I was struggling with an issue where my sublimated ceramic ornaments were often coming out with blurry areas, no matter what I tried. I decided that maybe the surface of the ornament wasn't even/flat enough. This product fixed the issue immediately - graphics are coming out razor sharp! Just wish I had tried it sooner. Highly recommend if you are experiencing issues with blurry areas or inconsistent printing on ceramic ornaments. Note that you will likely need to raise the time & temp higher than what you normally use without the rubber pad.
