Transfer paper allows you to print images and text on most fabrics and other suitable surfaces using an ordinary inkjet printer. ... Most types of Inkjet printers and inks would work with the transfer paper. You do not need to change anything or modify your printer in anyway.
Sublimation uses a process where the ink becomes part of the fabric rather than adding a layer on top. This results in a transfer that is unmatched in both durability and feel. On the other hand, heattransfer paper adds a layer on top of the garment.
