Shirts for sublimation need to be at the very least, 50% polyester. The higher percentage of polyester the better as the ink will only transfer to the poly fibers. In addition to 50/50 cotton poly shirts, there are other types that will work.
In no way, what Bella canvas shirt is best for sublimation?
At BELLA+CANVAS, we offer different poly blends (because who wants to wear 100% polyester?!) which we've seen work great with sublimation. Since the polyester is the only yarn that will pick up the ink, sublimation on poly blends creates a sort of vintage, or distressed look.
Along, can you sublimate on 50 polyester? Dye sublimation, or DS, must be applied to polyester-based goods. The process will work on blends, but remember that if the garment is a 50/50 blend, then 50% of the ink will not saturate 50% of that garment. This results in a lot less color. Also, some polyester garments are not made specifically for sublimation.
That being so, can I make my own sublimation blanks?
Yes, it is possible to coat your own sublimation blanks with a polyester coating that can be bought through other vendors or online. For hobby or personal projects, that is a fun way to experiment with items not usually found through vendors.
Can you sublimate on 65 polyester?
If your talking about sublimating a print on 65% polyester 35% cotton the answer is yes. But, the sublimating dyes on the print paper are disperse dyes that will only work on the polyester fibers on the blend. So, the color will be 35% weaker because it will Not go on the cotton portion of the fabric.

Sublimation printing is only suitable for garments that include polyester (100% polyester or polyester blend). Although sublimation is possible on other materials such as cotton, the image will not be permanent as it is on 'man made' fabric and it isn't recommended.
All you need to do is sublimate your image on to the canvas using your regular heat press and stretch the sublimated canvas over stretcher bars to create vibrant canvas prints and personalised canvas pictures.
