation printing is used with dye and not toner. Why it worked in the first place is odd. Anyway I reckon you have worn out the fuser and or the fuser is not reaching temperature which is why its not fusing correctly.

I want to use photo paper to print photos and the printer tells me I do not have the correct paper

When you give a print command (ctrl + P) You have the possibility to select the Print Properties. If you press that button, there has to be somewhere a possibility to select the right kind of paper. I don't know which kind of printer you have. This works well with inkjet printers. The settings in your driver has to match the paper you use.
If you have a dye sublimation printer (there is no ink, but a ribbon with coloured dye) you need the right brand of paper, because otherwise your printer doesn't detect the paper.

Hi, I recommend getting a set of Epson ink, run through a few head cleans and repeat the head alignment a few times if required.
Sublimation ink is a lot thicker than normal ink, this means a typical dye based printer may struggle over time. Genuine ink contains anti coagulants which prevent the ink from drying and a cleaning solution within the ink. If this doesn't work you can try removing and soaking the print head in distilled water but I would only recommend this as a last resort and only if your confident in doing this.

No true colours in Epson Stylus Photo 1400

Given that you are using a dye-sublimation ink I have to ask if you're basing the colours you're getting on the results on your substrate or on the finished product (after you've done the heat transfer).

Beyond that you should probably ask the supplier if they have a colour profile for their inks. If not you can look for one of the services available. I can't make any recommendations but communication with this company has been quite positive
