Abstract
A brief introduction to continuous tone, dye sublimation transfer printing using a thermal head is given. Two problems that can arise in such a method of printing are discussed: density non-uniformities down the page due to the accumulation of heat in the thermal head, and density non-uniformities across the page due to variations in electrical, thermal or mechanical properties across the line of heating elements. Measurements and analyses of these effects are presented. Correction methods are proposed and implemented, and results are shown for each of these problems.
