Sublimation printing is a professional long lasting solution to standard inkjet heat transfers. Dye Sublimation Transfer is a process where you use an image that has been created digitally. This can be done several ways. Either by scanning a photograph or downloading a picture taken with a digital camera or an image created in a piece of imaging software like Adobe Photoshop. We then print this image with an Epson printer using special inks called sublimation inks onto paper, and then transfer the image onto T Shirts or Mugs, Metal, Tiles, and so many things.
The process consists of printing a special sublimation ink through a specific printer and onto a transfer sheet. By using a heat process the sublimation ink can be transferred onto a variety of substrates such as t-shirts and other items of clothing.
The sublimation process is different than standard ink transfers because instead of using a carrier sheet to take the ink over to the shirt or item, the ink actually becomes a part of the item.
Sublimation Printing has a broad range of uses. If you want to print on mugs, license plates and other popular hard surface items then this is the answer! Dye Sublimation is a method of applying an image to specially coated ceramics, metals and polyester cloth. This is achieved by using three main ingredients: sublimation ink, heat and pressure. Sublimation ink is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form. The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time. Hard items such as ceramic, fiber board, metals, etc. require a special coating to accept the special inks.
