As shown in the picture, you need to keep the glossy side up so that it goes in the printer and the plain white textured side is printed.
Another important thing is, as the easysubli is infused as it is onto the T-shirts or the fabric, you don’t need to mirror or print negatives.
Another type of siser Easysubli sheets is known as masks, used for smaller prints put together as shown in the picture. So if you have one big artwork to print, you don’t need the mask.
