How to Fix Pizza Wheel Marks from your Printer! 3 Easy Steps

What a costly and frustrating issue! Shortly after starting to sublimate, I ran into the frustrating pizza wheel issue. My prints would have lines of dots in them and they’d be visible upon final transfer to the sublimation blank.

After lots of experimentation, the combo of these 3 steps helped fix the issue for my Epson WF-7710. Even if you have a different printer, something similar may help fix your issue too!

If all else fails, your paper may be too thick!
