Dye Sublimation printing is a two‐step process, where the ink is firstly applied on a transfer substrate, or

directly onto a fabric, and then passed through a heat‐based fixation system to adhere to the fibers.

During this process the color of the sample is changed by both the sublimation process and the

properties of the target substrate.

In‐printer profiling for such applications is currently impossible due to the difficult nature of loading a

heat processed material back into the printer.

In this paper we propose a tool that allows for the loading of pieces of sublimated fabric in the printer,

regardless of elasticity, with the intent of using the on‐board spectrophotometer to scan color patches

and create an ICC profile.
