Default sublimation color question

Is there a sublimation printer that can print white ink, so that it can be used on dark shirts or hats, or whatever non-white item I wish to print on?

There is no sublimation printer that prints white ink. Sublimation dyes the fabric, and you can't dye a darker fabric a lighter color. If you want something that prints white ink, you're going to have to go to direct to garment printing.

Ok, that's what I thought, but someone had said they had a shirt done with sublimation that ad white printing. I can only assume he was talking out his arse. or didn't know the difference between sublimation and direct to garment printing.

Thanks much
