SUBLI-Flock 5901 heat transfer vinyl allows you to use those bright dye sublimation colors and designs to be pressed onto this material and then transferred onto garments. SUBLI-Flock is short for Sublimation Flock which means it's white flock that is able to be dye sublimated onto. If you are wanting those bright, bold, unique designs on your garment but don't want to cut all that vinyl, SUBLI-Flock 5901 is what you will want to get! SUBLI-Flock 5901 can fit into wide-format sublimation printers allowing you to print wider patterns or designs.

this is great for sublimation to cotton... when sublimated colors are vibrant and look very nice and a plus to this great product is this company's excellent customer service.
Great product! I ordered to put pictures on shirts without having to layer vinyl. The material is a flock with the "fuzzy" texture that is pressed down a little when sublimated. Colors came out bright and true. I cut the design (not mirrored) on a Silhouette Cameo prior to sublimation. I sublimated at 400 degrees for 45 seconds with medium pressure and it turned out beautiful. I let it cool and peeled it from the backing and pressed at 350 for 20 seconds on a cotton shirt.
Product arrived quickly and without damage. I'm very happy with the product and the company!
