What Is:

Sublimation Printing

It's a process

It's Amazing

Dye-sublimation printing is a digital printing technology using full color artwork that works with polyester and polymer-coated substrates. Also referred to as digital sublimation, the process is commonly used for decorating apparel, signs and banners, as well as novelty items such as cell phone covers, plaques, coffee mugs, and other items with sublimation-friendly surfaces. The process uses the science of sublimation, in which heat and pressure are applied to a solid, turning it into a gas through an endothermic reaction without passing through the liquid phase.

Sounds Complicated?

It's not, we made the process simple, like printing a document with one additional step!

Print

Print out your design using the supplied Ink and paper on the Sublimation-Enabled Printer.

This is where the magic starts

Press

Place your printout, with the poly-coated item in your pre-heated heat press and close it up. When the beeper sounds your item has been printed and the process is complete

Sublimation Printing is best understood as a printing process.
  1. The ink is not a complete liquid, the ink is made up of tiny dye particles that is suspended in a liquid. 
  2. The dye particles only adheres to synthetic surfaces like polyester, polymer or poly-rich surfaces.
When printing your design on a sublimation enabled printer the liquid passes through the nozzles and onto the paper. Just like a normal printer.
Then your printout gets placed in a heat press with the item to be printed on to.
The tiny dye particles then goes from a solid state into a gas and back into a solid state onto the printing surface.
The end result is a permanent print onto a surface.

Polyester? Polymer?

just coat any surface or buy pre-coated items

Polymer Coating

Coat any heat-resistant surface and customise with Sublimation prints.

No more limits, no more generic items. Take it to the next level!

Some examples of what you can do

These items can either be purchased pre-coated, or you can coat similar items
