How is sublimation transfer different from transfer papers?

Prints from transfers papers and created using a special polymer coated paper but use standard inkjet, waxes, or laser prints. When printing garments the hand (feel) of the garment is superior with sublimation. There is no "decal" effect with sublimation and therefore no chance to peel or crack unlike that of transfer papers. Images from transfer papers are also more likely to discolor over time.
